Visit with Aunt

My sister Helen (dark blue shirt) and I had the pleasure of visiting with one of my Aunt's this past weekend. She is our biological father's twin sister. Aunt Ene and our dad were born on Mary 14, 1944. There were 9 kids in the family (5 boys and 4 girls). Our father died when I was 7 and Helen was 4 in May 1970. I haven't seen Aunt Ene since my grandfather died in 1995 so it was good to see her, however brief the visit.

My Other Passion

I have developed another passion. Cake Decorating!!! I took the Wilton method of cake decorating classes at Joann's (when I worked there) and totally enjoyed them. My family is getting tired of eating all the cakes that I make though. LOL!!! Spencer's girlfriend, Alyssa, is also an awesome decorator. Shaw and Faith have asked us to make their wedding cake. And, of course, we made the bridal shower cake. This is a picture of it. The flowers are in the wedding colors, burnt orange and cranberry. Alyssa did all of the piping work and I made the flowers. I can't wait to do the wedding cake in 2 weeks.

Shaw's Wedding Quilt

Shaw and Faith's wedding quilt is done and has been taken to the quilter for quilting. I'm glad to finally have this one done! It is a big one too! I should have it back sometime next week so that I can get the binding on and wrapped for the wedding. The first picture is the front and the second picture is the back.
