Fail.

28 Mar

So the church bake sale itself was a success.  But my little cookie holders, not so much.

Cookies

I made 20 little holders using washi tape, burlap strips and buttons.

Cookies

And I ended up buying 12 of them back before we dropped prices to 50%  for the last 10 minutes.

oh well Scott now has some fresh cookies and I have 12 decorated holders for some future event.

Oh well not a total loss.  Unbeknownst to me at the time, I guess I had a couple people trying to determine my age and so far I must be keeping the wrinkles at bay as the guess was a few years less than my actual age.  Thank goodness they weren’t trying to guess my weight.  Course maybe plumping up my wrinkles is what shaved those years off the guess.  Dang it.  Waddling off to the treadmill now.

10 more makes 80

Hmmm. Trysts only 9.  Hang tight while I figure out what happened with my numbering system…

so I thought this one was a duplicate snap of the same quilt, but I think it might be the 2nd of 3 identical but different sized tops.

Ufo  and yet….I don’t know….I’m going to say this is only 9 until I check it out closer.  I’m getting kinda close to 100……

And now 50! And a pickle.

So we have enjoyed the tradition of the pickle on the Christmas tree with the boys.  Last year however, the pickle was dropped and shattered into a crapzillion pieces.  Today we found a pickle at target.  It was only $3 so we decided to get 2 just in case.  Within 2 minutes of discovering the pickle, due to extreme excitement, the pickle was dropped, and shattered and the tears were flowing.  Thank goodness we had bought a spare.  I almost feel like we should go buy 2 more!  The tree goes up this weekend!  Yea!

THIS is 40

Seems like it is taking me 4ever to get all of these UFOs posted!  Are you sick of them yet?  If so, just blow on by the posts.  I’m using my blog as my record so it is what it is!

And onto the next 10.  I am kinda enjoying getting a quick peek at these UFOs.  Technically, some of them might be bordering on “vintage”.
