A couple of weeks ago I finally completed hand piecing and hand quilting the EPP (English Paper Piecing) project I had been working on. I ended up giving this to one of my Grandmothers who is ill. I put her initials on the table runner. It is now on her nightstand by her bed.
A few years ago I had made these flying geese blocks and then I saw this cardinal fabric, and knowing my grandmother loves birds thought it would be perfect for a pillowcase to brighten her room. My mother sewed the pillow case together.

I have completed my mini table runner that I am making for one of my Grandmother's. I think that I will make the background fabric be blue, but haven't decided for sure yet. The cat Dexter loves to sleep under the recliner so I had to take a photo of him, right as I took the picture he woke up though. I have never made quiche before so I decided to make one. I had onions, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, cheese and a little bit of italian seasoning in it. It turned out good except for I needed to add more Italian seasoning.

I am working on a new English Paper Piecing project for one of my Grandmothers. Her birthday is in a few months, and I wasn't sure how long it would take for me to make a table runner for her. I have quite a bit more done, almost two more flowers done, than what is in the picture. I think she will really like the colors. I think I will make this have a total of five flowers.

I love using a slow cooker, normally to make soups but have been branching out a little bit lately. Recently I came across a chicken recipe, along with it is a mock cauliflower "rice" dish (it also has a greek salsa which I didn't make). The meal was good but I think that next time I just might make it with the chicken and a different side dish. Not to say at all that the cauliflower "rice" dish was bad but it is a little messy to make. Instead of using chicken breasts, I used chicken tenders as they were cheaper and then I didn't have to cut up the chicken breasts. I do think next time I might not use as much lemon or once I have shredded the chicken only put half back in the slow cooker. I couldn't find greek oregano so I just used regular oregano.
Here is my progress over last weekend. I haven't done anymore since but I am getting quite a bit done on my EPP project. I think I might make it a little bit longer, of course because it will go on a coffee table it will need to be a lot wider.

Last night I made a Taco casserole for dinner, it was pretty good, although as you can tell I got the cheese a little overdone. All that matters though is the taste.
I have gotten more completed on my English Paper Piecing project. Not included in the pictures is row five that I am adding on today, and I almost have two more rows put together as well.
