Vacation, Day 1

I'm on vacation! What did I do with my first day off?

I read a book. All the way to the end. I finished it before Eileen finished hers. Neee-ner, neee-ner, neee-ner, Eileen!

I finished making the cherry stems thicker.

I cleaned the house.

I made cupcakes! (No watching calories on vacation, right?!)

I made more applique pieces--but you'll have to wait to see what they're for. Maybe on Day 2 of my vacation.

Would you like a cupcake? I made these for you--I knew you'd stop by!

Oh, I expect those cupcakes for the coffee break this morning. Wwhere are they? Just a picture.

Was it worth spending your first day getting ahead of me reading "The Winding Way" ? Shows you who has the most to do.

The cherries look soo cute. Good luck with the rest.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day. I haven't gotten that book yet...guess a stop to B and N would be in order today. Does coffee go with the cupcakes?

Love the cherries! :)

What yummy looking cupcakes, but not such a good choice as I sit here at 9.30am, although it wouldn't be hard to give in.....

Can't think of anything I'd like more at the moment than stopping by for a cupcake, a cuppa and a chat!!! Shame I'm at work and an awfully long way away!! Maybe next time!!!! Enjoy your holidays.

no thanks, I like to have some sprinkles on my cupcakes!! Did you use the whole jar? I think you are making little polka dot mice! Or maybe flower petals?
can't wait to see!

Hi Kim,
What a nice way to begin a vacation- chocolate cup cakes, a good book,a clean house and time to get a little quilting done- a girl couldn't wish for more ;0)

I enjoyed reading about the Orphan Train Children- thank you for the link to Amy Zemke's site- I will check it out-
I think it was you that recommended
"These is my words" - the diary of Sarah Agnes Prine. I loved it and have the other two books in the series. It was a wonderful story about life on the Oregon trail.

Thanks for sharing what you are reading- its always nice to get a book recommendation.

Enjoy your time off- I will look forward to seeing your next project.
