In my last post I described the kewl new printer I bought, I don't think I mentioned I got it at Costco. Well, the day after I bought it I got my new Costco sales book and guess what goes on sale January 31 with an additional $75 off!??? You guessed it - the very printer I bought! I didn't get around to installing it - thank goodness for procrastination - so guess what I'll be doing in a few days...
I didn't get a chance to really get into any sewing yesterday but I did make a couple more of those four inch blocks - remember them? Here's the completed group. I like the way this one turned out (sorry about the fuzziness):
I wanted to make the top outer border narrower than the other three, and the left inner border a bit wider.
And this one was made using a leftover piece from the one above:
hmmm... I should have put the light piece at the wide end of the triangle, but it'll fly.
Two four inch blocks to add to my group, that makes a total of 37! You can see all my four inch blocks on my flickr page, the link is at the right.
And now for the 3-2-1 part of the post - I saw this recipe for a 3-2-1 cake on someone's blog, I'm sorry I can't give credit but I don't remember who it was. I googled it and found the recipe, and believe me it's super easy to make!
If you want just a little bit of sweetness and don't want to buy (or bake) a whole cake, this can do the trick. You mix together two boxes of cake mix (one of which has to be angel food) and place it in a baggie - I chose lemon for my second flavor. Be sure to mix them really well. When you want a quick fix, measure out 3 tablespoons of cake mix, stir in 2 tablespoons of water, microwave it for 1 minute. They suggest putting it in a mug, but I used a one-cup sized glass bowl that worked perfectly.
The cake comes out very spongy and it's a quick, tasty treat! Now I'm stuck with a big ole bagful of cake mix, LOL.
That's it for now, have a great Wednesday... sew forth and sew on til later!
