The sewing, cutting and re-fringing of Kim's shawl is done. And it worked! Isn't it gorgeous?
Hearst. In time, I hope, for all the fancy, seasonal dining and dancing my son will take her to this December.
From knitting to fruit cake. Is that a leap? Fred and I are fruit cake lovers. Each year in the fall, I make a light one and a dark one. The light one is a recipe from my 'maniacal- marathoner' cousin, Chuck. Yep. Hard to believe. He not only runs, but bakes fruit cake. The recipe is called 'The Oatman Family Fruit Cake Recipe'. An historical old family recipe, I gather. It is delicious. You see it here in the foreground.
"We'll have our first slice of fruit cake, Dear, the day you put up the lights."
And it worked! The lights went up yesterday and we had fruit cake with out tea. Yummy.
