More New Projects in November

Deja Vu! It is a new top and pattern...same color as the last one...different batik rayon print. Paisley instead of leaves. I was lucky enough to get several pieces of batik rayon on sale for a great price. 

It was close to our afternoon walk time so Logan had to make sure and remind me.

I love this top! It will make it again...and again. 

So comfy and pretty quick to put together.
 I have a Bernina 1130 that makes wonderful button holes.

I made version C, without the pockets.

This pattern is still available...not from my vintage stash.

And a quilt was actually finished. This was a Breakfast Club project from several years ago. 
I started quilting it last year and had a massive tension failure. It got pulled of the frame to get everything ripped out. I was determined to get it done before the new was nagging me!

All the fabrics were in my stash. 
The background is actually a navy blue though it is hard to tell in the top photo.

Pumpkin Seeds from the Pattern Basket. A great pattern. Planning to make more by this designer. 

I finished another Bucilla stocking kit, Gingerbread Santa
This is such a cutie! Very fun one to make.

I love the kitty. My granddaughter, Kate, always loves to track down our cat, Eli, whenever she comes over to our house. Her mom is allergic to cats so no cats at their house. 

Kate loves to bake and she does that a lot with her other grandma...this stocking will hang in that grandma's house this Christmas.

All those sweet cookies...adorable.

All the little extras put this stocking over the top.

I had a Christmas cookie fabric in my stash that made the perfect lining.

There is another grandchild on the way...a boy...due December 9th!
I'm starting this surfing stocking for him...only because his parents got married in Hawaii. I can always make him another themed stocking once we get to know him. 

And....I thought I'd share a recent recipe success. I switched to a plant-based whole food diet almost 5 years age. Instead of trying to redo my traditional recipes...I find it's better to get a new set of reliable recipes. 

These are vegan caramelized onion spinach pizza cheese or meat...sautéed spinach and onion with pizza sauce in a yummy herb loaded bread. My husband gave it a thumbs-up...very hard for me to get from most of the recipes I make. He is eating a traditional western diet when cooking for himself so he is technically a "flexitarian."

The dough is started the day before and proofs in the refrigerator for one to two days.
Here is the link for the recipe. Short Girl Tall Order
I'm definitely going to check out some more of her recipes. 

I do have public facebook and instagram pages for those who are interested in getting in touch with me without relying on blogspot comments. I can't always respond to commenters on my blog.

I really like the blouse you made. I love a button down blouse and the fabric is very pretty.
I am pretty much a vegetarian. I still eat eggs and dairy. I like to bake and have a hard time trying to substitute these foods. So exciting to hear about your new grandson coming soon. Best wishes.

Wow that shirt is a stunner and fits so well! I am always impressed by a neat and tidy collar having made plenty of dodgy ones throughout my clothes sewing history 😂. Especially when I was young and didn't notice/care.

As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from Lymes, I decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
My husband suffered from Lymes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and I saw testimony of so many people who were cured from Lymes , and so many others with similar body problems, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the herbal cure to Lymes. I never imagined Lymes had a cure not until I contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.Lymes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on Dr Itua can cure Herpes,Hiv,Cancer,ALS,Copd,HPV,Lupus,MS,Diabetes, and other disease talk to Dr Itua on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony .
