I Heart Food

In honor of the day of love I baked. It’s not really my favorite thing to do but once in a while, when the mood strikes, I dig through the pantry and attempt to make something yummy. Today yumminess came in the form of heart shaped peanut butter cookies with strawberry jam filling. They were a delightful combination of soft buttery crumbs and gooey tang.

The Recipe

Lost on the Moors

I watched Jane Eyre the other night while stitching Words onto linen. Oh how I love the beautiful imagery, the haunting music and gothic mystery of it. It also helped to soften the blow of discovering that one of my hand sewn words was not spelled correctly. Sigh. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these little tidbits of loveliness as much as I do. I just wish I could find a good picture of Jane’s gorgeous wedding gown!

Next to the Box

My scrap box is getting rather full. When that happens projects are eminent. Small projects that I must force myself to imagine as opposed to using a pattern. It’s a creative stretch, an out of box experience. But we all need one of those once in a while.
