Eat, Drink and Be Merry - Happy as A Clam

Eat, Drink and Be Merry - Happy as A Clam

Years ago I used to watch a show called Surprise Chef. In each episode Aristos the chef would surprise someone in the supermarket and offer to make dinner using the things in their shopping cart. I was always impressed at how he easily he'd transform the oddest combinations into an amazing 3 course dinner. If Aristos the chef came across my shopping trolley and found the following ingredients I wonder what he'd make? How about Carrots glazed in cinnamon and honey served with Smiley Ketchup? Dessert would be Strawberry icecream  Served with wedges of refreshing watermelon. Followed by a nice cup of  Blue Daisy tea.  Yum!! *** While I've sewed these clamshells we've had all sorts of weather. I think you can tell this one was stiched on a hot summers day. It was always lovely when there was a breeze in the evenings and we could enjoy watching the bunting dance. Then there were extra windy days, perfect for flying k

Bubbles - A Finished Quilt.

Bubbles - A Finished Quilt.

Remember a little while ago I showed photos of a squares quilt I was working on? Well... I guess I didn't mention the sqaures were only one side of the quilt. Okay, How about I start at the beginning...  Ages and ages ago I had the idea of making a coverlet of circles. Lots and lots of two sided circles stitched together, some overlapping and some barely touching except for a few stitches. I could picture this bubbly coverlet hanging over the foot of a bed, or being a double sided curtain for a glass door.  It was one of those ideas that didn't really work very well, and after sewing a few circles together I packed them away and promptly moved onto the next project.  Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I got my order of Sis Boom's Beauty Queen fabrics. I was admiring the pretty stack when I remembered my bubble circles and decided it was about time I brushed the dust off and used them in a quilt. So I cut some Beauty Queen into squares,
