I am actually quite excited about welcoming in a new year-I need a new one-lol
I am pretty much ready for the evening shrimp boil just down the road at our friend Mr L's place. The nuts are even better today-had to try one lol, the divinity has been packed and ready, and I have the mini sweet peppers halved and ready to stuff. I checked online and there were lots of ideas for spicing up the cream cheese-but they all said to bake or boil for a few minutes. So I will pop these in the oven about half an hour before we leave. It takes probably 5 or 7 minutes to get there, and said to bake around 15 minutes.
I also made up a batch of fresh cranberries and wild blackberries for a chunky sauce-may take that too or not.
The next thing is to figure out what I can wear-as I have not been able to put on a pair of jeans for a couple weeks now. (my poor back) Probably sweat pants-too wierd-lol Oh well.
One of the first things I am going to try making is a hexie-as I have never made one. My new blog friend Val sells templates made out of thick glass so I ordered a large one, and asked if it was possible to get a clear glass one for fussy cutting too. I got them in-and can't wait to use them now. I am also thinking of using these templates to cut out wool-instead of making round wool circles for pennys why not use a hexie shape?? So that is on my list to try as well. Oh and here is a link with photos of hexagon quilts They are made teenie tiny or larger-I am going for larger at the moment.
Hope you have a safe and fun New Year's Eve
