Making Banana bread almost done! Want some? Come to my house. I'll be home all day!!!!!
We are getting a little dusting of snow. Still cold outside.
So what is going on in your world of sewing?
I'm just relaxing for a time and then finishing up my sons jeans.
Then off to find another project to do. Maybe some jeans for me to ride motorcycle with. I think I'll have to check that one out.
Happy anything everybody!!!!!!

More details of what that soup is please!

DH cousin came New Years Eve & we had the best pizza ever! ... feta cheese, spinach, extra cheese, mushrooms on a very thick crust! ...too bad no yum yum chewing smile to put here.....
New Years day the guys took me to a bookstore! Yup I got to browse all the magazines, kitty cat books (bought one), found Mom's movie magazine for her birthday.......... anyways sure is a good way to start out the New Year!...; )

Today DH took me to Janome dealer to get zipper foot for my sm! And to the big fabric shop in a nearby town when he got off work. ... so how about that ?! If it weren't for my migraine it would be another really GREAT day! ....

So I hope for more good days in the year ahead. .....

The end of Dec 2012 was more sadness with deaths in our family ... I think I am glad that month has come to a close. .....

Happy New Year! I hope it is a good one for all my sewing friends here on PR!

Eek.....totalling the damages ut oh! ....

The soup!
knepla soup
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup warm water. (this is the dough)
add water to make a medium-stiff dough, let dough rest 1/2
hour or longer.

Soup base
Start with about 2 quarts of water or use a chicken stock for soup base. I like the chicken cubes I put in about 8 of them to 2 quarts of water.
in the water add 2 medium patatoes in the water, add 1or2 bay leaves , whole spice, slice celery, onion , salt about 1tsp. a dash of pepper. boil until potatoes , celery, onion are done.
use enough water as is used for soup broth.
Bring the soup base to boil, Drop dough into potato water by cutting into small pieces
with a scissors or a knife. Boil for about 3 minutes or more.
At the end add about 1/2 cup of milk or cream 1 tablespoon of butter.
Have fun making it tgm and kittys.

Now I've been very busy with the store. We are in inventory mood.
Count, count, count, count. Thank goodness it will end this weekend. Then onto sewing for valentine's day!!!!!!!
Here's a few fun pictures from facebook.
Super Dog!!!!!!


If you have grandchildresn!


For January what are you doing?
Happy everything or anything even birthdays , anniversarys!!!!!!

Well we are 10 days into the New Year! It is 36 outside! Though the snow is to return on Sunday ... it was kinda nice out today.
DH has the evening off of work today so that is nice.....

Horray for me I found my ironing board again after the Christmas sewing frenzy.... Smile....

We have family birthdays coming up this month. I hope I remember to send the cards out....
