Easter Eggs and still here!

Good morning all!
I am still around, but have not spent much time online or posting on my blog. I will do so again soon as I have some things in mind.

Meanwhile, here is a pattern of mine you may wish to make for someone you love as Easter is just around the corner:

Recipe for Empty tomb biscuits (Roll dough works better)
One biscuit rolled out to about three inches.
Wrap the rolled biscuit around a large marshmallow and seal the edges very tight.
(someone said to spray a cupcake liner with PAM spray and put the roll upside down in the sprayed cupcake liner. This makes for quicker clean up in case the roll is not sealed tight. Bake for 10 minutes. Serve

When you eat the rolls, or biscuits discuss how the roll is empty like Christ's tomb was empty.

1- Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain other with them.

2- And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher.
3- And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.


Hug the ones you love and tell them how much they mean to you.

Hi, could you give knitting directions for the mile a minute afghan? I don't crochet. Thank you.

Hi ANonymous, I didn't know there were knitting directions for that afghan. Try a GOOGLE search from my main page and see if you get any results. I have to be to work by 6 am but I will try to remember to do the same when I get home later today.

This is so adorable!
& I was wondering if I could ask you a question. My aunt has asked me to make four baby hats for a one year old baby, but I'm having trouble getting the size right. The tips on your website have been very helpful but if it's not too much to ask, could you maybe explain what I should change to this pattern, to make it fit a one year old?
