sneaky purchase....

I love the look of the snowflake granny afghan. How pretty! (But, I just found a free pattern for the same thing on-line....!)

I know, I know. I said there was a moratorium on spending. But there I was at Hobby Lobby, and all Leisure Arts books were 30% off. And I happened to find these...

and, well, um, you know, they were 30% off.

I have seen
some examples of these online, and wanted to make these specific patterns. So, I knew which books to look for. It took me about an hour to find them, as there was no rhyme nor reason to how the books were displayed.

See, I worked for them....;-b

DH and I went to a balloon show last night, at our local community college. It was very pretty.

Um, 'scuse me DH, I'm trying to get a picture here!

Today in AM they launched the balloons....

For today's recipe, I am directing you to a great recipe I found online a few weeks ago. I have made them twice, and they are consistently good. I love the fact that these
cinnamon buns can be made without a yeast dough, cutting the prep time down to do-able for my lifestyle. Family concurs: these rock!

Oh I really want to make the circular ripple afghan! I'm going to have to hunt down that booklet. Thanks for once again being a member of the naughty-enabler club! :-D

Glad you're with me, Opal! I feel much less guilty now...;o}
