Shortcake


My friend shared a recipe for shortcake that was more like pound cake, or perhaps gain a pound cake. It had an entire brick of cream cheese in there. I'm sure that can't be healthy, but wow-yum!

This strawberry deserves a pound cake of its own. It's an applique block that I made as part of my mom's birthday gift a couple of years ago. Getting it done on time is a super funny story, must tell in a future post.

Today I learned (for the millionth time) that if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. Thankfully I was just an onlooker, but anyhow, not a bad reminder for us all I guess. In case you want to hear something inspirational and nice...here's my usual pick me up.

That block is adorable! I'm such a strawberry addict I love them in anything - quilts or desserts...

I often find strawberry appliques a little "off", but you've found the perfect red for those berries! I so wish I didn't have another 2 weeks to wait for them in my garden....

Marisa! I just was looking at that block today in my as-yet-untried Applique Delights, thinking, now that I know how to applique (thanks to YOU! XOXO) I can try this out!

How funny.

I love those srawberries! All these beautiful quilts in your blog are getting me inspired for the next doll quilt swap!
