I can't wait to start
Anyway, I have hardly touched anything crafty this week, (I did attempt a striped crochet blanket, but after about 20 rows into it, I decided it looked like the cuff of a men's athletic sock, you know the white ones with the colored stripes at the top? Uh-gly. So I ripped it out), but did manage to finish the pillow that goes with my daughter's quilt in the last post.
here, after starting her quilt. I would like to have made the whole quilt like this, but just made one block and turned it into a pillow.
I'm very, very far behind on my Quiltmania Advent blocks. Seriously, I'm thinking of making only one per month from now on, thereby finishing up by next Christmas. They are a lot of fun, but I'm finding them quite time consuming. I guess if I wasn't wasting my time crocheting blankets that look like men's socks, I would be much farther along. Oh well.
Here are the next four blocks.
these while we were decorating the tree on Sunday, in the late afternoon just before dinner. Cinnamon rolls for dinner? Okay.
The recipe says to bake them in a cast iron skillet, but I'm sure any kind of pan will do. The icing goes on after they have cooled slightly. Oh, and we added brown sugar in place of some of the white sugar. Made it a bit more caramelized as you can see by the bottom of the pan.
