Talk about dropping the ball…I didn’t do a BLT last Friday. I was headed down to VA to see my best friend May and god-daughter in a play and was so focused on making sure things were ready for Daddy to take the reins. Anyway…I’m back. Having arrived just in time for the record snow and full of ideas for this week’s post.
So let’s make this week’s installment extra special. As we all know the holiday season is fast approaching. Some would say it is already upon us. That in mind…I don’t know about you but my To-Do list for this year is already out of control. But I’m trying to take it easy and realize, as I said in a post a while back…realistic goals Den, realistic goals. Only so many hours….
This week’s blogger dances to her own drum and has a great time doing it. Not only am I inspired but also learning alot. Go check out the Happy Zombie. Ya gotta love the name!!!
One thing my best friend and I love to do is eat. I can’t tell you how many times a week we lament not living near each other (She’s in VA, I’m in NY) but if we did we’d probably weigh about 300 lbs. each. This is what she had waiting for me when I got off the train. Butterscotch Bread Pudding…She found it on Pinterest. I’m very happy to say she now a fellow Pinner and addict.
In case you can’t see them in this picture…
Yes those are butterscotch chips…with caramel. “Please sir, may I have some more…”
May, kept pushing the whip cream. Finally I gave in but this is why distance is a good thing. The only thing growing will be my heart with longing for my friend. My butt with gratefully stay the same size. (I hope)
When I stumbled upon this blog I’d finally found what I was looking for. A quilt blogger who gave me simple instructions to achieve my quilting goals.
No, it doesn’t have to be perfect
Yes, you can “fake it”…a bit
and have fun!!!
Go check out, A Few Scraps: Free Motion Quilting. It’s now my go to place. Let’s see what I can get done this weekend with a little bit of “scrappy” inspiration.
Hope you all gleen some holiday ideas from this post but remember don’t go nuts…
Have a great weekend everyone.
