Our Best Bites Cookbook Review

I love this blog:
And when they posted they had a cookbook coming out I was over the moon. I was going to order it on line and I was in Costco and there it was. I ran to the check out to buy it. I am one of those weird people who loves to read cookbooks and I must say I LOVED reading this one! 
It is a very nice book and the pictures are perfect. I love how it comes with a plastic bookmark that you can move to any page and its really cute. I would say I would try almost every recipe and I don't say that to often. 
This is one you will want to add to your collection. I am so glad I did. And the one thing is a lot of the time I get excited to get someones book and when it comes there only a very few recipes I would make....well this isn't the case with this book.....I LOVE it!
You should run to Costco before they are gone... because then you will have to wait for the mail carrier and that is just was to long to wait.


More Mug Rugs!

My mug rugs were sent off but I couldn't show you until they were long gone..
The person I got in the swap  may have stopped and seen...
But I am sure its ok to share now.
This swap was really fun and I went out of my element and did bright colors.

A Favor for a Treat!

Does this look like a good favor...

These little cupcakes are really wash cloths folded into 3rds and rolled to fit in the cupcake paper and topped with a flower and button. Then put into these cute bags and tied off. I made them for a favor I am giving away this week.I am suppose to bring a treat to a meeting I hope these count! I had so much fun making them. I did light a sugar cookie candle to help the mood.


Done...finished...complete! Finally!


Finishing Touches

I have been finishing up this quilt and thought I would share .... I wasn't to sure about this one until now and I think I like it...

I can't remember the name of the line...
I used a Jelly roll for the center and the binding.
I was a very easy quilt to put together. And I got the pattern out of a Better Homes and Garden Quilting magazine. I have been making more and more from the magazines I buy than the books.I guess 7 dollars beats 22 dollars,,,LOL


You can get this pattern at my Etsy Shop just click on the link on the side.


Friends for Tea!

Friends for Tea!
That's what I named this pattern.
I just love cups and Tea!
I decided I needed a pattern for a dish towel to put in a gift bag
I am giving a friend. I though this and a fun tea pot with tea would be a great gift.
I did have my Husband do the stitching since hes a lot better than I am.
Shh I don't want him to know I said that ....I'll never live down I admitted it!
