Crepes for dinner

This evening I made Chicken Crepes. I haven't made them in a long time, but I remembered the last time I made them they were pretty good and dh liked them, too. Sorry, no picture. I actually made the crepes this morning as I was listening to Melinda Lee (a week-end am radio program). Anyway, the crepes were pretty simple to make, plus I have a crepe pan that I use occasionally. Once I made the batch I just put the stack in the fridge and they were ready for me to use for dinner. They also freeze well, just wrap tightly and freeze. I'll post the recipe later, I have other crepe recipes I would like to try - I mean with different fillings.

My dd is loving her new sewing machine. She is starting out simple and has already made a pillow. She used two western handkerchiefs that you can buy at Michaels, and she appliqued a design of some kind on the front. It looks really nice. She wants to make purses or tote bags now. Looks like she has been bitten by the sewing bug.

As for me, nada! I've been just too busy, plus I've been getting over a cold, so I thought, but I feel a sore throat still.

Still here

Our dd turned 21 last weekend! Wow, where did the time go? I still can remember the day she was born, being in the hospital, when my dh said "a girl!" He really thought we were going to have a boy, but so happy we had a girl! Anyway, without getting too mushy, it was a time I shall never forget, she was (and still is) a sweet "angel". Anyway, we drove up to Long Beach and took her out to dinner and gave her one of her gifts, a Scurvy Cruiser by Paul Frank. It's so cute!



I bought her a mini sewing machine from Sears.com that she really wanted, unfortantely it didn't arrive until the day after her birthday. So when she came home this weekend she was able to open the box and play with it. Another cute gift, I had a chance to sew on this little machine and it is definately not a "toy". It's a great portable sewing machine. I'm thinking about getting the pink one for myself. I'm so glad she wants to learn how to sew, now that she has mastered, knitting, cross-stitching, and crocheting. What's next?

Halloween treat bags

Good morning! A quick craft share with mini treat bags. Very simple to put together, I'm looking forward to making these because I love...
