How was your weekend?
Ours was very low-key, but relaxing (with just a jolt of anxiety!). It’s refreshing to just do nothing. It was good for the kiddos. Time to just be.
I did a little sewing on an unfinished mini quilt that’s been hanging on my design wall for, *gasp*, a year.
I was reading about Mini Quilt Mondays, that Faith is hosting this month. Just the spark of motivation I needed to get this thing done. Hope to share it next Monday.
The kids and I made some brownies, mmm.
This is a family recipe and making and eating them reminds me of some good memories.
I love how food can evoke that for you. If I take a bite with my eyes closed, the taste and smell just about transports me back to the house I grew up in.
I thought I’d share the recipe in case there are any brownie lovers out there. Hot out of the oven, I swear, these melt-in-your-mouth. I was born and raised in Dallas, so these are appropriately called Texas Brownies.
Recipe for Texas Brownies
Yesterday, we rounded out the weekend with a bit of bad weather. Our area had several tornadoes come through and we were extremely fortunate to be missed.
One touched down about 3 miles from us. I was relieved to hear on the news this morning that no one was injured.
Bedtime couldn’t come soon enough, so I skipped my usual late night of sewing and cut up some Echino for a swap before hitting the hay.
SewSweetness is hosting this fun swap. I love Echino fabrics, but the cost usually keeps me from having a varied stash.
We all purchased 2 yards and cut it into 28 ten inch squares. There are 28 of us and we had to choose a different print, so when our package arrives we’ll have a good mix. Excited for my package to arrive!
