Gift package............

A package came Thursday evening and it said to open immediately.  Further instructions inside said to refrigerate it and to consume with 48 hours of receiving it.



They are delicious!











There was a second box in the package.










This one is Truffles!











Yesterday I had a out of state visitor.  She comes once a year at Christmas and we caught up on the year's happenings and went to lunch.  

Last night I needed to cut into the strips I showed yesterday and "make scraps".
I cut 4 layers at a time.  I needed both strips and center chunks.








I cut 2 sizes of both and then made another 4 blocks.  I have 32 blocks done and 2 started.  I was going to put them up on the design wall but decided it was too late so I'll maybe do that today.


I noticed that the white cactus on the top shelf of the baker's rack is blooming.  Now I'm guaranteed some blooms on Christmas day.

I see those commercials and wish someone would think of me. Nice to know they are as good as they look.

The chocolate looks delicious and your fabric cuts are intriguing. How wonderful that your cactus will bloom on time.

Sheri's Berries are delicious, we have been gifted a box a few years ago and I still remember how good they were . Happy you received a box, you deserve a nice treat. Your red batik is so pretty. Anxious to see what you will be making with your pieces. And another lovely catus blossom and white yet. Bloomed especially for a white Christmas.
