Does this ever happen to you?

Where you finally get all the bits and pieces lined up ready to go and then a wrench gets tossed into the works, effectively derailing what you're doing?

Jen Fulwiler Made me Cry and Why I’m a Better Quilter for it

Ruined: The Angel Food Cake Saga

Oh how I enjoy kneading the dough until it's just the right consistency then there's that yeasty build up from the moment it goes into the oven when dough and heat combine preparing the bread for consumption.

Pardon me While I get a bit Sentimental

It all starts about mid-May every year. Sweet, sweet memories of the beginnings of the preparation for our wedding. Figuring out what we could do. Finding a wedding dress in the City for under my budget. Finding wedding rings.
