...And We're Bachk!

Have you ever seen the SNL sketch that Jimmy Fallon did as the radio host. HE would say, "And we're bacccchhhhkkk!" It was funny.

Anyway, What have I been up to?

I have been so busy, that I have had no time to blog. Thank goodness it's Friday and the start of a 3-day weekend. I give honors to Martin Luther King and the wonderful person he truly was and what he did for humanity. Thank you Dr. King, Monday is YOUR day! :)

Well, Christmas with my lovely husband, sister and brother was awesome. We eat lots of really delicious food


and enjoyed our time by the lovely tree being jolly. :)




One of the gifts my lovely Seanie gave me was a retro stand mixer ( I love it and can't wait to put it to use!). Isn't it pretty!


I have done quite a few crochet projects since I last was in Blogoland. Here's just a couple of things I have made.

( My first scarf ever, my 1st crochet project ever!)


(a scarf I made for my cousin's birthday)


(a scarf I made my mother-in-law.)

So far I know how to chain, yarn over, sc, dc, hdc, make a treble stitch?, make a rose, make different kinds of flowers, make leaves for the flowers, and make scarves. Haha!

I want to learn how to make little baby booties, hats, lace doilies, and neclaces.

I just did do a little baking-these chocolate soufle cupcakes. I have done them before but the new docarating this time turned out pretty nice so I took some pictures.


(Decorated with chocolate ganache/glaze, fresh Bing cherries, orange swirl zests, coarse sugar, and fine edible glitter)

So that's all for now. I hope to see you soon with something new and exciting to share.

THE END!
