Machine quilting Jasmine's #4

Finally found the time to pin the layers together. With help from DH.  I can't do anything fancy yet but I am super happy with the design I picked. I am doing sun bursts off the four corners of two of the blocks. 
Here is the finished product. 

DH helped me tape it all down. Which is quite frankly the only part I hate doing and it is the reason I won't finish a quilt. 

And some close ups of the quilting.

Recipe boards

I got some sticky cork board from the craft store and put it up on the inside of two of my cabinets. For those recipes you use all the time. I might even make one door for weekly recipe planning.

I have had a great time using a Pinterest board to keep all these new recipes I find all over the Internet and blogs, plus I have access to them anywhere. But I have found that it is still nice having a print out where I can say to whom ever is in charge of dinner, "Pick from a recipe on the fridge, doesn't matter which one-we have all the ingredients."
