Anniversary Rug

Well it is completely done! In the nick of the time as our anniversary is tomorrow Oct 3rd. I made it as a gift for my husband.

I sewed a white hanky on the back, that has all of our
wedding information written on it.

And my sweet husband bought me a new food processor.
Ok I know you may not think it is romantic but for me it is!
I am a thrifter of all things, I have never had a new food processor.
The one I have is missing parts but I paid 2.00 for it! My kitchaid
mixer I got at a sale for 5.00 it is avocado green but runs like a charm. I love to cook and to have new things for the kitchen is amazing. I would never spend the money on myself even though husband encourages me to spend money on it all the time.

To heck with the new car smell to smell the packing material of
a new kitchen item mmmmm
I know weird!

And since fall is coming around...

I baked pumpkin muffins. They are the best I have ever made.

Yep filled with cream cheese mmmm
If you want the recipe go to king Arthur Flour.
 I hope your week was a great one!

I dont even have a food processor myself. Those muffins look so yummy. I have found a slow cook pork taco recipe that includes pumpkin that I want to try soon. Your rug looks amazing! Will see if Bob can ship out your goodies in the morning....if he is not too busy, otherwise they will go out on Tuesday for sure. Congrats again! Janice

I hope you have a wonderful anniversary. Your rug is just lovely. So are your muffins.
I think it is so nice your husband knew what you needed. I think that is just the best. I hope you have a lovely week.

Your rug turned out fantastic. Hubby will love it. Sorry to say mine has been at a stand still for a few weeks as it's been quilt shows galore here and that has been taking up my time. I do have time to finish mine as our anniversary is in December. Happy 40th!!

The rug came out beautifully and such a meaningful gift. I am like that too, he buys me things I am too cheap to pay for, lol.
I am the thrifty one in our house. I miss making specialty breads but most have ingredients I can't use now.
I do have a lot of apples, maybe some apple bread, not perfect but it is still a nice treat.

Your Anniversary rug is beautiful! Happy Anniversary! Our Anniversary was the 2nd. :-) I enjoy new gadgets for the kitchen as well... sometimes it's just fun to "pretend" we're baking on our very own cooking shows! lol!

Happy anniversary. Your rug is beautiful and I think the hanky idea as a label is brilliant.

Enjoy your new toy..we all love them, don't we, whether it be sewing, hooking, cooking,DIY gadgets.
