A Finish and Dinner

Good Evening!

Do not worry-two weeks have not gone past without your knowing it! I'm here earlier than usual!

Anyway, I just finished this little freebie. It's sure cute and tiny. I'm envisioning a pillow (I'm probably repeating myself from the last post) and have the perfect fabric for the back. All I have to do is wait for that finishing mood that afflicts me from time to time. Here it is:
It's stitched with DMC thread on 28ct whatchamacallit linen. It stitched up quickly. The next Halloween design I"m doing is called Magick Spells by The Stitcherhood! Sorry no picture.

We're finally having some cooler temperatures. I decided to bake some Snickerdoodles earlier. I've baked them before, making them huge that time. This time, however, they're smaller. Ignore the mess! I make a mess when I bake!

These are just a few of the cookies; the rest are eaten up. out of range. Dinner was beef stir-fry with sugar snap peas on white rice:
Yummy! Please ignore the counter of this 30+ year old house lol! This recipe came from the March '07 issue of Cooking Light. It has some bite to it as 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes are added. It's scrumptious and my rice-hating daughter likes it. You gotta do what you gotta do!

Back to the weather! AAAahhhhhh-me breathing a sigh of relief! We actually had to close a few windows last night. It got cool and comfortable. Right now it's 80 degrees at 6:28 p.m. Arizona time and I'm loving it!

Well, it's just a short post today. I am now going to grab a few more cookies, inhale them and get to stitching on the new start. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! And a big Welcome to the new followers!
