Christmas is coming!!

Finally got a minute to post a picture. These are the ruffled scarves, very easy to make.
Go to youtube, pull up tutorials for starbella yarn, there are several to choose from.
The red scarf has metallic thread on the edge, those are a little stiffer, more fullness,
also the tutorial will tell you to pull up eight loops, I found eight made the scartf a little
"flimsy", needs more fullness, I pull 12-14 loops, and the scarf will be long enough.
Also, pull the yarn from the middle, this stuff twists, and you will have to drop the
ball a few times, and let the thread untwist. These are simple, fun, very cute. One woman
at Michael's told me she is selling these for $30.00. Now I would not pay that much for
a ruffly scarf, but I am pairing a couple of matching socks with these, and I think making
a nice gift.

Three hours shopping, two cleaning, one hour decorating, three hours cooking. Two hours clean up after lunch. All time well spent so my grandson could put the finishing touches for dessert.

I saw this recipe on the Taste of Home internet bb. Slutty brownies, rich gooey, and not WW friendly at all. But ya gotta live sometimes. Very easy, pat out a chocolate chip cookie mix in the bottom of 9x13, a layer of Oreos, double stuffed of course, then pour on your favorite brownies mix on top, and bake.
