Feline Friday on quilts

I get colder than my husband at night, so I have the regular quilt on the bed and then I put the barn quilt for my side of the bed.  I have a king size bed so my barn quilt would be perfect for a full size or twin size bed.  The cats love it though.

 Muffin is the only cat who would let me put the hat on him, he is so easy going.

 Pippi and Boots love each other!
 Custard is like, "are you serious?"
 Tiger wanted under the quilt.
 This has been Pippi's pillow since she was four weeks old, she would sleep there with my hand on her to make sure she did not wake up and have to go potty.  She still loves this pillow.  You can see some of the back of the barn quilt.

Have a great weekend ya'll!

The Pink Chicken

Our local Ava Art Guild has a craft class taught by one of the members every month.  It is free.  October's was painting a gourd.  Suzy used polymer clay to make the chicken features then we painted them.  She was expecting us to paint realistic looking, but I'm not that talented.  She was surprised when she saw me painting mine pink.  LOL
My friend Marisol came with her kids too!

Party Planning

I have missed blogging and sewing.  I have been super busy. 
 I had a Lula Roe party last week.  I told myself that I was preparing too much food and I am still eating the leftovers.  It is better to have a couple of wow foods, than a lot of food that will not get eaten, for a small party.  I had five ladies and four preteens at my house.  
I made savory Parmesan thumbprint cookies.  stuffed jalapenos, pumpkin spice mini bundt cakes with this recipe.  I also made some truffle brownie cups.  Doritos and olives.  I would have been fine with one dessert, and baking one appetizer, with the Doritos and olives.  I would have saved myself a lot of time and stress.
 These were my pumpkins, I put two cakes together.  It would have been easier to just put one mini bundt cake on each plate, because that was too much cake for one person and they were shy about cutting the cakes for a piece.  Here is the glaze I used.  I always sprinkle these cakes with cinnamon on top, anyone can decorate these cakes.
I love my new mini fluted pan.  I sell Pampered Chef and was able to earn it free.  My husband is urging me to get a second one, just like you would have two cupcake pans.  These pans hold half a cake mix each.  Let me know if you want one!

I also had a small version of a hot chocolate bar.  I didn't do anything "cute" with it, but I think it tasted good!

The girls begged me to let the cats out of the basement so they could play with them.  Pippi made herself comfortable here, after we shooed her out of the tub of leggings.  Silly girl.

I love having parties.  The best part was I got a Carly and a pair of leggings for free!
Excuse the picture, I was so busy cooking too much food that I didn't have time to do my hair or put on makeup.  LOL
What excuses do you use to have a party?
