Basting and Baking

Hello Fellow Sewists/Quilters

I hope everyone is keeping well and doing some craft they enjoy!

I have added some cream elongated hexies to another Lucy Boston block.

I also have been using my Thermomix.  Making bread, bread rolls, meals, biscuits to name a few.  Below are some photos of a small selection of what I have been up to.

The biscuits are Date and Ginger which cwere made for my Dad for his birthday.

The Shortbread were made for my Mum.

Not sure what airport security must have thought, as I brought them down to Brisbane as my carry-on luggage on a recent flight to Brisbane!

I also have been working on my Insanity Quilt. The pattern is by Rhonda Pearce of Post office Patchwork.

Here are just a rew of the half inch hexies I basted today.

Anyhow, this is all for now; stay safe and enjoy what you do.

Thank you for taking time to stop by.

 Happy stitching.

Been Cutting and Preping

It has been a while since I last posted.  I have been  busy cutting, what seems like gazillions of one and a half inch squares of fabric for my Insanity Quilt.

What appears like a gazillion one and a haf inch squares of cream fabric.

Also been cutting some one inch elongated hexies for Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses (the cream surrounding the centre blocks)

Think I have enough for the time being to get a heads up on sewing blocks together for Lucy, and mainly basting half inch hexies for the Insanity Quilt.  With the Lucy Boston quilt I have quiet  few centres awaiting the cream elongated hexies to be attached.

What I did do earlier today was make a batch of Pumpkin Cheesy  Puffs, I halved the recipe, just to make sure I would like them, they are absolutely yumbo.  The only trouble is I removed them from the oven straight away from being cooked and they sunk.  But I was concerned the oven may burn them, (yes I had the oven off), but also had another tray to bake.  But that is OK, will know better next time.

Thank you for taking time to stop by.

 Happy stitching.
