Time to convert the oven to storage....







Kitchens...totally not my forte...yesterday was the great cookie disaster and now today....




I always make Swedish coffee bread on Christmas eve...but I have to work on Wednesday until about noon and then church is at 4Pm and then onto Kris an Tyler's house. No time for baking that day. I figured I would be too tired to start the process after work on Mon or Tues, so I had better do it today. I don't know what I did or didn't do but the bread went from the oven into the garbage-did not pass go or collect $200. It was nasty. I guess I will have to try again tomorrow after work after all.


On a brighter note...Becky brought her Sassy 16 quilt yesterday. It is really beautiful. I knew I had to go home and find the pattern and make it too. I had the In the Pink 2 line sitting on my sewing table, so I got busy cutting. I finished the quilt top this afternoon. I will have to find something to use as a backing.



The pictures are the cookie exchange and the Most High Exalted Thimble showing the first project we will do in January.

LOL! Time to turn that oven into fat quarter storage. I will send the Baking Goddess your way for tomorrow night. I am so glad you got busy sewing yesterday. I can't wait to see your sassy 16. Is this 2009 quilt #1???

Love that my projects are inspiring you! Please post a picture of your Sassy Sixteen. The only thing I hate is that you work at double my pace. I'm beginning to think that homemade baking is overrated :)
