Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks for stopping by - also, thanks for all the nice comments about the stitching stuff in yesterdays post. I do love Mary Beale project/charts and even though they are older, OOP, HTF and only available on the secondary market - eBay - it does not not make them any less good or fun or clever and certainly worth stitching. I think they have a sort of timelessness about them. You know how some charts look dated within 3 minutes of publication. Then there are the "styles" of stitching or charts that come and go so quickly - I think that MB has staying power and I like doing them - they are just hard to find and are only ever charted for DMC. I did work a bit on HB, and also some on Part 5 of the Mystery Sampler, but do not have a snap of either piece.... I spent most of the evening playing "dog chew toy" with the hounds. Why is it that I am more fun to chew than the dozens of toys littering the floor???
I posted the recipe for the Spice Cake I made on Sunday. The original recipe came from the "Mennonite Girls can Cook" Blog. You can click HERE to go there, it is a great Blog, so you should check it out. I also included the little tweaks I made to the recipe. For my version and to go to Blacksheep Bakes click HERE. Here is a snap of my cake.....
It has a great flavour and is a real Fall treat!!
Some friends/neighbors of ours are travelling in Sicily for the next 10 days and we are babysitting their two kitties. Now, I am a dog person through and trough but these two kitties are totally sweet!! I am really enjoying the "Kitty Play" I am getting in the morning and evening! I'll get some snaps of those sweet kitties posted in the next day or so.
I think that about wraps it up for today sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by - do stop by again!!
