Sliding in under the deadline

I signed up for an apron swap a little bit ago and got a fellow blogger who just happened to be a vegetarian. Well I was all gung ho on sewing at this point so I made a few aprons before and started on a Christmas Tree Skirt for my tree with Kitten Mom and Sweetie pants Drew

you see here I was already getting ahead of myself, I had about 10 projects at home and started a big one. But I was learning from Kitten Mom who has already made a gorgeous tree skirt for her house and is working on her second for a gift. (Girl just had a baby and is already making gifts for others, insane!!). So my ADD self got into the tree skirt big time until it was time for Thanksgiving.
Then I was all about setting a pretty table with my china and making some freaking good food!

So tonight I realized that I have to send the apron tomorrow... as in not today, tomorrow! CRAP....
But Schmoop and his twin were busy with the game so I got all domesticated and made some Snickerdoodles and the much awaited apron. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, I love the peas since she's a veggie too. I'm improving bit by bit with this sewing stuff and I like it!!!

Finally the Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles-Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1 Cup Butter
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs

Separately stir together

Once blended mix in with the wet ingredients. Form walnut size balls and roll into a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes. Mmmmmm :)

Ok, I added the snicker doodle recipe to my recipe list. Could be a potential cookie swap recipe. I'll do the trial run this weekend ;-)
