Vinegar Chicken & Risotto from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today’s meal was the leftover vinegar chicken and I was thinking about it all day. It’s so good. I didn’t really want pasta with it again so I made a spinach risotto. It was a nice change from pasta. Add the leftover chicken and veggies and it was a meal that I think will be...

Christmas Beading 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Back to my stash of designs which have been in storage like the Christmas decorations, but then the second available design needed some work … just like some of the decorations when they come out of storage.

Now it looks more like the fireworks of new years eve instead of Christmas …

… but I love it!

Needs some quilting though!

Next year’s project perhaps!

It's Evident that.... from Just Ramblin'

...I love snowmen.  If you look around my home, you will see snowmen in almost every room, from ornaments, to pillows, to wall hangings, to figurines.
It seems that every year I add another snowman project to my list of things to made or do.  So today I thought I'd share a few of my snowmen projects:

This was also made for neighbor gifts


Pillows for my son and daughter

This snowman mini quit was a "project a month" block from my local quilt shop

This little guy was so fun that I made one for my daughter also ...

Saturday Sparks Link Party 353 from Pieced Pastimes

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 353! Starting off todays party with some thoughts on Christmas lights. In my mind, the reflection of the lights sets the mood for the season. They create an aura that brings with it a sense of peace. Whether using simple white or fun multi-colored lights, the spirit of the season takes hold. "Mankind is great, an immense family. This is proved by what

Friday the Thirteenth from Nestlings By Robin

Are you superstitious?
I guess we all are in some ways
but this date doesn't bother me.

It was an all around lovely 
day with my husband.
We did some Christmas shopping,
ate at a new-to-us restaurant
in Dunedin, The Hono.
It is a Hawaiian themed restaurant 
and the food was delicious!!!
The pork was pull apart moist 
and the spicy sauce did not disappoint.
We picked up a few groceries
and headed home where I 
proceeded to work on a few of
those Christmas gifts that are
still in parts.
I know none of you have 
that problem ...

Upcoming Retreat Feb 23-28 2020 Pacific Grove from Melinda's Cutting Garden



Have you ever wanted to learn how I do this kind of art quilting? Or should I say painting? Actually, there is no paint used on any of my quilts to create these flowers - it's just luscious fabrics like batiks, hand-dyes and mono-colored prints . I have an independent study class February 23-28, 2020 at Empty Spools Seminars. February is a great time to visit the beautiful beaches in central California, so fly right into nearby Monterey and get out of the cold.


This quilt started out with a photo for inspiration. I took this photo in ...

HAPPY SCRAPPERS MAKERS from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Chris had some fun projects for us when the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Wednesday.  Above, Terri shows us this adorable wreath mug mat that she made.
I made one too.  
I also made a snap bag.
And this cute little jar lid opener.  I folded down the top so you can see the Non-Slip Shelf Liner that is on the back to help grip that lid when you are trying to open something.  Great gift!
Janalee worked on her Garden Sampler BOM.  So cute!
Cathy (hiding behind the quilt) finished a small ...

December is kicking it! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


I am not keeping up with my crazy life. Here's a quick catch-up of the happenings since our return from Disney, starting with a fam photo (above) of the one day that we wore our WDW shirts, which I made using the Silhouette and heat press.


Two days after Disney, we held the Cotton Quilter's Guild Christmas party. As Madam President, I was in charge one last time, but Margaret (our incoming pres) was generous enough to take care of the food and details. Thanks, Maggie!  



Maggie is on the left here. Thanks girl!

We got back on ...

Tackling the UFO Pile from Desert Bloom Quilting

This year has been a healing year. A year where I truly stepped back and looked at different aspects of my life and really worked to figure out what was important to me. A lot of things happened over the last few years (job loss, cancer in my immediate family, child care struggles) that exposed a lot of cracks, and pushed me to look at life and my goals in a whole new way. To be healthy, it forced me to slow down and choose to direct my energy at the things that were really important to me.

One of ...

Frolic Clue 2 & the Jeep from Little Bits and Pieces

I did get my Frolic clue #2 done quickly last week.  I finished it on Sunday.
It was great as it super easy.

This week's clue will be more labor intensive. It will be more of a challenge.

We did have a little adventure.  We decided that we did not need two trucks. Bruce had one and I still had Mark's work truck. We decided to sell Mark's truck and eventually get a jeep.  Well, the day the truck was sold, Bruce found a jeep.

And this is where the adventure begins. We are in California and ...
