FNSI, Cupcakes, Hello Kitty, Blocks and more Blocks

Serena made these cupcakes as a gift for her friend. I asked her why was she making pink cupcakes if he's a guy? She said he really liked Hello Kitty and pink goes with Hello Kitty. Well, you can't argue with that reasoning. She found this cute marshmallow Hello Kitty. He was thrilled with them. I think it so nice she was able to make someone else happy.  I had a leftover one - one of the duds and oh my was it ever good!! Yum Yum!!!

Okay block time.  I've been working on those Civil War blocks so and steady.  First up is
the basket block.  I'm so happy with this one.  I really thought it would look nice to make the top row of triangles from a different fabric and it does!  (excuse me while I toot my own horn)  And then I just had to add the handle to make it look more complete. 

And second up, is the Seven Sisters block.  You can't really tell but I machine aapplique stitched in red around the stars.

And third up is the cotton boll block.  What you might not know is that Bakersfield is also known for it's cotton, beside oil and produce.  Yep, that's right.  We have lots of quality cotton here and manufacturers like our good cotton a lot.  We ship it all over and they mix with the lesser cotton.  So I really like the cotton boll block.  This was the first time I had made the block.  It was a little different to make with those center angles.

And my lastly blocks are the pineapple blossoms.

With all these blocks that I did throughout the week I almost don't need a Friday Night Sew-in, but I want to do it anyway.  

Maybe you'll join and I'll see you there. If not, that's ok. Just have a great weekend!!
