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?



 Hellooooooooooooo.
 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.

snack saturday

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
Instructions
  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.

This quilt.
 I found a FQ bundle at a quilt store and was searching for the perfect border fabric.
Could it be cuter?

quilted with Contempo
The forest animals.
Love.


The punch of orange.


Of course I backed it with a snuggly flannel.


And quilted it with one of my favourite pantos for square block quilts.

Adorable!





odds and ends

I went for a wandering and some goodies followed me home.


I also got this lovely from a friend.


I won this Cotton and Steele bundle online.
 I had completely forgotten about it until it came in the mail.


I also finally finished up some late TrueNorth bee blocks.


I regret delaying doing these blocks. They were actually much easier than I expected.


Now to start something new.

Gotta love the snowmen.

quilted with Winter White

He is a cutie!



And you can never have too many snowmen.



I kept the quilting super simple on this; nothing on the appliques or over the embroidery.
I may have to get one for myself.


A companion quilt to the cute snowman panel above.
