Unfortunately, I didn't make too much this week. To the left there is my latest Smash book--it's packed with art journal pages that include some of my project instructions, lists, and ideas...that's my theme for this one...in the middle is some patterned paper and tags (and nothing done with them yet) with some floss scattered around because on the right are my stitched matryoshka girls and I'm still stitching more because they are just so fun to cross-stitch. And at the upper right is a little box of recipes from my mom's massive recipe collection, and that wonderfully huge skein of pink yarn from darling daughter. I've decided to make a simple, thin, comfy pink little lap blanket. I'm going through this particular little box of mom's recipes because I noticed she had put a lot of older ones in there, and there are many in her handwriting which is of course precious to me now. And who can resist recipe titles such as "Dream Cake."
I'm a little behind on the worktable because I had a busy weekend which included a family Superbowl party--among other things we made homemade chicken nuggets for our crowd, spinach dip in the crockpot which is a huge favorite, and luscious dark chocolate brownies. It was a busy bowl day! But I loved the halftime show with Katie Perry and Missy Elliot. Hopefully I'll get my mojo going again this week and you can call me Mollie Makes next week. Enjoy your desk hopping!
