The week that was

What with the outing to Toowoomba and a lot of traipsing around last week to find suitable threads, fabric and tools to start on Betsy's Closet, it doesn't seem as if I achieved very much this week.

I am happy to announce, however, that block one of Betsy's Closet is complete.

I managed to do some stitching on block 5 of Edwardian House but I suddenly found myself without DMC thread # 3709 which will mean another trip to that dreaded Spotlight store.  I really wish my LQS stocked DMC.

 {not enough done to warrant a photo}

I have completed one line of the wording on the Bric-a-Brac stitchery and have really enjoyed doing something a little different such as lettering but still don't think it is exciting enough to be photographing just yet.

Remember my Cherry Blondie post? Well I was saying that next time I try the recipe, I would use dark chocolate instead of white chocolate.  The opportunity came around sooner than I expected and I did exactly that, creating a "Cherry Brownie", for a going away do at work.  It got rave reviews and I had to pass on the recipe to a few more fans.  Fortunately, I know it off by heart now.

I hope you all had a good week doing whatever you love to do.
