Sunday Funday!!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today of course was get ready for the week ahead.

Part of my undertakings today were to raid the freezer!

First off I took out ground bison and pumpkin and made Bison Pumpkin Bolognese:
This will end up in kiddo's thermos this week for hot lunch☺

Next up was frozen cranberries that I made Cranberry Oatmeal Bars with.  I even took some of these over for the neighbors:

This evening after dinner I spent a wee bit of time in my craft room and made Block 15 of the 52 Week Block Challenge hosted by A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop:

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the
BEST Day EVER MondayπŸŽ‰

Look Closely.....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Okay, seriously.....you do have to look closely....the largest piece of fabric in here is 2.5" square!!!

I LOVE the colors and how this block went together.  Since I am pretty frugal with my cutting I am going to see if I can make another three of these and turn them in to place mats for the dinner table!!


This is one of the blocks from the Simple Whatnots Club 8.  I believe this block was a bonus block. 

This is about the extent of my day. 

Kiddo and I did take doggie out to the hay field close to our house and we launched balls for close to an hour.  Kiddo and dog were both tired after that!

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

Full Steam Ahead...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well.......This evening was Full Steam Ahead as I not only sewed on my latest red and white row; I also made another red and white block to start the next row!!!

I am LOVING this quilt.  I am thinking that I may end up making this larger than the 52 blocks as I think this quilt in a large enough size to cover my bed with some drape down the sides will look FANTASTIC!!!!

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you the
BEST Friday EVER!!!πŸŽ‰

You Bought What????

Good Evening Internet Friends!

If you follow my blog (which of course who wouldn't), you will likely know that I have a philosophy that if you cannot buy something at Costco you should question if you really need the item!

While there last week I came across an entire bag of Eggplant!!!  Seriously.  Well.....I could NOT leave that behind.  So this evening when I got home from work I set about making Eggplant Parmesan for Dinner.  Yes, ALL the ingredients in this dish and for all of dinner are from Costco:


Eggplant Parmesan, Brioche Bun, Fresh Green Beans Steamed, and Pan Seared Steak with Butter Balsamic Vinaigrette Sauce!!!  So YUMMY!

Then it was off to a prayer Vigil for a long time family friend's Father in Law.

When we returned home I sewed all of the red and white blocks I currently have together and made another row!

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the 
BEST Thursday EVER πŸŽ‰

ANOTHER ONE!!!

GOOD EVENING Internet Friends!

As you can tell by the time of this posting this has been a LOOOOOOONG week somehow and it is only Tuesday.

Thankfully there were left overs for dinner.

Despite the time of day I decided that I would still take a few minutes of ME Time aka Self Care and do a bit of quilting because it makes me happy.

Here is the latest Red and White Block for the 2018 52 Week Block Challenge!

Hope this inspires your own creativity and wishing you all the 
BEST Wednesday EVER!!πŸŽ‰

Stars In My Eyes....

Good Evening Internet Friends!!

Okay, seriously though.....I DO have stars in my eyes right now.  I (yes me) managed to somehow slip on the smallest wet patch on the trail this evening while out for a run with the DOG!!!

Feeling a little better now (albeit sore already) "sew" I decided to put together another of the Twisted Star Blocks:

TAH DAH!!!

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