I finished another set of rag quilted place mats this week, but I don’t like them as well as the set I made with vintage denim. Some ideas just don’t work out as well as others!
I’ve been doing computer stuff all day today. We did do to Mass tonight because we want to cut wood for this winter tomorrow. It was too hot to do it today.
I’m really getting into Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. It isn’t like any other book I’ve ever read. I don’t want to put it down.
On Thursday, I went to the city and helped my granddaughter make 200 cupcakes for a wedding. We mixed each batch from scratch, and the icing, too. We would have had enough had it not been for the ones that over flowed, etc., including the ones that got poked by little fingers and eaten by little boys. Cooking together was a fun way to spend the day. I enjoy visiting with people more when I’m busy doing something than when I just sitting around. Half were to be white and half were to be chocolate. We used really easy recipes, but they tasted good. We needed a cookie/ice cream scoop that would measure out exactly the amount of batter we needed to go in each cake. We had an ice cream scoop, but when you filled it, it was too much, and it was hard to always scoop out just the right amount. I baked one batch of chocolate ones with the oven turned off! They tasted great because each one had a gooey spot where it wasn’t cooked. I did way too much taste-testing!
It’s bedtime, but I’m going to read some more.
