More Sugah ...

So ... I finally finished the paper-piecing sample and I'm more than happy with it. Except for the fact that it took way, way too long to make, but what did you expect? For those that have any interest in it (are there any who are interested in it?) all of the patterns for the paper-pieced blocks (which include the borders) came from Carol Doak's book (complete with CD ... so, so easy to use) called 300 Paper-Pieced Blocks ... or something like that.

Now I am furiously at work on the machine-applique sample and let me just say ... that although she doesn't know it ... my own Mrs. Dub actually designed it and it is quite splendid, if I do say so myself.

Which brings us to the most important topic of the day ... chocolate chip cookies. (Pretty much the most important topic of any day.) Those pictured above were personally made for me by the PDaddy as part of his Mother's Day tribute and they are particularly nummy.
So ... two questions:
How was your Mother's Day? ... and ...
Are you concerned that my posts are clogging your arteries?

Those cookies look fabulous, but licking the screen has not satisfied my craving. Also, I'm curious about this applique. How does one design something without knowing it?

Your quilt is so HAPPY looking! and what a man that Pdaddy is! Mother's day was good around here. Men cooked, Women ate, Men tried to clean up, I finished it. (which I really don't mind at all, as long as I don't have to cook!) XOXO

Quilt is gorgeous. You're a paper piecing, color picking genius. Cookies weren't bad for a first effort off the Tollhouse package. But a little over-cooked and too thick. Next time, butter instead of butter-flavored shortening, add some oats, slightly thinner dough, and a little less baking time. Oh just call one of Glamma Fab's Gourmet Girls for a tip. But maybe I won't wait till Mother's Day to try again.

Your quilt and cookies look great but I bet only one tasted good. Anytime you cookie tips call Hilari I am her sous baker and I will remember to always save a batch for PDaddy and Miss Mary. I dont think I even know about paper piecing -does everything have to be cut straight?
