Tuesday was our monthly clubmeeting again and we were going to try to make these tiny cupcakes . As some of you might remember, I bought Christel`s DVD and cupcake mold a couple of month ago.

We met at Anne Mari`s place, and she had made these very tasteful cupcakes for us to eat while we were working. 554

The Quilt-Store

411 My dream has always been to have my very own quilt-store. But since I started to work in a quiltstore about two years ago, I have put my dream aside. Becouse I couldn`t have ask for a better job than the one I have now. I am in fabric heaven. And my boss is the best. So why not make one in miniature instead. LOL!! And of course I had to put my name on it. :)

413It`s not finished yet, there are still a lot of things to do, but I had to finish the front so it could be a part of the exebition.

412

I am very pleased with it and the way it turned out.

414

The note on the door says “openinghours”

It`s importen that the customer knows theire visiting houres. LOL!!!:)

Have a nice day!!!!!

So please take a few min. and pop over to the both of them and say hi.
