Thank you all for the lovely comments about the Happy Jacks tutorial and my decorating ideas. I haven't answered each of you individually, and so many of you are no-reply bloggers too, but I wanted to let you know I really do appreciate your kind words.

And to show my appreciation, I made you some cupcakes. Would you like one?

Chocolate with homemade vanilla buttercream frosting. Yum! I had a little mishap with the mixer though. I THOUGHT I was pushing the "eject" button to release the beaters but instead, the beaters started up again, splattering streaks of chocolate cake mix all over me and all over the kitchen I had just finished cleaning. I hate it when that happens! Hubby didn't seem to mind much, though--he was sitting out in the garage, tinkering around with his creations, when I came out and stripped bare naked--the laundry area/washing machine is in the garage as were some clean clothes. He thought I was going to put on a show for him, but he had to settle for a cupcake instead!

This quilt COULD BE YOURS! If you haven't done so already, and if you'd like to win this Happy Jacks quilt, please leave a comment on yesterday's post. A winner will be announced on October 1st.

Hi Kim:

First the great hallowe'en quilts, then the applique lesson and now some yummy treats.

How do you get it all done?

Great as always.

You don't suppose he mixed up the buttons on the mixer on purpose do you? :o)))
