Boutique Work Day

As some of you know, my SIL and I are the co chairs for the Boutique at our upcoming quilt show. The Boutique is where we will sell items that have been made and donated by our members. In an effort to have as many items as possible, we had a work day after our January meeting last week. The following link will take you to a slide show of some photos of the day. We had 7 stations of ladies working on various projects including, baby bibs, magnets, Snippets grab bags, baby pillows, appliqued onesies and burp cloths, stamping shopping bags and tags and using the Accuquilt to die cut shapes to sell. When I got home and laid out everything that had been accomplished, I was blown away! Great job ladies and thank you so much for your help!

What's for Dinner?

PW's Whiskey BBQ Sliders, that's what! For the second time this January, I might add. That's quite a testament to their fabulousness. You can get in on the action here, I also made the Deen Brothers Pea Salad to go along with them, I didn't have whiskey so I used beef broth in the slider sauce and it turned out just as good. I also used King's Hawaiian Honey Wheat Dinner Rolls for the slider buns-YUM-O!! I highly recommend both recipes as they are extremely easy and very people pleasing.

If you haven't already discovered, I hope you will check it out. If you have already discovered it, you know what a great resource it is for ideas. They posted one this past week that I will definitely be trying, A pretty quilted case for your glasses and it has a carbiner to hook it onto your purse-brilliant! As I get older, my purses get bigger and bigger and it gets more and more difficult to locate things in the depths of the abyss. Not to mention differentiating between eyeglass and sun glass cases! This is a stylish way to solve that problem. Now, to decide what fabric to use ;)

Sick at Christmas

Yep, I was. And for the last week, HD has been under the weather. We hardly ever get sick so we don't do "sick" very well. We have a hard time with the whole, "get some rest and take it easy" thing. The fact that I had 2 pans of PW's Cinnamon Rolls, with which to medicate myself was a big factor in my recovery! I did get a chance to finish a couple of knitting projects, pics will be up soon! We also managed to see 3 movies. Beginning with our favorite, they are The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Warhorse, and Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol. Now that January is here, I am back to work and my SIL and I are in full swing working on our club's quilt show which will be in February.

I hope you all had great holidays and are ready for a fantastic 2012!
