Gooey Goodness

I am so happy ds’s school has unbent enough to allow food to be brought in for parties. So I made Peanut Butter Brownies Ds really liked them & they have the added bonus of being something I don’t really like. (Peanut butter & chocolate? I’ll pass thanks.)

So he came home from school wired out of his head on sugar & with at least two fistfulls of candy for later, but happy so what the hell. Christmas Winter Break happens only once a year.

On the stitching front; ain’t done a damn thing. So I’ll be finishing up ds’s Quillow in my room with the door shut or at night after bedtime. My own fault, like that’s unusual. New Year’s Exchange is still in a holding pattern. And I’m itching like hell to start about 4 new projects. Catch The Wind, A New Beginning, A Celtic Band Sampler, & The Princess & The Pea. That’s not mentioning the other 5 that popped into my head while I was typing those four.

Ok, so my reward for finishing NYEx will be one new start. And while I haven’t been stitching I at least got 3 more books read. Unless Nora Roberts puts out a trilogy that gets 5 star + ratings I’m just not going to bother anymore. I really prefer her stand alone novels much more; and when I’m in the stitching swing of things I just don’t have time to waste on so-so books.

    Mistral’s Kiss arrived in the mail yesterday…so that has trumped everything else for a bit.

    The brownies do look yummy! But then, I like pb & chocolate…

    Those brownies look delicious!

    I looked the patterns you are planning to start, and they’re all fantastic. Is the cricket collection one quilting or cross stitch or a combination?

    Karin, it has quilting fabric appliqued for the bedding. Or you can do all the bedding in cross stitch. Both options are given in the chart (very clearly too). I plan on doing it all in cross stitch, I bought some yummy hand-dyed in 28ct & the applique works best on 10ct.
