I’ve been in the baking mood. It started with the vanilla sugar cookies which I made three times. Then some mochaccino bread pudding twice. And then on Mother’s Day mocha chocolate chip cookies. Alan says I am in the mood to bake at the weirdest times, which is true. I think I made these around 2 A.M. in the morning. These cookies were a little crunchier than I like but that didn’t stop me from eating them!

And sorry Olinda. I was totally about to mail you some. I was like this close. THIS CLOSE. I pulled out a bag and was about to write your address and everything. But then Alan woke up and said shouldn’t you put that in a box instead. And yeah…so I put some in the freezer for you!

And on Mother’s Day I was also in the mood to sew. I wanted to use this light blue fabric and make one of the cute skirts from Favorite Things. I bought this pattern quite a while ago, probably last August. When I first got it I took out the directions and read them and just never sewed one up. Well so on Sunday I was so excited to get sewing. I washed the fabric, ironed it, and when I went to the directions…what directions?!? I don’t know what I did with them. :( I searched high and low and cleaned up my craft area a bit (much to Alan’s delight) but could not find it. So change of gears. Instead of using this fabric for a skirt for me I’ve been working on a dress for Isabelle. But damn I really wanted to make myself a skirt. What to do? What to do? How to make it without directions?

Oh and almost forgot. Wanted to share this picture.

And lately Isabelle has been in the mood to sit in Waldo’s crate, yes the smaller crate. You can see the bigger one next to it. She crawls in and tries to close the door behind herself. And where’s Waldo? Poor guy is stuck in there with her.
