Re-Stocking from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

After having packed and moved so much stuff, there are things I’ll never have to by again. Not really . . I don’t have a lifetime supply of anything except yarn and fabric. I have plenty of home canned meats and veggies. What I didn’t move was junk food/comfort food. I don’t keep a lot...

First, I am not an expert at food preservation. Second, if you’ve already read all there is to read about one method or another, and you’re happy with it, that’s your decision. If you’re happy . . I’m happy.

2 Quilts (one complex & one simple), What's Cookin'?, and Covid numbers from caledonia quilter

PLEASE NOTE THAT I ONLY HAVE A FEW OPEN SPOTS BEFORE CHRISTMAS - GET IN TOUCH SOON IF YOU WILL NEED QUILTING DONE.

Here's the complex quilt, with a medallion setting and a bunch of paper pieced sharks teeth.


And curved piecing.  Don't forget the curved piecing.

This quilt took me back in time.  When I was a kid, Mom had made me a skirt that I loved - dark grey with box pleats.  The inset in the box pleats was pink with a tiny black print.  I felt so sassy when I wore that...every step showed off the ...

Corn from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Some may consider this an “alarmist” post but I’m just sharing my thoughts – which is what I pretty much always do. If you’ve been watching the news or have friends in Iowa, you know they’ve suffered from a pretty devastating storm. In fact, Chad and his crew were on their way home from NY...

Food Preserving from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday Vince and I were talking and, since he never knew his grandparents, he didn’t grow up with a big garden and lots of canning going on, but we were wondering if, during the pandemic, a few more people have learned the value of keeping a bit of shelf stable food on hand. My guess...

Prepping – Prepper’s Mentality from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I am no expert but I’m simply sharing what has worked for us. It was March 8 that we decided things were getting to the point where we should make one last run to the grocery store. Then on April 1, we used curbside pickup to pick up a few groceries I had ordered online...

Prepping – Getting Started from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There are only a few serious rules that I think are super important with prepping. Others may have more or different rules but mine are this: Buy/store only what you love to eat. Figure out a way to “control” your food. You have to be able to use the oldest things first. Rotate your stash....

Prepping – The Basics from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ll begin every one of these with the note – I am not an expert. I’m fumbling through this coronavirus pandemic just like everyone else. We cannot change what we did prior to this but we can change how prepared we are for the next crisis, whether it be a pandemic, a war, an EMP,...

Prepping Thoughts from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

In the past, I’ve done a couple of series on prepping and why we do what we do. I think, with what we’ve all been dealing with, there’s no one who needs an explanation on why we do what we do. Vince and I have talked a lot about what we’ve learned the past three...

Heat & Eat Food from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The good thing about prepping for a storm, whether it hits or not, is that I won’t have to cook for for or five days. Yesterday I made Root Beer Pulled Pork in the pressure cooker. If our power stays on, I can make pulled pork quesadillas with the electric quesadilla maker. If the power...
