Wednesday, I think I have the sewing done!

     I have a tendency to put off hard stuff.  I thought I had just a few things to alter yesterday, but they were all hard!  Like trench coats that needed hemmed.  With lots of lining and seams and pleats. Yuck!  Then coats that needed the sleeves shortened. Heavy winter parka's that have linings.  It turned out that I had to sew until 6:30 last night to get everything done.  But I will make $286.00.  I really don't need the money right now, but I had promised the items before Christmas.

     I then went to clean the bank and ran to Wal-Mart. I got  phone call from a woman at church she was in hysterics trying to finish a large denim quilt for one of her children.  She had already made 2 of them and she could not get the last one to sew straight.  I told her I would meet her in 30 minutes at my shop.  Well she was using a heavy duty hand quilting thread in her cheap machine a big no no.  She had the timing all thrown off.  The machine was very mad at her.  So I helped her finish her quilt then at 10:30 we made fudge.

The easiest fudge you will ever make!

1 lb of cream cheese (do not use an off brand or low-fat)
1 cube butter (do not use margarine)
2 tsp of vanilla
dash salt
1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered cocoa
Melt cream cheese and butter until it is soft then mix with mixer add above ingredients until it is shiny and smooth,

 Now add 2 lbs of powder sugar, Yes 2 lbs.  Knead when your mixer starts to moan.  Add nuts if you wish press into a pan.  Refrigerate.  The best fudge you will ever eat.  No stirring,no sugaring, no burning.

I have to get to the store for coconut, and a few items I forgot.

Have a great and productive day!
