I thought I'd get this posted much earlier today. Instead of blogging I got caught up in season one of Arrested Development. Before I knew it, all of my childfree time was gone and I had to head out into subzero temps to pick up Ellie from school.
This was a hostess gift for Jen, who threw a fabulous 80's party on Friday night (and loaned me the DVD's of all three Arrested Development seasons). Great party recap here complete with photos.
She had mentioned in a recent interview that a post about cupcakes drew the most attention of anything she's written. Seemed a good enough reason to try out a pattern I bought before the holidays by Portabello Pixies.
All the fabric is out of my scrap bag except for the wool felt. I also used a very large washer (the size of a silver dollar) as a weight in the bottom.

If I don't show up again the rest of the week, I'm working my way through seasons two and three.

OMG, I have no idea how I missed that show when it was actually on the air. I think I caught part of one episode and didn't see what all the fuss was about, or something. I started watching it on Hulu when I sprained my ankle and now I'm almost done with season 3 and there aren't going to be any more! Waaaah!

Oh, and the cupcake is nice, too!

Isn't it a shame when sewing projects can make a girl hungry?
