June 22 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, just popping in for a quick chat. It’s been very quiet this week, compared to last, and I must say that the last week was positively exhausting but exhilarating. I must admit that I’m enjoying the peace and the chance to catch up with the urgent housework. (Note: urgent – not necessary!)
Thank you so much to all the Bellaonline Quilting readers who dropped by with a little message of congratulations last week. I’d like to thank Helen, Judith, Anna Marie, Jane, Linda, Maggie, Diane, Alexis, Gail, Iris, Chris, Sue, Val, Marie and Sarah for taking the time to be in touch. Your messages were a delight to receive and food for my soul.

53 gorgeous library books for 5 year olds were donated by my crafting friends and these will be presented to the Children’s Hospital School Library sometime next week. What a lovely gesture from my crafting friends in celebrating my milestone together.

When I started as Editor of this Quilting site, I made a promise to myself that I would stay on topic and present everything quilting that I could for my readers. Well, today I’m going to “bend” that promise a little by giving you a recipe!

Last week was hectic to say the least and on two occasions I found myself cooking up a miracle at 6:00pm before my DH arrived home from work. On one of the nights, I only had one steak in the freezer so I cooked that up for the man. But what to cook for me? Well I had a brain flash and this is what I did. I got a sheet of puff pastry and cut two 6” squares. I got my spring form mini pie tin, greased it and placed the two squares into the tin to make a pastry “cup”. I then quickly browned 2 small rashers of bacon that I finely chopped. I cut up two shallots finely and then cracked one egg into the pastry cup. I didn’t mix up the egg. Then I sprinkled the bacon and shallots over the top of the egg. I gently folded the pastry over the egg mix, gave it an egg wash and stuck it in the oven on 210 degrees C (410 degrees F) for about 20 minutes. This little meal was delish!!

You may have noticed that last Sunday I posted another “free patterns” article, this time the patterns were for Aprons. If you’re like me and use aprons all the time, you may find this article useful. Here’s the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art2097.asp

So, onto my gifts for you this week. Some interesting items for you, hope you can use them.

Well, that’s all for this week. I hope you’re getting some quilting done, in between the buzz of life and it’s goings on. Take care till next week,
Cheerio for now
