The “Hungry Girl” cookbook I talked about a week or so ago, has another recipe I would like to try making. She has a recipe for blueberry muffins that are made with wheat flour and Splenda. I need to go look and see if I have any blueberries in the freezer. I can’t get the muffins off my mind, so maybe I will make them today. If they are as good as I think they will be, I will share the recipe.
Nick was up at 6:30 am today and I was so glad it was Steve’s day to get up early. Of course, do you think I could go back to sleep…no! So I gave up and got up at 7:30. I kept laying there thinking about everything I needed to do today, plus the sun was shining. Hard to want to sleep when the sunshine is streaming in your windows.
I am working on a new project in my studio. I started making a laptop sleeve yesterday. I decided to make it with this heavy, plaid fabric that would work well for guys or gals. That was great until I started cutting and remembered I need to match the plaid so it would look good. This process took a while, but I finally got it done. I cut the fleece padding and thought I would press the plaid fabric one more time before starting to sew. I forgot to turn my iron down as this fabric has to be pressed on a low setting. Yup, you guessed it…I melted an iron shaped spot right in the middle of the piece of fabric I had painstakingly matched the plaid and cut. Now, wouldn’t it have been nice if I had started ironing on the edge of the fabric…but oh no…I jumped right smack in the middle. I then had to cut a new piece and then I decided I best quit while I was ahead…so I gave up sewing for the day..LOL
I took this picture of Nick yesterday while his imagination was working overtime. He was pretending to be a “Spy Kid”. He also had a small back pack strapped to his back. After this picture was taken, he went out and rode his scooter up and down the sidewalk…he looked so cute. :o)
