May Crafternoon









May’s Crafternoon was all about English Paper Piecing, just like I did in my paper piecing necklace, but larger sizes. I love paper piecing and I should of been working on my “five year quilt”, which at this point should probably be finished considering I started in back in 2009! But instead of hexes I wanted to try out diamonds, so I have basically started a second quilt. You can see some photos of my hex quilt here and here.
Jessee was nice enough to use her Silhouette to cut out the paper pieces ahead of time. She really makes me want to buy one with all the fun things you can do with it!
I made a pan of these snickers bar brownies for crafternoon (the perfect excuse to make crazy indulgent sweets because there will be lots of people over to eat them up) The only changes I made were I did not add hot fudge to the mix and I didn’t add any peanuts. I keep the finished brownies in the fridge before cutting them, and that was great, but you can see in the photo above that once they sat out cut for about ten minutes they melted down into piles of brownie mess. They tasted really good, and someone said they were more like cadbury egg brownies. I agree, especially with out the nuts, the nougat was very much like a cadbury egg. So, very delicious, very messy, and very time consuming to make so one time is plenty.

    Super cute! Btw, when I got to the picture of the brownies, I paused, and said “Ooh.”

    I want some.
