odds and ends

I finished up the next batch of TrueNorth bee blocks.

I also started addressing my Christmas cards and quickly discovered that I was short 4 cards.

But I think I have enough now.

So much for paring down the list this year lol.

rush job

I was asked to make some door prizes for an upcoming Christmas event. A quick go to is always a table runner and I was able to whip up these three in an evening of sewing and have a fourth in progress as well. And all from a single layer cake.

Sorry for the bad picture, maybe one day it will eventually stop raining here. And yes, that is more Grunge fabric you see mixed in there. Can you say addicted? lol

card class

I took another Christmas card class last week. Figured these were the easiest way to get my Christmas cards done this year; couldn't repeat store-bought cards again this year!

This class was all sewing themed cards; hello, perfection!

Except the cards were a tad more involved than we thought. 3 hours to make 18 cards. Doable right? I think I finished 3 lol!

quilt monday

When I saw this pattern from CluckCluckSew, I tried to resist.
 I tried really hard.

But this happened.

Isn't it fantastic?

quilted with Pumpkins

The easiest decision was the quilting pattern.
I had to go with pumpkins.

Aren't they cute?

I've been on a real Grunge fabric kick lately; I just can't get enough of it.

And the binding. I had a fun pumpkin print in my stash which was the perfect finishing touch.


snack saturday

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

 2 cups all purpose flour
 3 teaspoons baking powder
 ½ teaspoon salt
 ¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly
 1 egg
1 cup milk (plus more as needed)

 Topping and Filling
1 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
 1½ cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
 3 tablespoons melted butter

 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
 1 cup powdered sugar
 1 tablespoon milk
dash of vanilla

 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously grease a standard 12 cup muffin tin.
2. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until well combined. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the egg mixture, stirring only until just combined.
3. Combine all the topping/filling ingredients. Gently fold half of the mixture into the muffin batter. 4. Spoon the muffin batter, about ¼ cup, into each muffin tin. Top with remaining brown sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until muffins spring back when pressed lightly. Remove from oven. Cool slightly, then transfer carefully to a wire rack
 5. Whisk together all of the frosting ingredients. Drizzle over the top of the muffins and enjoy every single delicious bite . . . maybe even lick your fingers when you're done.
