can you hear me now?


So I like to take pictures. LOTS of pictures. Every vacation we take, friends are afraid at how many pictures I am bringing home with me.

I take so many pictures that I ended up filling up my hard drive. It was so bad, that I couldn't even open emails. So I finally broke down and bought an external hard drive and I am back!

And I even have a few somethings to show you! 
I made this fantastic quilt for a friend of her birthday. 

I liked it so much that I'm currently making another for a grad quilt.

And I have this to finish fixing.

It was a table runner from leftover granny squares blocks. The runner was so skinny it was useless. So one night while watching tv I ripped it apart. Hoping I can sneak it into the quilting rotation sooner than later.

this and that

I have gotten way too behind on my TrueNorth bee blocks so I devoted some time to get caught up.

I still have 2 other blocks to do but they won't take long thankfully.

I picked up fabric for two upcoming projects.

And we also did this 

quilt monday

Just a wee little something to show today. My sewing time has been drastically decreased lately so I have been sticking to things I can finish quickly. Like these adorable bunnies.

Aren't they adorable?

I kept the quilting simple and went with a  meander. I had actually wanted to cross hatch them but just started meandering when I went to quilt.

I went with a super pale pink for the binding which I love.

Just too cute.

is there anybody out there?

 How was that for an unplanned blog break? I've been swamped behind the scenes with a renovation that took longer than expected. But don't they always?  So not a lot of sewing going on but I do have a bunch of fantastic quilts to show you.

Love this one by BettyAnn. 
I actually sold her the book this pattern was in, that was how we met.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake

For the Oreo Crust
  • 1 1/2 cup Oreo cookie baking crumbs
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter , melted
For the Cheesecake Layer
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 20 oz cream cheese , softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup peanut butter , not natural
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag miniature peanut butter cups
  1. Lightly spray a 9 inch spring-form pan with cooking spray. 
  2. In a medium bowl stir together the Oreo crumbs and melted butter. Then press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared spring-form pan.  
  3. In a large bowl beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. 
  4. In a separate large bowl beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar until no lumps remain. Then beat in the whipped cream. 
  5. Spoon the mixture over the crust and smooth the top. Cover and chill in the fridge to allow the cheesecake to set for at least 2 hours. 
  6. When ready to serve, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in short 30 second bursts stirring between each. 
  7. Remove the cake from the fridge. Trace around the outside of the cake with a sharp knife, then unclamp the spring-form pan. Cut into pieces and top each with melted chocolate & peanut butter cups.
