Queen of Macaroons plus Exercise Charts

My cousin makes the world's greatest chocolate chip macaroons. She always serves them at Passover since they have no flour as an ingredient. I've made the recipe a couple of times, but mine never turn out as perfect as hers. Luckily, the ingredients are all so yummy that everyone gobbles them up anyway. In honor of my cousin's upcoming birthday, I made this oh so appropriate card from a design by the fabulous Bé Courtadet. This is the "Queen of Macaroons", one of several of her sweet ladies decked out in dessert-shaped dresses. Worked out nicely on this peach butter linen from Vikki Clayton.



Last Saturday, my Jazzercise class held a fund raiser for the 'Back in the Swing' organization, a group that works with breast cancer surviors. I decided to give the two little exercise magnets I made to the two cancer survivors in our class. What I didn't realize is that we had a couple more survivors that I didn't know about. So back to the drawing board. Since I knew these were for breast cancer survivors, I added the pink ribbon. And the runner was specifically for the marathon runner.




And for your stitching pleasure if you are interested, here are the charts:
