Updates and Cupcakes

A couple giveaways:

Chris from Always Smiling is celebrating her 5th blogiversary.  Go to her blog to sign up by clicking on the link below.

Victorian Motto Sampler is celebrating her birthday and picking 100 winners to help her celebrate. Just click on the link!

I did finish the Kreinik on the sign. It was not as bad when I remember to cut the thread in short lengths, lol. I had a busy week with appointments and  errands, so I did not get too much stitching done. I have 2 Ls to stitch and the rest of the sign. Hopefully you will see that next week.

I did not get far in Paws and Stripes either. I did finish the lettering.  I hope to finish it this week. Sorry my body is shadowing the picture.

Pat send me an ornament for the Monthly Ornament exchange in The Stitcherhood group. It is so cute. Thank you Pat!

I finished off LHN Summer Splendor into a wall hanging and now hanging on my bedroom wall. I didn't want to put it in a drawer and forget about it. Now my other pieces are yelling "What about me?" I should do a finish piece once a month.

I made and decorated some cupcakes. I still need some practice and a different tip.
 My favorite colors, pink, blue and purple. They look like the patriotic cupcakes, mainly because of the colors I used.
These cupcakes I call "Tie-Dyed" cupcakes. I used blue, green, orange, and yellow. I know I am showing my wild side.

Have a great week!

Your stitching is awesome!
Also, how do you get the frosting to come out like that...would love to do it as a craft with my grandson.
I have always found that your color combinations lead me in the right direction for ideas.
I'm currently working on "His name is Jesus" in black and two shades of gray.
Thank you!
