It has been a bad week - our storms have not compared to some other areas, but they have kept me off my feet. I am a real chicken when it comes to thunderstorms. I have been 'un-plugged' several times to protect devices and myself. The metal in my body (and I have a lot) reacts to the electrical storms, so I am not only hiding, I am hurting.
The furries are a comfort while curled on the couch - but I also have drooled over these several times. I really don't need more fabric! BUT they are so enticing!!
I did manage to get some BLUE sewing done. I just love these log cabin blocks - especially in BLUE!
And the three little 'starlet' blocks - they look on the green side, but they are BLUE.
I am sure a lot of you know this, but for those who are a little new to this whole game of 'quilting' - if you are having trouble chosing color/fabrics - use those color dots on the selvedge. Use a focus fabric and then pull from all those lovely color dots. AND if you can at your LQS (local quilt shop), take those fabrics to the window or outside into natural lighting to get the true value of the color.
ICE CREAM COOKIE CUPS
You can use your favorite chocolate chip or sugar cookie recipe, but I am not a baker and want quick and easy so use Pillsbury ready roll dough.
Heat the oven to 375º. Turn two 12-cup muffin tins bottom side up and cover 10 of the cup bottoms with squares of aluminum foil (use every other cup so there's some space between them). Grease the foil with shortening and set it aside.
Place dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper, and roll it out to a 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out 4-inch circles of dough and place each one over a cup bottom, smoothing out any cracks.
Bake the cookie cups for 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Let them cool for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and cookies together from the muffin pan. Peel off the foil and let the cups cool completely on a rack. Just before serving, fill each cookie cup with a scoop of ice cream.
**I like to use the mini muffin cups and a melon baller to scoop small rounds of ice cream - you get to have many little treats then**
I hope you all have a safe and fun Memorial weekend
