Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I do thank you so much for the great comments for yesterdays post. I love to read about what other stitchers use to make the wonderful pieces we see out in Blogland.
I posted the coffee cake recipe over at Blacksheep Bakes - it is super easy and comes together quickly from basic things in the kitchen. I'm not sure what to make for Monday.......
I heard from Sharlotte over at The Happy Needle that the package I sent had arrived. If you cast your mind back to the Fall - I had a Gift-away and she was the winner. Over the past few months I had two bad starts that just were not right - eventually I finally figured out what I wanted to stitch for this Gift-away. I got the piece stitched and finished and gathered up some extra goodies and whoooosh off in the mail it went and has now arrived at its new home. Here is a snap of the piece -
I wanted to have a Sheep of some sort, but I just couldn't land on what my mind was wrapped around. I found this in my "big file of loose charts" - it was freebie from a few years ago - and if I could have found the chart this morning I would be able to tell you from where - I will get that info up on Monday - I changed up the chart a bit to include our initials and the heart. I like how it turned out - I lined the box with a nice red and black fabric. Included in the package were some goodies and Sharlotte was happy - so now all is right in our little world - I so enjoyed making and sending this off so much that I am in the mood to do another drawing at some point soon.......
As many of you may know I do not have a Facebook page - I can barely keep the tiny brain matter together enough to do my Blog - so I can assure you that there is no Facebook for me any time soon. I may not have one but Rico does and he asked a question yesterday there that I thought was really interesting - and he got some odd and thought provoking answers..... so with that in mind I am going to "borrow" the question to see what you all may have to say...... "If you were any kind of dessert in the world, what would that dessert be?" I thought about it and for me I would have to be a Baked Apple .....
or some appley kind of thing - an Apple Grunt or Buckle or even an Apple Cobbler - they are so old fashioned and homey- the apple all sweet and delicious and warm - and with a scoop a vanilla ice cream a winner on any table!! I also think it has to do with it being associated with the Fall, my favorite time of year. Now, what dessert are You?????
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by - do come again!!
