Today is my day to post my Virtual Cookie Exchange and Christmas Blog Hop...
I've decided I needed a couple more pin cushions. So I found one on line and made one....well, I made 3. I made one for each season. I'll change them out on the seasonal equinox.
As we haven't hit the winter equinox yet, fall is the one on my desk with all my pins and needles stuck in it. These pin cushions are not exactly like the ones I got on line. Mine aren't as puffy. I didn't have any poly-fill, so had to use quilt batting. But I like them and that's all that matters. These are my Christmas gifts to me. MERRY CHRISTMAS to me!!!!
You can make your own....just go here.

I'm sharing a recipe I make every Christmas...it's call Tomato Soup Chocolate Cake....yea I know, sounds weird...but it's really good!
1/2 C. Butter 1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 Eggs 2 C. Flour
1/2 C. Cocoa 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
1/4 C. Warm Tap Water 1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Tomato Soup
Preheat overn to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9 x 13" pan.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar; add eggs, beating until fluffy. In a small bowl mix together dry ingredients, mix tomato soup and water together. Add dry and we ingredients alternately to the butter/sugar bowl. Bake 30 minutes and let cool before adding frosting . I used Cream Cheese Frosting for mine.
