I got an urge to make shortbread, so I pulled out my fancy shortbread mold
I found a recipe on Google, made the dough, and baked it. Then I got so excited that I tried to turn it out of the mold while it was still warm
Lesson learned. So I went to my sewing room to make some quick-and-dirty potholders instead. They are not examples of great craftsmanship, nor do I think they meet Sparks’ requirements–they’re too small and not floppy enough, which is entirely a fault of the heat-resistant material inside them. I think I need to make an oven mitt, or fingertip grabbers…
And I have also NOT had the baby yet, though I’m in spitting distance of my due date. If you are worrying about when I have it, keep an eye on the Twitter feed in the right sidebar of the blog–I’m sure I’ll have plenty to say about that in the next few days. There are signs that things are progressing, which is good, but I know that there are miles still to go.
