Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

What a day! It was intended to be a day when I got a lot of crafting done -- and I did accomplish some.
But did you ever have a crafting session where things just didn't go according to plan? I've had a few, and today was one of them.
Some months ago I had found a tutorial for an item I wanted to make for my grandkids. I planned on making seven of these and thought I could get them all cut out today. It was not to be. The "tutorial" I had found did not include an actual pattern. I was supposed to draw a template for this thing. Let's just say that after a Google search I did eventually find a template I could adapt.
Well, I ended up getting perhaps half of the necessary pieces cut out, but at least now I have a template. Maybe tomorrow I can get more done.
Now, back to cross stitching. Mr. T is baking Christmas tree spritz cookies, the snow is falling, and all is well.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
