I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Are you Ready for Labor Day 07?

Labor day is one of the most obscure holidays. Labor Day is a United States federal holiday that takes place on the first Monday in September. The holiday began in 1882, originating from a desire by the Central Labor Union to create a day off for the "working man". It is still celebrated mainly as a day of rest and marks the symbolic end of summer for many. Labor Day became a national holiday by Act of Congress in 1894

For this weekend I will be Baking which is one of my favorite pastimes besides knitting and crochet. It is all homemade . Upper left butter cream sugar free frosting, homemade no sugar added raspberry jam, sugar free chocolate cake covered with the frosting and some jam. Lower left is the preparation of the layers .

In the lower middle you have the triple Decker getting ready to be completely frosted. I shaved some bittersweet chocolate and sprinkled it on the butter cream frosting. It is delicious and I am looking forward to having a slice before Labor day. I am hoping that this gets you to make yourself a cake. Enjoy Thanks for stopping by!
