Needless to see, blueberries are a very common ingredient in my kitchen during late spring and summer.

Good Morning Everyone!  I’ve had a few questions and requests about my Seaside Squares Quilt Block (found here.)  So I put together a quick 2 minute video tutorial to help anyone that is a visual learner.

The jelly roll I used in this video can be found here on Amazon (and the white here.)  It’s so pretty.  I was looking for purples and blues for this project as this will be a throw quilt for my daughters room.

This classic pea salad recipe is perfect with ham and great at potlucks.  Made with just a few ingredients: peas ham, cheese, onion and Mayo; this pea salad is always a hit.

Homemade Pea Salad- Just Like Mom Makes

This pea salad recipe is a recipe that my mom has always made at every holiday get together.  It’s definitely a family favorite and I have been asking for the recipe for years.  She always tells me she doesn’t have a recipe she just makes it by taste.

On our way home from this past thanksgiving meal, I asked my hubby what his favorite dish served at the thanksgiving meal (excluding desserts) and he said, (to my surprise – I thought he would go for something “meatier”) “Your mom’s pea salad.

I’m sharing the tutorial and pattern for this adorable Fat Quarter Circle Skirt today!

Fat Quarter Circle Skirt

I mentioned in my last newsletter that I had gone on a fun trip a few weeks ago and was able to meet up with other sewing bloggers and even got to take a few hands-on classes.  There were quite a few classes offered and I took a paper piecing class and an embroidery class.  (See what I made in the paper piecing class here.)

Since the paper piecing/pillow class was the last teaching class of the trip, we were able to keep our scrap fabrics (6 fat quarters.)  Once I got home, I realized the fat quarters I chose didn’t really match anything in my house, so rather that use them to finish the pillow project, I made a skirt!
