sewing and red velvet cupcakes
February...I have to admit I'm glad it's over and we are one month closer to Spring. March has brought us a couple days of sunshine and 50 degrees, though tonight another storm arrives--a Northeaster--and we can expect 7 to 12 inches of snow and temps down to the single digits. It has been a good winter to get some basement cleaning, sewing, painting, and baking done. I've gotten a few totes and pouches sewn, the two above which can be found in the shop; and I finally finished the slipcover for our couch. Next up, some new seat covers for our kitchen chairs.
February is also birthday time for one of the kids and I made these Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I have good luck with recipes I've found on allrecipes.com, and this one was no exception. They are delicious, got rave reviews, and the recipe makes 30 cupcakes. I froze up the extras, which tasted just as good after being defrosted.
Hope are out of the path of the storm and enjoying some warmer weather. Have a good week,
