Friday check in: under the needle and a tasty treat

 Thank you for your guesses / votes about the rainbow geese layout.  Here is a sneak peek.  Come back Monday morning to see the final arrangement.    

I'm using two vintage prints for the backing, along with insert strips from a contemporary fabric.

It's Purim (last evening through this evening).   My hamantaschen get more triangular with each batch.  I have a tendency to put too much filling on each round so they lose their shape.  I used the recipe on the Solo label--essentially a short, not-very-sweet cookie (2 sticks of butter and 3/4 c sugar). 

It occurred to me that hamantaschen would be a good technical challenge for the Great British Baking Show.  I'm not the only one who thought that -- this post is a hoot!

Don’t know how I’ll wait until Monday for the reveal! Cookies look tasty regardless of shape! Better too much filling than not enough! Thanks for the GBBO take off! Have a good weekend!
