Piecing - 2 Quilt Tops

No, these are will not be going into the same quilt top...
Just one of those days when you need 2 projects going at the same time...


A spring-inspired yellow quilt top I've started a little while back - piecing in the borders together.


...and a little star quilt I'm working on for someone special :)


Happy Sewing everyone!

Hello Spring!

Love this time of year (despite the mosquitos and allergies!).   There's a freshness in the air in the spring time - a little mix of morning dew, roses and lemon blossoms to be exact...at least in our yard :).  This year I started off with this little fun wreath project.  My first handmade wreath and I think I might be hooked...


I used a wire frame and wrapped burlap ribbon around there to hide the frame.  Then I loosely tied in more burlap ribbon with the cute little yellow ribbon I found in a $1 bin :).  


The peonies I found online - they are gorgeous aren't they?  I tied the peonies evenly around the wreath and topped it all off with a "W" metal sign I found at Michaels.  Looks great and perfect for a little pop of color.

Happy Spring everyone!

Quilting Progress

First off, I'm happy to say that I'm alive ;).  It's been rough/busy few months, hence to complete lack of blog postings, but I'm back and happy to share some new quilts.

Here are a few finished quilts, binded and ready for their photoshoot.  Something very peaceful and lovely about a stack of quilts :)


3 designs, 4 new quilts.  All ready for the shop very soon.

Weekend Breakfast Treat

Our kids LOVE doughnuts - particularly the ones at Krispy Kremes.  I think one of their favorite part of watching them make them.  So I thought - hey why not make some at home!  So I stumbled upon this little recipe here for copycat Krispy Kremes.


I made the dough the night before and used the morning as the final rising state for the dough - after shaping it with cookie cuts.  Then into the shortening fryer - be very careful about the temperature - shortening heats up very quickly and will burn your doughnuts instantly.


We made used both the doughnut part and the hole :).  Frying was super fast.


After frying, let it cool for a minute or so and keep it in your favorite topping.  We had plain sugar, glazed and glazed with sprinkles.

The verdict YUMMMM.
