Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom has been working on this pair of socks FOREVER!
She FINALLY got one done~
And she's been truly wishing that hoomans didn't have two feet!
This second sock is just not getting anywhere! It's almost like she purposely avoids knitting it!She's was knitting mini-Christmas stockings and now, of course, it's the Airedale quilting bee's block for the 2010 rescue quilt, which by the way is almost done, but unfortunately because it's a top secret project, we can't show the finished block to you and you probably won't be able to see mom's block and all of the other blocks until summer! It's a long process but trust me, it'll be well worth the wait!
Today mom made Date Nut Bars for our Christmas cookie platter!
Here's the recipe in case some of you would like to have it:
In a large saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add 1 cup of brown sugar. Add 2 eggs, mixing these ingredients well. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts. Keep mixing the ingredients in this saucepan as you add each one. Now add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. And lastly, add 10 ounces of chopped dates.
Pour this into a greased 9 inch pan and bake at 325 degrees for approx 40 minutes!
When the date nut bars have cooled. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and cut into bars.
I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy and safe new year!
See you all in 2010!
