Sewing & Baking

I decided to make some cookies and I found a recipe on Martha Stewart. The recipe is called Outrageous Chocolate Cookies. I did not have the semi-sweet chocolate on hand and I did not have semi-sweet chocolate chunks. So I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and melted them down and instead of the chocolate chunks, I used dark chocolate M&M’s (leftover from all of the Easter Candy). The recipe said it would make 24 cookies and I used the small scoop from Pampered Chef and made 40 cookies I’m glad I took these pictures the night I made them because by the next morning, yep you guessed it, the little guys devoured them. None left. And I would make some more but I don’t have anymore chocolate chips. Need to find another recipe to make them some more cookies but this time, I’ll need to keep them out of reach.


Onto more exciting news, I completed another project on Wednesday. I had been putting it off, I’m really not quite sure why. But she’s finished and I’ll be posting pictures at a later date.

I also finished another block for the Dear Baby Jane that I’m working on . This block is B13 and is called Four Corner Press. I chose yellow for this ring that the block belongs in and while I was going through the box of fabric found the yellow bandana print and while looking for a larger block I came across the fabric that I used for the center. I think they worked out well together. I have to start working on the appliqué blocks; this will be something new for me as I have never done appliqué. The saying you learn something new everyday will hold true for this.

Great blocks! (I'm also part of the DBJ group. I love your Four Corner Press! Will you post your photos on the Flickr group, too? This is the second time I've heard about that cookie recipe. Maybe I'll have to make them!
