This Friday is our town's Christmas lighting celebration. In addition our church is having their annual cookie walk and live nativity. And the Woman's Club is having a fund raiser too. So I have 12 dozen pinwheel cookies for the cookie walk, trays, cake stands etc. to take to church. Hot chocolate mix, tablecloths and a quilted Christmas wall hanging to take to the Woman's Club Building.
After I delivered these and had my hair cut I came home and made two batches of sand tart cookies. While the dough was chilling - I went down to the little house to work on the quilt I had loaded on Saturday afternoon.
I was having trouble with skipping stitches and thread fraying so I decided to leave it and see if I could determine what was going on. I read up on it and today I did three things. I loosened the the top thread tension, loosened the tension of the quilt top and also slowed down my speed. I only had one thread break today. I seem to have more problems with thread fraying when quilting batiks.
Started to bake the Sand Tarts about 5 PM. I scorched the very first ones.
Thar's more like it!
8 PM - cookies in oven, only two more trays to bake and
a mess to clean up!
I can tidy up while the last two sheets are baking.
About 16 dozen cookies! I think I'll eat corn flakes for dinner!
