Well, despite my two-year-old succumbing to the sickness (the whole works, fever, aches & pains, cough, snotty nose, etc), I still managed to make a totally yummy dinner.
This is basically The Pioneer Woman's Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza (can you tell I'm obsessed with her food right now?). I didn't have any prosciutto so I cooked some bacon in a skillet and then crumbled it on top before popping it into the oven. OH. MY. Absolutely to die for!!! I used her pizza crust recipe too (cut in half for this largish pizza). Next time I will pre-bake the crust for a few minutes before adding the toppings. I like a crisp crust. Oh and don't skimp on the onions. If your onion is on the smallish side, use two. Better to have too much than not enough. I will have a hard time making any other type of pizza ever again!
So, the other thing that made my Valentine's day happy was getting this package in the mail.
Last week I happened to chance upon these popular Metro Living Circles ON SALE! major score! I also added a few of my favorite Sugar Pop fabrics. And then from an Etsy shop, I HAD to get some of that cute camper fabric!
I coveted Laurie Wisbrun's Tufted Tweets line of fabric from the moment I saw it. I just love the little chairs and birds! The solids are all Kona Cotton (Violet, Dusty Blue, Coal, Ash, Eggplant, Cactus and Stone). The backing is a really pretty fabric I found at Hancocks that matches the orchid colors perfectly. It's going to be hard to let this one go!
Last week a customer asked me if I was going to make any Valentine's mini quilts for the shop. I hadn't really even considered it but once she asked about it I had a vision of a heart quilt immediately pop into my head. I love it when that happens. Here it is! Also, we've been dealing with very cold temps and the remnants of the rain/ice/snow we got Tuesday morning so I've had some extra time on my hands.
I've always wondered how some people keep their fabrics neat and organized. My stash has been growing slowly but steadily and I've been struggling to find a way to be able to see what fabrics I have while being able to easily get to them. Then I saw this great tutorial on how to fold your fabrics. It never even occurred to me that there was a better way to fold fabrics besides haphazardly!!! Ding! As you can see it is a work in progress but I will get there!
