recipe is from Two Peas and a Pod. No eggs was the first weird thing I noticed. I may not have cooked mine quite long enough, but they seem to almost have a truffle like consistency to me. Son said-these gonna stiffen up? Daughter said-oohh I like these! I am undecided about the cookie, but know they require drinking milk to enjoy. I will probably try another recipe.

I wanted to use some more of my Alpaca silk yarn that I bought off of Etsy, so I went looking on Ravelry for a pattern. I found one and managed to get about 40 rows in before I decided it was way too bulky for this yarn and wouldn't be quite as dainty and feminine as I was looking for. I decided to just do enough rows of double crochet and then did 5 DC in each stitch on the ends. That means you have to go back to the foundation (or beginning) row and add the double crochets. It makes the little ruffle. I also put a little tab with buttons on it to give it a little more detail. I think it is pretty sweet. You could use lightweight yarn and more stitches to make a cute spring/summer scarf. Peaches and Cream cottons would be nice.

Well I realized too late that I had left off my borders on this super easy table runner. I picked out the first few inches of ditch quilting and sewed them on today. Now I am ready to finish the quilting. I have been semi-spring cleaning today. Washing doors and baseboards with Murphy's oil soap, cleaning the de-humidifier, washing some windows, laundry (always), mopping (not often enough), and basic clean out. I think I will now sit and quilt awhile. Son and hubby are headed home from UK and my boy has a college schedule for his first semester-WOW! Getting a little too real now. Hope you all have a marvelous Lord's day tomorrow!
