Happenings # 2

Life has been busy lately, so I thought I’d do a quick little summary of the happenings around these parts!

Magazines: I’ve had a few projects published this past few weeks. I have my Priscilla Wall Hanging on the cover of Down Under Quilts (YAY!!)

I also have a project in the current issue of Patchwork and Stitching Magazine called Tulip Time. It’s a foundation pieced table runner which is a project perfect for foundation piecing newbies.

So many secret projects which I’ve finally been able to share with you. Yay!

My little man had his First Holy Communion over the weekend. It was a beautiful evening and all of the kids looked beautiful in their church finery. Doesn’t he look extra cute in his shirt, vest and tie? He thinks he quite likes this outfit and wants to wear it again to the school disco later this week. I think I’ve managed to talk him down from that idea.

He is only 8 and one of the younger ones in his grade, but he’s at my nose height. A couple more years and he’ll be taller than I am! Wasn’t he only just born yesterday?

I’ve been discovering new ways to use my slow cooker – not just for stews. I shared the pavlova recipe last week and later this week, I’ll be sharing the chocolate mint fudge recipe. After sharing the fudge with friends, there are only a couple of pieces left. I told the kids I’d save them for their after school treats… but they may not last that long.

Do you have any slow cooker recipes you would like to share with me / us?

Going from one extreme to another, I’m contemplating buying a pressure cooker. Do you have one? Do you recommend any specific features when choosing one?

Have you discovered Aurifil thread on Massdrop?
