The start of something sweet

As part of my 'get stuff stitched that I've been wanting to stitch for a while--before the baby comes' are these patterns of sweet treats from Aunt Martha's--Death By Chocolate.  I want to do most of them and hang them in my kitchen. I've started with the cupcakes.  

My plan is to use fun, bright colors with the red being a color represented in all of the pieces.  

Don't they look good enough to eat?

Next I'm working on the hot fudge sundae---yummy.

I also want to start on this large cross stitch--you can see it's yet another thrift score for a whopping quarter.  I think this will go so well with all the other pieces I've made for the baby's room!  So all of this combined with working and getting the baby's nook ready I'm staying pretty busy.  

In other news:  My Mr. Robin piece was mentioned in a blog post from &Stitches!  How exciting!
