What I've been up to this week...

I have a couple of recipes that I need to post but I wanted to show what I've been doing this week, even though it isn't necessarily cooking.

For Christmas I got a new embroidery/sewing machine and I've been thoroughly enjoying figuring it out. I can see myself becoming obsessed with my new toy. I've embroidered on all my "empty" aprons, random dishtowels and I've been contemplating the pillowcases that are currently hanging out in the linen closet, you know, just for practice.

I made several of these potholders this week in the appropriate Valentine's Day spirit. I am still figuring out the perfect positioning tricks but by the time I had done 8 I was significantly closer than when I started. :)

What do you think?
