What a pleasant surprise to get home today and find that Anne and Dandelion and Daisy are new followers. Welcome. I hope I live up to your expectations!
I was away most of the weekend, so I did not do much sewing. Before I left early Saturday morning, I did make a couple of new cupcake star blocks. I changed the four double-point blocks to something wider and added a dark chocolate color for the center point. I like this better.
I do need three 12-inch cupcake stars for the table runner. I tried the striped cupcake block (the one that Patti correctly identified as for the "younger at heart", which I took to mean more whimsical).
I decided to finish the 5 four-inch sections needed to complete the center before I post this. I am watching 'Cupcake Wars' on FoodTV as I sew. How appropriate is that? LOL.
Here is the new center:
Now I will put in even more of the chocolate brown with the last four sections:
So here are all the sections (not yet sewn together) as well as as the beginning of a YUM banner:
