So funny story as you all know I was working on my first quilt and cleaning out my fabric bin so somehow I ended up making a rag quilt. Well the rag quilt is almost done, I have the front all sewn together just want to embroider the back and then sew them together, snip the edges, wash it and I will be done with that. So that was an unexpected project but I like new projects.
As far as the quilt I shared the other day I know the layout now and have it organized, I also went and got fabric for the edge and a backing fabric. So I will be working on that and probably finishing it next week.
I have started another set of Valentine’s day place mats but Walmart was out of interfacing and since I have no more left those will wait a little bit. I also picked up some towels so I can finish up my towel hangers. I guess I have been busy.
Today is about easy last minute appetizers. We all have been in a spot where we need to bring an appetizer to a party and well we are running out of time. This appetizer is simple and delicious. Caprese on a stick: cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil with some balsamic and salt and pepper. Take cherry tomatoes and half them, cube the mozzarella, and rinse the basil. Take a toothpick slide a basil leaf on the toothpick, half the tomatoe, cube of mozzarella, other half of the tomatoe and wrap the basil around. Place either in a bowel or a plate with a lip. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic over the top. Really though it is so simple, so good and healthy! It is one of my favorites and go-to appetizers.
Thanks for popping by, stay tuned for the finishing of my quilts and more crafts and recipes. :]
