This is my version of block #35, Star of the West, from Brackman’s Civil War Quilt this week.
Not my favorite block as far as fabric choices, except Jo Morton’s blue corner squares and the trusty star background. However, when I place it with the others on the design board, it looks fine.
I am a Pioneer Woman blog fan. Her tales of ranch life, family, and cooking really get me laughing and ahh-ing. She now has a cooking show on the Food Network. After watching her first show, I've decided that the secret to her cooking seems to be BUTTER. Lots and lots of butter. So much butter that my arteries seized up while watching her make mashed potatoes on Saturday’s show.
Looked so good, but don’t think my hips and arteries could handle it.
One of my Facebook friends (thanks Jay) has this quote on her status. "It's so dry in Texas, that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, The Presbyterians are giving rain checks and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water. " That about sums it up. Our watering is being rationed now. The lakes are getting so dry that you can walk across them in some spots. I ‘m ready to head north to the much cooler Rocky Mountains.
Praying for rain and lower temperatures here at home,
