… made this (oatmeal cookie coffee cake) for breakfast. i mean come on, who could resist a recipe with both cookie and cake in the title. i omitted the raisins. i found it to be extremely delightful. it was served with blueberry buttermilk pancakes, maple apple sausage, scrambled eggs and fruit.
… discovered a 1/4 inch quilting foot for my sewing machince because of this blog. remember how i mentioned i had a hard time keeping a straight line. well… this could help! really. i think it will. i already ordered it. yeah, that’s right. i don’t mess around.
… sadly i’m having some issues with my globe project i mentioned yesterday. here’s a teeny tiny preview. but it’s debut may be delayed to next week. i hope. it could turn out to be a giant fail … which would be okay because now i know how to avoid the problem in the future. keep your fingers crossed won’t you?
… am slightly obsessed with this song. do you know adele? she is coming out with her sophomore album on february 22nd. i’ve already heard a couple songs and i’m already in love. i adore her voice. i get goosebumps every time i hear her songs.who are you listening to and loving these days?
… hoping to make some of these pillows.
aren’t they beautiful!? ahh! i adore the font. love it. i have some left over dropcloth from a display i did in the gift shoppe that would be perfect. maybe i could make some napkins or a table runner. who knows? i also found this fabric paint. sadly, as some of you already know, the closest craft store (joanns) is about 45 minutes from my house. the closest michael’s/acmoore is about 1.5 hours. i know. it’s terrible. thank goodness for online shopping and free shipping!
… can’t believe i’m almost at 300 followers. it’s unreal! and i know to some of you this may be peanuts, but i’m super excited and thankful and honored. i actually am planning a little giveaway once i hit that 300 mark, so stay tuned for that.
… was touched that my guests thought of me during their tour of local wineries yesterday. true beauty in the little things.
… need a nap. i’ve been a bit cranky inside the past couple days. i guess i’m in a bit of a funk. not feeling overly inspired. i think it’s a combination of my diet (i totally need some french fries and a big piece of cake … that could possibly solve everything), this snow (is it april, yet) and a lack of sleep. ever have one of those days/week. blah.
here’s to a brighter tomorrow!
