It was easy to find my scraps as they were hanging by color in the closet.
I'm not sure how long it took me to get these scraps so they were 12.5 inch square, but it's done now!

Monthly colors and ideas for blocks designed to end up in one end of year quilt.
They start with a cake mix, but make the pastry cream and frosting from scratch.
I think it was the prettiest one yet, and certainly was very tasty too.
We had some friends over for dinner. It was very nice.
My husband and I have been married for 30 years, however, it's really just recently that have figured out a way to entertain together.
I'm taking advantage of this!
|We set up table for the pre-dinner food.|
|Guests brought flowers and additional wine.|
|We put the food here and people served self - |
buffet style. DH grilled chicken and vegetables.
|Table set with green and blue! |
I made the salad that was on this table.
|This year the cake had five layers. |
But they weren't all alike...
|DH and DS got to chatting and missed some of the directions.|
|So the first cake made that day was extremely flat. It was |
tasty though. The first layer was nibbled on and gone.
|It was like a wonderful sugar cookie. This one became the |
fifth layer in the official cake. (they forgot to add the
water, and to blend the batter for 4 minutes.) The
other four layers were really two layers cut in half.
|A wonderful tradition - |
Burnt Almond Cake!
