Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2010!

I was planning to enter my quilt in the online show next year in the spring. Who knew there was a fall festival! Yeah! So I am entering my my Crazy Shortcake Quilt, only the third quilt I have completed so far. I have blogged about it before but I wanted to show it because I am very proud of it and it was so well received by the recipients. Check out their smiles!



This was done using a quilt as you go technique and a layer cake. It was easy, fast and much appreciated. I am planning to do another one for another friend having her first baby boy early next year.

Go on Over to Amy's Creative Side and join in the fun and view some lovely quilts!

In My Crockpot:Green Chili Stew Recipe

I changed this up to make it more toddler friendly by leaving out the green chilis and replacing it with green salsa. Since I used the salsa, I also cut the water back to 2 cups. Its smelling pretty good right now so I am hopeful that this will go over well with my family.

Tanaka Farm Pumpkin Patch

We had a great day today at the farm. Our little guy thoroughly enjoyed his time running through the pumpkin patch, the corn maze and the petting zoo. Check out the photos and the videos!




A good time was had by all!

Is it really October already?

Wow, I have not posted since August. Hmmmmm, where should I begin? Well, I have recovered very well from my surgery. Still in school, fighting to finish. Already thinking about the holiday season. Fall and winter are my favorite time of the year because of the family focus during the holidays.Its just that much more special now that we have a little one. Believe it or not, he is almost 18 months old and just a joy! We are taking him to a pumpkin patch this weekend and I will be posting about that soon. I have been crafting a lot lately. I have been making gifts for the holidays. I am planning on doing a little grab bag with my girlfriends so I am making all the gifts that will go into that grab bag. I won't post pics now but I will later. I have also been doing some sewing for my boy. I made a hoodie for him from the this book:

Kwik Sew

This was a fairly easy project and it turned out great. And my son seems to like it!

Here is the hoodie and some cuteness!
