bits and pieces

Hi again, Mary Ellen here.

Early in my blogging adventure with you (I think at our first provider) I posted a recipe for a chocolate cake for one which was a big hit. It was one of those “recipe in a mug” concoctions that you cook in the microwave for really quick results. I’ve found another one for you! This one is a chocolate chip cookie for one-done in about 10 minutes, they say. Can anyone tell I have a tremendous sweet tooth? I never get this excited over broccoli! Here’s the recipe!

Fons and Porter are offering a free e-book of Civil War style quilt patterns if you sign up for their newsletter. One of the patterns is for a small Hummingbird/Periwinkle quilt. Here’s the spot.

While looking around for more “modern” quilting to write about, I came upon this great tote bag made for a swap the LA modern quilt guild ran. I’m not sure what it is that is so appealing since it really is a very simple bag, but it’s Darn Clever! Maybe it’s the look of the notebook paper background.  Here’s the bag.

The dryer and the oven timer both just “dinged”, so I’m off!
