It's NPNT (Nice People Nice Things) Wednesday again already! I so love doing a stitch along - it really helps me to take the time to sit down and enjoy stitching one of these blocks every week - thanks Maria and Vickie, for stitching with me! Now seriously, these girls are doing such a cute job on their blocks so be sure to visit them! I've been enjoying stitching so much since I started the new schedule (both by hand and by machine)
so I stitched the "Stitching" block this week! Now, I didn't get it until it was too late that what's going on in this block is blanket stitching of the heart (i.e. the thread should all be the same color), but I really liked it being so colorful, so I left it - errors and all :o)!!
Some people just make the world a brighter place with their kindness (Random Acts of Kindness), and my e-mail friend, Sharlene, is one of them! She sent me the most wonderful gifts in the mail this week just because, just to be kind, just to make my world a brighter place! And, boy, did she brighten my day. She sent me an adorable stocking, and these lovely red tea towels for my kitchen.
I've been a BLB (Busy Little Bee). Oh how I love Mondays (Baking) and Tuesdays (Sewing)! Baking days get a bit messy around here - I go through a lot of dishes
but I figure I must have burned a couple of pieces of cake and some cookies worth of calories washing those babies! I made the best chocolate cake I've ever had. It's a Barefoot Contessa recipe - you can find it here! The batter is really runny looking - but it turned out perfectly!
I also baked "Snickerdoodles" - as I didn't think one cake would tide us over for an entire week!
Better scoot - we're making Chicken Salad Sandwiches for dinner, and McStudly is working on the chicken! I think I'll add some cheese and bacon - because pretty much everything is better with cheese and bacon!
