Sooo much to share

I have been very busy meeting my target of making beaded jewellery for my cousin. Let me show you everything!!

 Each set is so dear to me

I love Reese's peanut butter cup, the texture, everything about it. About a few days back, to my horror, I realized that V and her friend had finished even my share of it!! AArrrgggh, how annoying.So, I decided to try and make something similar.

Of course, nothing can beat the original, but I'd say (if I may say so myself) this really did come very close. Recipe from

Also tried my hand at making some cookies - Nutella cookies

I used some of the left over chocolate from the peanut butter cup to top a few of the cookies. Recipe is from here

Last night V and I were all set to bake coconut-almond cookies. The dough was (is) ready and had even arranged them on the cookie tray ready to be baked. Switched on the oven to pre-heat. after a minute or so, it just went off!!! Eh, what, how could you do this to me!!! I was almost in tears. But what could I do, except pack the dough in a ziploc and pop it in the freezer. I really hope the technicians come during the week and get it back in shape for the weekend baking. Oh I so miss my oven.

And guess what, amidst all this I did manage to finish June

I have now crossed half a year. All set to start July now. I am yet to order Sep/Oct  and Nov. I have to also start thinking of actually finishing these, to atleast put them up the coming year. My thoughts are navigating between a calendar and a memory board.

Wow, that was quite a long post by my standards. Thanks for dropping by.

Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
