Thursday...

Another week, another cake...good thing there's only one more week of this class! We decided to only decorate one cake this week instead of two, so I let Grace do most of the work. She did the top border, the side flowers and the clown on the cake, and I did the bottom border. I think she did a great job!
The first applique block for my rose quilt is finished and the second one is prepped and ready to start stitching.

I've even had a few minutes to sew! Mary Ann shared some of her stash with me this week and I took two of the FQ's she sent and made up 24 four patches last night. I'll be looking for something to set these with and will put them into a baby quilt for Project Linus. Thanks Mary Ann!

It looks like we're in for a storm tonight and tomorrow, so my girls are hoping for a snow day tomorrow. I'm hoping too....

Your cake looks great! I have those little clown heads in my cake decorating box from 30 years ago -- maybe they're vintage by now LOL! Can't wait to see your rose quilt -- I love applique!

vacuuming in the sewing room.. I'd have to do some major cleaning in order to find the floor to vacuum it. (embarrassing but true)

Your cakes are looking so good. Decorating cakes is one thing I've always wanted to do and never took the time to learn.

Your cake is adorable. How fun to take a class with your DD. Your applique block is great too.

Just stopped by tp say hi and see what you have been up to. I am glad you are working on the hand applique quilt. I like the yellow fabric you have chosen. The clown cake is cute. I do not think I could take a cake decorating class-I would eat the cake each week. I would live to learn to make flowers.
