There's THREE!!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Super busy day at work so very glad that dinner in the form of the lasagna was ready to go.

Out the door to my son's extracurricular activities then back home for the mundane of get ready for tomorrow and homework etc.

Over the Christmas vacation I had the insight to go through my scrap bags and prep some of the smaller pieces for the three scrap projects I am currently working on.  For a quick "sew" relaxing moment I made Block 3 of the 52 Week Block Challenge hosted by A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop:

TAH DAH!!!

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the 
BEST Tuesday EVER!!!

BEST Day EVER Sunday!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Doggie woke me up at regular time to go for a walk....apparently he did not receive the memo that it was THE weekend.

After returning home I decided that I would make French Toast for breakfast and use the fresh raspberries I had in the fridge from earlier this week:

Delicious of course, but this innocent breakfast is responsible for almost everything that happened after.

I used the last pieces of bread to make the French Toast and that meant I needed to make bread:

Dough rising in the sun beam looked so awesome.

Additionally, while I had been getting the raspberries out of the fridge I also remembered the 5 lb bag of beets that I had purchased at the same time as the raspberries because the beets were TOO good a deal.  So.....out came the food processor portion of the Kitchenaid and 5 lbs of beets and 2 lbs of carrots became:

Added some freezer peas,onions, some of the dill I dried last summer and Borscht soup for lunch was a GO!

Bread was baked and turned out FABULOUS.  Doggie was sitting in front of the oven door as usual waiting for it to be done so he could get the heels.  He did of course and was super happy:

Nothing tastes better than fresh bread in my opinion.

The Resident Cookie Monster had also mentioned as I was getting underway with all my baking/cooking projects today that the cookie jar was nearing empty!!!   Horror.  Well.....crisis was averted as I made Sea Salt Caramel Chip Cookies from a package of chips I had in the pantry:

These are pretty tasty!!!  You can try to eat just one......But......

Back to the refrigerator where I took out a zucchini, a red, yellow, and green pepper along with some spinach that was all going to need to be used up this week.  I decided that lasagna for dinner would take care of all of these vegetables and so that is what I made:

This should get us through dinners at least part of the week as it is a five day work week for me and a five day school week for kiddo.  On top of that all extracurricular activities will be resumed this week.  

While all of this baking and cooking was going on I also did an amazing amount of house cleaning!  Everything is washed, vacuumed, polished, scrubbed, and cleaned in some form.  The house looks and smells like HOME which is great because it was three months ago today that we spent our first night in our new home.  🏡

So.........a GREAT day thanks to doggie not getting the weekend notice memo.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the
BEST Day EVER Monday tomorrow.

Almost out of the Teen's.....Quiltwise...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

This weekend I was privileged to be asked by a friend if I wanted to participate in their Gal Pal creative weekend.  Of course I agreed.

We started the evening by attending the Grand Opening of Gather Textiles.  Learned lots about weaving and of course everyone knows how I love yarn so this was a LOT of fun. 

Arriving back I decided that I would do a bit of sewing to be somewhat creatively productive and made Block 19 of 52 for the 52 Week Red and White Block Challenge hosted by A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop:

TAH DAH!!!

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the
BEST Day EVER Saturday.  🎉

Five Geese

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Posting a little late and so it is almost Good Morning🌅.

I was able to attend my Quilt Guild Meeting this evening.  First time since the September meeting due to extra curricular activities that my son participates in.  Nice to catch up with some people.  

When I got home I did all the "mom" things I had not done earlier in the evening.   While I waited for a load of laundry to hurry up and wash so I could put it in the dryer and head to bed I decided to make another of the Flock of Geese from my pre cut bag of scraps:

TAH DAH!!!  Now I have 5 of the 52 Flock of Geese Blocks for the A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop 52 Week Block Challenge 2017 (not a typo.....I am just that slooooooooow).  

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the 
BEST Day EVER Friday.
