Another busy Sunday.  I'd love to say that I'll be quilting all day, but the family is getting together to celebrate my brother's 50th birthday.  I spent my morning making cupcakes - white cake, white buttercream icing, gold paper liners and gold sugar topping.   Besides quilting, I love to bake and don't mind taking a little time away from stitching.

I had these great crystals to decorate the cupcakes, but there were no hangers to go with them so I created a DIY project and made my own - nothing but a little beading wire and nifty pliers.

So what do you get someone who's got everything and is entering their "Golden Years"?  Money is always a great gift, but seems so impersonal to just add it inside a card.  I took the bills, rolled them and tied each with gold ribbon; tossed them in a zip sandwich bag and topped it off with a little poem.  I hope he likes it!
