St. Paddy's Day Dinner 2016

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/beef-and-lamb-shepherds-pie.html
Dinner tonight....Really really good!  I pretty much love anything with leeks in it :)



Along with some Irish Soda Break.  I made my usual recipe using King Arthur's Irish Style Flour for brown breads.  It turned out fine but I think I like it better using the regular flour.




Happy St. Paddy's Day 2016

Tilda Bunnies

I finished the Easter Bunnies for the grandkids.  The pattern is a Tilda pattern from her Characters collection bunny book.  I buy all my Tilda patterns via Amazon. 

The local shops don't carry any doll patterns (probably not on the Checkers Distribution list zzzzzzzzz.)   The body is super easy to make so you can get to the fun stuff of the clothes and added character quickly.  I picked up the strawberry fabric while at the Strawberry Festival in Florida last week.  Really cute quilt shop had a darling booth set up at the festival.
