Are those flowers I see??
This past Sunday I drove the 6 hour drive to Maryland to meet up with my oldest daughter, Jaime and her hubby. They drove 4 hours from their home in Virginia. We called it Operation Daddy Pickup. He went home with them for a little visit. He is so happy to be going there. Our sil Armando and him I am sure are going to have a wonderful time. They plan on going fishing and having lots of fun together.
We met at the Maryland House and outside of it were flowers. I had to take pictures, what a joy to see flowers and green grass. It is still so cold and gray up here in the mountains. I am waiting patiently for some little signs of spring on my land.
This past weekend was lots of fun in addition to the trip to Maryland on Saturday I went to a lovely baby shower for my friend Mary Ann's daughter who is expecting a little girl in May. It was at a restaurant and the food was fantastic. I sampled a lots but my favorite was chicken breast stuffed with feta cheese and spinach. OMG was it good. I don't even like feta cheese or spinach but I do now. YUMMY!! My friend asked me to make her daughter a taggy blanket since she seen others I had made and I did. I just love how it came out. I think it was my best one yet, it was so perfectly even. I know it was because of the scissors and lots of patience. I had bought a really nice gingher sewing scissors a long time ago and they disappeared. The other day my daughter returned them to me because she found them in her bedroom, oh didn't I remember she borrowed them. UGH!! Well I am thankful I got them back, I think I am going to put an alarm on them because they are wonderful. Like cutting through butter with them. So smooth.
I just love this fabric and the cheerful colors.
I recently found a recipe on a blog but I am not sure which one, so if you are reading my blog and this is your recipe, I just want to tell you, you get 10 stars from me because this was out of this world. I just loved them. They are not just yummy they are pretty too. LOL
Yep, those are fresh raspberry tarts, with a lovely cheesecake filling. They are just sooo good. I hope to make some more this weekend.
Here is a little stitching update. I finished one towel awhile back and the past couple days I finished another. My very first Christmas gift for 2010. I think I am going to give them to my friend Marie. Her favorite color is blue. She doesn't go on the computer or do any blogging so I can mention it without her finding out.
Have a great week,
