Why so late? Am I talking about this update, or Spring??
Both. Yesterday was my annual eye exam, where my eyes get dilated, so I can't be on the computer. And on the way there, I saw some snow flurries. SNOW! This is not very Spring-like, March. Two weekends ago it was 75 (F), and yesterday the high was 50 (F). We are not amused.
My ophthalmologist, however, WAS amused when I told him what I'd done the night before so that I could spend my non-computer time cooking:
This recipe is absolutely amazing, but took me FOREVER, AND I had made the pastry for the tops the day before!
I had much more baking success over the weekend when I made the second recipe from this month's Cookie A Sock Club, fig bars.
Here's the recipe in case you missed it.
And lest you think this is turning into a cooking blog (ha! not a chance unless I'm suddenly unemployed), here is what the Sparkly Compote of Decree has been offering up for March Madness...on Friday, it was a class I took a loooong time ago (notice a theme?), Tenerife Lace Wheel.
On Sunday, the SCOD offered up another blank slip! (It likes me, it really likes me!) I did the most responsible thing I could think of with my SCOD-granted freedom and worked on the only remaining stitching on Chocolat (yet another class piece).
Obviously, last night I could not work on much of anything, although I did knit on my Honey Cowl that's been languishing. I didn't need to be able to see to knit on it! Hmmm...I hope I don't find any major mistakes later....

If you can't see a mistake, is it really there?
