Cake for breakfast?

Three things to be happy about:
(1) pale green lichen
(2) a glass of orange juice
(3) a new recipe

I woke at the wee hour at 6:30 (5:30?) this morning and used my kindle for a bit, then decided to work on my bee's  anniversary swap blocks.

I don't know if I showed this one or not, but it was only fused down, no stitching had been done on it.

I stitched around the main part, now I have to do the letters.

Those letters!  Now I know what not  to do on the blocks ... those rascals can be tedious to stitch around unless they're super large!

The connected letters (cursive?) are easier because there's not so much start-and-stop action.

The good news?  They'll all get done by April's deadline - or else!

Last week the District distributed new trash and recycle cans ... see the snow still on the ground?

I didn't know we were getting them, they were delivered to the front  of the house - which means, since the entire neighborhood is connected rowhouses,  everybody had to drag their cans around back to the alley.

The new trash can is the same size, but the new recycle can (on the left) is larger than the old one was.

Some households need larger cans but the old one was fine with me, trash is collected once a week and I can usually get all my recyclables into the smaller can.   Whatever.

That's it for today, get out and enjoy the nice weather if you're having some... sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. I probably shouldn't admit this publically, but the hubs had a birthday party Sunday night and I ate cake for breakfast yesterday!! My head is hanging in shame and remorse....but MAN! it was good :)

  2. I want that cake. Am I on your list, if not how about making me on of the cake patterns, you do not have to sew it down, I'll do it.


Thanks so much for your comment, I like getting feedback! I can't promise to respond by email, but I do appreciate your visit.
