Baking and this and that and a Giveaway!


Such a cool day here that I baked up some Cranberry Oatmeal White Chipit cookies.

Since I am still in time for The Needle and Thread Network WIP posting, I’m linking up there. As you will see, I am taking a few WIPs on my little summer trip! :). For their 100th post, they are having a giveaway for a Christmas panel, curtesy of Sew Sisters in Toronto. Now if I win, I will personally pick it up! :)…I’m going there to visit my sister!  I’m curious to see what my fellow needleworkers are up to and plus I get to put my feet up and peruse!

As for sewing….on the back burner seeing as my significant other, The Frenchman, is on vacation…still plotting and planning though. We are going off to southern Ontario tomorrow so will bring my handwork, some embroidery:


Taking my time on this one!

I’ll also bring this bag of hexagons:


And for added measure, because I really would like to get these done:



For those of you who don’t know me all that well, I am training for a marathon and yesterday I ran 25kms. I’ll be including my unprofessional athletic exploits so that I can encourage others to get active because if we need healthy bodies to sew even more!

Here is my run:

I’m going to try to post on my travels….hope to visit some fibre places!

  1. Oh, yum. Those cookies look so yummy. Is there one missing? There, in the bottom row!? Hope you enjoy them. And I’d love to hear of your fibre travels.

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog. My internet connection at the RV park is rather flaky. Much better here in Chicago at my daughter’s home. I have the same Twittering’s Red work book. Enjoy your holiday.
