Feeling almost OK

I tried a workout today, made it for a while on the treadmill before I surrendered.

Still a bit under the weather!

But I tried making gluten free biscuits....using the recipe for 7up Bisquick biscuits. I substituted GF baking mix, club soda for the 7up and Greek yogurt for the sour cream!

4 ingredient (melted butter is the fourth) easy, handle gently recipe!

It was pretty successful!

I didn't cut round biscuits, and some enede up with flour side up in the pan of melted butter...but the one I tried, still not with butter and honey was a treat!



I don't really need to add more carbohydrates to my diet, but it was fun to try this!



Then our local yarn shop was having a sale, so I treated myself some more.....10 skeins of NORO for a sweater... The Queen Street Sweater in the latest Knitscene magazine.

Love the kangaroo pockets!

My yarn is green, silk cotton and viscose! Delightful!


I also bought some pink washable wool because 4 year old Nina wants me to knit a hoodie for her, with a pocket, pink with red trim...of course!

Her twin sister already has a navy blue handknit-by-grandma hoodie....

Speaking of the twins....

They had breakfast with Santa today!

A quilt finished, and plans for retro aprons...

I finished a quilt which had been pieced for some time. It started with a charm pack from Missouri Star's daily deal. Lots of Bethlehem buildings and words from the Christmas story were in the pack, along with blenders and little dots. So I added fabric pieces with manger scenes,the Holy family and wise men, shepherds. Then because it is for little grandsons, I found snowmen and Santas,

Machine quilted by me and a bright red border added.


I didn't get to take it for show and tell at QUILT guild as after work, I was really worn out from my head cold, just came home and crawled in bed!

While "resting" after work the next day, I put together some Christmas ornaments

Clear glass ornaments with Crystal glitter, holly and vellum with music.

Staying, home being good and not spending $$$$.....ha!

Pinterest had this really cute apron by Jane Sassaman's crew....using Jane Sassaman fabric!


Too cute! In her blog post you could see the vintage McCall's pattern 1577. 1950

I checked Etsy and eBay......found one and ordered it! My iPad brings the shopping world to my couch! Ouch!

I am addicted!

It is on it's way, more fun ahead!

But first need to decorate our tree and get those presents, including the quilt, in the mail!
