Sew we Gathered!

 We had our Sew we gather meet on Sunday! What fun!

What food! I made a batch of Southwestern Egg-rolls by Valerie Bertinelli. OMG, they were a hit! The egg rolls below are uncooked and once they were cooked, everyone wanted to try them ... totally forgot to take a picture. The homemade salsa was amazing too!

You can find the recipe Southwestern Egg-Rolls with Salsa Dipping Sauce here.

The Shoppe Troll likes to use us as guinea pigs and tries new cheesecake recipes on us. This time she made a Cinnamon bun cheese cake. 

Took one for the team and lived to tell about it! lol OMG, it was delish!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we are working with Kim Diehl's new book Simple Whatnots II

Our first project was Hickory Dickory ... Here is my version:

I love how it turned out ... I'm a scrappy kind of gal!

We've already picked out next project ... Double Dutch Star. Our next meet is in September! Plenty of time to work on it!

Thank for stopping by. Catch you all later!

We're back in action ....

 Now that most of my friends feel a certain level of comfort being together in a closed area, we have resumed our ...

I think it's safe to say that most of us have had our life on hold during the pandemic. I certainly have ... I feel I've done more sitting on the couch during that time than I have in my whole life! lol

To get motivated and accountable ... OK, to get us out of a creative slum, we decided that we would work on projects from Kim Diehl's newest book Simple Whatnots II.

Our first project is Hickory Dickory. The quilt measures 18.5" x 22.5" ... I've been busy cutting/trimming away ... 

Such small pieces ... but oh so worth it. I love small quilts, don't you?

In the meantime, I decided that I wanted to enjoy my back porch more this summer. The issue was the sun, my porch is fully exposed and it faces west. Not against the sun ... Love the sun, but shade is such a beautiful thing.

I'm enjoying my new parasol. I can sit out in the middle of the day without getting fried. Such a beautiful thing! lol

AND ... my quilting groove is back on .... stay tune ... I'm back in business!

Catch you all later! Cheers!
