There's about a half-hour of January left, & I am bound & determined to get one more post in. Because of my grand plan to post every day all month, you know.
Mostly, I have been working on the auction quilt.
It's turning into a lovely project, though the logistics of getting all the necessary pieces threaten to drive me up the wall at least once a day.
So then, I bake cookies.
(These are Unbeatable Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies, & while they are indeed very tasty with a nice chewy texture (not quite as cakey as I personally like), they were excruciatingly frustrating to make, due to the chocolate chips' inability to stay in the greasy batter (final cookies are not greasy, I should point out). Note how the chips have a desperately clinging, smashed-on look about them.)
And stare longingly at all of the clothes that I don't have time to make for my daughter right now.
Tomorrow is February, which is the official start of birthday season planning around here. Yesterday I ordered some new icing tips in preparation. Sometimes I can't even believe myself, but then I remember that I can talk about it on the blog & you'll be out there nodding your head, having just come from ordering your own icing tips or etc, just because, & that makes me feel so much better.
