Square in a Square Blanket

I have another finished project.  This was the project that I worked on while at Knitting Group.  Easy to knit with lots of talking going on.

 

Here's an up close picture

 

I used the Reversible Square-in-a-Square pattern by Annette McRell as a guideline and Encore yarn, color 9626.  I love the texture with this pattern.

Embroidery Hearts

I had to take the Hearts off Lenni for an emergency quilting job. 

Clearly, not enough quilting here.  I am adding diagonal lines.

 

Clearly, I need to work out a better thread path so there are not so many stops and starts and my spacing is a little off.  So, what to do but bury those threads and add more lines.

 

My spacing is far from perfect, but the only way to get better is to keep working at it.

Babka

We had a baking day and our subject was Babka.  There were several different kinds and we decided to make three of them.  These are some of the filling ingredients.

Our first batch had a walnut filling.  We rolled the filling in the dough, cut it down the middle and did a twist kind of thing.  

Oh my gosh, it baked up beautifully.  

And sliced open, just like a magazine

It was delicous.  The second kind we made had a cream cheese and apricot filling.  It was not so pretty, actually kind of messy,

but still just as tasty as can be.  The third batch was chocolate.  

We adjusted our strategy and chopped the chocolate instead of melting it so it behaved more like the walnut filling than the apricot filling.

 

Cook with your friends.  It is so much fun, we try things we would never try on our own, and we always take home something delicious.

Injustice For All

From the Goodreads website:  "It was like a scene from a movie: the beautiful blond screaming on a Washington beach, a dead man lying at her feet; the dashing Homicide detective arriving to offer kindness and solace to the distressed lady. What it wasn't was a restful vacation for J.P. Beaumont. And now a murderous mix of politics and passion is turning Beau's holiday into a nightmare – and leading the dedicated Seattle cop into the path of a killer whose bloodlust is rapidly becoming an obsession."

Another enjoyable, quick, easy read.  These are perfect vacation/airport books.  Enough of a plot to keep me interested but I was able to put it down and pick right back up with all the interruptions that come with flying.

Asparagus

I think spring is really here.

My first asparagus is peeking above ground.  Don't worry little one, I will be eating you soon.
