Spring in the air!

March 21, 2014



It's such a beautiful day today, I can feel spring in the air!!
 It's so nice to see the crocuses, daffodils and buds on the forsythias.
I love the changing seasons!

I wanted to share a few photos of my grand-son Lars,
he's such a big boy now!!

Sitting up all by himself!


Can sit like a big boy while shopping!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Almost Finished!

March 5, 2014  


I'm moving along on my Santa rug!!
Once finished, I will age it with walnut dye.
Colors do appear much brighter than they are.


This mat just needs binding.
Sure wish I had an old bench this size to cover.


If you're a lover of scones try this quick and easy recipe!
You can use any dried fruit!
I hate to admit that I just ate two with a hot cup of tea. Yum!

Ingredients

2 cups Original Bisquick
1/3 cup finely chopped dried apricots
 3 tablespoons sugar
 1/3 cup whipping (heavy) cream
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
 2 tablespoons sugar

Heat oven 425. Grease cookie sheet. Mix Bisquick, apricots,
3 tablespoons sugar, the whipping cream and egg until soft dough forms.
Turn dough onto surface dusted with Bisquick; roll in Bisquick to coat.
Shape into ball; knead 10 times.

Pat dough into 8-inch circle on cookie sheet (if dough is sticky, dip 
fingers into Bisquick). Brush dough with milk; sprinkle with 
2 tablespoons sugar. Cut into 8 wedges but do not separate.

Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown; carefully separate wedges.
Serve warm. 
                                         
Have a Happy Day!
