A Rough February

But life is looking up.
(From Pinterest)

Let me show you what I've been up to.
So far I have 15 blocks (375 yo-yos) completed.
My goal: 1225 or 70" x 70"
I may be adjusting the size....LOL.

I've tried a few new recipes.
OOOO talk about delicious.
LOOK at these......
 you've gotta be hungry!

Click on the photo for the recipe.
From "The Pioneer Woman".
Honey Garlic Pork Chops
Both are quick and easy to make.
Hubby gave them two thumbs up.
I'm sure you've read about the
Homemade Laundry Detergent craze.
Let me tell you first hand.
It works!
Better than "works".

It's Amazing!
My laundry smells so fresh and sweet.
And cheap inexpensive to make.
Can't beat that.

Today is Super Tuesday and all I can say is:

Lots of Hugs and I'll have quilts to show you soon.


  1. Now the YO YO quilt is ANOTHER I would love to make one day! But I'm too busy making my own soap powder!Yummy potatoes.

  2. I hope March is a happy month for you! If nothing else, you're certainly keeping busy! The yo-yo blocks are looking *awesome*!! :)

  3. Hi Karen. Sorry to hear it has been rough going there lately. I love those words of wisdom!!! So true! I have been making my own laundry detergent for a couple of years and love it! I made some dishwashing detergent from Pinterest and love that too. Also made some hand soap. Now I want to venture into making bars of soap!!!
    Happy March to you!

  4. So sorry to hear your February wasn't sunny...glad to hear things are looking up. LoVe your yo-yos! My son makes my homemade laundry detergent; he's a funny kid! (12 now, so don't know how long it'll last.) Take care, Stacy

  5. Love this great post! Words of wisdom...lovely quilts...yummy recipes! How can ya beat it?? =) My hubby was in a 4-wheeling accident on Jan. 21 - was life flighted because blood was swelling in his face (he's been on coumadin for years) but has recovered miraculously. We have SO much to be thankful for. Neither of our gra'children, who were with him, were injured in the least. We all hit those 'speedbumps' sometimes..sure helps us to appreciate the smoother times in life huh? Hang in there - and keep sewing. WOW! You have beautiful creations.

  6. So glad everything turned out OK for your husband. Yes, we all need to stop and smell the roses.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
