Bread for the Journey

"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation."

Psalm 5:3

Project in the works

Cutting accurate 5" blocks with my GO! Baby. The GO! takes the work out of the cutting. Making this quilt for a little girl.

Happy Quilting!

Enter the Tropics

I've been away again, traveling with my hubby. This time down to South Florida.  And even though I've lived in Florida for most of my life, going into South Florida is like entering the tropics.

This always blows me away. Park your boat right by your condo.

My hubby participated in a World event.

There were many countries represented.

England, Ireland, Italy, Norway, South Africa, Jamaica, and of course the USA!  It was an amazing weekend.

Refreshing Broccoli Salad

A couple of weeks ago when my hubby took me away for my Birthday getaway, we enjoyed a great lunch at the Suwannee River Quilt shop in Trenton Florida. They have a cafe inside which serves, not only lunch, but some very delicious desserts.

We ate a salad plate and when I got home decided I would try to recreate their Broccoli Salad.  I had a recipe from years ago, but theirs was a little different.

Broccoli Salad

1 bunch fresh Broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup Craisins
1/2 Pine Nuts
2 green onions, finely chopped (you can grate 2 Tablespoons a regular onion if you don't have green)
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
Mix together and pour over broccoli salad

Refrigerate for at least two hours and serve.  Cool and refreshing.

A Binding we will go

Although my least favorite part of quilting, I find that I must gather myself up and bind, bind, bind.

Happy Quilting!

Bread for the Journey

Blessed is the man who listens to me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting at my doorposts.
For he who finds me finds life,
and obtains favor from the Lord.

Proverbs 8: 34-35

Birthday Getaway

Last weekend my hubby and I went on a birthday getaway.  We didn't go far, but it was a fun and much needed trip.

We met up with friends and enjoyed dinner at the Ivy House in Williston.  Always a yummy place to enjoy dinner.

 Fried Green Tomatoes, Yum!

  And then it's always a treat to visit a Quilt shop.

 No lacking for inspiration here.

We did a little exploring in the Antique Malls before heading back home.  A weekend R&R is always a welcome retreat.

Happy Quilting!
