Emily drives a fork-lift on night shift at Ditch Witch.
She is one of the few girls out there at night so what can I say
she has them eating out of her hand. –literally
Be very careful to follow directions precisely... no sneaking tastes!
Next you have to add the Nestlé Chocolate Chunks that you forgot and left in the hot car
so you stuck them in the freezer. You have one Big Hard Lump.
So you get out the butcher knife and start hacking.
It doesn’t work.
You have to get a hammer and start smacking.
Finally the chocolate is soft enough to start chopping with the butcher knife.
into the already mixed batter (Which you haven’t been snitching)
and spread it out in a Cookie tray sprayed with Pam.
Note how the chunks look like icebergs.
More chocolaty "bergs"
Put them in the hot oven and bake.
(Now I think you can look up the temperature and time yourself.)
Time to lick the spoon.
I mean really get into it.
You deserve it.
You have really worked hard.
We don't want to burn our tongue’s on the
molten chocolate chunks do we.
Now plate them up and watch them disappear.

I have set a goal to not buy fabric for things like this and try to use from my stash. (My husband will love this!) So here are close ups of some of the fabrics I used.
Fabric 1: Is autumn leaves with a few nuts. I great fabric I found in my stash. It is not a new retro print but older fabric. Very nice.
I have a lot of fabric that I have been given by friends who are cleaning out their stash, or are older and don't sew much any more. (You can never be to old!) So I don't remember where I got this but I love it!
I found it on their sale table. Always check out the sale table!!
Fabric 5: Again another gift fabric. What else can you call them when some one is giving away their stash. "I'm just a girl who can't say no!" You can nevre have to much fabric! Fabric 6: A great golden tan. You can never have to many tans. They go with so many things. I don't remember when where or why I bought this other then I love it and and it is a dark version of yellow my favorit color. I feel that every quilt needs a yellow in it to brighten it up. Well this is my yellow even if it is a tan. There is also a nice little brown print that Ipicked up at the shop in MO.

I cut them into strips, starting with 3/4" and increasing the stops by 1/4". The Largest is 2 1/2"
I then sewed them together as shown, going from smallest to largest in opposite directions.
I decided which colors I wanted to go beside each other and cut them again with the same increments and sewed them together the same way. I know I will be putting a border on it and some kind of decorative quilting.
I'll post more as it is finished.
