A busy day and Sew & Tell...

 I spent a good amount of time in the kitchen today... If you know me, that is a rare event now-a-days... 8-)

First I made some Banana Nut Muffins... As you can see, they are half eaten already... That is what happens when you don't bake very often! 8-)

 Then I made 2 Rhubarb Tortes to bring to my CCC group tomorrow night... Mmm... Yum! 
We have a thing that if it is your birthday during that week, the birthday girl brings something to share in celebration... Kind of like making your own birthday cake!...?... Who does that!?!?! lol! 
We do!!! 8-)

I then went on to make a pot of Cream of Cauliflower Soup for supper. This time, after blending/processing the soup, I added fried and cut up Italian Farmer Sausage, as well as ripped up Kale for something different. 
It was good! 8-)

I then went to my Country Rose gathering. 
I hadn't been for a month, so it was nice to 
see the gals again!!! 

This is Pc's baby quilt she was binding... The rabbit is running away with a Log Cabin block!!!
 This is what she used on the back. Nice & soft!
 These are the blocks that Rs was putting together! Love the fabrics!
 And since I am seeing garden goodies on lots of blogs out there, I thought I'd show you what just opened up today in mine... There should be lots more tomorrow! 8-)
This is a volunteer that just popped up along the side of the house that we don't use, but where  the dogs "visit"... a bit of flowery fragrance? lol!

Finishes are constantly popping up on the PhD Challenge blog.  
Two days to go till the end of the challenge. Many of the ladies are making great progress... 
We have 134 finishes right now!
Pop on over there, click on the "DONE" label 
to view all the finishes...

That be it for tonight!
Hope you had the most wonderful day today!

Oh my...posts are getting toooooo long again!!!
Must change that... "again"...

It's always nice to step into the kitchen now and then to get re-acquainted with the oven. Do we get the recipe for the rhubarb tort? Our guild's last meeting night is Thurs. and it is a dessert night. I still have some rhubarb to use up...
Happy Birthday.
