Today we did have to make up a batch of cookies for a belated Christmas present to go with one of the ornaments I made. I tried substituting the Crisco with real butter and using whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour. It came out pretty darn good. I think I have holiday guilt from indulging in all the candy and cookies so I was trying to make the cookies a smidgen better. Seth was a serious fan.
(Dan took these pictures for me. The second one has an odd angle to it but I love the grin on his face.)
I have also made some progress on the Chocolate quilt. I am quite pleased with the results so far.
Let's see, I sewed a blanket stitch around the edge of the circles. I had decided on using the same thread color to hopefully show consistency.
Next I quartered them. It's very nice that my ruler is 8.5" wide.
I put a few blocks up on the design wall to get a feel for how it'll look. I like it. Do you?
