Frohe Weihnachten Merry Christmas

I`m done for today. Just did the last minute decorating ,putting cookies out and making sure all the gifts are under the tree. This year I only baked Ausstecherle  a German Butter cookie, and Spitzbuben   a cookie dough with ground Hazelnuts stacked together with  raspberry jelly  in the middle . Time to do nothing,no time to do some more knitting to get a few more scarfs  finished this year.

More Knitting

Close up of left and right side.

This is another Scarf I just finished today. I do enjoy knitting again and signed up for a Knitting Online Group. I hope to learn more and my wish is to make my creations more creative and maybe a little outside the box?

Crazy Quilting

Cherry Blossom`s.

The finished Block.
It is getting colder and I have more time for sewing .No garden work for a few month!Candji`s Asian Block was mailed this morning and I hope she will like it as much as I did mine.When I received it all of the lower half was empty and it was like a having a playground to play on all for myself. First did some simple seam treatments,started my fan and found this printed postcard to add. Still had a little room and decided to put some Cherry Blossoms to fill the space. I do love how it all came together.

Baking my first Madeleins

These are my first Madeleines I baked. The first batch burned and I had to eat them all !Just had to adjust temperature ,bake 10 minutes longer and voila .They are so good,I think they taste even better then I remember.They are like mini pound cake`s with a crunchy side like a butter cookie,easy to make ,measure about 2 inches long and 1 inch high.My Mom use to buy them for weekend afternoon coffee breaks,yes you can`t get the German out of me, I need my coffee and cake.I bought the baking sheet at Bed,Bath and Bejond and it was worth it , got another new baking form yesterday for breads,will have to wait till next weekend to get used. My Kids are asking for Christmas cookies so I will be making some this week.


You order and I deliver!
Another scarf finished, it was made for a wonderful young Mom who works at the place I get my cars  fixed. She wanted a plain scarf in greens and yellow,hope it is to her liking.
