Cupcakes and Coffee Rolls?

Hola Blogland!  Some changes at work have left me much busier there than usual this week.  These changes are most likely permanent so it looks like I'll be staying super busy, but that is great news to me.  Over these past two and a half years we've had more downs than ups it seems.  I'm hoping this is the start of better things for us.  One thing I think I've learned from this "Great Recession"  is to really be thankful for what we have and to appreciate the small stuff more.  But, enough about that.

Steven, like most men, doesn't really get into quilting.  He'll take a look at a finished top or have a fabric budget discussion every now and then, but thats about it.  Today we were talking about fabric and he starts talking about "cupcakes" and "coffee rolls", it took me a minute to figure out he was talking about pre-cuts such as layer cakes, honeybuns, and jelly rolls.  He just got the names wrong, but I thought it was kinda cute and made me laugh. A few months ago I got a quilting book by Carrie Nelson called Schnibbles Times Two.

 I was looking at it one night and left it on the coffee table and the next day I couldn't find it any where.  After turning the house upside down I finally asked Steven if he had put it somewhere.  He told me to look in the cabinet where we keep the cookbooks and sure enough, there it was!  I asked  Steven why he put it with the cookbooks and he said Schnibbles sounds like something you eat. LOL

Today and tomorrow are being spent working on a few surprises for my Mom's birthday on Monday.  Hopefully everything comes out good and I'll have some pictures to share next week.

Until we meet again,
