Just ate 2 slices of my Banana bread.
The best attempt so far.
I’m only calling it diabetic friendly because I replaced the sugar with sugar free apple sauce.
I also upped the flavorings and switched oil for butter.
The recipe is

2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
6 Tbsp melted butter
2 eggs
1 c sugar free apple sauce
2 Tbsp Vanilla
5 grossly over ripe bananas
1 c chopped walnuts

bake 350 degrees 60-65 min in a 9x5 loaf pan.
cool completely before cutting.

Speaking of baking and crafty stuff, I tried my hand at piping over the weekend for a bday cake. It's not my preferred decorating medium, but it was better for this project. I was rushing and the pot is a bit sloppy- lumps partly due to the buttercream flavor choice. All in all, still successful and the cake was tasty too. Chocolate cake, cookies and cream frosting and Oreo dirt.

These are my tired and faded Christmas porch swags. I decided to give them new life rather than pitch them and spend $$$ for new ones.

First, I repurposed some unbreakable ornaments that we no longer use on our trees. I removed the little finials from the top and then secured them with floral wire.

After arranging, rearranging and a lot of stepping back to assess the look, I finally came up with this plan and I wired all of the ornaments in place.

I purchased one roll of sparkly wired organza ribbon and made huge bows for each swag and voila! Brand new (sort of) swags for the staggering price of $15 for the ribbon on Amazon.

Gorgeous job! Brand new looking swags for a minimal $ investment -- good for you. Repurposing is rewarding!

Thanks! It's actually easy enough to follow a pattern. I know some people who can knit sweaters etc without using a pattern and they look amazing! I can't do that, it's like witchcraft to me 😂
I get that!!! There are some who can make clothes without even a sloper and just draw a pattern to cut on the actual fabric:eek: That said I almost understand how the knitters do it and it involves math. You take the finished garment measurements of what you want to make and figure out how many stitches and how many rows and go from there taking into account the amount of stitches to increase from the waist up through the body, figuring out where to cast off/decrease for the armhole. All that said they are geniuses, absolutely crazy or a combination of both

Well maths was never my strongest subject! Even with the patterns I regularly make mistakes that I have to go back and fix....
