Baking Day Cupcake and Apron Painting

It's finally finished.  As mentioned in the previous post, I've been working on this painting for quite some time and it just never really struck me as finished.  Yesterday I added the apron and that seemed to be just the finishing touch that this little "Baking Day" painting needed.  Check it out on eBay!

Saturday is baking day in Bell's kitchen. She ties her favorite apron around her waist and quickly whips up a batch of chocolate cupcakes for the ladie's prayer group that meets at her home every Saturday evening. A red and white dotted ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and ties in a bow at the top.

Our son, Eric, surprised us with a delicious meal this week.  It was a spicy chicken pasta dish that I can't pronounce.  He collected cookbooks from each place he visited while living in Spain.  My review:

I thought these two items that I finished in our "Craft Night"  get together last night would tie in well with this baking and cooking post. 
I finished my crocheted ripple apron and....

as my daughter, Amber, calls it, my Harry Potter tea towel.

As you can clearly see, I'm still spending most of my time in doors out of the extreme heat.  My yard is living proof that I'm staying inside.


  1. Wonderful painting...

    Sweet crocheted tea towel and apron. It's not your grandma's apron that's for sure. Amber models it very well.

    A son who cooks is a wonderful man to have around. That did look delish. Is he sharing the recipe? One of my favorite recipes is Spanish chicken. My mother got the recipe from a Spanish family she knew once upon a time.

  2. I love the new painting!! Just love it!

  3. Oh my goodness. I love this one.

  4. Oh this is a wonderfull paiting.
    I really love the perspective and the colours you have choosen. Bravo.
    Have a great weekend

  5. I love the painting, Cathie! So cute!

    I've been staying inside too most of the day because of the heat. A little bit of gardening in the morning is it.

    Your pasta dish looks yummy, and your crocheted items are wonderful!
