Link Party No.64 / Thou Shalt Not Stay Up Too Late

Don't forget about the giveaway on my Sponsors' page by Lily Bird Studio.

Most of the times, the only time I can work on things (sewing and such) are at night after the kids are in bed. I try to do things during the day, but there is always something that needs my attention and I end up getting frustrated, so it's not worth it to even try.

Tonight, I came home from a church function around 8:50, tucked the kids in bed, straightened up the downstairs then I finally started working on my project. I was trying to design a quilt, and I was thinking about what to do and how many pieces to cut...

Then, this thought kept coming to me... I NEED CHOCOLATE... and the thought did not go away.

I scavenged through my pantry and decided to make chocolate muffins, but it didn't end there. When they came out of the oven, I heard another really seductive voice inside of my head..."Wouldn't it be taste better with freshly whipped cream and some drizzled chocolate and sliced strawberries?..."

So, I ended up with this in the end.

It was good, but what's bad is that I had two of them. Ahhhh...!
I must confess, because I stay up late all the time to work on things, I eat fourth meal at night. I know if I stop doing that I would probably lose the last 10 lbs. of my pregnancy weight (which I’ve carried around for so many years).

But, it was so yummy...

Ok, what have you been working on? Please share with everybody!

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.

  7. Nat,

    Yes I do! I'm just really good at hiding it.

  8. Last week I made myself an apron to wear when I'm doing craft fairs. I made it from a recycled denim flaired skirt and I'm so happy with how it turned out! You can see pictures of it in my blog post about it:

    I just found your blog earlier this week and really love it. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I know that feeling!! I had to make Martha Stewart's Devil's Food Cupcake the other night. My other favorite emergency chocolate recipe is

    Emergency Chocolate Cake from Mrs Harding Cooks
    2 Tbs cake flour (or regular...)
    2 Tbs sugar
    2 rounded tsp cocoa powder
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    a pinch of salt
    2 Tbs milk
    2 tsp oil
    1/2 tsp vanilla

    Coat the inside of a mug with nonstick cooking spray. Put all ingredients in mug and stir with a fork until smooth. You can also stir in chocolate chips, nuts or anything else your heart desires. Microwave for 1 minute. Allow to cool a little before eating! If you're feeling crazy you could top it with a spoonful of peanut butter (which melts delectably on the warm cake) or maybe some ice cream.

    I should blog about it sometime. . . .

  10. Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!!!
