Getting Organized!

Alright, it's a beautiful Spring day. The crocus in the garden are blooming and I have the itch to go outside and putter. Autumn has a friend over and the hubby is out working. Perfect opportunity to get some work done! I have sooooo many things I would like to tackle...

My grandmother gave me a half finished latch hook rug project I would like to teach Autumn to do. It's a beautiful rose design, all done in different shades of pink. Perfect for Autumn's room!

I found the perfect size box for my almost finished San-Man project... would like to finish it today...

I would LOVE to put a coat of paint on the Salt Box doll house, but I need to do some prep work first...

I just got a book from the library on miniature embroidery projects for the doll house. Sooooo cute! More to come on that...

One more thing. I would really like to make a few nice Spring dresses for Autumn. I have such pretty fabric and just need the inspiration to start.

Well, the sewing table is clear and I have organized a bunch of fabrics and have gone through my chart stash and decided to get busy. Wish me luck!

Yummy New Dessert Recipe!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm not Irish, but I do love to prepare desserts for our holiday suppers. Tonight dinner is at Mom's house, so I decided to make something new. A couple of days ago I received the new issue of Kraft's magazine, 'Food and Family'. Over the years I've been pretty successful with their recipes, and they are kid friendly too. Autumn pretty much made this dessert herself! Here's the recipe.

Happy St. Baldrick's Day!

Congratulations to my brother-in-law, Anthony on the left, for raising over $4,000.00 for children with Cancer. What an unbelievable turn-out it was for a great cause. The St. Baldrick's foundation is raising money for children with Cancer for years now and seems to bring a lot of men mostly to this charitable event annually. This year the event was held at our local tavern, Fatty McGee's. My husband, Steven on the right, got in with the action and decided he needed a haircut too and shaved his head as well as his older brother Frank, middle. I'm proud to say that these boys did something wonderful that day! My little nephew Matthew did it too! What a cutie!!! For more information on St. Baldrick's visit this website.
