Too Hot

OK so this is supposed to be a quilting blog and I haven't been quilting, oops
I have been thinking about cooking though.
The main thing I've been thinking is its too hot to cook.
So in honor of this thought here is my favourite quick easy delicious meal

SHAKE and BAKE quiche

Tools needed
1 large bowl with airtight lid
measuring implements
quiche flan
teenager (optional)


1/2 cup of cheese
250 grams of bacon pieces
1 cup of milk
1 tin of corn (425g)
1 tablespoon of melted butter/margarine
4 eggs
1/2 cup of self raising flour

Pre-heat your oven to 180/360 degrees

put the flour and cheese in the bowl

put the corn and the bacon in the bowl

put the butter, milk and eggs in the bowl
(I suggest breaking the eggs and getting rid of the shell lol)

put the lid on the bowl
(very important you make sure the lid is on right trust me)

now get your teenager (or yourself) to shake the bowl like crazy
I find 30 sec to a minute is enough

now pour the mixture into your flan
and place in the oven at 180/360 degrees for 30 minutes

The top should be a beautiful golden colour.

Here is my serving suggestion

Light and Easy
Not a lot of washing up either YAY!
p.s. Jack calls this egg pizza

More Fun with 2

Caught myself another Mermaid
I think this one's a swimmer

It's no fun on your own...

It's good to have friends

"These are awesome!"

"Check them out"
hehehe :)

So my friend Kate (terribly talented friend) has been making Mermaid dolls.
They are so cute (look here)
Anyway seeing as she was kind enough to post a link for the mermaid pattern 
I decided to give it a go.
 Isn't she cute

I thought she should have a photo shoot.

 Down at the warf

 Being a mermaid is a dangerous thing

 at home under the sea

 Thought we would try a little land exploration

Such a great little model!
Want to make one of your own?
Here is the link
Now I'm off to make some more I think :)

Done and Dusted

Well I'm back from my trip to Adelaide.

After all my worry and anxiety mum liked her quilt.

Looks nice in her room too.

The birthday party was a big success as well.
Now back to real life.

What an old bag (not you mum hahaha)

I wasn't going to post pictures of this quilt until after Mums birthday on Friday but couldn't help myself.
The deal with this quilt was
Mum picked 14 different prints, 25cm of each
I wasn't to use white ( that material is cream with a pattern)
I put it together then pulled it apart and started again :(
I am now happy with it
I hope she is
 Just a little on the back this time
 I thought I would add the shadow of my clothesline lol

Here it is on my bed.
Mum wanted a bag as well
 Yes that is a pocket
And its reversible.
I also made the straps tie up so she could adjust the length
Now off to Adelaide to deliver it
Wish me luck
