Curtains and Chocolate Cake

 I had some friends come over last Friday for chocolate cake and fellowship.  This is the best recipe ever and always tastes great!  You can find it here.  It always turns out great, it is very rich and moist!
 I love my new tablecloth, I bought it a couple of years ago on clearance at Kohl's for $5 and had thrown it in my fabric stash.  I found it while sorting my fabric.  Unfortunately, Muffin seems to like too, he never gets on the table so I don't know why he was this time.  Don't worry, it is in the washing machine now!  LOL
 My husband is decorating his office in Route 66.  We have traveled from California to Amarillo, TX so far.  We still need to finish it up from Amarillo to Chicago.  You can see pictures here.
 Here is a closeup of the material we bought at Joann's Fabric store.  I'm slowly collecting different RTE 66 fabrics to make him a quilt.  Shhh, it's a surprise!
I actually made two curtains, but he only hung up one for now so that I could get a picture.  That's all of the sewing that I have done since I moved here.

What have you been sewing lately?  Have you ever "done" Route 66?

Yes, we did St Louis to Oklahoma using the original guide which will take you to all sorts of semi paved roads. It was fun but we ran out of time to go further but did enjoy camping along the way.

I have not done Route 66, maybe one day. Your cake looks delicious. Can't eat all that chocolate for a while :-(

Great job on the curtains! That will be a cool office theme..
I've made a version of that cake but it has cinnamon in it. Sounds strange, but tastes really good…

I have done part of Route 66 Barstow to Kingman where we broke down in 120 degree weather.

Cute curtains.

I've only done parts of Route 66. We lived near the blue whale (OK), and, we visit Funks Grove (IL) for maple sirrup (sic) every year. I've been on parts of it in OK, MO, and IL, along with the Caddies outside of Amarillo (TX).

Mmmm... That cake looks de-lish! The table cloth and curtain(s) look great! No, I have not done the route as I live in Canada, but I have done some road trips in my time.
