Alabama Quilt Sneak Peak

I have been meeting with my friend Brenda from church almost every Monday evening after work to help her make an Alabama themed quilt. The are some machine appliqued blocks in the quilt. 24 to be exact. We have spent many hours on them. I told her last night that if anyone asked how much it cost to make them one to tell them $500. 😁 We started sewing the sashing to the quilt blocks last night. This is a sneak peak.

Pinterest Recipe Success

Ham and Cheese Party Roll Ups

I was searching my Pinterest board of recipes for something easy to make. With a house full of boys it is hard to find something everyone will like. I'd give this a 3 out of 5 star rating because 3 of us loved it and 2 didn't. I loved it and think most of my friends would as well. It is definitely a ladies brunch or church gathering dish.

The recipe called for Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. I had neither. I used yellow mustard and 1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar instead. It turned out great. They could of cooked for 2 to three minutes longer.

DIY Coaster Tutorials

I always have good intentions of making gifts for everyone for birthdays or Christmas. However life seems to keep my ADD mind going in 20 directions. I was pondering what types of gifts to make that would be easy, not require a lot of time, and be cost effective. Drink coasters seemed to fit in all of those categories. A quick Pinterest search produced a ton of pins. These are the ones I am toying with making.

Printable Grocery List

This grocery list has just about every thing on it. It is a great find. I like being able to high light the items I need to buy on the grocery list. Then check them off as I shop. There are blank lines to add items that aren't on the grocery list.

Blue Power Ranger Applique Design

I created this blue power ranger applique design for my youngest son Andrew. He recently turned 5 and thanks to Netflix is obsessed with the power rangers. I am new to applique designing and hit a few snags here and there. I noticed a few changes that needed to be made after the first stitch out. It is a learning process for sure. I bought the Embird program for editing, digitizing, and converting applique designs last May. It isn't very user friendly for beginners. I have learned a lot over the last year through trial and error and with a little help from You Tube. After I stitched out the blue power ranger applique design I realized that the symbol color was wrong. It should be black with a white outline. Thankfully he is only 5 and wasn't bothered by this blunder.
