In a good mood and with a sweet tooth

Oh my good golly gosh! Remember that ever so frustrating butterfly block I mentioned last post? Well, after trying it out 2 more times and making the same mistake both times again, turns out I had written down the pattern wrong! In two places!

It's all fixed now and I'm currently on my 4th block of my blanket! I've finished 2 complete butterfly blocks and a solid block. Going to do the checkered pattern in the same color. Unfortunately right now my camera is out of commission, well, it's my laptop that's out of commission, so can't post any pictures. (The desktop doesn't have a card reader and I don't
know where the cord is that goes to my camera to connect it to the computer.) But I'll get it up as soon as I get my laptop cord (Been a bit of a mix up in the mail, it was sent to our old address an hour away from where we live now.)

Sugary Goodness

On another note, I have a major sweet tooth. Anything smothered in chocolate sounds absolutely amazing right now. Chocolate covered chocolate? Yum. So I searched Etsy with the keyword chocolate in all categories and this is what I found! (Entries are going to be sort and sweet as I'm a wee bit on the tired side. Little one has been having trouble sleeping. Both in falling asleep a
nd getting back to sleep in the early morning hours. No amount of coffee has been helping.)

Because these are short blurbs, I'm going to try a little more visual approach and post the picture of the item to go along with it.

This assortment of chocolate magnets is sure to get anyone's sweet tooth up and raring to go! With several to choose, picking your favorite 3 could be hard to do.

There's no words for this body scrub that the maker didn't think of themselves. Just reading their description makes my mouth water! Here is a snip-it from the page:

"Steam billows rolling off a vessel of fresh made Turkish coffee, marshmallow goo tainted by graham cracker crumbs, toasted hazelnuts and blanketed in black chocolate"

These "chocolate and cream" earrings are darling. Rich, brown quartz with white fresh water pearls. Wear them for any special occasion to be the center of attention.

I almost thought these donut soaps were the real deal! In addition to looking like donuts they SMELL like them! Keep donuts around all the time and not have to worry about those pesky extra calories.

I love aprons and this apron is sure to impress when company arrives. Full coverage apron with two small pockets to hold this or that in which you need close by.

Signing Off

I plan on retaking all of my pictures for my shop. I have some lovely backgrounds I can use out here at our new location. I can't wait to get all of those updated. Before too long I hope to have this blanket done to share with you. I'm all sorts of happy with the progress and the way that it is turning out! I still haven't decided what size to make it, but I figure I'll know when it's big enough. I will keep you posted with the progress and keep sharing those shops with you.

Please feel free to stop by and visit my shop as well. In addition to PayPal I now am set up to accept Google Checkout!
