I should really be making dinner but I just felt like I was going to burst with happiness because I am in such a great mood. I was going to post on facebook but I always imagine my friends rolling their eyes and going "oh please, another post about baking and quilts and cute children" So it is a good thing I have a blog and can spare all my friends.
First I need to update you on food. I am about to make a really yummy dinner (easy Summer Vegetable Pasta and the Italian bread is already made). I haven't made it before but I know it is really yummy because it is from Cooks Country and all their recipes are delicious. I can't share it because you have to be a member to access recipes. I signed up for the two week trial free membership planning to cancel my membership after the two weeks (because I am cheap not because the website isn't awesome - it is). But I forgot to cancel. It is only 35 dollars and I think it is worth it. Cooks Country has product recommendations and ingredient brand recommendations too. And they test their recipes over and over again. They also give a nice explanation about them too. This recipe I made last week from another favorite food website and it was very tasty.
Last time I wrote I had all these plans of making tons of stuff for kids clothes week. Well the heat here just made it so hard to sew. It actually made me feel like I hate summer. And I am not a person usually bothered by the weather. We have AC in one bedroom but the rest of our home was so so hot. And the sewing I did while sweating did not work out. I messed a yoke up so bad (almost last step of one top) that I had to scratch the whole top. And a pair of pants that I made first to go with the top ended up with a stain. So now I am just working on an outfit for Luke. I have a new plan so I don't rush and so what I make is better quality. I am pretending everything I make is a gift. So before maybe I would mess up a seam but you wouldn't be able to tell if my child was wearing it, I would leave it. Now I am fixing it.
And a little quilting update. Tomorrow I am going to the Maine Quilt show. I think it is my 5th time going. It is my first time taking a class. I am taking a needle-turn Hawaiin quilt class. I still have to buy the fabric but I am hoping to make something like this
This quilt is from the book Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration. The class is all day with a two hour break. I plan to look at the quilts during the break. I won't have a lot of time but I will try to take pictures.
And now for the adorable thing my adorable son did. Today he was pretending to make his own shirt patterns. It killed me. Happy Friday!
