Mug Parade on Easy Street 4 ~

 This was a productive weekend. 

We have all these Christmas mugs done,

 Larry's work- I love it!

~ Lydia's Hello Kitty is sure a cute one ~

 Jerry's had some fun too; kinda mosaic lookin'

-and only 1 finished mug rug this week-!

 ~~~and,  I've completed Easy Street part 4 Woo-Hoo!!

Paper piecing is my way for accuracy. I used my Triangulations CD.

There are 4 more days of school before the Christmas break. Happy!

Oh! Let me share the recipe I've been makin' and takin' these last few weeks, and I've shared the recipe every time. Yum ~

Cranberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

cream together with blender:
 -1 stick butter    -1 cup sugar       
 -2 large eggs    -1 t. almond extract

in another bowl, stir together:
- 2 cups flour        -1 t. baking powder
-1 t.salt            -1 t. baking soda

add to creamed mixture alternately with:
 - 1 cup sour cream

Spoon into a 9 by 13 inch greased baking pan.

-1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce 
and stir
a bit to break it up. Drop about 9 spoonfuls onto
the batter, and then slightly cover over the sauce with
the batter...really, the batter kinda goes over the
berries by itself while baking.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cool.

Drizzle with a thick glaze made from:

-1 T. melted butter    -1 cup powdered sugar
-1 t. almond extract      -1 T. hot water

Merry Christmas 2012!

  1. Those wonderful mugs are multiplying. Great work on the mystery quilt!

  2. The mugs are looking good! Quite a few of them too! Your geese are looking good. Did you try making them using Bonnie's rulers? That's how I did them and I had no extra trimming that had to be done. You have some really cute greens there! I've copied your recipe and I think I'll give it a try. Thanks!

  3. Those mugs are just too darn cute!!!

  4. Those mugs are great! And the stars are perfect. Love the mug rug!!

  5. Your mugs are so impressive! You're quite the artist. I need to make a coffee cake tomorrow. Does your recipe work without the cranberry?

  6. The mugs are just darling! I can see that you have spent a lot of time on those geese this week!

  7. Your mugs are AMAZEBALLS!!!!! What a beautiful personalized gift! I haven't got around to making mine yet, guess it will be a project for after Christmas? May I ask where you got your flying geese template? Looks like a very good idea!

  8. Can't wait to see your quilt all done! You sure have been busy my friend!

  9. Love all the mugs! Looking forward to seeing your quilt done too.

  10. What a fun post full of really pretty projects, Pokey! Love the mugs and the rugs and the progress on the quilts. Sending along my wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and yours!
    Hugs, Carol

  11. Your mugs are awesome. Looking forward to more quilt stuff!

  12. Cute mugs and your quilt is looking great so far!

  13. Cute mugs! Your recipe sounds really good! I love anything cranberry. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

  14. You all are an artsy bunch with those cute mugs!

    That Triangulations paper was a lifesaver when I made a Bonnie Hunter quilt with loads of HSTs a couple years ago. I somehow found the size I needed online in a free PDF, but I bet that CD would sure be handy.

  15. Merry Christmas Pokey and thank you for your lovely blog.


Hello! Thank you for taking time to peek in! If you say hi, I do my best to send back the love :-}pokey
