Three Quick Things

22 comments
Oh my what a hot busy weekend. Trying to cram several days into Saturday doesn't really work, especially when the weather is this draining. I hope you all had a nice weekend though. I can show you 3 good things today from my weekend.
1. Lori's cream cheese strawberry pie: Holy Wow. Actually this would rate a 5 out of 5 wowies. You can see Lori's recipe/tutorial for it here. I highly recommend it. It was easy, too. My girls helped me make this before church Sunday. My in-laws came for dinner and we had it for dessert. Thanks for the recipe Lori. This is one I'll make again and again.
2. Remember the giveaway I had just 2 weeks ago? Well Brandie won first place. Brandie has a really fun blog called ABC. I sent Brandie a kit for making my bag and she made it already! - just over the weekend actually. Thanks for sending me the photo Brandie. Don't you love it when the person that wins a giveaway is happy with what they got? Yep. Brandie is great.
3. I've always loved working with 2 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" strips in my quilts and original designs. This new 2 1/2" x 6" ruler is my new favorite. I got it at Erica's online. The price was right and it came with a non-slip back. I absolutely love this size. When I unveil my newest quilt design you will understand why my 2 1/2" square, my 2 1/2" long ruler and this new 2 1/2" x 6" were perfect. My quilt is at the quilter right now. Wendy, the machine quilter, called me while she was setting the quilt up. She told me she loved the quilt and asked me for the pattern. I considered that a huge compliment. I hope that is an indication of how much everyone else will like it, too.

Lori's right, it's four things, and they're all taste-tempting! I'm going to have to try that pie, love your bag pattern and NEED to make another. :) Waiting.....waiting.....waiting to see your new quilt!

Nanette,
ERICA'S ROCKS! I know online is great but trust me when I say you HAVE to go there. Amazing! I'll gladly take a roadtrip to meet up should you make it out this way.
All my best, Heather

Rae Ann said...

Ditto to all that Lori has said. I too can't wait to ses your NEW quilt! I know that if you designed it... it has to be GREAT!

Brandie said...

Thank you Nanette, I really do love my bag. It's all that red! It was so fast because you had pre-cut everything for me. Thank you again, Brandie

They all sound wonderful!!!:)

Sandi said...

Lori said it best....now I have to give her recipe a try and I will have to get that ruler. Wish I could shop at Material Girls for it but will check out Erica's online. Can't wait to see your new quilt design!

Rumi said...

Yum! Great looking pie.

Very cute bag too!

Nedra said...

I plan on making Lori's recipe too, so thanks for the double recommendation. This is the first I've seen the ruler. Perfect size for so many projects.

Thimbleanna said...

Ok. Now this is funny. I constantly drool over all your quilt shops out there, and you're buying a ruler from a shop that's not toooo far from me. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend -- can't WAIT to see your new quilt!!!

I just bought that danish dessert to make it! I thought for sure that was going to be a Utah thing. I strolled down the isle at my local Winco and low and behold there it sat! I grabbed me up a couple, quick! Now to run to the local farm stand and buy me some fresh strawberries before they are gone!

Happy to see Brandie was truly happy with what she won. That's a double gift. Special. Thanks for sharing the ruler and the pie. I couldn't taste it though. Can you please make some more?

I'm so eager to see the new quilt and the pattern... can't wait to hear more about 2 1/2" rulers too :)

Cute bag! I need to make that dessert very soon, I might even check for ingredients right this minute. Also, I need one of those rulers, very cool!

Looks like a great way to spend the weekend!

I have to try out the recipe. I have bookmarked it & I am ready to whip it up.

I am also going to stock up on my rulers. Thanks for sharing. They do have great prices and a great selection.

Hugs to you and the grandbaby,
Stefanie

Oh, that pie looks so yummy!! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll have to tuck it away for later. Your bag is adorable!! The new ruler looks great and a non slip back sounds like a winner.

Looks like a very tasty dessert, glad it was simple.

Looking forward to seeing the new pattern, sounds just as yummy with the candy bars included!
