Tuesday Tales

I have been so busy with work.  Thankfully, it is almost done now. 

I don't have any finishes to post.  But I am working on my Jan and Feb ornies for the Bride's Tree SAL.  (see Bride's Tree SAL in my blog list).  I got more fabric and floss at Hobby Lobby.  I am using 28 ct Monanco teastained for all the ornies.  There will be 12 in total.

I got the pattern for Panopoly of Posies (see Tempting Tangles blog in my blog list).  I made myself promise to finish the Alphabet (Cheater's) and the Bride SALs first before I start this.  I won't let myself buy the fabric either.  It will be 32 ct.

I got materials to make Valentine's with Bri.  There are 15 in her class.  I was very happy, all Valentine items were 40% off at Hobby Lobby.  I got plain pink and red cards.  I also got white and red small dollies made of paper.  Then I got stickers.  That way I don't have to cut out anything and Bri will just stick the stickers on after I glue the dollies on.  She wants to make some for her aunts, uncles, and Grammy and PopPop too.  It only cost me 15.00.  I was happy about that.  I was planning on getting scrapbook paper and cutting them, folding into cards, and then decorating them.  This will save me time and money. 

Here is a nice snack for Super Bowl Sunday or any party:

Burger Two Bites

3/4 lb ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon pickle relish
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup Shredded cheese of your choice
2 8oz crescent roll tubes

Cook beef, onions, and garlic in a skillet until meat is no longer pink and drain.
Mix in all other ingredients.
Unroll crescents and cut all triangles in half lengthwise. 
Put  a tablespoon of meat mixture in each triangle and roll up.
Put point side down on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with ketchup, mustard, and/or BBQ sauce.

Aren't these interesting bookends??


  1. Ah yes, nice bookends. Looking forward to seeing your projects.

  2. I made the chicken dish from your last post Amy and we really liked it. I will make it again. I have to play with the ingredients as I cannot get things you can get but it was really delicious.

    I am also so busy with things and don't have things to show finished. I am working on a couple of quilt projects all of which take time... Stitching a piece that is on small count and that is taking time... But I can now post photos from our quilt group and the first blocks that are finished. I will look forward to seeing your ornaments.

    Hugs ~
