Before I went away, we had a visit from Mary! So the cupcakers were united for a lovely afternoon on Jill's porch.
Jill planned a little project for us. Pie pin cushions - so cute!
**added on Friday: Pattern Credit should have been given to "Chitter Chatter Designs". Here is their website if you are interested in the pattern: Chitter Chatter
First step was to make circle that would fit our little tins. We made lattice topping with pre-sew strips.
Look at this handsome devil! It's Jill's new Golden-doodle, Carson. He is such a good boy and so friendly.
How luscious to sew on the porch. Here is susan doing a little machine work, so serious, lol.
I love this photo of us all doing our thing - I wish I could remember what was so funny!
What a lovely simple lunch for a hot day - thanks again, Jill! Best pasta salad - ever.
Here are my watermelon decorated cupcakes on Jill's super cute cake stand. She has a wonderful collection of these. I just used colored frosting and mini-chocolate chips.
We made little muslin pouches to hold the walnut shells. You can see Jill cinching up hers. Before stuffing, we added a little gathered flute of fabric to represent crust.
Susan getting some serious Carson love -
Here is our best Country Living pose -
Just for fun - I picked this up at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
He is a "hub man". So now I can keep the ipod and both camera USBs plugged in. Look how happy he is to be helping me :)
I hope you have a fun day!
