Lynne's birthday is tomorrow, Valentine's Day, and I made her a fabric birthday card, which all signed, using pictures taken at previous bees. The Cherry Pudding Cake was her "birthday cake", complete with a candle in the form of a question mark!
All seemed to enjoy the two soups, and most sampled both--chicken noodle and Three Tomatoes, with smoky salmon spread and crackers. When they first arrived, I had a fresh cranberry/orange/walnut bread with either butter or whipped cream cheese. For dessert after the soups, I made Cherry Pudding Cake, which all seemed to enjoy. I've linked three of these recipes--they are truly winners!
Now here are some pictures of the China Dolls at work:

Notice that the Three Boys quilt is now hanging on the wall!

|Rita sewed the binding on this old quilt, which she had restored for an|
in-law of her daughter. A charming quilt! Bow-tie pattern, with
a great variety of very old fabrics.
