Yessery Bob, today's my birthday!
I learned ages ago, if you want to have a nice birthday, do something about it.
I figure once you're old enough to leave home and Mom and Dad, if you're not able to plan your own birthday celebration, then you deserve what you get!
A girlfriend gave me this beautiful cake for my birthday......better yet, it tastes even more wonderful than it looks!!
I won't tell you my age, because it quit changing at 50, but I will tell you this, the year I was born, a gallon of gas was 24 cents and a gallon of milk (delivered to your door in a glass bottle) was $1.00!
Since I'm feeling particularly happy today, I figured I would celebrate my birthday with you!
I completely fell in love with this watermelon quilt on the cover of the Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. The May/June 2010 issue.
It's called Watermelon and Shoofly and finishes at 42" X 56".
A perfect quilt for July.
So for my birthday, I'm giving away the Fons and Porter kit for this quilt.
Doesn't this just scream summer!! Isn't watermelon the official fruit for summer?? In the summertime, when I'm not eating corn, I'm eating watermelon.

I just got the kit in the mail, its never been opened, and here's what's included:
8 assorted red fat quarters
4 assorted green fat eighths
3/4 yard cream background fabric
7/8 yard black plaid for sashing and inner border
black wool for watermelon seeds
5 yards wide cream rickrack
1/2 yard red print for binding
Plus I'll throw in the magazine if you don't have it.
So how do you get in the running for this kit....
I would love to know where to go to get a good cupcake. So to be eligible to win, just leave a comment with the details of the best cupcake you've ever eaten, and where you got it! (and by details, I mean details, no comment describing the look, texture and flavor of a cupcake can be too long!!)
I'm going to add a Lifetime Cupcake List to my blog, listing cupcakes I've tried and cupcakes I need to try. You'll be giving me a jump start on my list by providing the where, all I need to do is get there and eat one. I figure it's my duty, having this Cupcakes 'n' Daisies blog name. Once I've tried all the cupcakes, and gained maybe 100 pounds, I'll start worrying about the daisies.
If you don't have a cupcake comment, then you can still be eligible by just wishing me a Happy Birthday.
The winner will be randomly selected and announced on a later blog. Please make sure I'm able to contact you.
You have through midnight Pacific Time, Saturday, July 24th, 2010 to leave a comment.
If you have more than one good cupcake location, you may leave multiple comments and be entered multiple times. I'm giving you a week, just in case you want to get out and try some new cupcake places.
So that's all there is to it!
Thanks for stopping by!!
