2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / David's Legacy on: October 06, 2019 05:45:38 PM
Back in April a dear friend of mine (Darryl) lost his husband (David) rather suddenly.  A couple months after his passing he reached out to me to see if I would make him and his mom a quilt from his old button down shirts. I got about 100 shirts and made 2 quilts, one in black tones, one in blue. I wanted to showcase the shirts so they are quite simple 9 inch squares sewn in 10 rows of 9. I've named them David's Legacy. Cant wait to give it to him Smiley

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / On Sundays We COOK! on: September 30, 2019 08:50:13 AM
I hate football, like, with a passion.  I love all other sports but football gets me so angry I can't even watch it anymore (my opinion is they should score every time they have possession-TOTALLY unrealistic but I love high scoring sports)
SO on Sundays I resign myself to the kitchen (much to my family's pleasure)
First up we have bacon wrapped krab
Super simple appetizer
1-34 oz. package imitation krab meat
1-16 oz. pack of bacon (regular cut, not thick)
brown sugar (maybe 2 tbsp.)
Separate krab meat and cut bacon into thirds.  Wrap each piece of meat in bacon and place on baking sheet.  Sprinkle very lightly with brown sugar. Bake at 425 for 45 minutes. Serve as is or with Hollandaise sauce

Next we had to have dessert, bring on the stroopwafels!  A delightful Dutch treat and I just happened to have this waffle maker in my closet for YEARS and had no idea what to make with it:

I used this Pinterest recipe and it was sooooooo tasty!!!
The finished product:
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 3 lil punkins on: September 26, 2019 06:56:28 PM
I feel like that should be the start of a nursery rhyme!
I'm apparently really bad at math and following directions because I swear these are the same pattern worked the same way. All 3 came out different. Oh well, pumpkins are like snowflakes, no 2 are the same
5  COOKING / Dessert / Hurricane cake! on: August 29, 2019 06:49:44 PM
No hurricane party would be complete without cake!
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hexagon Bag on: August 22, 2019 03:43:07 PM
I used this amazing pattern:
to make this for the Vintage Halloween Swap

I got the handles for a steal!  (FIVE BUCKS!!!) and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  I can't wait to make another one.

9  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Design New Craftster Swag on: July 16, 2019 06:15:11 AM

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Llama Llunch Bbag on: July 07, 2019 06:18:03 PM
Made this cutie today!  I'd link to the pattern on etsy but I don't want anyone to buy this pattern as it was AWFUL!!!! Absolutely horrendois instructions and construction. Took waaaaay too much interfacing, fusible fleece, and stabilizer. Probably could've saved some money using fusible interfacing throughout and got the same outcome.
Also, the handles are waaaaaay too short. Basically, it's just a glorified lunchbox but I think it's adorable nonetheless!
