Sew instead of working on the Mini I moved upstairs, where it is much warmer, and worked on the center block of last years Aurifil QAL. Started with this:
Ended with this:
Not a lot accomplished, I got tired of the blanket stitch so I moved on to the center of the block and will go back and finish up the stitching on the applique.
I was not able to work on the block anymore today because it is my week to take cookies to church so my day was filled with baking. Started out with this:
Gathered up all my supplies to make cookies that I picked out on my Pinterest board that is titled Baking for Church. I ended up picking recipes that were all from Sally's Baking Addiction. One of our family's favorite cookies is her Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies. I have made these quite a few times.
Today I tried three more that we are liking a lot also. First is the Thick Oatmeal Raisinets Cookies. I could not find the Raisinets at the local grocery so I substituted Brachs chocolate covered raisins.
These last two cookies start with a cake mix. One is called Cake Mix Cookies, I used Funfetti cake mixes, and you only add some oil and eggs. The other is Strawberry Chocolate Chip cookies which you start with a Strawberry cake mix as the base.
I have shared the links, just click on the name of the cookie if you want a yummy recipe to make for your family or friends. I have filled our cookie jar for the grands also which has put some smiles on their faces. Of coarse the Bug was hanging all afternoon with me in the kitchen hoping that I might drop something for her to clean up.
I hope you are all having a great weekend, don't forget to hop over to Sugarlane Quilts to check out what everyone else has been working on this weekend. Blessings from our home in the woods!
