This is my interpretation:
Our daughter is a L & D (labor and delivery nurse...not that you needed to know, except then you would wonder what the L D initials on the cradle meant...maybe you would think she has a baby named Leslie Denise. or something like that) and I just thought that being in L& D was occasion enough to try out the patterns...the ones I had seen and the one they became in my head...
Cradles hold little gifts from God...
God lives in heaven...
I can't make God or Heaven....
But I can make a cloud for the cradle to rest on!
So what did my labor and delivery nurse-daughter do?
Take a picture on her phone and posted on FB!
This was not my first.
My first cradle is baby-less.
I couldn't keep my hands off of it.
It was just too cute.
It was all open lattice work.
I must say...It was constructed and repaired several times.
Now, here it sits...all alone...waiting for "THE BOX".Talk about a professional pattern.........I copied in class on a scrap piece of parchment paper. I found the pattern on line....once ( I have really looked). Sorry I can't give original credit. BUT the pattern below was given at a Wilton Class.
The cradle on the cake was made with a solid royal icing head, foot board and bottom with the "lattice" sides.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed seeing the cradle. I hadn't seen any lately. Maybe you've made some. PLEEZE share. I'd love to see them!
