She's all done, and I'm so in love with this perfectly imperfect quilt of mine. I will never part with it and I don't think there would be enough money in this world that I would find enough to buy it.
Sewed the binding on and then wrapped myself in all it's glory.
Oh I love it. Every imperfection, every little snag, missed stitch or not so perfectly straight line just makes me smile.
I've wanted to make a quilt for so many years, so this is a major accomplishment, definitely one thing off my bucket list.
And now I'm addicted and I'm finding myself looking at fabric in a whole new way. So I dug through my stash or scraps and started two small little quilts for my pug girls, just something for them to lay on when they're on the couch :)
Oh ladies, the quilting bug has bitten and very hard. I would ask if there's a way out of this but I am afraid I know the answer to that. Hahaha
I am so completely in love with my new Amish cookbooks, goodness, if you could only see the amazing recipes, and every single one is delicious and filling and using the simplest of ingredients.
I'm trying out Ruth's Donuts for breakfast tomorrow and I picked this specific recipe because you can keep the dough in the refrigerator for up to a week. So I made it this afternoon and it's been in the fridge waiting for the morning when I'll fry them up and glaze them.....
It is expanding like crazy though, wow.
Went ahead and popped dinner into the oven as well.....
Ella's Beef Casserole for dinner, I will have the recipe up for you all tomorrow. There was nothing left of this, nothing....the kids even had seconds, they loved it that much and I will say that it was very tasty and I'll be making it again.
Sat around the table and chatted, most of the conversation was about going back to Idaho, what we want in a house, what we'll do etc.
It's nice to sit as a family and to talk about these things, to listen to everyone's ideas and dreams.
Don't discount your children's voices just because they're not old enough to make decisions.
They are as much a part of our family as my husband and I, and we really like including them in some things and letting them know that we appreciate them and their opinions ARE important to us :)
I'm going to sit down and enjoy a cup of salted caramel mocha coffee and go visit your blogs, say hi, see what you've been up to.
