Pink cupcakes and quilt

Oh wow, I know it's been a long time since I last posted but didn't really realize just how long. I did get a lot of stuff done while not posting though. I got my pink room almost all done but not painted yet, that will have to wait awhile now. So I get it all done how I wanted it over the weekend and tonight we hear this very loud crash coming from that room. I ran in there and the quilt shelf hanging in there came off the wall crashing to the bed. I had 4 tea cups along with other stuff on the shelf and can you believe nothing on it broke, the shelf did hit a little pitcher I had hanging on a hook next to the bed and broke it. I will post the pics of that later. Now what am I going to do for that wall... the shelf broke to pieces. Oh well no biggie I will come up with something, hey a good reason to go shopping I guess.
I think for Pink Saturday I will post pics of how it looks so far, so be sure and check back on Saturday.
Tonight I am posting pictures of cupcakes I made for hubby to take to work tomorrow. I asked him if the guys that work there are man enough to eat pink cupcakes, he said they don't care what color they are, they just love sweets. I'm not sending the ones with the sugar flowers though, just the first pink ones here.

I love making cupcakes

And now a few customer quilts to show. I love quilting and this first one is a really old one. Wish I had a better picture to show, it's all hand sewn. I did an all over meander/stipple pattern for her.

Another pretty one.

And another pretty one. I am so behind on post quilts I will never run out of pictures for you to see.

This is kind of long but please read.

YOUR BANK ACCOUNT This is AWESOME....something we should all remember.
A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready. As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window. 'I love it,' he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy. 'Mr. Jones, you haven't seen the room; just wait.' 'That doesn't have anything to do with it,' he replied... ' Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged .. it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it 'It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away. Just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you've put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories! Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.' Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1.. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

Thanks for stopping by and see you on Saturday for Pink Saturday.
