Sweet treats..

Well I've finally got the sweet treats done. I made thumbprint cookies, puppy chow, Brickle, peanut butter fudge & buckeyes. Most of this will be leaving the house so as not to "TEMPT" me... I love baking and making things for others...

Back to knitting!

Can not believe it has been such a long time since I have blogged.. Time just seems to slip by..

It's cookie baking time, and I'm making much less than I have in the past.. I sure do not need any sugary goodies hanging out at my house... So today was the day to bake the most delicious cut out cookies I have ever eaten. Thanks to my friend Mary for the recipe..

Now onto the most important stuff.. How can you not love this cute face?

How can you resist this little guy! He makes me smile!!! My adorable grandson!

Slipping by...............

My goodness this month is just slipping by...
I've got 3 things I've been working on and soon to be a 4th.
First I have the Moxie that needs one more sleeve.
Secondly there is the Mondo cardi I had to put down so I could
work on Sophie. She (Sophie) is an Easter gift for the little man..
I have the ears to finish and then I can get back to Moxie & Mondo.
On monday the 15th we are casting on for a KAL.. That is going to be
very exciting as I know the designer and the CKW group will be doing this
Hopefully pictures to follow sooner than later...
