Wizard of Oz Quilt

So here is the finished quilt, my very first full size quilt, so pretty!



I can't wait to start another quilt, just trying to figure out what I want to make. I quite love the colorful quilts the most.

Aloo Paratha

So I am trying my hand at some Indian cooking and thought I would share the recipe with you in case you wanted to try it. I got it from Manjula's Kitchen:



The recipe is:

Dough:
1 cup Atta (Whole wheat chapatti flour)
1/2 cup water
1 pinch of salt

Filling:
1-1/2 cups mashed potatoes
2 spoons fresh chopped cilantro
1 tsp green Serrano chilies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp salt

Knead the dough to make it smooth, I found it kind of sticky so I put a bit more Atta as I kneaded it. Separate it into 6 balls of dough.

Ensure the potatoes are at room temperature before mashing. Separate it into 6 balls as well. Watch the video and enjoy your Paratha.

I will post the pictures as soon as I am done making them. Off to make them now!
Enjoy!

Happy Belated Valentines Day

Well since I have someone in my life I thought I would actually make a card this year. It was our first Valentines together and even though we were apart I still made him a card. He works so much that we rarely get some good quality time together lately. It's really hard but I am praying that things will work out the way they should in God's perfect time. Without further ado, here is the card I made him.

Inside:



Ingredients:

Bazzill Cardstock
Various Patterned Papers
Ribbon
Felt Flower
Rhinestone
Magnolia Rubber Stamp
Doodlebug Pink Glitter
Petalsoft in Red
Watercolor pencils
Smooch in gold, red, white
Zig markers


Thanks for looking,

My Wizard of Oz Quilt

Okay, so an update from a while back that my quilt top is now complete. I just am so amazed that God gave me two hands that were able to create IMHO a masterpiece. I don't want to seem boastful or brag but I can't believe I made it. I love it so much and now I am trying to decide how I want to quilt it. Isn't it whimsical?





Thanks for looking, if you have any comments, suggestions, please feel free to post. Positive criticism is always welcome!
