What’s on my blog and a time breakdown of other projects

I have added additional tabs to my site with a list of favorite family recipes and other recipes I want to try.

There’s only two recipes up there now (the heated Mexican dip is excellent and is served with tortilla chips), but I intend to post more as time permits. The tabs are at the top of the page.

I finished the dishcloth last night. There was only a little yarn left over.

Tonight, I finished the first knot of the celtic stole too. (add pic)
