Beautiful Handmade Quilts for Pink Saturday

Today for Pink Saturday I am going to post pictures of some beautiful handmade quilts.
A very dear friend of mine has been making quilts for years. I went over her house the other day and she showed me some of her quilts and they took my breath away!
This one is called Floral Bouquet Pink Roses

This one is called Pink Lavender Watercolor Floral Bouquet

This one is called Pink Roses on Dark Chocolate Floral Bouquet

As long as I have know Martha, she has been making quilts to give away to people that are sick, in the hospital or who are needy. She has truly been an inspiration to me!

Blue Monday - My Blue Hen

Thank you to Ms Sally at Smiling Sally's Blog for hosting Blue Monday.

I collect glass hens and chickens but my favorite is my blue hen.

Here is something else that is BLUE around the house......ME! My foot is all black and blue! I fell down in our yard last week and I have not been able to walk since!

X-rays at the hospital show no broken bones just a really bad sprain. It has given me a new meaning to the sayings "having your home wheelchair friendly" and "cabin fever".

Yummy Homemade Peach Pie

Our peach tree is just loaded with so many peaches that they are falling all over the place. I picked a few and thought I would bake a Peach Pie for my husband.
Here is a quick and simple recipe for a wonderful peach pie!

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced

2 tablespoons butter

Pastry for 9 inch pie

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir in peach slices and fold to coat with sugar and flour mixture. Pour into 9 inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until crust is golden brown.

I served it warm with vanilla ice cream!

Wedding Wish Tree Tags

A lot of Brides are using wedding wish tree tags instead of the traditional guest book. They have a tree at their reception and they have their guests write something special on a wish tree tag and they hang it on their tree!

Here is some I just finished today for a bride with dark Navy Blue ribbon

I have been selling and making hundreds of these a day in my Etsy store!
The ones with brown ribbon are the most popular. They made it to the front page of Etsy the other day!
The brides can order them in any color they chose!
Here is a Wedding Wish Tree in full bloom!

Pink Saturday - Where were you that morning?

Today is Pink Saturday and it's 9/11. Where were you that morning? We all can't forget that awful morning when we all rushed to the nearest television to watch in horror what was unfolding before our eyes.

I remember my husband was out of town on business and he called me that morning to tell me to put on the TV that New York was under attack. My husband could not fly home. He was thousands of miles away and could not get home. It was over a week before he could fly home.
Let's all take a few moments to remember those that lost their lives that day.

A No-Sew Tutu to make!

I am going to post how to make the cutest little girl PINK Tutu. Anyone can make this. It is a no-sew Tutu! All you do is cut and tie onto elastic!
Our church once a year has a Super Craft Night where we all get together and make different crafts all night. This is the 2nd year I have been in charge of this. This is one of the 10 crafts that we will be making! This one is Pink with black and brown ribbon.
You will need 6" Tulle, 3 different colors of ribbon, 3/4" or 1" elastic, scissors or a rotary cutter, cutting mat and a needle and thread

Measure the girl's waist and cut the piece of elastic to fit. Start cutting out the Tulle strips, depending on the size of the girl. Cut them between 24"-30" long. For the one shown in the picture I cut out 33 of them 24" long. I also cut out a total of 18 strips of ribbon the same size. 6 of each color. Fold them in half and start hand tying them onto the elastic. See the pictures below.

Continue tying them onto the elastic until it's completely filled. Use a needle and thread and blind stitch closure on the elastic.This project will take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish. You can also use two different colors of tulle, add rhinestones, make them plain without ribbon, etc. A quick and easy costume for your little pink princess!
