And the Winners are....

Thanks to everyone who commented about my new blog look!  I'm so glad everyone likes it!  For those of you who were wondering where the fishing rod is, you can go to the About Me tab and you'll find at least one fish!

I gave Mr. Squash a number range and he picked two winners.  Cindy of Sew Cindy and Sue of Cozy Little Quilts are the winners.  Congratulations ladies!

I thought I would make us some goodies for the weekend.  While working out on the treadmill the other day I was watching the Food Network.  I saw the Neely's make these Banana Cupcakes and had to give them a try.  Instead of a molasses cream cheese frosting I just made a regular cream cheese frosting - Mr. Squash's favorite.  I'm warning you, if you made them you'd better at least double the recipe because they will go fast!

Back in March of last year I showed you my new fat quarter cupboard here.  I can't believe it's been a year since I got it.  Would you believe it's now full to overflowing?  Sad, but true.  We liked the work on it so much we purchased another item from them which was delivered the other day.  Say hello to my new coffee table.  It doubles as a blanket chest which we needed badly.  It's made of pine with an oak stain which will darken with age.  We'll be getting a few more pieces from these folks in the near future.

Happy Weekend to everyone!

Just had to check the recipe. I seem to always have over-ripe bananas on hand. I have been baking banana bread in my bread machine lately. YUM! I think I will give these cupcakes a try.

I clicked on over to the FQ cupboard and see that's it's so pretty. It probably is overflowing, LOL, with lots of goodies.

And how long before your new beautiful coffee table will be filled with beautiful homemade quilts to warm you and Mr. Squash?

Thank you so much for such a nice giveaway prize. Mr. Squash sure knows how to "pick 'em", LOL
