Valentine's, Part II

Here is what I got for Valentine's Day this year. DH made hearts flutter in all the ladies at my work by getting me these:

Here is a bouquet that a co-worker received that really intrigued me.....can you guess why?

They are made out of ..............................drumroll, please!........................dried APPLES!!! Does anyone out in blogland know how to make these? I searched the internet and found one set of instructions. I might give it a whirl sometime, just to see if I can do it!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I celebrated by baking a Red Velvet cake for DH to take to work! I am trying to limit my own intake of sweets, since I am trying to eat healthier and lose weight, but I love to bake! So Voila! I came up with the bright idea to go ahead when I want to bake, then just send the resulting goodies to DH's work! His co-workers told him that they enjoy getting a treat once in a while, and I get the satisfaction of baking something, but not gaining the weight! It is a solution that works for everyone!

I have been sewing some lately, not doing much of anything else. The items below are burp cloths and bibs for one of our friend's soon-to-be-born granddaughter. I also made a receiving blanket, but didn't get a photo of it before we gave the gift to our friend.

I am working on another amigurumi crochet monkey (different pattern), but haven't had much time to work on it this week. I hope to remedy that this weekend.
