Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken with Mushrooms

Cooler days and nights, combined with busy schedules means the slow cooker is coming out of the pantry to take care of dinner.  While I usually think of this cooker as the best way to a hearty meal ready when I get home, I wanted to make a low fat dish.  Over the years of …

Autumn In The Mountains Car Show

Yesterday was our big event for the British Car Club, our annual Autumn In The Mountains car show.  It is the last big event for me for a busy September.  I am president of this club, so the workload for me was increased this year.  Our car is the one on the right, a TVR.  …

Using a Directional Print in Stacked Bricks

I am still on my plan to make more boy's themed quilts for our charity quilt goal with the quilt club.  I found this really cute Winnie the Pooh fabric, but it is directional.  The print has a fairly large repeat, so bigger pieces will show off this print better than cutting small ones. I …

Late Summer Cookout

OK, I'll admit it, I am a clearance and thrift store hound.  Who doesn't love a great bargain?  Especially a bargain on something you have never known you might want before!  Such was the case as I found these really interesting little dishes on the clearance rack at one of my favorite haunts.  They were …

Fixing a Mistake in a Finished Quilt

Sometimes the excitement of finishing a project gets the better of me and I do something careless in my haste to finish.  Well, that happened with the Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt.  How is it that I can look at a quilt for weeks on end, do this mistake early on and miss every possible time …
