It snowed last night. Sheesh. You would think it was the end of November. Oh, wait. It is the end of November so I guess I really should not complain. But I think I may whine.
Nothing in, nothing out to count. I was able to get two quilts cut out of the Quite Contrary fat quarter bundle and the pink I bought last week. Then I sewed up a bunch of blocks. Hopefully I will have something that I can count next week.

I thought I would get some sewing done yesterday but I was distracted again. This time by cupcakes. While in Las Vegas I picked up a half dozen cupcakes from Retro Bakery. A couple of flavors I wanted to duplicate. So I made the cupcake from this vanilla recipe.  The frosting is Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream and the coating from a Martha recipe. The cupcakes on the right are dipped in Butterscotch topping (Retro calls them Hopscotch) and the ones on the left are dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with salted peanuts. (Retro calls them Drumsticks after the ice cream treat). They are both very, very tasty.

One member of my quilt group has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The out look is very good since it was found very early. She will still undergo chemo and radiation to be safe. Our group is making a comfort quilt for her. It is based on the French Roses pattern only we are not doing the raw edges. Here are the three blocks I am appliqueing.
I quilted a queen size quilt for hire last week and I have another one to do next week. My buds are getting their Christmas tops done and need them quilted. This is working out for all involved. Hopefully I will get more sewing done this week. I hope you do to.
