Just Wanting Today...


Do you ever have those days where you want...
To eat lunch in New York...
Drive all day to to shop at 1 store..
Actually grow something that lives..

Well today I want this stove...

I am sure tomorrow it will be a different one...
but for today I want this one....
And someday I might actually find it!
What is your want for just Today?

Where I found that Wonderful Recipe!


I am not usually to good at making bread....
even though I have been to several cooking classes...I have just never gotten the hang of bread making. But this recipe is so easy and I got a few emails wanting the recipe.
I got this recipe from:

You might have to scroll to get to her recipe but its worth it. She gives you step by step directions on how to make it. Read it all before you try it...But you won't be sorry...and it is so good.
 I even put some of the batter in the fridge for later this week.

I tried to make each one different.


So fun moving the blocks around for different looks.


I am so excited to finish.

Tea and a New Mug Rug!


I am having a nice cup of tea and enjoying my new Mug Rug!
I had so much fun making this I want to go find some cute mugs and make some more.


This is the finished piece without the tea so you can see.
I did make mine a little bigger, it is 6 X 10.
I already have another stitchery in mind for the next one!

I was Inspired!


I was over at :


And saw  her Mug Rugs I LOVE them... What a fun idea!
So I decided to make one.


I picked 2 fabrics to get started. The floral will be the main fabric and the white is what I did the stitchery on.


I started by quilting the the background. Then drawing and stitching the picture at the top.
If you want to see the results you'll just have to stop by again...I will will be so happy you did too!
