What I Got in the Mail

I need a Christmas Tree Skirt! I saw this Thomas Kinkade panel and order it on line. Don’t you love shopping on line? I have been organizing and refolding my fabrics. It’s fun!
I also got Thomas Kinkade Cottage Double Border. I didn’t decide what I will use it on. My brother in law said it will look good on Christmas quilt, I think I might have time for that! 🙂
I needed more of this pretty fabric for the borders on my Purple and Green Star Quilt.
It has been so cold lately that it feels more like a Winter then Fall! I should get to work and finish the coffee quilt for the winter! I am thinking even using a flannel backing 🙂
Happy Stitching!

Phillies World Cup Champions

Congratulations Phillies 2008 World Series Champions!

The last cup they won was 1980! Some people believed there was a curse! I guess it;s lifted now! Today there is a big parade in Philadelphia – around 2 million people!

I was lucky to be at their game this year and last year! I really like going to the ball park! Congratulations Phillies!

For Dinner Try: HulaJoes

I was inspired by Rachael Ray’s turn on “Sloppy Joe”. Here is a link to her recipe for Hula Joes. It’s a pretty laid back dinner, I used paper plates too.
I alternated the recipe by adding some veggies: onions, carrots and celery. I saute them and put aside.
Brown the beef or I used Meatloaf mix. I used Manwich sauce, but Rachael Ray make her own by combining tomato sauce, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar.
Add some cubed pineapple. Combine everything and heat it through. I served it over toasted rolls.
Works great for leftovers, too!
Bon Apetit!

Purple and Green Star Quilt

I am participating in Judy Laquidara Star BOM. I like that she gives you the two blocks a month. It is a very cute pattern! I actually missed the first 3 blocks, but I think I can figure them out. These are the fabrics I am using… 🙂 It started with a small bundle of fat quarters I got from my mother in law and I really loved it. I am going to make scrappy looking stars and using the same white background. Most of the fabrics are from Timeless Treasures, Fleur collection.
I am going to post the first block I finished! Stay tuned…….

This is the progress Scot and I made this weekend on our Guest Bedroom….we install almost half of the floor. Before that we had to prime and paint the ceiling, walls and all the trimmings. The painting was a pain since we were painting over wood panels and they had all these grooves.
The paint color is called Blueberries and Cream, it reminds me of a candy! Now I have to make a quilt…….wait I think I have been collecting the perfect fabrics for that 🙂
To be continued….
