Some Baking....

I made this "Apple of Your Eye" cheesecake twice in the past few weeks.  One, I took to Thanksgiving at my son's house and the other for the German School staff this past weekend. 

Turned out great both times with no leftovers.

A Christmas Ornament Finish!

Awhile back we stitched some plaid spiders on the EGA Stitch-a-long group.  I stitched mine but haven't ornamentified them yet, so I haven't posted them here.

IHSW - the Results

I did get some stitching, although it is never enough for me.....

I worked on the top part of the Santa's Train Stocking, and I started and finished the plaid light bulb ornament.

Internation Hermit and Stitch Weekend Returns!


It has been quite some time since I participated.  I hadn't seen any reminders and it just slipped my mind, but the 'challenge' has been resurrected and I am happy to participate this weekend.  I do have German School on Saturday, and a concert to attend on Sunday, but the rest of the time, I plan to stitch.....
