Just a quick post about my baking habits lately. The Holiday season really puts me into the baking mood. I made some simple vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. I also made some shortbread cookies diped in chocolate sauce and sprinkles!!! They were delicious!! I made the cookies in a cookie press!!

My 411

Sorry about such a long wait!! I have been busy knitting up a storm!!!! Well to start off for Thanksgiving was fun!!! I made some of these hairclips (sorry no picture) I helped set the table!!

We also got snow!!! (A couple days after thanksgiving)

I managed to knit 2 pairs of mittens, sew some headbands and finish my pj pants!!!

Here is one of the mittens I finished!! It is just a very simple stockinnet stitch mitten. I made one pair for myself and the other one for my big sister.

This baby bib I made for my teacher whose wife was expecting a baby. They really liked it and sent me a thank you card!!!

This crochet flower neclace took me like 10 minuets to make. It was super simple and easy to make!! I really like the way it turned out and will definaltly be making more in the near future. On the other hand it rained here. Hard. Our street and backyard flooded so bad that we couldn't even drive anywhere let alone walk. So I was stuck inside. All day. A full 24 hours. It was horrible. I was about ready to pluck my eyes out just because it was something to do. I had to go to the yarn store to get some yarn for my next project and we had apsolutely no food in the house!!! I mostly watched T.V. yesturday and played on the computer. Our power kept flickering on and off though so someimes my activities were interupted because my computer had to restart. That's is about it. It has been pretty borring around here so nothing spectacular to anounce to you guys...

I am going a little crazy!!

I have to say, I am going a little nuts here. I have been stuck inside my house for more than 24 hours!! Our street it flooded to the point that we can not drive through it!! There is no food here, my mom was planning to go to the grocery store to day but couldn't. I have nothing to do. I need to go to the craft store to get some interfacing for my latest sewing project!!! Our power has been flickering on and off, therefore my computer has been turning on and off!! I am going to make this post quick because I don't want to have to keep retyping all of this!! I will definately give you the 411 when I can leave this house!!

See ya later!!

Chatter about What's New

Sorry for the long delay in posting, I have been REALLY busy with projects!! My s.S. teacher assigned 2 projects that were due today, not to mention a thesis paper and a Spanish project.
Well I joined our school's new Eco-club!!!! It is totally awesome!! Their are about 20 kids in the club and what we do is each week we try do something that recycles reuses..etc. Well this week we collected old crayons, peeled them, separated them by color and then donated them to a company that makes into crayons for the differently-abled. We are also making our own dirt. We got some worms and every week we add some leftover food into the box of worms. We have already gotten a ton!!!
Unfortunately basketball ended last week. We lost our last game, but we earned second in our division!!! Now only if I could find my jersey and turn it in....
I have had no time to knit or crochet so I have nothing to show off today.

See ya next time!!
