What would you say if you had to pick just 5 posts from this year as your best or favorites? That is the task in order to link up a Best OF 2015 post for a challenge linky at Meadow Mist Designs. This isn’t going to be easy, as I blog about such a wide variety of subjects, just picking 5 subjects is challenge enough, LOL!! However, Quilting has to be one, and the post I am going to pick is the end of the Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt. This post shows some of our participant’s finishes, along with a link to the pattern and some other fun links. This pattern is for sale in my on My Patterns page.
Readers know that I love to cook, and frequently post original recipes. It was difficult to choose just one, I thought hard about the Bourbon Chicken, but I think I’ll go with the Perfect Deviled Eggs, the last deviled egg recipe you will ever need. Not only is the basic recipe given, with the perfect way to boil and peel them, every variation you could ever want is included.
Next, what to choose? Something crafty, or needlework? I stamp cards, paint things, and play with my glue gun. I adore Mason jars, so maybe one of those crafty posts. So, check out the Beaded Mason Jar.
DH and I live in beautiful Western North Carolina, and we often go on day trips and excursions with our car club, or just hiking by ourselves in the local parks and mountains. We live close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and spend many of our driving excursions there. Drives and events in this region are gathered into the category of Mountain Living on the sidebar. This Autumn Drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway was also a costume party for the car club.
Decorating and tablescapes are frequent subjects for posts. I enjoy setting a beautiful table and serving a great meal to friends and family. Sometimes we host outside on the veranda with our gorgeous view (see the header). Sometimes DH lights a fire in the dining room/library and we enjoy a meal there. Either way, a lovely tablescape is essential. Enjoy this post with two tablescapes from just last month for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Tablescapes 2015.
OK, so that is five. I could go on with the book reviews, gardening, needlework, button crafts, wool work projects and other tutorials, but I’ll have to let you explore on your own if you like. Thank you for stopping by and looking around. I hope you enjoyed your visit, and to my regular readers, thank you for faithfully reading my blog!
