farm friends

I love this embroidery pattern. I feel like its says- you are my best friend and you are always there for me- but with farm animals instead of words.

I started this pattern while I was sick the other week. I still like to feel at least a little productive while I’m stuck on the couch. It reminded me of my younger sick days, and I would cross stitch while watching movies. Its just enough project to keep you busy, but not too much that it makes your fuzzy head hurt more.

cookies in the freezer

We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon watching The Jinx and eating cookies. We had to watch all the episodes at once, so thank goodness I already had some slice and bake cookies in the freezer. All we had to do was heat up the oven, slice some dough, and 10 minutes later, shove cookies in our mouths.

We used a variation of this recipe, except walnuts and chocolate chips instead, and no coffee or nutella. We might make it a priority to always have some cookies ready in the freezer from now on.

goals for the weekend

Our goals are pretty simple: 1. Make this yum looking strawberry ice cream. Doesn’t it look the creamiest? Where can I get some pretty strawberries? 2. Pick up a couple more flowers at the garden store. The key here is that we need some blooming flowers. We have a lot of flowers in the growing stages, but we want some blooms to attract some more bees! Have a good one!

a second t-shirt quilt

One down! All finished. A t-shirt quilt, comprised mostly of my extensive 4th grade Olympics shirt collection. I organized it in a lighter to darker color pattern going diagonally.

I finished it with a blue floral backing and binding. The binding probably took me the longest, since I did it by hand, and got a cold right in the middle that slowed me down. I added some little white ties to hold it all together. The batting is not too thick, so it feels like a light summer quilt. Totally picnic ready.

I have one more t-shirt quilt that needs a back, and one already made in the closet. They will be great fort material someday.
