Stitching & Cooking

Notice which one came first in the title - Stitching Rules.

A couple of weeks ago I was going to make a recipe and I purchased some Philly Cream Cheese so you know what that means .......cheesecake.  I finally got around to making it after much pestering from DH - Note he is back to work as of tomorrow for 3 days a week for 6 hrs each day for the next month and then the Dr. will assess his wrist. (For those of you who are new to my Blog DH injured his wrist and tore ligaments etc at work nearly 12 months ago - he underwent surgery in Nov and has been home recovering till now). I took photos of the White Chocolate Slice I made twice this week and the Citrus Curd Cheesecake Slice which melts in the mouth.


I have been having a wonderful time playing around with the photos in a programe which can be downloaded for free called Photoscape you can do all sorts of things with your photos - it is really user friendly and I love playing with it.

I have been stitching too - making great progress on Leaf, also started Julia Flynn (Dear Diary) © LHN last night and stitched on Falled Santa this morning



I just have to do the backstitching before making him up.  Doesn't he look gorgeous.  This is the last of the 6 Santas from the magazine Cross Stitch Card Shop.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments .  I really appreciate that you take the time to read and comment it means a lot to me.  God Bless till next time.

Oh, yum!!! I love your photo collage, too, Annette. I'll have to check out the Photoscape program, too. I've been looking for an easy to use photo editing solution to install on my new computer :)

Your cheesecake looks great! I'm sure it was a hit. Love your little Santa. He's so cute! Best wishes for your DH's return to work. He'll probably be sore and tired for a few days until he gets back in the groove of things.
