Honestly, I really don't know when my stitching hiatus will end. Meanwhile trying to keep motivated will suffice.
Hope y'all are having a great summer!

A sudden desire for cookies followed by the realization that all ingredients were at hand...
the rest is history!
Made only half of the recipe with some minor modifications.
I used a trail mix of nuts and cranberries with a sprinkle of raisins
and a small amount of tiny chocolate morsels.
My brown sugar was useless so I omitted it and substituted the egg
(since I made only half recipe) with 1 tbsp flaxseed meal mixed with
3 tbsp warm water.
Since I didn't use the brown sugar the cookies were crispier but
I didn't mind at all since I was craving sweet and crispy :-).
These above I flattened a bit with a spoon half way baking time thinking
that it was needed. The ones below I let them be and ended up with
a nice natural rustic aesthetic which I liked much better.
For odd, we improvised some mini allergen free s'mores.
She enjoyed putting them together and even more eating them!
(Yes... that cookie sheet has served me well, I think it is time
to replace it and I believe you totally agree with me!)
Baby let mommy have some fun in the kitchen and
slept through the whole process :-).
Notes: I made half of the recipe with substitutions and modifications.
The recipe is the one underneath Quaker's Oatmeal lid and it can
also be found here.

I'm graduating my odd (oldest dear daughter) from safety embroidery scissors to cute pointy ones.
She loves them! (I do too!) Hopefully she will feel motivated to stitch this summer.
On another note, hopefully I will be able to do some stitching this weekend! It's been a while.
PS: (still posting from phone)

With so much going on these past few weeks I didn't get to post an updated picture of the last 3 blocks of my quilt.The kitty was the last one stitched. Can't wait to sew the 9 blocks together... that is, when I have the chance to stop by Joann and buy another spool of thread!
My desktop pc is out of service, we had an appointment to have it check but we couldn't make it so I wrote this from my iphone (while I fed and put baby to sleep) and my hand got stiff. I'm not a lover of typing too long with one finger :-/.
Have to go now... I hope to be able to visit y'all blogs (and comment) soon!
