Mmmmmm cupcakes. Didn't we call them patty cakes?  These cupcakes are calorie free and were fun to make. A very talented lady at one of my quilt groups is running a monthly Cupcake BOM. Each month the cupcake depicts a theme. We were instructed to do whatever we wished with the blocks and to add our own creativity if we wished to do so.  The first block was to be Australia Day.  The  Australia was included to trace and I chose to use it. But, I also added a little mouse who was eating crumbs. Tassie has fallen off and some sprinkles too. I added some flies to Australia to hold the applique down. ( Even though my hubby thought they were crows!!!! Grrrrrr)

Then came Easter. I added the Easter Bunny.

The next one is Anzac Day followed by Mothers Day but I haven't started them yet. Meanwhile, I decided to search for some border fabrics for my "Sew, Laugh, Love" stitchery I completed. So, today I ventured out into the rain and came home with the fabric I wanted plus some organic cotton yarn for some knitted knockers ,( I shall tell you more about that next time), a Cottage Garden thread I needed to replace as I have used the particular colour up in a mini swap AND some lovely Seasons threads.

Can you feel the joy seeping through cyberspace? Hehehehe. Finally , I would like to invite you to a big Quilt In on August 2nd down here on the Mornington Peninsula. Our 3 local patchwork groups ( 2 of which I am a member) are running this fabulous event. If you purchase tickets prior they are only $7-00. If you pay at the door they will be $10-00.

 It would be fantastic to catch up with a few bloggy friends on the day. The Peninsula is really easy to get to via the new Peninsula Link.
Thanks so much for stopping by again. Angel Blessings to you all.
