Project Where We Can Help

The lady I mentioned this morning was active with the Mrs. Claus project. I’ve contacted Debbie at Stitchin’ Therapy, the Mrs. Claus lady, and she would love to have a few more doll quilts.

Please click on the link above if you’re interested in sending a doll quilt or two, in honor of this wonderful lady who supported the project.

The quilts need to be about 14″ x 18″ so they’re easily and quickly made, should be easy to quilt on the sewing machine, even for those who do not do machine quilting, and they’re small enough that a whole pile of them could be mailed for next to nothing in postage.

With Debbie’s permission, I snagged this photo.

I’m pretty excited to make a few of these. I’d be thrilled if some of you would join me. You don’t need to report in, unless you just want to. Get with Debbie once you’re ready to send them and she will provide you with shipping info. 

Of course, I’ll post pictures along the way of my progress.

Tamale Making Day

September 12 is going to be our tamale making day, though as it gets closer, I’m going to recommend that you cook your meat the day before. You can read my original post here.

Some folks use coffee filters, and probably other things, to wrap their tamales. I prefer the corn husks. 

This is a reminder:  If you’re going to join us on tamale making day, be sure to get your corn husks ahead of time. You should be able to find everything else without any problems but those husks may be a problem for some.

If you can’t find the husks locally, Amazon has them. They may be expensive . . I didn’t really check the price but simply looked to see if they had them. Hispanic grocery stores, of course, will have them. Some Walmarts have them.

I have all my ingredients and I’m ready to make enough tamales to get us through the winter!

Design Wall – August 17, 2015

Nothing to add to the design wall but again, there was some amount of sewing going on so it was a good week.
