I made cookies!

I made cookies!  Still didn't have enough time to dip them in chocolate so I did that part at my friends house and I didn't take a picture of the plate and really out of 8 pics on my camera only 2 were of our stitching night and the rest making cookies.  I never bake or cook anything unless it's a box mix so I was rather proud of making dough and baking cookies that took 2hrs. 
Then at work today we had a training on a new system we're going to be using and that was from 2-4:30.  I had all ready asked off for 5:30 and the training in the middle of lunch I asked my boss so they said I could move my lunch to 5.  Ended up we didn't get out until after 4:30 and by the time I got downstairs there was 10 min left and by the time everything got up my sup told me not to worry about it.  So I stood at the desk while some people went over the new pay scale that's rolling out March 3rd.  Yes lots of new changes at work :p  The new pay will be good for me but my friend looked at it and she doesn't think it will be good for her.
Craftyness today was done at my stitching night with friends and I stitched some more on the Love Quilt Square.  Tomorrow I'll work on the ferret and maybe Saturday I'll start on the big project or get something done on the Dragon.  Feb 20th is when my Granny passed away last year and I think I want to start my Monopoly Stitch.  I'll need to find some game board pieces to stitch on there though my board won't be to scale.  I bought 14 count fabric instead of 18.  I'll do a quick check in the stores but I think 14 Aida is what they normally had.  I hope everyone has a nice hermit and stitch weekend.
