Things have been busy around here. This weekend I was working on the quilt I started a few weeks ago. I had finished sewing on the spinning stars and was ready for the next step.
Instructions for spinning stars.
Take two pieces of fabric (right sides together) and sew along the dotted lines of paper. Then cut on the solid lines…
After removing all the paper from the 1024 half square triangles, pressing them open and some time (lots of time) piecing the blocks together, they are ready to take their place.
Here is what it looked like on the design wall today. There were a few blocks missing. "Eaten" by the dogs... sewing machine feed dogs. 🙂
On Sunday Paul and I went to Joyce, Brett and BB’s house. BB is their bird aka Bilbo Baggins.
BB was on his best behavior and quite entertaining.
BB likes to give kisses
We had lots of fun eating and chatting. Joyce made a delicious chicken and shrimp coconut milk dish.
And I made dessert.
Raspberry Summer Sensation from Kraftfoods.com (recipe below)
Look what we got…
Maple syrup from their recent travels to Minnesota.
(It was delicious on the pancakes Paul made the next day)
And after some fun recipe conversations
A bottle of Vodka to make Vanilla. This is day one after adding the vanilla beans.
Thank you Joyce and Brett for the wonderful goodies. I look forward to sharing the vanilla. Paul said it should be ready in October.
Well, I am off to make some cupcakes for someones birthday celebration tomorrow. Pictures to come soon.
