Catching Up

There is news to share from both the Tuesday quilty groups.

Tuesday was The Sunshine Club and we were so happy to welcome Joyce back from her various bouts of radiation and chemo as she bravely battles a brain tumor. Great to see you, Joyce!

Back from Cape Cod, Diane, below, was still working on the binding of her beachy quilt and doing a fine job!

I left a bit early to go on to the Farmer's Wife Hand Sewing Group down in Milton, New Hampshire at the Evergreen Country Primitives Quilt Shop.

There, I shamelessly showed off the big log cabin that I'm still not finished hand hemming.

My hostess, shop owner Camille, was wearing a great Tee shirt that read, "I'm here for the SEX, Stash Enhancing Experience". Too funny!!

Sue, below, had two rainbows of colors of thread for her beautiful applique work.

She prepares each tiny piece so carefully.

This is the pattern Sue is doing.

You may click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Just gorgeous!

Dawn was working on her English Paper Piecing project, Lucy Boston blocks.

These are all fussy cut and look so fine!

It had been so terribly hot that no one, especially I, wanted to bake a goody to bring. So I brought some no bake cheesecake!

It was pretty easy to make and by using Splenda, I ensured that my type two diabetic Felix could enjoy any leftovers.

 No Bake Cheesecake Bites

One 8oz package of softened lite cream cheese
One 8oz tub of no sugar Cool Whip, thawed
One Cup of Bulk Splenda
Splash of flavoring as desired (Vanilla, almond, etc. I used Hazelnut.)
Your favorite Girl Scout cookies or Oreos

Cream the Splenda and the flavoring into the lite cream cheese.Then with a spatula, fold in the thawed no-sugar Cool Whip. Reserve just a few spoonfuls of the Cool Whip as "frosting."

Place one GS cookie into a paper cupcake liner in a muffin tin. Heap the mixture on top of the cookie to fill the paper liner. Frost with a pretty swirl of the reserved Cool Whip and garnish as desired. (Strawberry half, jimmies, chocolate curls made with a vegetable peeler, etc)

Refrigerate for one hour and keep refrigerated until serving. Makes about 10.

Usually I say that we chomped chocolate, but no! The container of Hersey's Nuggets got left on the seat of my car in the sun for, get this, LESS THAN AN HOUR, and they got all gooey. Too hot!

In the meantime, Mr. Tipper enjoyed the shade in his cat bed flower planter.

Pray for rain and stay cool.

Happy sewing!

Your log cabin looks great, Vic. I love the color range of the darks. I can see you used a variety of colors but they all have an earthy look when put together and see from a distance.
