    oooh it is a lovely combination. i buy fresh or frozen berries, the dried ones only seem to taste like raisins to me but I chopped them tiny (they were frozen, i used a chopper whuzzer thingie ) and mixed with finely chopped walnuts to add to the basic cookie mix, any will do depending on how one likes one's cookies Today I used one without leavening, as for shortbread. The berries gave a pink tinge to the dough, the taste is delicate and if I keep typing here I won't be tempted to i must make the maple syrup again too :puts-maple-syrup-on-shopping-list:

    Although I can cope it is tiresome. stormy weather, trees and power lines don't mix. If someone builds an efficient wind generator for the home I'm in

    It is the leftover yarn from the sweater! I am knitting a cowl to join to itself at the grey row. There are a few beads knit in. I've not done that before. paper person too Learning and making the cards was so much fun! erm... after the party I collected everyone's cracker papers to make into boxes or something. Too pretty to get rid. The key idea is probably all over Pinterest. Just new to me

    There is that. Assuming someone does... If lots of outages could be a wait. Or all the crews went home early Good you have it back, and to have the helpful friend. My house got so cold it was like a walk-in, walk-around fridge tea time on the grid again

    One of my art-y friends makes pendants from blank keys and "jewels" - on this one a ruby button and some inexpensive wedding bindi. And some 16 faced Turkish map fold cards by me. With gold snow
