Two Finishes

Hi there! I'm trying hard to get back on a normal blog schedule. Life keeps getting in the way, along with my I-Pad. I wish it was easier to blog from the I-Pad.

Here are two finishes I've done lately. I made a crochet hook clutch to match my Be Happy Bag.
And I finished stitching my Tahiti canvas project.
I've ordered another project by the same designer, Amazing Color. I hope it arrives today so I can start pulling threads from my stash and start a shopping list for it.
Are you enjoying summer so far? After a few weeks of cool and damp weather, summer arrived in full force this weekend here in New England.

Friday Fifty - Fun With Mr. E

You know by now that Mr. E and I often bake on Tuesdays. This past Tuesday we tried a new recipe.

Mmmmmm . . . Dema . . . my favorite part . . . licking the spatula
Can you tell what we made?
Here's a closer look:
Maybe if Ethan demonstrated how to eat them:
Any ideas?

We made Homemade Oreo cookies. I found the recipe at Bake at 350. They were delicious. I love them with a cup of hot coffee. Ethan prefers the middle and "no, thank you" to the cookie.

Monday Musings

I don't suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder in the winter. I get a mild case of it in March and April and sometimes into May. This past week was a tough one for me. I survived and in the end I found a few items to put a smile on my face. All of them caught my eye at the store yesterday and had to come home with me.

The butterfly and flower fabric is truly delightful. The green is a linen blend. I have the perfect bag pattern to make with them. There is enough butterfly fabric to make a couple of matching items as well.
The cupcake notebooks, notepads, pen and floral zip bag are from the dollar bins. Aren't they adorable. Simple little items to make me smile when I see them.

UPDATE: I finished the bag. Now I can't wait to use it.

On another train of thought, a friend shared this link about the lace on Kate's wedding dress. What an awesome project. How I wish I could be a student at RSN.

Have a Happy Monday. It's my weekend. Today I'm playing with my new fabric and relaxing. Tonight hubby, myself, one of our nieces and her SO are going to the Red Sox game. Tomorrow is a Mr. E and house cleaning day.
