A couple of finishes

While at work yesterday, I was able to finish the cupcakes! Quite a few of you asked about the pattern. It's Cupcake Party and for 1 cupcake it takes a half yard for the background and a fat quarter for the top or 1 yard of background and still 1 fat quarter for the tops to make 2 identical cupcakes.

Here are the finished place mats.

And Jennifer came into Cincinnati and brought her mom and her kids into the shop so that she could meet me before retreat! Her kids, Jack and Jenna, were too precious and I kept them occupied while Jennifer and her mom looked around. Heck, even Jan got into it offering them pretzels! Jennifer - it was great to meet you and we'll see you really soon!

I forgot to post pictures of the February BOM blocks that I made last week. I was waiting until I was done with my secret project before pressing them and then I forgot to post a picture. These were made with Bubba.

And finally, Linda and I worked the inventory at the shop today. I suggested that we go to IHOP for breakfast so she picked me up and off we went. She brought me my birthday present - Peeps and a coloring book and breakfast!

Very cool! I haven't broken into the plastic yet, but the night is still young!

I absolutely love your cupcake ensemble. I can see the pattern but cannot read the name of the designer. Could you email me at sc at sccarlson dot com with the info? I would LOVE to make this for our granddaughter's fifth birthday in May.
Blessings.
