Shake it Like a Polaroid Picture

Do you crave certain foods? I am craving pot stickers today. I was craving fried chicken for about six weeks, but someone got tired of hearing me whine about it and got me a fried chicken fix. It was so wonderful. Worth every calorie. I rewarded that special someone with these sour cream biscuits. You have to love a quick biscuit recipe that only has three ingredients. I always cut the recipe in half. It makes a ton.

A little paper piecing is a great way to fit in small amounts of sewing time. I was still in Easter Peeps mode. At least it didn't turn into an orphan block. I unearthed a bunch of those yesterday for a special project. For this bunny peep, I added some Insul-Bright and made a handy potholder. Remind me to dig it out next Easter.

I was playing around with my Drunkard's Path templates and 1930s fabrics. I'm not sure what I'll do with these, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I may need to stitch a few more.

Speaking of paper piecing, I purchased a pattern on Craftsy a while ago and promptly forgot about it. While organizing my hard drive, I stumbled upon it and printed it out. With all the trimming and paper, this technique gets a little messy.

It was a semi-tough pattern for me, and I didn't get everything lined up, but it was fun. Did you have one of these cameras? It's worth about a billion dollars now. Just kidding, but they are collectible. I wonder if my college/camera boy has one in his collection?

Maybe I can finish these Polaroid blocks and make a little quilt with everything. I'm back in the sewing/working/cleaning swing of things after a nice trip out of town.

  1. the polaroid camera and pics are going to be soo cute together. gotta say, those drunkard paths are overwhelmingly 30's to me. maybe mix in some solids or blenders? then again, you may love overwhelming 30's. just a quilting era that doesn't do it for me.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
