I had a bad attack of VERTIGO yesterday. I was at Goodwill searching the books shelves. I had my head tilted to the right and after the sixth case (with 4 shelves) I raised my head up and the room tilted. And of course nausea and vomiting followed. But I did get 11 books at 49cents each.

Crafty Chica Cruise just ended....they had a hoo!!

My plan. Win the Lotto, rent a party bus, take all my friends/cousins/primas "That are caretakers for family members" on a wonderful trip with no one to care for but ourselves.....Gonna hire some Buffed guys to wait on us and give us foot

My sweet and wonderful favorite niece was going to suprise me with a "Crafty Chica Cruise" and then realized I don't do boats....sniff sniff. I really wanted to go and spent years dreaming of going and then realized, "Hey wait a minute. How could I go on a cruise? I don't do boats!" yikes.....

$2500 winning recipe for Carrot Cheesecake

I am making this cake in my new convection oven that I got for my patio. My  stove oven heats up the house and I need to bake outdoors, especially when my granddaughters come for their annual summer month.

This is one of the smaller carrots that Barbara's provider gave us. We have carrots coming out of our ears. Carrots sticks dipped Ranch Dressing, Steamed Carrots in butter, carrot cake, carrot/apple/walmut muffins, carrot salad, carrots in soup, carrots in get the picture.
Oh yeah, my hubby is holding the carrot. Our sis-in-law asked if he grew that in his garden...haha...we wish. Those carrots are still growing.

10 minute quilt block

Each colored square is 10" by 10".....seams are 1/4". Do the math.

Look it up on You tube if you want a tutorial. Super easy to make. Took me longer to wash/dry, iron, cut all the fabric. Putting together was fast. Three seams, some ironing and then I sewed down the yellow diamond shape like a Cathedral Window quilt block. Eleven more to go to make a quilt.

Yes, you can eat pie!!

I got a recipe (from a quilting newsletter) for the following dessert.


1 small package Sugar-Free Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 6oz container of yogurt

That's it. Just dissolve the jello with 1 cup boiling water. Then I add an ice cube to speed the cooling process. It doesn't need to be cool, it's just my own way of thinking.
Anyhow, then add the container of yogurt. Stir well. Put in cups/containers and chill until set, just like jello.
I like to use Raspberry jello and Raspberry yogurt.
I usually make 2-4 boxes at a time. 2 of each flavor. Thewhen snack time I am set.

Now for the pie. Make 2 boxes of Sugar Free Jello with your 2 containers of yogurt.
Then pour into a ready made graham cracker crust. Voila'
Let chill to set. Add lots of Sugar Free Cool Whip on top.
The above pie is Peach Jello and Peach Yogurt!!

Since I can't eat ice cream and I can't eat pudding......ta dah!!!!
Barbara's favorite is Lime Jello and Lime Yogurt.
My mom just bought us a container of Orange Cream Yogurt to add to our Orange Jello. Another one of Barbara's favorites.
