Baking Day...2014

No comments:
Spending the afternoon with a kitchen/baking challenged husband,, is certainly quit the task!..
Gary loves most anything that comes from the kitchen, soups, casseroles, bread, cookies, even Jello!

That being said, he really wanted to try his hand at cookie baking...
Oh Dear, this could be interesting... HoHoHo!
Thank goodness for easy peasy slice -n- bake cookie dough.... lol!
and yes,,, he did wear the apron the entire time... lol!
So, he sliced, he mixed, he cookie cutter cut and manage to put his own spin on baking...
We managed to bake 4 types of cookies, a ginger bread loaf and I managed to get 7 cookie gift tins packaged up before Gary could start sampling all the cookies...

All in all, we had a fun time in the kitchen,,,, after 42 years of marriage, who knew! lol!
Merry Christmas from our Kitchen to  yours.

Ok, since I am at the computer, and the weather is looking pretty ominous outside, I have 3 or 4 options,,, sit in front of the 'Idiot Box' (T.V.),  Nope!
Catch up on some reading... I can do that later...
Go back into my messy sewing room and work on some more UFO's...
or...
Catch up on my Blog.... so here I sit... lol!

 Getting into the Holiday Mood... yep, got my red tree and my pink tree up first!
 did a little wool scrap crafting.... a wool & burlap pin for my coat.
 a easy peasy pot holder.. front side...
 and backside....
 discovered 'Stack' stackable-ready to open, single servings of Pinot Grigio wine...
 how clever is that! pop one off, unpeel the lid and Voila' you have an instant glass of wine in a self serve plastic wine glass with out opening a whole bottle.....
 I applied these 'Jambeery', nail wraps... fun orange and pink plaid... Luv Plaid!
listening to some wonderful old Holiday albums,,, yes, the old 33's... on our old Stereo...
 Finished up some projects, this sweet 'Winter' themed Banner and fabric gift tags..
and this sweet machine stitched embroidery is one that I just finished. It's from a collection of Embroidery designs from Bernia.
It was suppose to be a 24x24 inch deco pillow, but then I decided I have way to many pillows, so in stead I turned it into a Table Topper...
Last August, I bought 2 of these sweet kits, one for me and one for a dear (former) neighbor...
It uses 'Moda' fabric... What a great easy peasy, lazy day project.

Well the sun just poked it's head out from behind the clouds, so I am dashing outside to enjoy... we are due in another Winter storm tonight, so I don't want to miss out on even the slightest bit of sunshine... TaTa for Now!

December,,, Already?

Other then that, it's pretty quiet around here... in fact it rained most the day yesterday which gave me an excuse to play in my craft room.... after all, I have a lot of Christmas gifts to get working on...
Have a Happy November...
