Pumpkin Dog Goodies

So, I decided that my dogs need some goodies that I made...I had purchased some for them but unfortunately it wasn't agreeing with their system (and I will leave it at that).  So I went online, found the perfect fall dog biscuit recipe which was made out of wheat flour, pumpkin and peanut butter.  Not only did they love these goodies so much so that my 10 month old German Sheppard will now go to my refrigerator when he wants one, but I know the ingredients are wholesome...It was easy, quick and nutritious!

And by the way, they smell good enough to eat and the house smelled wonderful after baking them..

Someone Else's Treasure Becomes My Treasure!

Today we headed to town for a few supplies and groceries.  We stopped at the thrift store to see what they had and I saw these two little table toppers and thought how perfect for the season.  I came home washed, dried and press them and now I am ready to share.

Perfect aren't they?  The first one had a little stain but it came right out!  Looking forward to using these for the season on a table decoration!

October 23, 2013 - It's a Wednesday!!!

As promised, I am here posting some of my stuff this week.  I do have a couple of projects I have been working on.  First, a T-Shirt small rug I've started.  I just figured I needed to stay to my being frugal and utilizing or recycling and here I have these t shirts that needed to just find the trash but I couldn't do it.  So on to the internet and found the way to cut them, and here I am..

Pretty cool I think and I am especially proud that these shirts didn't find the trash can.

Second thing, I have done was work on a sewing machine I picked up at the little thrift store that was purple, yep, it's purple.  I paid little for it, came home, cleaned it and changed the needles the threads and started sewing in a jean quilt!!  No pics as of yet but soon, I promise.  Yeah

Third, I have been hand quilting a table topper for Thanksgiving.  I have never done this before and the beginning of it does not look good at all and I thought about taking it all out but then I realized it would be good to show how I started and how it ended so that others won't be afraid to give hand quilting a try.   We all should push ourselves and it's ok to make mistakes.  We need to remember to just keep pushing forward, it will be get better.

Last nights meal was a delicious fried rice and then this morning made some healthy pumpkin muffins.

Hoping all is having a wonderful hump day!

October 2013 - An Extremely Long Time Since I Last Posted

I can not believe how long it's been since I have posted.  No words as to why I just stopped blogging other than time and grandchildren became a factor.  Don't get me wrong, I have a great life and I wouldn't change a thing but it is why I have not been here.

Ok, so I won't rehash much of this last year as that would be a waste of time for all of us...what I will say is from this day forward, I will try and blog more frequently but with more versatility.

I am a crazy quilter, a quilter, cross stitcher, an embroiderer and knitter.  I love to bake, cook and constantly am trying to find the perfect recipe.

I read cozy mysteries, serious mysteries, some romance and a lot of self help books..I also dabble in writing.

I cook from scratch, make a lot of mistakes along the way for sure, make dog goodies, collars and use herbs in everyday life.  

Ok so I guess that is enough for our first day back together....Be prepared, there are things I may blog about and you may not like to read but these views are strictly my own.  I will never push them on you, nor will I stand up and tell you that you're views are wrong. I have a high belief that all men are created equal and will fight for your right to believe in what you feel is right..

See you all soon.  So glad to be back among the blogging world again!
