Sick sick Sick SICK sick.

Wikipedia says:   “The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza,[1] head cold, or simply a cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which primarily affects the nose. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks. Well over 200 virus strains are implicated in the cause of the common cold; the rhinoviruses are the most common.” Lookit. These…

Baked Kale Chips. New favourite Snack Food!

So for those of you that know me; you know about my GINORMOUS sweet tooth. And for some of you that *really* know me you know that my dinners used to include were basically Cadbury Creme Eggs, Oreos and Cherry Coke. But alas; time marches on and one’s metabolism slows down. Mine is slowed down to the point where I look at a Creme Egg in the lineup at Target and I gain 20 pounds. Le sigh. Enter in : KALE I had never even heard of kale until a…

Roasted Cauliflower – (Not a quilt pattern, a recipe)

Okay. If you’d told me last week I’d not only be roasting and eating an entire head of cauliflower for dinner I’d think you were having a wack attack.

I just made it up) lady who blogs out Cleveland way…..”Clean Eats, Fast Feets” – I highly recommend checking it out.  I’ve used several of her recipes and never been disappointed. My all time fav recipe for how to…

Update & Happy Mardi Gras!!!!

Lots going on here at The Quilt Cave. Christmas was lovely, gifts exchanged and everyone enjoyed the Big Turkey Dinner. (That I nearly dropped on the floor, but that’s another story a la Mr. Bean). I haven’t had much time for sewing, we are in the process of selling the house and so, must keep everything contained and neat and orderly. *Snort* I do have a few WIPS (of course) and plenty of UFOS…. A new favourite full sized WIP ! I did finish a whole bunch of Bloomers however…

It rains, and then pours

Well Hi!**This was a draft I had saved and forgot to post from June 9th** It’s been a bit since I’ve last posted; let me tell ya; when it rains, it POURS.  Life can get away from you sometimes, and even with the best of intentions all my fav and wonderful crafty things have to get put down and put away.

A Scary Halloween Tale of the Dentist. Not quilt related.

Hope you all had a great and safe Hallowe’en. Mine, unfortunately was more of the TRICK than treat kind…. Yeah. I bit into a delicious little purple skeleton candy…and OW OW OW!! I cracked a tooth. Yep. Ow. I know. It hurt. So I soldiered through the night and went to the dentist first thing today. Now, I just moved back to this area and hadn’t  had opportunity to get around to seeing a local dentist…..funny how those things get pushed back. I guess no one really likes to go…
