The girls are coming to sew, and show and tell tomorrow… that also means I have to cook..what to make…I spotted this dessert recipe on my desk! Woopie Pies from Red Thread. Deb gave them out at Quilt Market…decision made…well they are AWESOME! They are moist spongy little chocolate cake/like cookies with this wonderful filling in them. Kind of like a homemade hostess cupcake, only better. They are moist but the cookie part is just a little crisp??? I know they are good because I had an orphan so I had to frost it and fold it in half! The recipe made 13 Woopie Pies. Thanks Deb for the recipe…I know she won’t mind me sharing with you…Ok…so it is sewing tomorrow back to what I all have to do…I am going to make a new salad which I will make in the morning…then we are going to have little “Sliders” (burgers) on the grill. Then the woopies after. My house still had some Christmas decs up so I thought I would make it a little patriotic for my company…so I found a mostly red, white and blue quilt…then I scavenged for more decorations…and it didn’t turn out too bad!…my pic is a little blurry, but that’s what I get for taking it at 11pm…I will post show and tell tomorrow….LB
can’t wait to eat a whole woopie!
week four freebie basket block…
Aren’t these little basket blocks so cute! I love making them…do you have them all so far? By now most of you doing Lisa’s Flower Garden should be well into sewing them. Do you have a nice sharp fine scissor for cutting the little pieces? If not visit the site for needful things and purchase a dovo scissors. You will never want to cut without them once you have a pair of these heirloom scissors. Every girl needs a “good” pair if scissors or two or three…I love scissors!

here is the 5th scrap basket block…there will be more to come soon…click this link for the directionsSCRAP BASKET BLOCK #5
Here are my Civil War Tribute blocks…I am officially caught up for a day or two…
working and sweating…
Well the “Gathering” is coming along nicely….I chipped tile off the kitchen backsplash most part of yesterday…the plaster guy, the electrician, the tile guy and the carpenter were all there too. Mom and Mary came to start cleaning windows in the rooms we are going to start to paint. I don’t think they have ever been washed in the 15 years of the house, but they looked wonderful after they got the one bedroom done. Jake finished pulling the rest of the carpeting out of the basement and I cleaned and swept all the stairs, and floors to get ready for the underlayment for the wood floor. It was warm yesterday, but at least it didn’t rain…I think all the demolition is completed now and the rebuilding is starting…i know this isn’t a beautiful pic…but they will be coming soon…LB
Week 3 Freebie…
Where does the time go…I thought I just posted the new freebie of the week and I have to do it all again! I really like this block…so today after I was running around picking out counter tops, faucets, paint and so on…I decided to draw the rest of the freebie blocks…so I have all 12 drawn, I have 5 stitched. I have 6 weeks of blocks of the weeks blocks done (so I am half way done there…I have all of those drawn, but not fused down yet…I hope you all have received your first and second week’s blocks by now…I know the 3rd week got sent off to the P.O. this morning. It takes Nicole 7 hours to ship all the “block of the week” blocks. Here is a challenge…as soon as you get a chance to, fuse the weekly blocks down. This seams to take a little longer than sewing them. So if you have them fused…they are always ready then for you to sew, like when you are talking on the phone, at the Dr’s office, always take your little blocks along every where you go…you never know when you will be waiting, so now you can be sewing…all for now…LB.
