I tried to bring some homemade goodies to T's home soccer games to be sold in the concession stand. The Killer Brownies are really good sellers! One evening, I went in the kitchen and turned on the oven to pre-heat, and had NO HEAT!!! I almost panicked, then took a deep breath and thought about what I had on hand that wouldn't require the oven. I had Oreos, Vanilla Bark, Red colored Candy Melts, and Peanut Butter. I ended up dipping the Oreos in the vanilla bark and red candy melts. I also made a large pan of Tiger Butter (T's favorite). I didn't get a picture of the Tiger Butter, sorry. Here is how the Oreos turned out.
I began a new project recently. I'm making a banner to hang in Church. We are The Altar Society of St. Therese and we do not have a banner currently. I volunteered, and the officers have given me complete artistic license in the creation of this banner. I think it may end up looking more like one of my art quilts. I have a lovely picture of St. Therese that I can iron on the banner. I hope to get some work done on it this Saturday. These are the flowers I made to go on the banner. They are made of organza that I cut out into rough flower shapes and singed the edges with a candle flame (very carefully, I might add). I just love them.
I'll post updates on the banner project as I go. I hope to have it completed by the end of March.
Now, to show you a completed project. Yes, I actually finished the second rag rug!! One evening last week I ripped up a sheet and ended up with a huge ball of dark blue, almost denim looking strips to work with. I finished the rug while watching the Super Bowl.
It is my largest one yet, 32 inches in diameter. Naturally, when I set it on the floor, I had 2 girls very eager to try it out. Here you are:
Thanks for stopping by, sorry I was away for so long, here's one last pic you might like from my mini cat calender. Bye for now, God Bless, Love
