All Binded Out!!!

I have all but one set of 6 placemats left to machine bind!!!!! I had a good night of binding this evening and was on quite the roll.

By the time 10:30 came along, I just didn't want to start another set of bindings!!! I will make sure to finish the last set before the end of the weekend.

Tomorrow is March month's Friday Night Sew In!!!! My goal is to get a good start on free motion quilting the two borders that are left to quilt on my crumb quilt. I am so close to finishing this quilt!!! I am anxious now to see it on my bed!

This afternoon I had a mini kitchen day. I haven't had a kitchen day or even a half kitchen day in a very long time. In fact I might safely say the last time I had one of these days was before William was born!!!!! Now that he is older and able to entertain himself with the plastics and bowls and such, I am able to start making up some casseroles and other foodie stuff to stock up my deep freeze again. This afternoon I made a homemade macaroni and cheese (I have been CRAVING mac and cheese for AGES it seems.. and it was sooooooooooo yummy)!!!! I also put on a loaf of cranberry/almond bread in my bread machine. While waiting for the mac and cheese to bake, I decided to make up some delicious banana/pineapple fruit smoothies for the three of us. We love fruit smoothies in our home. I thought I would share the recipe for you!!

Banana and Pineapple Fruit Smoothies

1 half can of crushed pineapple (the small size DOLE can)
1 medium size ripe banana
2 cups vanilla flavoured yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
a pinch of nutmeg
1 cup of ice cubes

Place all ingredients in the blender and mix til well blended. Pour into chilled glasses and enjoy!!!

William certainly enjoyed sharing a smoothie with his Mommy!!!

Apparently Trevor decided to send Alexi the dog to the crib jail with William the other day!!! William thought it was hilarious... meanwhile Alexi seems to tolerate it. William just LOVES his dog!!!! He jumps out of his skin with excitement whenever he sees her!!! I think they will become great pals when he gets older!

oh, I just remembered that today is St. Patrick's Day!!! So happy Paddy's Day to you all on the day when everyone is Irish!!!!

Quiltingly Yours

You got a lot done. It looks like William is feeling a little better with those teeth coming in. Such a cute photo of him sipping the smoothie. We make more smoothies in the summer when the weather is warm.

You have gotten a lot done. Being as today is National Quilting day, I plan on quilting all day. Thought it was a great excuse to quilt. Look forward to seeing your crumb quilt once it's finished.
