The other day I came home from work and Emily had made peanut butter blossom cookies. Well, she had also made a miniature one. You can see the normal sized one on the left, and the mini is on the right. She put a chocolate chip on the top instead of a chocolate kiss. And there's a quarter on the plate to show how small the mini is.
This is what it looks like out my back door today. It looks so pretty, but it's so cold! We woke up this morning to a temp of -4 and a wind chill of -22. Thank goodness it's warmed up a bit...now we're up to 2F and the wind chill is only -15F.
I've found time to do a little bit of sewing, and I now have 19 charming stars blocks done. My original plan was to make this quilt king-sized so I could use up all the Kansas Troubles charms and fat quarters I had. Well, I think this quilt is going to end up a bit smaller. I'm getting bored with these fabrics and blocks, so I'll make up the rest that I have star parts cut for, and then see how many I have. I may not use up all the fabric, but at least I won't end up with a UFO sitting around because I didn't want to work on it anymore.
