Lucinda's awesome girl blocks.
Sarah and Molly Free Piecing Study block. This is my first flower block ever...I think. As usual I can't follow instructions and did mine a little different. I saw these AWESOME flowers by Colleen. I wanted to wonk mine up like hers, but I just couldn't make the wonk happen. It is a bit wonky, but not organic at all...I will have to piddle around with this style some more.
My study partner (Lucinda) was busy over the last couple months and sent me all these blocks while I was at the beach. Aren't they awesome??? I need to catch up big time. I need to do the tree (the pine one not the round one. The round one is one I did for LauraJ and I have been too busy to get my behind to the post office and mail it out.) another flower, some plus signs, a basket and a house. I love free piecing. It really gets me in the mood to QUILT ALL DAY!!!!! If you have been kinda hesitant to break out of your quilting routine this free piecing study is a great place to start.
This guy really missed us while we were away. I kept tripping over things on my trips back and forth from the Iron and I finally looked down and saw all his toys at my feet. Poor guy wanted to go out for some fetch. Everyone should have a Lab this awesome. Needless to say, I called it a day. I went out to toss the ball with him and then hung out in the kitchen with my husband while he made a wonderful bacon cream sauce for our pasta. Let me jot down the recipe really quick because it was so simple and so wonderful. This is our go to pasta sauce when the fridge is mostly empty because it is not shopping day yet and the kids are hungry.
Stu's Great Pasta Sauce
- About 5 pieces of bacon sliced up into half inch pices.
- 2 small scallions chopped up
- 1 big can of whole peeled tomatoes squished up
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 table spoons of Heavy cream
OK, now I am going to get on with my day. I hope you guys have a great day too!!!
