Where I`m at for today

 I had this all ready for weeks but the lady that was to organize and get us going never did.I had posted about it here very disappointed how could she? How hard is it to e-mail a address so that I can mail this ,to late now, it will never get there in time . another lesson learned.

 I love this salad,quick and easy and even better the next day.

 This will be another cookie that my boys will like

 Used only plain wheat flouer today, just a good roll for luchmeat and cheese.

 Changed this up to half wheat and half whole wheat  it is also very easy to make and will be one of my weekly breads to bake.

Finished knitting this one today




I love this blue it is so vibrant and the yarn was a delight to knit with. As this was my third sleeve shawl to knit I decided to look for a new pattern , it is time to change it up when you know the pattern by heart.Now i have to see if my sister in law still wants it.

New eyecandy

 Finally  I can show what I have been up to. My friends son is getting married tomorrow on the beach in Hawaii. The bride wanted to have their little dogie be the Ring bearer and flower girl but because of Quarantine they decided not to bring her all the way from Australia. So the next best thing I thought would be to just put her on the Ring pillow. This is the back with a loop to hold it and I placed butterflies for the Grooms deceased grand parents.

 I did this pillow to surprise the Bride and stayed in her colors of her dress and flowers.M is for Makita.

 G is for Greg. He has the key to her heart.

 And this is Princess Annie.

 The Wedding Garter

This is the Wedding Garter for the Bride with something Blue . I had so much fun working on all this and I wish I could have been there but until money grows on my trees I have to work to earn it.

German pancakes

This is a stack of 14 german pancakes. They are almost like crepes and very thin.

I ate the first four pancakes because it always takes time to adjust the batter and temperature so the rest is ready for my son when he comes home tonight or for tomorrow morning for breakfast.
