Last night when I got home, I was so tired. I was in the bed by 9pm; however, in the meantime, finished the front of the scissor fob from Jolene's giveaway and it's in a beautiful Weeks Aztec 30 ct red linen. 1 strand of thread called for.
Passionflower Scissor Fob
design by Shepherd's Bush
gifted to me by gracious Jolene from Dip Diddley Designs with the matching Gingher scissors. I used them while stitching this and they are awesome!
the back of it stitched today.
Putting those aside to finish tomorrow when my eyes are better in the morning.
I also designed one this week and stitched a bit on it. Actually for a friend's birthday, Tanya Anderson, The Sampler Girl....Happy Birthday! Here's a sneak -a- peek-a-boo~~
using Tylor Boy Blue by Crescent Colors
Love this blue shading effect it's giving it on 32 ct Natural Belgian linen
It's also loaded in the big frame.
And so are others. I flit from one to the other........I love doing that.
In the meantime, I had a craving for comfort cookies and found this in the pantry that I didn't make for Christmas. I opted to make the ginger snaps instead of the ginger bread men.
Anyway, they turned out really, really good!
1 tbsp of water
1 package of basic mix
1 stick of softened butter
and one ounce of love
It was fun just getting my hands in there and making those rounded balls---great stress relief!
pressing with a fork and a little sugar.
then pop into the oven and the house really smelled so yummy!
and they were soft and chewy and oh so gingery. Valentine's is coming up and this will, I promise, melt your sweetie's heart.
Here's the first round. And, it made 3 dozen in all. I think we ate 2 dozen already with hot tea this afternoon. Here's to a light sprinkling of snow.
And speaking of SWEET!
I was gifted on Thursday with this RAK in the mail. Very sweet Catherine sent me this Delft pattern booklet and floss, AND buttons of which I love all!!!!!
She sent me a note that the pattern would be coming but I never expected all the buttons, pins and floss as well!! Thank you so much Catherine!
You are sweet as a cupcake.
Lovely buttons in many colors!
I love Delft.
Here's hoping your weekend is going well too.
