Weekends are too short!

I had a fair amount of work to do this weekend, plus a dog sit, and I tried to help Michael with the weeding. I need to rethink that "volunteering for weed duty".... I managed to twist my knee and strain my back making an unplanned descent (fall!) on the slope.... Grrrr.
I did manage to make some Grip It and Rip It bread. It was pronounced a success by Michael. I'm having fits getting links in my post tonight, so just copy this link into your browser if you want the recipe for the best cheese bread E-Var!

I was feeling a little better by day's end today and climbing the stairs much better, so I spent some time in the sewing room. A certain young lady I know has a birthday next month (not Karen!) and she loves cupcakes....

So I decided to make some cupcake pot holders....

I've been saving these buttons, and holding on to this idea for months, and I finally got around to it. I found an image on-line that I liked and enlarged it until it was what I was looking for and made a pattern from that.



Tomorrow I have a bunch of work. What is it with these doctors who insist on dictating on the weekends.... oh wait. Work is a good thing. Dictation means typing means money means fabric.


But after the work is done, I plan on putting borders on an Irish Chain quilt for the crisis center. Then I plan to start quilting some of the tops I've made, before making any more. I'm saving a double bed quilt for Yvette to practice on....and maybe a twin! But the baby quilts, and the other twin tops made so far, I need to quilt and bind. I don't want to save that for the very end and be looking at all of them at once!

What adorable cupcakes! I can't believe you were able to do all of that and back Mr. B' s bread.

Those are SO cute!! I love the fabrics you chose for them!
Can the cheese bread be converted to Carbalose flour, ya think? I have some of that for making goodies like blueberry muffins and stuff. Not every day, since it is pricey, but it's fun to have bread again sometimes!
Love ya,
