Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
I had lots of ham left and have been trying to think of ways to use it up.
Last night I made a quiche using a recipe that a friend gave me.
It is delicious and you can add whatever you would like to it to make a tasty dish!


1 - 9" pie shell baked for 7 mins. at 450 degrees

2 tbs. butter
2 tbs. flour
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 cups milk
4 oz. (1 cup) swiss cheese
3 beaten eggs
1 cup chopped ham, spinach, mushroom & crumbled bacon - whatever sounds good

Melt butter. Add flour & nutmeg & stir into a paste.
Add milk all at once. Cook until thick.
Add cheese, eggs and ham or your chosen ingredients.
Pour into pie shell.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25/30 mins. Cool 10 mins.

Yum! Delicious!
There wasn't even a piece left for my lunch today! :-)


Wishing everyone a very Happy & Healthy New Year!

Block of Month

We are starting a Civil War Chronicles BOM in January. You will receive very detailed pattern directions for the blocks each month and also very unique stories of military wives of the Civil War Era. You provide the fabric to make this quilt in your favorite fabrics. This quilt was designed by Homestead Hearth. The cost is $15.00 per quarter.

You can either stop by and pick it up or we can mail it to you.

Send us pictures as you go along and we will share them with others so that they can see your beautiful project as you go.

We are starting a new block of the month for the new year. It is called Family and Friends by Lori Smith. The cost is $14.00 for the year.

Each participant receives the cutting and sewing and pressing directions for both setting arrangements with the quilts finishing at 73 1/4" x 73 1/4". The quilt contains 12 sampler blocks that finish to 12" square. You will receive instructions for creating both quilt centers. You can choose to make either one or do two quilts if you like. The star block center can be machine pieced and there are no set in seams.

We will be starting this program in January. If you would like to join us for our meetings, we meet the second Wed. of every month at 10am. You will receive the block pattern for that month, see the latest products that have arrived at the shop, share show and tell and of course have cookies and coffee!

If you cannot join us, you can stop in the shop and pick up your block of month patterns or we can ship them to you.

Be sure to send us pictures of your blocks as you go along, so that we can see the wonderful colors that you have chosen to make it special to you. I will post them on the blog to share with others.

Note: Registration is needed for whichever block of month program that you choose.

Happy Sewing,
