I love to cross stitch. I find it so relaxing, the rythmic criss crossing of the embroidery floss.

Mocha Monday

I already a cupboard full of coffee mugs but would love to add these to my collection.

1. Mr. Darcy Proposal Mug-WrappedInLove (Who wouldn't want to start the day with the romance of whimsy of the love affair between the headstrong Elizabeth and the reserved Mr. Darcy.)

2. Flower Mug in Blue-kimwestad

3. Coffee Cup Cozy-natayla1905 (Not technically a mug but love it! Especially since I always seem to burn my hands on my mug when I make tea.)

4. Left Handed Pottery Mustache Mug-AnnMariesPottery (Alright, I don't have either of these but how considerate that this artist would make a mug not only for a left handed coffee drinker but a left handed coffee drinker who has a mustache!)

5. Heart Carved Into a Tree-TwistedRiverClay

Stuff I am Working On Saturday

So here are a couple of things I am working on. First one is a Wristlet that I am making out of some fabric I have had for a long time! I actually bought it before I really knew how to sew but it was one of those patterns I just had to have. I loved the mint color of the background and who can resist paper lanterns and the little Chinese flats?! And it was one of those fabrics that I fell in love with and just could not bring myself to cut up. Is that crazy or do other fabric lovers do that to? Get attached to fabric so that they can't make anything out of it unless it is the perfect project? it could just be me. (Shrug)

The other thing I was working on today is banana nut muffins. Yummy! I had three bananas that were beyond ripe and I thought it was such a waste to just throw them away. So I skimmed through my Betty Crocker Cookbook and found a super easy recipe for these muffins. And they are pretty good. They are a tad dry but butter fixes that right up!

Here is the recipe if you would like:

3 medium ripe bananas, mashed up

3 tbsps vegetable oil

1 large egg

1/3 c sugar

2 c Bisquick original baking mix

1/2 cup raisinsor chopped nuts

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups or line paper baking cups.

2. Beat bananas, oil, egg and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Stir in baking mix and raisins just until baking mix is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Divide batter evenlyamong muffin cups.

3. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool muffins in pan 5 minutes; remove from pan wire rack. Serve warm if desired.

Yum! Enjoy!
