Your ~ Weekend…eh Monday ~ ChuckleΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• 

I’m a bit late for the weekend chuckle…sorry about that! πŸ˜” Yesterday I couldn’t find anything ‘chuckle worthy’. It probably had something to do with the nasty cold hubby shared with me 🀧 so I wasn’t in a great mood yesterday, and everything was just stupid not funny. 😏 But…I learned to laugh again! 😁

So I looked once more, and found some memes thay did make me laugh. Let’s see if you agree, or if it’s just the cold meds messing with my head πŸ˜‰

It is a ridiculous trend…but 2030 made me laugh πŸ˜‚

Speaking of ridiculous trends 😳 And, yes, it’s a real thing πŸ˜–

I think I just threw up a little 🀒

WIP ~ Wednesday β˜€οΈ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•  

Remember him? 😜


So…Happy Hump Day to you! 😍

Honestly, I really don’t have a lot to show you today…but – nevertheless – here I am 😎

This here is done I think and is only included because I might add fringe in between the ‘Lollipops’…but then again…maybe not. What do you think?


….aaaand another ‘Gypsy Cardigan’ – I love this color combo (not like the pesky yellow/grey that doesn’t wanna play nice with other colors πŸ˜‰) 

That’s all for this week’s WIPs…can you believe it’s only two 😳 And one is barely one. 

Well, I do have/wanna make more Cupcake Dishcloths…they’re selling like…eh, cupcakes at the shop. 😁

I also have Part IV of the CAL – I’ll bring you that tomorrow. 😊

Take care! πŸ’œ Enjoy your evening 😍

Your ~ Weekend ~ Chuckle πŸ€‘

Hello and ‘Happy Sunday’ my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope you’ve recovered from last night’s shenanigans 😝 I’m peachy – I spent the evening with Sheldon Cooper & gang, my crochet hook and yarn. Very exciting! 😏

I think I found some ‘chuckle worthy’ things this week…there might even be a LOL or two among them! πŸ˜ƒ

Let’s see – there’s this 

Speaking of Saturday night shenanigans 😁


Which one are you? 😏

You’re probably sick of this shoe by now….but I have to know! 😬

I see a pink shoe with somewhat white/minty laces, stripes, and sole 


That’s all for today! I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous Sunday…maybe I helped a little bit 😁

Take care 😍

Fantastic Bake-Along – Chili/Chocolate Bread πŸ˜

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

It’s that time of the month again 😁 Time for our ‘Fantastic Bake-Along’

The lovely Tracy, host of the baking weekends and the fabulous quilter/writer of the awesome It’s a T-Sweets Day blog, picked one of my bread recipes to be the 🌟Star🌟 of this month’s event. 😊
If you missed my post on Tuesday…you can find it and the recipe here πŸ˜Š

Tracy already posted her baking result…and even her recipe for hand-mixing/oven baking πŸ˜Thank you for that, Tracy! πŸ€—

I just saw that Emma from Emma Crafts Design is already done baking 😊 and it looks like she loves it! 😍

Hold on….Lucia is done too πŸ˜ƒ You have to see what her little helper did when Mom wasn’t watching πŸ˜…

If you like to join the fun next month….just visit Tracy’s blog, and let her know. Go ahead – you know you want to. 😁

Let me know if you baked/liked this bread  πŸ™‚ 

I’ll be back later with the ‘Weekend Chuckle’ πŸ™ƒ

Until then πŸ’•

A Bug, Β Two Hats, and Three Squares πŸ˜

Hello my lovely friends  πŸ’• 

Word of advice….if you’re squeamish – scroll by the first picture real fast 😝 

Okay – you have been warned πŸ˜‰

A Bug 

This weird, but somehow very fascinating, creature was hanging out by our front door yesterday 😳


I had never seen one in ‘real life’ …just photos. They really do look like sticks, especially since this one had a leaf stuck to it. 😁 Just the feelers – moving frantically- gave it away. 

Two Hats 

I love Pixie Hats 😍 So this week I gathered up my courage, and finally gave it a try…

First I made a Toddler size one…using an easy pattern from Two Little C’s

The yarn is ‘Fruity Stripes’ from Red Heart’. Not usually my choice for wearable accessories/clothing, but I love the colors. And like my daughter pointed out…’It definitely is water-repellent’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

For the second one I wanted to use a yarn from my stash – Lion Brand ‘Landscapes Tropics’

It is an acrylic yarn, but looks and feels like wool (without the scratchy-ness πŸ˜‰) and it’s machine washable. 

I knew I didn’t have enough for the pattern, so I started at the band, and worked my way up. I decreased as I saw fit…and am proud to report that it worked on the first try. 

If I ever manage that again 😊 there will be a written pattern. 

Three Squares 

Two, three weeks ago I started on a new ‘Gypsy Cardigan’. I always use the ‘Mandala Cakes’. It was a struggle from the beginning, because the colors/lengths didn’t match from one cake to the next. But somehow I made it work. πŸ˜„ So I had matching squares

On to the contrasting triangles. Ha – you’d think ‘yellow and grey…pretty neutral colors. Easy peasy’. Well, no! Not true πŸ˜– Nothing seemed to work

No green-ish, no purple, no teal…I now have enough triangles to make a separate cardigan πŸ˜‚

I took everything apart, and thought ‘I’ll make a shawl’. A quick border, seams – done! 

Nope πŸ˜• Colors look ok…but there’s a lot of puckering going on 

I’m beginning to think that these squares don’t wanna be anything …except maybe a pillow in a ’70s german living room 😜


See it there…on the right…on top of the couch. πŸ˜‚

I’m not giving up though. Something will come to me. 😁

Alrighty – that’s all for today 😊 Oh, one more thing…I’d like to send you into the weekend with a little chuckle 


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Have a fabulous Friday πŸ’• 

I’m sending Love ❀️ Smiles πŸ˜ƒ and Hugs πŸ€— your way, and hope to see you tomorrow for the ‘Fantastic Bake Along’s Chili/Chocolate Bread’! 

Attention Chocolate Lovers πŸ’• Chili/Chocolate Bread AheadΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Are you ready for some baking? 😊 Then I have a treat for you! 

No tricks, just some deliciousness πŸ‘»

I love to experiment in the kitchen. So when I was ready for a new breakfast bread – the Raisin Bread got a bit boring – and came across a Chocolate/Chili bar at a store…it all came together.😍I picked up some chocolate chips (Ghirardelli Bittersweet) – that’s all I needed, everything else is always in the house. 😁

That was a few weeks ago. I mentioned it in a post here, and the lovely Tracy – awesome quilter, fabulous blogger, and all around a wonderful person – asked if I would like this bread to be the πŸ’«StarπŸ’« of this month’s ‘Fantastic Bake-Along’. 😊 Needless to say, I was thrilled to say ‘Yes!’ 

If you don’t just wanna bake this bread, but also share it with the rest of the ‘Fantastic Bakers’, please let Tracy know, and she’ll include you in the list. πŸ˜ƒ She will even send you a reminder every month – like I said…a wonderful person! 😍 All you have to do is head over to her blog It’s a T-Sweets Day and let her know. πŸ˜€ I hope you decide to join us, and share your beautiful baking results with us. πŸ€—

Alrighty…now to the recipe for the 

Chocolate/Chili Bread 

I made it in my bread machine. If you do the same, place all the ingredients, in this order, in the bread pan fitted with the kneading paddle 

For a small loaf (1 lb.)

Milk, room temperature  –   3/4 cup

Unsalted Butter, room temperature, 1/2″ pieces  –    1/4 cup 

1 egg

Salt.  –  1/2 tsp.

Granulated Sugar  –  2 Tbsp.

Bread Flour   –  2-1/4 cups

Chili Powder   –  1-1/2 tsp. 

Yeast, active dry, instant, or bread machine   – 1-1/2 tsp.

Select the ‘Basic/White’ program, 1 lb., and your desired crust color, and start the machine. When the mix-in tone sounds, add 1 cup chocolate chips. 

Note: The Ghirardelli chips have a very intense chocolate taste. The Chili therefore is just an aftertaste…a mild ‘burn’. To intensify the Chili flavor you might wanna use Milk Chocolate Chips. 😊

Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. 

I wish I could give you Hand Mixing Instructions here, but I have no experience in yeast-bread baking outside my bread machine 😌 I looked through all my cookbooks…none of the recipes has the needed ingredients listed. 

So…fellow bakers…if you have a trusted recipe that can be used here, please let me know. I will gladly include it. ☺️

Happy baking! I’m looking forward to seeing your bread, and can’t wait to hear what you think of this concoction  creation 😁

Now head over to Tracy’s blog, and tell her you wanna join us! 😘

Sending Love ❀️, Smiles πŸ™‚, and Hugs πŸ€—
