Newest Cross Stitch Pattern

My latest pattern was a lot of fun to make. I found a fun and brightly colored Victorian Easter greeting card and edited it for a wonderful new spring bunny project! Check out the Etsy listing here!

Food Contest

I've decided to enter my first-ever food contest! I entered my Loaded 2-Potato Leek Soup to betterrecipes.com's weekly contest, which is affiliated with Better Homes & Gardens magazine. Grand prize is $250. The prize would be nice, but I'm honestly just doing it to get my feet wet. I've discovered tons of contests online and have been flirting with the idea of entering items into the Iowa State Fair this year which, I believe, has the largest food competition category of all the states. Here's a link to the recipe/contest.
