Cupcake Hat Factory

I've been making a cupcake hat almost daily in order to fulfill orders. It takes me around 3 hours to finish one if I'm not interrupted. I need to put the cherries on some.

Happy Birthday Tea

A few of my friends, my sister and my daughter gathered for my birthday in December. My sister made the cake from scratch.

I recently started sewing with a friend of mine who retired from teaching. We have made several small projects. I'm constantly sending her pictures of things from Pinterest that I want to make. But this last project I tackled myself. I watched every video available until everything about it made sense to me. Well here you have it - my first necessary clutch wallet.

My Quilting Adventure

My friend, Carolyn, agreed to show me how to quilt. There's so many cute things to do. She has offered up some of her left over fabric and yesterday I made this pretty little pot holder.

Creative Juices

I still have a full month of vacation from work and I'm getting a little bored. I have some upcycle projects in the works to help me get over that: clothespins and candle holders that will become cake plates as soon as I find the right plates.

A Beautiful Shawl

I'm having a horrible flare up today but I still had enough strength to finish the picot edge in this shawl. It's my latest masterpiece.

Pozole Verde for Father's Day

Chicken pozole verde is not a common dish in my home; usually I make red and with pork. But since I decided at the last minute to make it for Father's Day I figured chicken would cook faster. 
Pozole verde is basically chicken soup with puréed green ingredients to color and slightly flavor the broth. In this case I puréed spinach and cilantro with garlic. I forgot the tomatillo! Uyy! But it was fine.
