Late Post

I had intended to do this post yesterday, but the day just got away from me. We are putting together a cookbook at my church and I am one of the ones who is typing every body's recipes into the computer so they can be emailed to the publisher. It was slow at work yesterday and so I got really caught up in typing. I hope to get lots more typed today. We still have lots and lots to type. Some people have emailed theirs to me which has made it a lot easier. But you know there are lots of older ladies and some young in the church who don't even own a computer, much less know about email!

This past weekend was a busy one. Hubby and the kids and I went to Mobile, which is 70 miles south of here, to have Tara's senior pictures taken at Olan Mills. She had them taken at school but hubby did not like any of them. Olan Mills did a much better job and the price is much, much better! We also were able to get a couple pictures taken with Tara and Keith together. Hubby wanted all of us to have our pictures taken together but I did not want to do that as our daughter, Amber, was at college and not with us. We are gonna go back sometime when Amber is home for a long visit and can go with us. I would love to have a family portrait taken. I don't think we have ever had a family portrait done of the five of us. We had one taken back in 1990 when Amber was 3 and I was pregnant with Tara.

Of course while we were in Mobile I had to go to the fabric store. So after we got through at the photographers they dropped me off at the fabric store and went to do some other stuff. I really liked that. If they are all there with me they will bug me to death asking me when I am gonna be ready to leave! As it was they were gone for quiet a while and so I got to browse around. I didn't buy much, but I did meet a very nice lady named Lillie. She makes purses and such. She had a beautiful purse with her that she had made. She had the cutest poodle. He reminded me of a little poodle I had for years named Buffy. I will have to post her picture on here sometime. Anyway, Lillie had her poodle in the neatest thing. It is just like a baby stroller only it has mesh all around it and a zipper so you can put the dog in and he is secure but can see and breath, of course. I think that is so neat! If I still had my Buffy I would get her one.

I did buy this book "Warm Fuzzies" by Betz White. It is full of great things to make. I really want one of the cupcake pincushions. I was reading Joanna's blog this morning called Applique Today and she had purchased the same book! I can't wait to make something out of it!

I also bought these two great pieces of fabric! I don't know what I am gonna make out of them yet, but I just fell in love with them and had to have them!
Sunday afternoon I did a little baking! I don't do too much of that. I made this great cake called Ooee Gooee cake. It is delicious! When I was in my early twenties, before I got married, this lady at church used to make this all the time. She is the sweetest lady. She has always been like a second mama to me. Her name is Sister Willie. Anyway, this is the best cake. My daughter, Tara, loves it and keeps telling me I need to make more and more of them! So I guess I will!

First of all, that cake does look ooey gooey delicious and I will come on over to try a piece! And I love that fabric too- I don't know how much you bought- maybe you could make some really cool throw pillows?

I'm intrigued, what on earth is a 'ooey gooey' cake????? Love the look of that book, can't wait to see what you make from it!
