The Cupcake Club was reunited yesterday with Mary. We had a hoot of a time and celebrated Mary's Birthday, Susan's Birthday and just being together before Mary makes the official household move to Indianapolis.
We started with Mary's Birthday. This is the cake I made for her:
This is how it looked fresh out of the pan.
one of her gifts - appropriate!
We played LCR. It's an easy dice game and we play with fat quarters. This month our color was purple. We used the Ouija board as our playing surface.
And who won? Mary.
Mary gave Susan this B-day gift for her new sewing room - love it.
Now a few things from Show and Tell. Here are my quilts that I'm making for my father-in-law and mother-in-law for Christmas. They have been recently separated at the Retire Community that they live in. My mother-in-law is now in the memory center, and doing well. I'll be finishing these up and taking them with us at Thanksgiving (gulp).
This Susan's all hand-pieced antique reproduction quilt; Primitive Hall. It is a amazing!
Susan is an incredible artist and here are her inkings:
She is using this gorgeous purple toile' (be still my heart) for the backing.
Mary brought me this wonderful little prize. I have a thing about sock monkeys and this little "ghost" is too cute!
For lunch we had Pumpkin Soup and Apple Pie Sandwiches. The sandwiches are thinly sliced apples, cheddar cheese, a little bit Miracle Whip on raisin bread and then grilled. They are delicious and easy!
Then Mary took all her loot and flew off to Indy. She'll be moving in her new home on Friday.
I can't tell you how much this group means to us. I encourage all creative people to get together to exchange ideas, inspiration and laughter.
We'll miss you Mary!!
