Thursday evening a few hooking buddies came over for food, drinks and some hooking too!
For the drinks we had Appletinis! Here's the recipe:
3 parts Absolute Vodka
1 part Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
A splash of Rose's lime juice
Shake with ice in a coctail shaker until it frosts then strain and serve. (I keep the vodka in the freezer)
The food was a Tuna Salad that I remember my mom and I making when I was young.
I had to wing it with the recipe, but this was good!
3 cans white Albacore tuna
Miracle Whip (I use fat free)
Cheddar Cheese cut into 1/2 inch cubes
red grapes (cut in half)
apples (cut into small pieces)
You'll notice there aren't any amounts in this recipe. Just make it like you're making regular tuna salad as far as the miracle whip and add the fruit "til you think there's enough!!!
Then for dessert, the now infamous Chocolate sheet cake. I found this recipe on thepioneerwoman.com/cooking. Just type in The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake, Ever. That's the name of it and it's true! We stood over the pan and kept cutting pieces with a knife and eating them~that's After we ate it on a plate!!
This is Renee's rug she is working on. (It's a window scene!) I'm so sorry I didn't get a picture of Renee'.
And Tammy is cutting wool for a new rug for a friend's baby. The baby is due in a week! She thinks she can get it finished if she works Hard!!!
Dulcy is working hard on her beautiful piece. She drew it and is hooking it in a #4 cut. She took this to Searsport for the camp with Jane Green. She specializes in pictorials. I think Dulcy is doing a Great job on this one!!!
You'll notice there's not a picture of what I'm working on. That's because I'm not really doing anything. I drew a pattern for a gift for my mother-in-law, but don't have enough done to show. And I don't want her to see it either!
It's too hot to go outside here so I worked on photographing wool all day. It's so hard to get the actual colors to show up with a point and shoot camera. Maybe someday I'll get a digital SLR camera. But until then, I have to depend on Photoshop to try to make the colors right!
Hope the rest of your weekend is great!
