Stir, stir, bake....awwwww......

Over the weekend DH made these...
Recipe is found HERE

this appeared in my sewing room...

Do you suppose this means that after 
38 years he still loves me?

- For your listening pleasure, have a look at THIS (have your sound on!)

- THESE ornaments are SO cute!!  Not necessary to put them on the tree either - they'd be perfect all year 'round.  HERE's another cute ornament idea.

- THIS is a beautiful crocheted snowflake and there are links to a lot more HERE.

- Or how about some really cute little snowmen found HERE.  Or maybe a really sweet little Chris Mouse (found HERE).

- I'm a huge fan of the Grinch (the original cartoon version) so of course I like THIS!

- I have often wondered why someone didn't come up with a small circular knitting needle to make socks and it seems that someone has!!  Have a look at THIS (and now I want a set so I can try it....SO much easier than fumbling with DPN's!!). 

- HERE are some free Christmas-themed cross stitch charts.

- THESE are some very sweet pincushions - a great gift for any time of the year!

- If you are searching for an easy, but really pretty, idea for packaging your gifts, how about THIS?

Your quote today is another one from an anonymous source..."When a child gives you a gift, even if it is a rock they just picked up, exude gratitude.  It might be the only thing they have to give, and they have chosen to give it to you"


  1. Awww, how sweet!
    Or he broke something. :)

  2. Those cookies could be baked with a hole in to insert a ribbon for an ornament, edible. Two birds, one cookie...

    oh those bikkies look so yummy,yes he still loves me ,how wonderful 38 years,thankyou for the links my friend xx

  4. Yep, I'd say he still loves you - how sweet! SO many cute crafts that I bookmarked from this post! I love those pin cushions and the Christmas tree cross stitch pattern and, well, I can't remember what all I marked! Lots of great ideas!!

  5. Your husband is quite the romantic. I adore Chris Mouse. So many wonderful ideas for our limited holiday time. What a great quote and message to lift a child’s or anyone’s self esteem. Merry Christmas Bliss...xo

  6. Definitely keep him on!

  7. wish my DH would make me some cookies..... maybe when he gets retired he can take up baking ... He does make an amazing carrot cake for my birthday so I can't complain I guess.

  8. I'm the cookie maker in our house. Lucky you! Great links again. I've saved a few of the links for the future. Thanks.

  9. How sweet!

    Congratulations on 38 years together. :)

  10. How lovely that your husband is still surprising you with treats :)
    I'll be interested to hear what you think of tiny sock circs. I tried a 9" needle to see if it would be easier for arthritic hands, but didn't find it as comfortable as DPNs. But I would have tried it at least one more time had it not disappeared! May be just a matter of what you are used to. And honestly, I love my little DPNs :) So please report back!
    Thanks for sticking with Comptonia during the recent Laptop Rehab Blackout...I'm trying to get caught up on reading all my favorite blogs, and yours is right up there :)


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
