 I have been playing a little bit...

These stars have a crumb center...

I am not sure that I will ever do any more...just wanted to make them because of a video I watched....I have been thinking about using my crumb blocks some way other than just as a crumb block.  I want to use them as a part of a block, rather than as a whole block.
Even though we were at the kids I did not take any pics.  But I will show you a couple of Copper that my daughter sent.  She got them new beds and this is the first night after they came.

As you can see Copper is enjoying his.

And Delta likes hers, too.  The vet is considering her a senior dog now and I do think she is slowing down.

And here is Copper all worn out...I cannot remember the reason he was so tired.  

Funny story about him.  He totally loves the brisk weather and liked the snow that we have had so far.  He did not want to come in from outside.  However, he does love for daughter to go in the basement and play.  So, to get him to come in all she has to do is say, 'Hey Copper, do you want to go in the basement and play.'
We had a great Thanksgiving.  Sarah fixed two hams that were delicious and she also had this dip...not sure what it is called, but I totally love it.  It uses Frank's red hot sauce, two cans of chicken breast, and I forget what else.  The recipe is on the Franks Hot Sause bottle...anyway, I forget what all else she made.  

The ham was delicious and would normally be the star, but I have been wanting the chicken dip for so long.  I got the stuff to make it, but Roger does not like it since the stroke and I am afraid I would not eat it all.  I think I am going to see if I can half the recipe.  From the best of my memory, I should be able to.

My other daughter made sides, plus I went over and she made about 4 or 5 different types of cookies.  I helped a tiny, tiny bit.  One that is Roger's favorite is oatmeal raisin...not that we both don't like them all.  For me it is the peanut butter.  Since the kids left home, I seldom make cookies.

I made deviled eggs and chicken and noodles...the noodles I make from scratch.  What is funny, I never had made them till my boss had me help her make them.  And then she brought me a container of chicken and noodles later.  I have made them every year since then, I think.  For the holidays...and I always have a fear of them not being good but so far, so good.  I occasionally make them other times, but not often...

I have a video to is a little long but still such a feel good story.


  1. Love the video!
    Those squares, maybe a toaster cover? I would like that. lol

    That Copper is a "ham" both dogs!!

    Your Thanksgiving sounds wonderful Rose.

  2. What neat quilt pieces. Unusual, but I really like them.
    Oh my, those dogs are precious. Glad you had a nice time with the girls.

    Tell Roger that is my favorite cookie too!
    Have a great week.

  3. I love the crumb centers! What fun to mix them up as part of a block. It sounds as though you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It really is time to start making cookies! We love them as much as the kids do.

  4. I'm glad you had such a lovely thanksgiving. Your stars are gorgeous! As usual, you have such a talent for matching fabrics. I would hang at least one up on the wall. Maybe keep changing them.

  5. Oh, I like your stars. I might even be able to tolerate making crumbs that size (hehehe). My grandmother used to make home noodles, I loved them! I bet I watched her make them a hundred time and never could make them myself. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  6. Love those blocks.
    The dogs do look pleases with their new beds.
    That sounds like buffalo chicken dip. I make it and can never eat it all myself but I freeze smaller containers of it that are just enough for one serving of it.

  7. Hello,
    I am glad you and your family had a Happy Thanksgiving. I love the sweet Copper and Delta. They do look like they love their new beds. Take care, enjoy your day and week ahead.

  8. can't stop smiling over those new beds and sleeping dogs... so sweet both of them.. the horse is beautiful and now i am wondering what will happene when her owner is gone...

  9. Your Thanksgiving meal sounds delicious! And, those pups appear to be delighted with their new beds. Ah, yes, family events are so wonderful, aren't they!

  10. The photo of Cooper on the new bed is priceless.

    How wonderful to be able to spend Thanksgiving with family again.

    Even horses love babies!

  11. Liked the dog pictures; they look comfy in their new beds. We went to NH for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner with family.

  12. I'm getting hungry just hearing about all that delicious food.
    The dogs sure are enjoying their new beds!!!

  13. aha - crumbs. As you know I use them differently - maybe they would be better as an applique type process - or layered with parts showing. Of course, your crumbs are fabric whereas for the most part mine are paper.

    love the idea of "calling copper inside" :-)

  14. Sounds like you had a good time with the family and lots of delicious food.

  15. I love it when you play as we get to see these lovely quilts :) Coffee and Delta are adorable on their new beds. Sounded like a great Thanksgiving with your family. Great story of the horse, one of those feel good ones I enjoy hearing about. Thanks Rose and Happy December!

  16. You beat all making quilt squares! I would be so excited if I ever made even one. I love those dogs and their new beds. Our Ellie sleeps just like Copper. We got her a new round bed too.
