Valentines Day-T minus 14 days away

1217.00001
Love Caddy

How many of you LOVE Valentines day or Don’t?  I know some of you out there, like me, probably would prefer to receive gifts from your significant other on any other day than when they are suppose to be giving you a gift.  But lets be real here, I secretly would still LOVE to get a gift on Valentines Day! Am I right? Last year Phil out did himself and 2 days before Valentines Day he proposed to me, we were leaving on a trip and he didn’t want to be responsible for hanging onto it until Valentines Day.  I am pretty sure he will be unable to top this year, but I am completely willing to let him try! 🙂

If your husband is anything like mine when it comes to buying gifts for me, he needs a hint on what I would like. With that in mind we have some great little gifts that you might want to print out and leave somewhere that he might see them and get the hint. We have some individual items that would be a fun gift to give or get…..

 

Also Ladies and Gentlemen we need to stick together and take care of our own, maybe you have a sewing friend that has lost their loved one this past year and a little Valentine’s Pick Me up is just what they need.  Or a sewing friend that may be a little down on their luck lately….a small gift to know that you are thinking about them could be what the doctor ordered.  We have gift bundles available.  A mug that they can use now during the winter, and some Valentine’s Goodies inside.  Or a little caddy that they can store stuff in with a few little sewing goodies, pick you flavor and have an instant gift!

I think what I am trying to say is that we all love to get a little something on Valentine’s Day and you can brighten up the lives of your friends or family by just doing a little something for them, especially if they don’t expect it!

 

We hope you have a beautiful Day, jessica

Bring yourself, a friend, a family member, even a child to this years Make and Take. There was no easy way to do a stackable like we did the last few years in the shape of a Gingerbread man so we had to come up with something a little different.  We came up with these awesome wood cut out Gingerbread men! In Wisconsin you can come in any time from 9:30-4 on Thursday and Friday and for $8.00 you can come and make these cute little ornaments for your tree.  The thread is included in the kits, we will provide the needle.

Mugs

thumbnail_Primitive Gatherings Java Taster.jpg

It is our 5th in the series of Holiday mugs from us.  Have you been collecting them through the years?  If so, we have the next one to add to your collection. This year, as you probably have already guessed, is a Gingerbread Man! These mugs are handcrafted in Wisconsin just down the road from our Shop! Each mug is 4 ½” tall, can hold 16 ounces and are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe. This year the Mugs are $19.50, they should retail for $24.00, but we want everyone to be able to purchase them if they would like one. There will be an additional shipping charge on the mugs, as we need to purchase extra packaging materials to ensure that the mugs get to you safely and intact. We have ordered more mugs than we ever have before in hopes that we are able to send out everyone’s mugs right away with your order. (no seriously we did, our Shop overfloweth with gingerbread mugs, yes pun intended)

Do we have more you ask?

Yes, of course we have more! When we put a little pressure on Lisa, she creates, creates and creates!  And of course everything is amazing! This year we had to have everything done before we went to Market and Festival in Houston because the dates were pushed back.

Reindeer Games is a beautiful, classic, modern feeling mat done on a cream textured background.  I LOVE the deer in this mat!  18 inches round and only $40.00 for kit and pattern!

Like Father, Like Son is the cutest darn pillow you will ever see! On a red flannel plaid background this pillow measures 16″x16″ when complete, the back of the pillow is provided for you as well in the kit.  Do you need a pillow, we have that as well in the drop down box,  we are using an 18″x18″ pillow so that your pillow is overstuffed and you can see the whole project once you have completed it.

We have frames available as well if you would like to frame him.

I made Cinnamon Cucumber Bread today…..

 

Yep! You read that right! I made Cinnamon Cucumber Bread, and it actually turned out amazingly delicious.  I know, I know, I know, you are thinking that there is no way that that can be good, but 14 out of 15 people who were my guinea pigs liked it!  That HAS to be considered a success! I did not tell anyone what the secret ingredient was before they tasted it, because I will be honest, I am the 1 person who did not like it, and I think it is because I can’t get over a cucumber being in my bread.  I’m a picky eater so I honestly didn’t think I was going to like it to begin with, but my fiancé and neighbors will try anything so I thought I would give it a whirl, what did I have to loose? I knew someone was going to like it!  Out of those 15 people only 1 person was able to guess what the secret ingredient was, only after you tell them that it is cucumber do they all go “oh, yeah, I can taste it now.” lol  Lisa’s grandson Jace even had some of it and liked it!

IMG_0738

How did this recipe come about you wonder?  I had several large cucumbers in my garden that did not get picked in time to be good to eat and I did not want to throw them away, the only other recipe that I had was for refrigerator pickles and my fiancé and I do not like sweet pickles, so I crossed that recipe off my list to make. Now what? I jumped on to trusty ol’ Pintrest to see if they had anything that might appeal to us.  Lo and behold I found a Cinnamon Cucumber Bread Recipe from Been There Baked That Recipe Blog and I thought “well, if you can use zucchini why wouldn’t you be able to use cucumber?”  I had all the ingredients needed which was a plus, so I got everything out and started mixing!  I know I know I know, you are thinking there So lets get started! You will be able to print the recipe by clicking on the recipe name below.

 

Cinnamon Cucumber Bread

Ingredients:
2 cups grated, seeded and peeled cucumbers*
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil (I used Wesson)
2 tsp vanilla (my second batch I accidently put in tbsps. and liked people liked it better)
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour **
1-1/2 cups flour**
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (I only used about a ½ tsp)
1/4 tsp baking powder

*When you grate your cucumbers there will be a lot of water that comes out, you will use that in your bread as well.  DO NOT throw out that part, it keeps the bread moist.

**If you do not like wheat flour you can just use the regular flour and put 3 total cups in.

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients including cucumbers, with sugar and mix.

IMG_0744

Once that is mixed, add in the rest of the ingredients gradually. Pour into greased pans, bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. The amount of time in the oven will depend on the pans and stove you have them in.  It took my mini-mini loaves only 20 minutes to bake, my large loaf pans it took almost and hour and 15 minutes to bake.  Take a clean knife and poke it thru the middle of the loaf, if it comes out clean it is ready to remove from the oven, if not let it sit in the oven for a while longer, checking with clean knife ever so often. Remove from oven and let cool in pans for at least 15 minutes before removing, and ENJOY.

I hope you all like this recipe, it was something different and definitely a surprise! I never would have thought that cucumber bread would be such a hit with everyone.

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

I knew I should have stopped sewing…..today

Ever have one of those days where you know after the first mistake you made stitching you should have stopped, but you thought there is no way possible you are going to screw up again?  I had one of those days yesterday.  Started stitching, went to press and as soon as I did that I KNEW I had stitched them all wrong.  So I went about using my handy, dandy seam ripper and ripped it all out and started all over again.  I can never have too many seam rippers, I always seem to use one, put it down and then it is gone again.  So I have several of these seam rippers in my sewing drawer, it is called a Seam Fix.  The Seam Fix has a precision sharp cutters and a rubber end cap; the rubber on the end of the cap allows you to erase away the left over thread that is always still stuck in the holes after you have ripped the seam apart. Its always so dang hard to get all those pieces of thread off of the fabric.

Once I got those blocks all said and done and fixed! I moved on to my next set of blocks, (remember I am making 2 of the Moda Blockhead 2 quilts). I got all the way to making the last seam and noticed I did it AGAIN! ugh! Somedays I don’t think I should be sewing.  So I took out my trusty sidekick, the Seam Ripper, and got that seam ripped and fixed.

IMG_0726

My initial post for today was going to be about how I used our Triangle Paper to create block #6 of the Moda Blockheads.  I have troubles sometimes when I am trying to make the half square triangles the traditional way, so I thought if I used the 1 1/2″ Triangle Paper the block would come out much better than if I pieced it the traditional way.  And guess what?  It came out accurate!

So I think anytime we have half square triangles I am going to be using the Triangle Paper from us!  If you have never used Triangle Paper before you need to give it a whirl! It is the best thing since sliced bread to making half square triangle accurate and fast!  We have 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 2″ and 2 1/2″, pick a size any size and try it out! We also have Variety Packs and Triangle Papers made for 5″ Charms!

img_9904-copy

Isn’t it amazing how by just moving the pieces around and the colors that you get a whole different look to your block.  I did my 2 blocks differently just to change things up a bit. IMG_0727

 

One last little tidbit.  I know that Block #8 is an appliqué block, I’m guessing there will be more than one of them in this quilt…..and I am not so good at doing cotton hand appliqué work.  So I am going to change it to a pieced block, to do this I grab out my trusty copy of the 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks book.  This book has everything imaginable in it! They give you a block and then they have the cutting instructions for 6-different sizes of block, you can see an example below on how it is all laid out.  This is a great book to have in your bookshelf as a great reference point even if you are not doing the Moda Blockheads quilt!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE though if you are not doing one of the blocks and want to replace one of them, please still go to the Designers website and see their post and wonder around their website, they have awesome advice and great things to look at!

 

Its almost the weekend! Have a spectacular day!
