Crafts, crafts and mor e crafts......

How the heck do I get myself into these things. It's not enough that I have incomplete
projects but then I go and start more.....I guess I'm just not happy unless I have a dozen or so going at a time. Last year I bought this really cute kit that I wanted for Christmas. Got it @keepsakequilting in Center Harbor. I thought it was so darn cute. However when I got home I realized it was way too small so I had my trusty "partner" enlarge it up for me. not only was it too small but it was NOT a kit! That's was only the pattern and it had NO now off I go to get wool. So after all the rigmarole I just set it down and there it stayed. But it's now another year and and going to work on it.

Home made Granola

After it's cooked and cooled I store it in a large glass jar so we can grab some to add to our yogurt or cereal.

I keep mine pretty simple but if I'm giving it as a gift...which I have done for Christmas. I put it in a mason jar and add a fabric top with ribbon around it and I tag with the ingredients., then I will add some chocolate or white chips...M&M's, dried fruit or whatever you think your family or friends would enjoy. Now I don't cook these, I add them after it's cooked and dried. It makes great gift. Another idea I had one year was to place about a cup full in a cellophane bag and then also add an envelope of hot chocolate mix to the bag along with m…

Granola and Circle skirt...........................

Now that's quite the title. It's been a bit since I last posted but I can assure you that I've done a lot more that make granola and sew a circle skirt. As far as cooking goes I've made some "sticky buns" from a recipe on Pinterest made with Pillsbury's Grands
MMMMMM! They were so good. Then Hubby decided
that they would be even better if I added
apples to the recipe. So......................
I checked out more recipes and
found some that looked great.
That will be tomorrow's breakfast. There's a method to my madness however.
I figure that if I he has those for breakfast he won't be
too disappointed when I go off tomorrow morning a check out
the craft fairs in the area. might work.
Ok so I also made his favorite

We go through so much of it...I make a huge batch once a month.
But it's yummy....if anyone want the recipe I'd be happy to type it up and have it here.
Just send me a note.
Well, we survived Hurrica…
