I Like Thursday: Lots to Do

It was a good week - lots to like.  We'll see if I can speed-write another blog post, though, because it's been a busy week as well.

Baked some more.  This mess is an upside-down cheesy biscuit bake (downsized for two).  That topping is bacon, maple syrup and brown sugar.  Decadent.  We had it for breakfast on Sunday.  Recipe is here.

The pattern I won from the last Project Quilting challenge arrived.  It's an interesting design.  I opened it up and it turns out to be a paper piece pattern.  I look forward to trying it out.  


I finished this week's Project Quilting challenge with lots of time to spare.  Have you made quilted postcards before?  I've recently heard of these and decided to try making one.

I have lots of beautiful fabric!  And I'm off to buy some more this weekend - I'm hoping to score some more batik and inexpensive backing fabrics.  I have 2-3 quilts in the works.  

I finished the ornament that I was working on (in pieces here).  Bracing it for baking was almost as much work as creating it in the first place!  I can't show the finished product yet but I will at least tell you what it is:  a Chinese dragon.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.

My sister and I finished playing Riven last night.  I'm trying to load out the next game so we can continue playing the series.  We've been having a blast playing.

I finished reading The Art of Racing in the Rain.  One of the I Like Thursday group recommended the movie - I decided to read the book instead.  A quick, easy read.  A good story - I enjoyed it.

And that's it for now.  Linking up with Not Afraid of Color's I Like Thursday.

Your biscuit bake sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Congratulations on your win from PQ, and I love your latest finish, too. I've never tried crazy quilting or making postcards, but I'm putting them both on my list! I liked The Art of Racing in the Rain, too, both the book and the movie.

The weeks seem to be flying by! Your breakfast looks delicious. Bacon is good on just about anything! I love the pattern you won. I haven't made postcards for awhile. Love how yours came out! I have that book on my to read list!

Yay for the prize! It looks like a beautiful pattern. Lovely crazy postcard too, and can't wait to see your Chinese dragon!

Lots of interesting things here. I got waylaid by following the link for that delicious breakfast dish. You can't go wrong with anything that has maple syrup and bacon in it. A real treat I'm thinking. You will do great with paper piecing that design and how nice to have fabric shopping on your to do list. Something I myself love. A dragon sounds interesting; you are so creative.

For as busy as you say, you are certainly getting lots done. Perhaps your sewing is your busy.
No, I have not sewn a postcard - very small.
