New Apron Projects and a New Halloween Cupcake Painting

A week ago my husband, daughter, son in law, and myself took a trip to Wichita, KS to visit the Paramount Antique Mall.  It was well worth the trip!  In all my excitement I forgot to even remove my camera from my purse and use it!  Take my word for it though, if you are in the area make sure to stop in and be prepared to browse for hours.  During the 4 hour trip to Wichita, I crocheted the apron in the picture above and wore it the next day while shopping.

This week while watching t.v. at night, I crocheted this little number:

I've also been very busy painting this little cupcake and I'm sorry to say to anyone who is interested, this painting is already sold.  I will, however, be listing the print in my eBay and Etsy stores this evening.

Twyla couldn't wait for that first tasty morsel when she saw this delightfully tempting treat!

What have you been working on lately?
