Little Miss Ophelia snuggling down for a nap – actually I sprinkled some catnip on that cushion and she is trying to get as close to it as she can.
I made a tiny start on Mary Davies 1769 (The Sampler Girl), I’m using Belle Soie Wheatgrass and Petticoat Blue on Cream Edinburgh linen, I like just using two colors, fast progress. I plan to use Butterscotch Belle Soie for the gold in this design. I think I’ll change the bottom to say: ‘Worked by Jane Austen, In the Year 1804, Bath’ for my JA collection of stitched things.
I made some blueberry muffin cake this evening (made a muffin recipe but baked it in a 9×13 pan instead). It’s pretty yummy. I tried a recipe I found online here, I just sprinkled sugar on top without the cinnamon.
I have one batch of last minute orders to get in the mail tomorrow and I’m planning to blog once more before the break – I plan to twitter messages here from my cell phone now and then, so you can follow me there or read those messages here at my blog at the top of the side column where it says ‘tweets’.
