as promised

Okay - projects as promised!

First up is the bag I made for my mom for Christmas. Isn't this cordouroy print fabulous?

And here's the apron I made for Jeff's mom for Chritmas - inspired by one Megan made a while ago.

Washington's Birthday

Do you do anything to celebrate President's Day (which in fact is technically titled "Washington's Birthday")? Neither did I until this year. First, I studied the Constitution (and PS - Wikipedia is an AWESOME resource - great explanations for those tricky to understand articles and clauses). I still have a few Amendments to go through, but I'm glad I took the opportunity to read up.

Also, I decided to follow Martha's idea and make one of Washington's and Lincoln's favorites - hoecakes (farmers used to actually make them on their hoes!). Let me tell you - DELISH! Highly recommended with butter and honey. Next year I think I'll incorporate a cherry dessert...

And check out this other cute idea from that clever Martha.

I have projects

Yes I do.

I have projects

that I want to share with you!

to be continued...

addendum - philly

At Jeff's request, I am adding this photo of the future location of the Philadelphia Temple towards North Philly. The picture isn't that great (a nice camera can only do so much with a moving night shot), but you get the idea. It will be built in place of this parking lot in the city, much like the Manhattan Temple is in the middle of the city. Pretty neat, eh? Jeff is very excited!
