Post #595

Can't say I mind making dinner, when Thing 1 makes dessert -



Those are called Death By Oreo Cupcakes, and they are delish.  You can get the recipe HERE.
It doesn't say how many it makes - I believe we got 24 cupcakes.  However - it says to put a full-size oreo on the bottom of the cupcake liners, then fill with cake mix, and I personally did not care for the oreo on the bottom.  The boys liked them though.  If you leave the oreo on the bottom out, you may not get as many cupcakes.

Quilting has been going swimmingly, until I broke my needle!


There were a few moments of intense panic when I couldn't find the rest of it - I didn't move or breathe while I looked, and found the tip in my lap.  You can imagine the relief when I found it!

Back to quilting.....

Love,
Allie

One time I dropped a tiny quilting needle and I spent ages searching for it, it had bounced up and gone inside a small gap in my pillow cover (that I was leaning on!!) I was really pulling my hair out until I found it :/ !!

I know that looking for the needle tip panic -- I once had one end up inside the sewing machine.

Those cupcakes look divine, Allie!! I can empathize with your panic and relief over the broken needle.

Glad you found the tip of the needle someplace safe. I hope you had a replacement needle at the ready!

So glad you found the needle tip! Many times, I have hunted for a lost pin and sure know that panicky feeling. Those cupcakes look delicious!

Cupcake have a splendid aspect. I understand your panic with broken needle. It is dangerous. Fortunately, found :)

Kathy said...

That's a lot of hand quilting; no wonder you broke a needle! It's looking great :)

I never really got into oreos, just not my flavor but it looks good.
I know the feeling, whenever I break or lose it, I go on the hunt till I find it, have had one stuck in our feet a few times from that happening and with pets, I am more careful. I usually use my flashlight so it shines on the metal, usually they are in the rug;)

I'm glad you found your needle tip. Sometimes if you cant find a needle if you turn off the lights and shine a torch you'll see it reflecting the light. You're making great progress with your quilting, it must be because you're using oreo cakes for fuel.

I past up a piece of pie already....now you are tempting me with oreo??? Not fair.................:)

My broken needles frequently land IN the sewing machine ... or on the floor where I find them with my sock or bare feet. I don't do much stitching upstairs any more - when I did, there were always a pincushion's worth of needles "stored" in the carpet and in the cushions of the furniture. Ooops! I'll have one of those cupcakes please - and yes to the Oreo on the bottom, lol!

Jocelyn Thurston said...

Dessert looks divine, hand quilting looks divine, but a lost needle, yuck. Many's a time I've been on the floor with a flash light trying to spot a lost needle. Always a relief when found. Hazard of the trade, I'm afraid.

I'm so glad you found the rest of the needle. You know someone would have found it eventually. ;) The cupcake looks nice, but I'm one of 3 people in the world who doesn't like chocolate Oreos, though I adore chocolate. I'm thinking lemon Oreos would be great here. =)

Oh yum, Allie! I love how you call your son, Thing 1!! Cracked me up!!! We can get (very expensive) gluten-free Oreo-like-biscuits, so I might have a crack making a GF version. I'm not very good in the kitchen - wish I was - but alas, I find that so much time is spent there and then the food is consumed and it's like, well, what just happened there?! Hours spent in the sewing room equals something that lasts a bit longer. I have the wrong perspective on cooking, don't I?!!!! Love your blog header sweetie!! Such beautiful designs! Love your work! Have an awesome day, sweet friend! Vikki xoxoxo

Jeanne said...

I am familiar with the lost needle panic! Several years ago I had to go to emergency to have part of a needle removed from my leg. The cupcake looks delicious!

Karen said...

When I worked, I would bake a lot and take the treats in for my co-workers. The cupcakes would have been something I would have tried for sure. Nowadays, I would have to eat them all and bad that would be!
