March Midnight Madness

this month's midnight madness class was, as usual, fun.
i REALLY enjoy the ladies and all the conversations had in the 8 hours we are together. amazingly, we make it to midnight without trouble.
good times and GREAT ladies!!!
here's this month's summary.
{the goodies...}
i finally made laundry detergent, and gave each of the gals a jar. it has been a running joke with a few of the gals and i just had to do it. mostly for denise's hubby, robert!
i got the recipe from how does she.
and the yummy stuff is always fun. recently i had a friends homemade buttermilk brownies. YUM. i loved them so much, i searched for a recipe and found one here. delicious!
the cupcakes were coconut cream and it's a recipe i got from a friend. i have no idea to make a link to it, so it you want it, email me or leave me a comment. super good, even shawn commented on them!
for dinner mardy made fantastic homemade bread to go with a chicken veggie soup that i got from my mom. and let's not leave out the ever popular salad that michelle gets from panera.
we were all stuffed!
{the gals...}
love them all! such a great group
{and...the quilts!}
SEW blessed!

Watcha doin'???

i haven't been much of a {blogger} these days...
but there has been a lot going on. mostly quilting. lots of quilting.
my mom came and stayed with us last week. she was hoping i could get caught up.
it was a nice thought.
i thought i'd share with you a couple of the projects i'm working on
i'm almost done with the applique on the flower bucket quilt.
this is a picture of lynda hall's wallhanging from a little porch time book
and today i started this quilt
it's by renee plains in her schoolhouse quilt book
i {finally} did it! i made homemade laundry detergent!
{photo from great oak circle}
i've done a couple loads and i'm lovin' it.
oh...and because my midnight madness class is tomorrow, i made coconut cream cupcakes, homemade buttermilk brownies and prepped the chicken veggie soup.
i'll share all the fun soon...
