Snowbirds - CIAS - Sunday 2008 1/2

Well tomorrow Saturday these beauties will be by our airport here in chico,ca. The Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Mine you we are 10mins.from my job and I don't think the residents that live there are going to be very happy with the noise level every time they do a flyby. But this will be beautiful and it will be a beautiful day for it also...So if you're in Chico enjoy.

Windows of Family Quilts

Yes am working on the family quilts, so far have gotten all but 2 windows done....NO NO NO am not showing any on the blog. Want it to be a surprise on who is getting what. All I know is what have I gotten into....LOL. I love to sew and have something to do after work besides look at T.V. and cook. But this is some job, don't know how some people get to do so many crafts and get them done so quick. Anyway today has been someday. Weather not to HOT today. Be back soon. Going to check out all the wonderful blogs everyone else has.

Puerto Rican Empanadillas

Well today I was thinking of my mom and it was time for lunch. Mom was just a good cook. She always did something so great for lunch when we were home. In New York you find the dough disk in your frezzer section but here in California you don't. So you have to make your own. Mom always made her own. So I got her recipe out and off I went and got about 10, which means that now no dinner cause we are stuffed. Takes some time but not long. You can also make these with cheese. We have done them both ways. The meat has a sweet taste to it cause of the raisins but we love them. Enjoy the Pictures.

First family window




With a great deal of tearing out seams, and machine not liking the material I'm using for the frame of the window, I have finished my first window with 8 more to go. I think if I work hard enough I might get another 2 more done. I did this frame about 4 times before it got like I think its right. Well back to the drawing board. Here are the pics, what do you think??? For being my first one.

CUTTING and SEWING





Well here I am back on the machine trying to get some more blocks done. Didn't know the task that intakes to start a quilt. On the other hand it is so much fun trying to get everything organized. As you will notice I got some more stuff organized and got more blocks sewn. Now to the task of looking for some more pieces to cut and sew. Just 4 more quilts to go before winter.
