This week I got a lovely package in the mail.
All the way from the UK :)
Let me introduce Ali from Bee Creations
Ali makes delightful things with her crochet hook and her sewing machine.
Her peg bags are a delight, if you have not visited Ali,
please click and give her a warm hello :)
Not only did I receive this wonderful book, but Ali also crocheted this adorable bookmark.
Did she know that daisies are my favorite flower?
I can't wait until all of my Christmas projects are finished
and I have time to curl up with this book.
In honor of receiving this gift, I decided to try a British recipe.
This is called Toads in a Hole.
When I told Steve what we were having for dinner,
he wrinkled up his nose at the name of this recipe,
but when served . . .he went back for seconds :)
It is a sausage and Yorkshire pudding dish
very good :)
There are many recipes for this on the internet.
I have certainly been enjoying my sewing machine.
I've done more sewing in the past year than I have done in the previous ten :)
Our weather is suppose to take a dive down the thermometer this weekend . . .
so I feel great about us getting our Christmas lights up on the house last weekend.
We don't have them turned on, but they are ready.
No climbing ladders in the snow :)
We have plans to go to a community production of
"Fiddler On The Roof"
Dinner and a play . . . I'm looking so forward to it.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful week.
Keep Warm & Keep Smiling,
your blogging sister, Connie :)
