End of summer vacation always evokes mixed feelings in me. On the one hand I am relieved that life is going to get back to routine after 2 months of absolutely no system or discipline, nothing but fun and relaxation. On the other hand I will terribly miss my little elf V - she literally being my tail and following me around, having to tell her 'V can you please be quiet for atleast 5 minutes'!! Sighhhh anyway, school has begun and life is back to machine like routine.
V baked one more absolutely yummy cake from scratch and all on her own - a spiced oatmeal raisin quick bread
The recipe is from my Williams Sonoma Baking book. We halved the recipe and replaced egg with flaxseed powder
Each year I attempt to bake a mango cake, but never succeeded. I found a recipe and finally succeeded this year
The recipe is from TicklingPalates.com.
And guess what, after about 2 months of no stitching, I have picked up seashells again. Here's where I am now.
I have completed exactly 50% of the chart. The stitching in the second half is not as dense as in the first half, so hope to finish the project soon
This is it from me today friends. You are going to hear more frequently from me from now. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
