Yesterday was my turn to host Quilt Group. When it's at your house there usually isn't much time to sew because the hostess is running around trying to fix this wonderful, fabulous lunch. Well, I decided I wanted to sew yesterday so I was going to "SIMPLIFY" my lunch. So, on a "Back to School" theme here are the recipes for the lunch I served.

Chicken Salad

4 chicken breast halves, cooked & cubed
3/4 cup chopped celery
3 sliced green onions
1/2 cup cashews
1/8 teaspoon curry
1 cup red grapes cut in half
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/4 cup whipping cream

Mix everything and chill. Serve on a bed of lettuce or a buttery croissant.

Flaky Buttery Croissant

Paradise Bakery

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Paradise Bakery

Crispy Sun Chips
Grocery store

Make Chicken Salad the day before your party. Assemble everything in about 20 min and serve.

Sit back and enjoy lunch with your friends. Sew the rest of the day because there was no

clean-up either.

I'm teaching some quilting classes this fall at church so I needed to get the samples done. So here is the first project, an easy pinwheel quilt. It's hard to tell but the fabrics are soft pinks and blues with a hint of brown. My favorite part is the pink chenille back.

Next is this darling Snowman wall hanging called Brrrrrrr!
It's made from a Crazy Eights charm pack. If you don't know what a charm pack is you need to google it and get sewing.

And last, I just needed another purse. I'm going on a little trip next week and this will be perfect. it does need a cute button to finish it off. Gotta go to Utah for that. (that's an expensive button).

In The Works

Summer has really gotten in the way of sewing but I plan to fix that soon. Here are a few projects that are nearing completion. Some closer that others.

This is a fun quilt to throw on my couch for fall. I better hurry.

A RED & WHITE quilt I have been working on a very long time. I have always wanted a red and white quilt.

A quilt using my "30's" stash. I only had to buy the white fabric.
I love 9 patches!

And last but not least, a fun Easter table runner that was supposed to be done last April. Thank goodness another Easter will roll around in 9 months. I made this with a Honey Bun.
