Cupcakes (kinda) and the color blue..




The cupcakes are more little bottlecap pincushions...I think they are so cheery and cute. I really don't know any embroidery stitches and am probably to lazy to learn, so they are simple and sweet...These are for a swap where I will get three in return. I also have a friend who had surgery and she loves the colors blue and yellow about as much as I love pink! She also loves cabinet cards so I altered one for her and am going to mail it out. This lady, I thought was of the homely sort and she actually looks better altered....I love the saying about the shoes and if you look close, you will see a pair of shoes on the card. Today I made a list of things I want to get done and it is huge! I would like to say that it is mostly art and sewing but I think household chores are dominating the list. Better get going on it!

The cab card is great - Sanna will love it. I'm a great list maker. Although it is frightening to write everything down, the feeling of crossing things out as they get done is BRILLIANT!! Good luck with your list :)
