Graduation

My baby is graduating!!! Next fall I will be sending him off into the cold, cruel world..... of kindergarten!

We had his graduation at school and I could have broke down crying! I got teary eyed but tried to hold it together. I didn't want to embarrass him with my mascara running all down my face! lol
I see helping out weekly in his class in my future!  :)

Patriotic Pinwheels

If you are looking for the giveaway please go here.

I LOVE pinwheels and have been wanting to make a pinwheel quilt. So... Here are my first three blocks:

I used Riley Blake Stars and Stripes fabric found here. I just love the pinwheels print fabric!! Please ignore the bad points, I thought about un-sewing this but thought eh... I have plenty of time to do this later.   :)

 I cant wait to make more blocks!

Make My Hay...

Wow! I have been so busy the last couple weeks there has been no time for sewing or posting!!

My son had surgery on his eardrum and doing well but did knock me out of commission for a couple days!The surgery was to correct a hole in the eardrum, hopefully that will correct his hearing loss. If not he may need another surgery this time in the inner ear!  I am praying that does not need to happen!

We did have some fun on the farm in the form of baling hay! Always good times! I love how the horses stand in the pasture and give you the "go ahead, bale my hay look". lol


Hopefully there will be some sewing and posting in my near future... Have a great day!

Scrappy Dresden and a Recipe

I'm not sure where this cute little thang will go.... a pillow? part of a baby quilt? hmm...


And now for the recipe! Its simple.... BBQ Egg Rolls!! YUM!
All you do is pick up some egg roll wrappers at your local supermarket. They can usually be found in the refrigerated area in the produce section.  Then stop by your local BBQ restaurant and get some pulled pork to go! Heat up you fyer to 360 - ish. Take your egg roll wrappers (they are super thin) and place a small scoop of pulled pork in the center like a burrito. Put a little shredded mozzarella cheese in and roll them up. To seal them treat them like a present. Take a spray bottle and wet the areas you would normally put tape on your present (does that make sense?) then squeeze the dough a little to get them to seal. Place them in your fryer for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Serve with BBQ sauce! The picture does not do them justice... these are the best! I hope you can make sense of my instructions :)
