I saw this recipe on Scrambled Henfruit's blog; I thought the lemon cookies looked yummy...and enough to try. I was right...they are delicious...however, with one hangup...the white chocolate which I was suppose to melt in the microwave...didn't melt enough to "drizzle" over the cookies...so I smeared the chocolate over the cookies...worked just fine. Even with the hiccup, I still would recommend the recipe!

Here's some other lemony pics I ran across on Pinterest...my newest fascination...
In a couple of weeks is my wedding anniversary with hubby...I thought it would be cute to make an anniversary type of banner. It's not anything fancy...however, I've been in a card making slump...I thought it would get me out of it. My analysis is: I didn't get the door open all the way...I just got my foot in the door. Hopefully, in the next few days I'll have a complete turn around, so check back! Here's my attempt at the banner:
side note: super cute bird cage, isn't it...I got it from my oregonian peep for my birthday...I love it!
I got this panel at a quilt store garage sale; I thought it was really cute...and since I completed the BOM quilt...I needed something new to work on. I know what you're thinking...I'm already working on the Broomstick Lace Afghan...well, I need to plan the Camp Christmas a little. And since there aren't a lot of patterns for panels...or at least I looked through my collection of patterns and online. I didn't find any thing I really liked, so I'll need to sketch something for this beauty! I have something in mind...so until then, I'll be working on the afghan.
In the event, you need a really quick baby gift...here it is: a burping cloth. And when I mean quick...I mean 5 minutes or less...honestly, it took me longer to find, print and assemble the pattern pieces than it did to iron, cut and sew the pattern.

Good Morning, so instead of making a card...which I still want to do...I started an afghan. I had some leftover yarn from my niece's afghan I did years ago; I thought I would work with it. It's kinda old school...the method is called Broomstick Lace Crochet. It's sooo pretty...I love the lacy look of it. I've included a tutorial from Red Heart...just in case you want to see who it's done...and oh, and here's my project.
For tomorrow, I would like to make a couple of cards...I'm thinking I would like to create something for the Color Throwdown...with the retro sketch; so check back tomorrow...cool beans?! Oh, and I should have figured out a new quilting project...and did I mention I started a Broomstick Lace Baby afghan?
Good Evening, folks...I have another 2012 finish...Yippee! This quilt was part of a Block of the Month from several...several...several years ago. I wanted to work with in my stash for the sashing, corner stones and border. I knew that was an easy task even though I would end up digging through endless stacks of fabric...just to find the perfect fabric. Fortunately, about a three weeks ago, I visited a local discount fabric store and found this little beauty to use for my border, so I didn't have to dig to far in. Thank God! Now I need to find a border for the flower version of this pattern...this fabric I'll need to venture out to my local quilt store...Check back...to see if I find the other perfect fabric.
