Today is one of those day when all I want to do is curl up and watch tv. Unfortunately that isn't happening, maybe tonight. we are getting some bad wind, rain and a bit of snow. Just and icky day.

Mac has gone to a friends to play while the girls and I did some baking. We made a pan of brown sugar brownies and also started some molases oatmeal bread in the bread machine. I had to make a recipe up as I have never found one that we like.

Kira's Molases Oatmeal Bread

1-1/2 cups warm tap water
2 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons molases
3-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoon instant nonfat dry milk powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup dry oatmeal
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Dump everything in breadmachine press start.

I have been working on finishing up some WIP and getting them ready for use. Here is my Spider Web Scarf.

I also finished up 2 dishcloth kitchen towel sets.

WIP Finally Finished

I'm so happy with myself I have finally finished my multi coloured afghan that I started not 1 but 2 years ago this month. I came to hate the pattern but I made myself finish it.

IMGP0755 Melissa has claimed it saying that it is very pretty. I have decided that she can use it but I do get to cuddle up with it while watching late night tv which is what I made it for.
