I am by no means some wonderful cook/chef.
But when I come across a recipe that is REALLY good, I like to share it! 
This is one of those.

One Pot Tomato, Basil Pasta. Recipe found here.
My only alterations were that I added more basil (fresh from my garden, I might add!) and 1-2 cups of grape tomatoes cut in half lengthwise (in addition to the can of stewed tomatoes). Actually, the recipe may call for diced tomatoes but all I had were stewed so I broke them up a little when I added them to the pot. Oh and I used linguini for the pasta. 
Topped it with some shaved parmesan.....DIVINE!

Almost one with one panel

12" to go on the bottom and panel #1 of 4 will be done! 
I'm loving these! Can't wait to get them up in the house!

What I'm working on

Curtain Panels! 
This is 1/3 of one panel and I need to make FOUR! I'm using the Bojagi Method and Crystal has a great tutorial found here.

I am in LOVE with this so far. It's a lot of work, but I know in the end it will be so worth it!

Long Overdue!

I've had this quilt done for a while. I even mailed it and it was received a while ago! 
I love these colors and I'll be working with them again someday. My youngest wants one "just like it".

I attempted the "Dogwood Quilting Pattern". It turned out pretty bad, but thankfully after a wash and dry it wasn't too noticeable. I need way more practice, but it was fun trying something new. 

I moved successfully from Newport, RI to Southern, CA. I'm still getting settled and have a few more boxes to go. But my next big project is 4 panels of Bojagi curtains for our family room!  Mine will be in big blocks. I can't wait to get started on these! School starts the end of August and I'll have more time with both kiddos in school. YAY!!
