remember me

It's back from the framers! That was fast! They actually got it done in one week, it just took me another week to get back over there and get it...





Blackbird Designs Remember Me, from the Tokens of Friendship book.
Stitched on 40 ct. Autumn Gold with called for threads.

Wanted to share my mother's day cake with y'all, it was from Janie's Cakes....



Janie's Cakes in Tyler, Texas


A sweet friend of mine got me the lemon one for my 40th birthday a few years back...it was SO delicious. Well, I hadn't had one since then, but when my friend Patti and I were in Central Market the week before Mother's Day, we rounded the corner and saw these sitting on a table...I'm pretty sure I squealed like a little girl because you just don't see these in stores! They are very good, and have been reviewed in Country Living Magazine and others. Patti got the lemon one for her family and I ended up getting this one for mine, it's called "The Saucy Jane", for chocolate lovers, it was wonderful! It said on the Janie's website that the cakes would only be at Central Market through Mother's Day weekend, but Patti and I were there again today, and they still have them. I'm telling you all this because if you live close to a CM, you should go and get you one, they are totally worth it. I didn't get another one today, and now I'm kind of regretting it! The shipping costs on these are pretty high, and obviously you don't pay that at CM :-)

Thanks for visiting! Have a great weekend :-)

It is so gorgeous!! I think Autumn Gold is my favorite color of linen. That frame is so unique and dainty- fits the piece perfectly.
I might have to take a jaunt over to the CM in Southlake and see if I can't find one of those cakes!
