The last cupcake mini

So those of you who have been following me for a while know about my monthly mini quilts and about the cupcake minis I made for my girls for their birthdays. The other day I realized that I didn't post them all when they were done.

Tomorrow is my birthday so I have completed the last cupcake mini for my little family. Since I am sharing mine, I thought I would share them all, one last time.

Everyone chose the fabric for their own cupcake and my husband decided he didn't want any sprinkles on his! This pattern is from the book Count On It by Art to Heart.

I also wanted to share with you some embroidery I have been working on.

I know Christmas is over but I bought these the week before Christmas and I was in the mood to make them, so I did. I have 7 more to make. They measure 6" x 8" and will be part of a wallhanging for my dining room. I thought I would get the embroidery done now and then I can work on the piecing and quilting throughout the year. With any luck it will be done for next Christmas.

As a side note, I got a new iPad for Christmas and this is my first post using Blogsy. I have no idea what it will look like and right now I am not liking it very much. If any of you have any tips or ideas using Blogsy or Blogger or any other app for the iPad, please share so I don't rip all of my hair out trying to use this thing! Thanks!
