On Saturday, I met up with my circle of stitching friends at Kim's house. Her house is just too cute. It is always decorated with the season. Now it is fall and Halloween. I was sitting on the couch in the livingroom admiring the decor and talking to Kim's husband about these pieces of granite my husband has and how they could make a cute walking path up the side of the driveway. When I said how much I loved the life sized witch and how the skeletons outside were me and my husband (one is holding a beer and one is holding a Smirnof Ice--me!), Kim's hisband said he was living in Macy's window display.
What a unique way to put it. There is stuff everywhere, but it creates a whole look. Macy's should hire Kim! Go to her blog Kimsbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com and look for the post on Friday, October 12, 2012. It is labeled Spooky.
On Friday I was doing a bit of embriodery and cutting out pieces of the quilt I am working on--Mindy's Quilt by Melinda Bula. On Saturday, I met up with my stitching friends and we made gingerbread men for a diplay. We had a wonderful time. I really look forward to these days. Fun, food, laughter. It has it all for me! We had these pomegranite margaritas. Had I been at home and able to nap, I wold have had more. And I would ahve blended them. It comes in a bottle already made. All you have to do is pour....Yumm.
I made a fabulous dessert. A layered chocolate thing with cream cheese and whipped cream. Each of us had a small piece because it is very rich, except for Sandy who doesn't care for dessert. I had at least 2/3rds of the 13x9--inch baking dish left. It was gone last night. My husband and sin just love it and their friends had a few pieces. I was totally craving it and it is so rich that you need more than just the three of us eating it!
