I must say I do have some pretty incredible friends. I had lunch with one of my good friends today and you won't ever guess what came home with me today.

I may have turned her on to a new obsession a while back.
 She is a whiz at EBAY and and started a collection of toy sewing machines along with featherweights and old quilts. 
We spent a weekend with each other last summer and wham she was on a roll........

These just make me HAPPY!

Kneadlessly Simple Sunday

Last week at work one of my fellow workers was talking about a simple bread recipe that her kids were raving about and I remembered making this kind of bread a few years ago. It takes a little forethought because it sits over night but oh my is it worth it. I started it yesterday and finished it this afternoon. Just the thing to pair with a big pot of faux Olive Garden Pasta Fagioli soup, on a rainy Sunday.

And isn't this bread look in' good!

I used this recipe. Try it you won't be sorry!

The Reveal!

   Last week we had the Mystery Quilt finish and reveal.

I have been busy with the holidays and working, but I needed to see what mine would look like so I finished four of the blocks to make a mini quilt. 
I am lovin it!

Back to finishing all the missing pieces.....
