My Week...

...and no sewing.  :(

Well! What's been happening?!

Pumpkin carving.

Pumpkin seed roasting.  I'd share the link but these are going to hit the garbage.  :(

The Christmas card mock ups.



Chocolate chip cookie making...

...and tasting.  :)   I just drank coffee as I was sampling as they came out of the oven.

In this school district the kids go to *camp* in the 7th grade~this year for DD.  My son went in 5th grade when we lived in Michigan.  The *camp* group is having a bake sale fundraiser on November 1 and 2 in conjunction with the 8th grade play and the 7th grade parents were asked to donate 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies.  Since it has been like forever since I baked a batch~I thought I better have a dry run to *see* what tweaking to the recipe needs to be done!  DD was very surprised that I owned a cookie jar~what does that tell you?!  and it 'HAS COWS! MOM! C'MON!'  Her words not mine...DH has worked in the dairy business for the last 24 or so years...we have lots of stuff with cows on it. :)

Of course you have to test the product out! Can't send bad cookies to the bake sale, right? The pumpkin seeds didn't turn out though?

Either card is cute, Pat. You probably need a mix of secular and religious anyway?
