Zig Zag Again

I pulled it out again. I have wanted to work on it for awhile now, but could I even remember where I was or what to do next on this quilt? 

I put the greens together 'on purpose'. I really thought about making the rows more dramatically placed, but I love how these beautiful paint-like fabrics flow into one another. 

It feels soooo good to work with beautiful fabrics, again! It is contest season, followed by spring concerts and the mad dash through May at the end of the year, but hopefully I can keep sewing. We'll see how it goes. :) 

Oh, BTW, I love Laura Gunn fabrics!

Joy to you!

Artichoke Heart Dip

Do you need a yummy, easy dip and you don't care about the calories??? Here you go...

Serve with your favorite crackers. I love Table Water crackers, because the taste doesn’t compete with the dip. We love artichoke hearts, but don't make this dip often. It is quite rich! But when we do, it goes fast.

1 can drained 13 oz artichoke hearts, quartered
1 c mayo
1 c parmesan cheese
Salsa, to taste
1 7 oz can chopped green chilies

Put hearts in round quiche style dish. Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over the hearts. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°.

Joy to you!

Ok, I am pretty excited! Something fun is coming my way...something I have wanted to do for awhile. I am going to be part of a quilting bee. Two blocks a month. Fun! Different fabrics. More fun!! :) Can't wait to hear the details.

Joy to you!
