Are You Ready for Some Sewing Fun!

Lori from Bee In My Bonnet is doing another "Sew Along".
This one is called Flower Box Sew Along.
You can see her instructions on her blog:

Lori has a new book coming out in April and there will be even more fun.
So I consider this the Pre- Fun!

This is the Quilt Square we will be making.
Now if you haven't joined Instagram you should because everyone 
will be posting their blocks. Not only is it fun to see all the different
fabric combinations but its fun to follow and sew along.
Besides its like I said this the Pre- Fun!
Getting ready for the sew along when Lori's book
Farm Girl Vintage comes out. 
She posted a lot of sneak peeks on instagram.
You won't believe how much fun Pre-fun can be!

Go Baby!

I bought a Go Baby with this cute bag and have never used it.
Can you believe it....
I was inspired when I bought it but with a new job and moving I never got around to it.
But I was inspired again by Jodi over at Pleasant Home
So out it came but I have no dies....hahahahaha just the machine and the cute bag.
so I went to accuquilt.com and ordered 1.
I know what you are thinking 1 who orders 1 ....
well I have to give it a whirl first and then I will be hitting the quilt stores for more.
I ordered the hunter Star that Jodi shows on her blog. I love love love the table runner she did.
So hopefully it will be here soon and then I can share.
I wonder what it would like scrappy....
This could be my new addiction.....

No Snow

With everyone talking about all the snow they got I looked out the window and I have to say I am glad I don't have any. I know it looks beautiful but you have to shovel it, drive in it and let the wet dog in after being out in it. So I am glad No Snow!
I think if I was a skier I would feel different but I am not.
After living so many years in Utah with the snow I am enjoying not being in it.
I am glad everyone posts their pictures of it because I do enjoy looking at them.
It really is beautiful to look at. And I enjoy looking.

Lori's Instagram Sew {Fun} Along

If you haven't join Lori Holt's Sew Along over on Instagram
then you are missing out!
It is  #haveyourselfaquiltylittlechristmas 
over on her blog she explains how to get to it.

I have say I am usually one of those to busy to join in right now or I say I am going to do that next year, well I have to say I so glad I made time.
I even started a bit late which is ok.

Lori would post a new block or tell everyone what page in her book the block to be done is.
And she would even give picture hints of whats to come.....lol.....so fun!

She did have the best directions. And they were easy to follow. She also has very good pictures.
And it was so fun to see all the different fabrics everyone choose.

Lori made it fun to do each block. And after doing your block you add #haveyourselfaquiltylittlechristmas
Then everyone can look at everyone's progress and fabrics.

It is so fun and I enjoyed the anticipation of what the next block would be.
Every quilt looks darling and very different from the other.
I don't think anyone isn't having a blast!

I am so mad I haven't done the other ones she did.
But that is a mistake I won't make in the future.
It was so fun!!!

The stocking was really fun we didn't know what it was for a bit.....
toooo fun!!!

I did do my boarder different but I did use a different one in the book.
I do hope everyone has her book its too cute for words.

I did my quilt using a layer cake and the left overs I used for the back.
It really didn't take that much fabric to join in on the holiday fun.
Thanks Lori for all the fun!

Can't Stop Eating....

These are the best crackers EVER!
I was trying to find something not sweet to take to a retreat I am going to and decided to try these out on my husband. If they past though him then I know the ladies will like them.
And he has made several trip back and forth to the bowl.
So Winner Winner.
They are so easy to make the only hard part is it takes 4 hours for them to be done....
crying and crying but so worth the wait.
Here is the recipe:

3 sleeves of saltine crackers with unsalted tops
1 pkg dry zesty Italian dressing
1 pkg dry Ranch dressing
1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
1¼  c canola oil

Mix the dressings, red pepper flakes and canola oil together.  Pour over saltines in an airtight container.  Carefully Turn the container every 30 minutes for 4 hours.  We don't want them broken. After 4 hours be prepared to just sit and eat and eat them.
We eat them plain and with different cheeses and they were so good!
