Well here it is Friday already. Where had the time gone? I've been home for a little over a week and I'm still unpacking, sorting and donating things. I've hit every under-the-bed container and every closet in the house so far. I hope to get it all done over the weekend so I can finally sit and relax. Oh...and STITCH!!! I really miss my needle and floss. I am so close to finishing a few things. Sorry, no pics right now. Nothing has changed with them since the last time I took pictures.
I received a couple surprises in the mail when I returned home. Denise sent me a little "thank you" for sending her one of those books I had offered to my followers. I am such a dunderhead though! I took pictures of it and now I can't find them anywhere. It's some lovely caramel/gold trim I can't wait to use and the cutest little measuring tape charm with a few adorable buttons. Thank you Denise! Sorry I can't find those pics. When I do I will be sure to post them.
I must have taken those pictures at the same time I took the ones of my giveaway winnings from Barbara. DRAT!! It was several "Fine Lines" magazines, a couple charts and a few other things I am so thankful to Barbara for offering on her blog. I will add these things to my stash until I can finally sit my fanny down in the big girl chair and stitch till my little heart's content!
Since I have nothing stitch worth to report I will leave you with this....
I am always trying new recipes that I find online. Some are winners and some are "what were they thinking?" I was careful to copy the recipe down correctly and measure everything as instructed, and this is what I ended up with.........
Flat puddles of gooey "cookies". UGH!!
So I added over a cup of flour to the left over dough and tried it again............
Much better this time. Obviously there was a mistake with the recipe as it was presented online. I haven't decided if the mistake was too much butter or not enough flour. It doesn't matter though. Masterchief has said they are too sweet for his liking so I probably won't make them again. They are made with dark brown sugar, choc. chips, crushed chex cereal and marshmallows. If I made them again I would probably use light brown sugar and skip the marshmallows.
That's all for tonight dear friends. I wish I had something stitchy to report. Soon. Very soon.
In case you haven't noticed, I still have April's IHSW and TUSAL dates on my sidebar. I guess I need to change that, huh?
When I can sneak away from a closet or roll out from under the bed I sit and peek in at as many of your blogs as I can cram in to a few moments. I'm slowly catching up. Big hugs to all of you who have welcomed me home. ♥ Big smiles ♥
Masterchief and I wish you all a very happy Memorial Day weekend.
