and a few other things. First things first. Paula's name was chosen as the winner, her entry was through email.
I can reply to your entry Paula and will do so soon. Thanks to everyone that entered.
Do you remember the Death By Chocolate Zucchini bread? Just wanted to tell you that yes indeedy it freezes well. Came across it while searching for something else and it was wonderful. Had my doubts about freezing because of the sort of dry and crumbly texture but it thawed moist and luscious.
I received two items in my mail today and both were a surprise and a delight. Just so I don't run out of my stress relievers, Marti filled my jar with dark brown treats. Packed in orange and black with a matching card! Don't know what I did to deserve this! Thank you so much Marti. I think the dark brown foil wrappers will be less conspicuous than the bright red I leave everywhere.
And another gift from Lori! Even though the poor girl had her order switched with another, she's gracious enough to send me this. My first beaded fob. Love it! The sweet owl bead in pink is a reminder of my accomplished stitcher SIL, lover of owls, a pink warrior gone too soon. Thank you Lori.
Two wonderful surprises today!
I had a few minutes to peruse The Attic's newsletter and my eyes popped when I spotted this. This is the Ann Marsh Sewing Roll from The Examplarery. Kit form and completely filled with stitches. Absolutely stunning, not something I believe I could stitch. The kit is pricey because of the materials involved, and for some reason, silk and I do not play well together. But I just couldn't stop thinking about this remarkable project. Odd isn't it, when I can't even get a chubby Santa finished?
I'm still trying to get the last few (and I mean few) boxes completed, journals, and whatever else is left.
Working on Santa this evening after removing much stitching because of an error. That's OK, nothing new, and I didn't lose my cool.
Have a great weekend folks.
Thanks for visiting.
