    QuiltE I like your Egg Muffin recipe, might have to try that for when I am "home alone" and don't feel like cooking (which is all the time) cause there is too much quilting to do

    Yes, Canadian Bacon is cured meat, very special; little pricey, not too bad. Its often served on pizza here or in casseroles like for breakfast. Do tell them, QuiltE, what it is.

    Yes, all egg-actly recipes are welcome. Wish you all were closer and we would share. When my Father lived in Las Alamos, NM, he welcomed his MIL bringing him a suitcase of Iowa eggs...fresh...when she came by bus to visit. He would sit down and eat them by the dozen...Old memories of an era gone by. Even took my feed store man 14 dozen, just to reduce the number I had on hand...after all its his fault for selling me the feed!!

    Dublb, what special pictures and memories!!! Neat quilt too...a treasure for ever.

    Bev, what precious pics of you and DGD--I love the one with your hands guiding hers.

    QE, you and QNS have made me hungry for eggs & bacon! I'm off to work and just had my usual breakfast of tea & oreos (nurses really eat healthy!!).

    Have BB blocks ready to mail out Monday. I made so many (my insecurities LOL)that I'll have to make another quilt (or put them in The Box). Also got the third border on PC. It's been too cold to go out so I've hibernated in my sewing room. Damn--work gets in the way; I could have finished my last boder today.

    Have a good day, ladies.

    QNS growing up we lived at the top of a hill and down in the valley was what we called the Bacon Factory, it was really KR Darling Downs Bacon Factory and when they were cooking we could smell it. My grandfather had a friend who was a pig farmer and we used to use his shareholder number and buy direct from the factory. I still love KR hams and bacon.
    We also had a lot of chickens and ducks and eggs were always plentiful, we supplied the whole street with fresh eggs. Food always seems to evoke wonderful memories from my childhood, my grandmother was a fantastic cook and she was always baking sweet treats.

    ha! Of course, you can use Ausse Bacon or Nederlands!!

    Perhaps you know our Canadian Bacon as ........ Back Bacon or Pea Meal Bacon???

    Traditional Bacon is from the side ... and less meaty, more fat.
    Whereas the Back Bacon has very little fat .... so pretty much all meat!
    It's cured in the same way as the Side Bacon.

    I seldom buy side bacon .... and both can be used in the same way.
    If you haven't had it, go out in search of, and join me for Breakfast for Dinner sometime!

    Totally my choice, instead of eating grease!!!!!




    MiraB ... yup, that's often when I use those frozen muffys. Or even with my afternoon tea. The protein is a good pick me up ........ and certainly healthier than some of the other grab 'n go things I'd munch on!!!

    QuiltE....it's so nice to have you back from your wanderings. You bring such a wonderful "flavor" to the group! Between you and QNSue, we would all be waddling if the RV was for real. Such good sounding stuff.
    dubib...she will never forget those moments of learning to sew with DGM and that quilt will go with her wherever she goes. Such patience you have.
    mirabelle...thanks for the glimpse into your growing up years. You have a bit of country in you too. I have all of the compass blocks saved thanks to you.
    Jan...good progress for you on the PC quilt and BBs. Mine are sitting right by my sewing machine calling to be finished but right now I'm finishing up the blocks for the mystery quilt I'm working on. I love how it's turning out and will post pictures later.
    I did stop at my LQS yesterday to get some machine needles. I've been using up some of what I got before I knew better that topstitch gives me the best results. I had just put in a metallic needle which I know has a similar shaped shaft and eye but doesn't give the same results. They have gotten in so many new fabrics...I just wandered around and soaked in the beauty, enjoyed the friends I found there, and managed to escape with only a few more FQs to add variety in my blue and white Ocean Waves quilt.
    carrie...do you get Theads of Times newsletter? They have both Janome models you are looking at for a very good price. They could ship it to you too.

    QuiltE, the muffin recipe is a success!! Tried them this morning and they were very good. Dh agreed if I put them in the freezer, he would microwave them and eat them instead of any sweet treat!! I used to make similar thing with bacon around the outside ring of the individual muffin section. I find Cottage Bacon here, which is the shoulder of the pork, and not the underside of the belly or side. I used dh soy milk in them, broccoli, cheese, and Jimmy Dean precooked sausage links cut up into the mixture. Also I put some shredded hash browns in the bottom of the muffin sections. In my green beans in the old dutch oven, I use salt pork...cut the rind off, and slice it and fry it in the dutch oven until brown then put the green beans in it.

    Anael, I will check out your source as soon as I can.

    Ggal--I do get the TofT newsletter but hadn't looked at the last one. I will have to call and see if they still have that 6600 and what shipping would be. Do you know if they have someone go over their used machines before re-selling? I would like to buy local, but at the same time if I can find a good price on a machine from another trustworthy shop I will consider that too.

    No sewing yet this week. Maybe this afternoon. DH was home M-T. I worked Wed and then brought 3yo nephew home with me. We are taking him home this morning and getting a few groceries. Gone all day tomorrow for an archery tournament. Next week should be better for sewing.

    Hope all have a great day!

    I downloaded the rest of the Compass Blocks so I'm ready to go...

    Dublb, Your DGD will treasure that "oh so cute" quilt forever...

    I'm going to check out that egg muffin recipe...it's amazing what you can do with eggs. my favorite is baked custard...second favorite is bread pudding...

    Carrie...I think Bill goes over all of the trade-ins before they put them on sale. The 6600 is $899 and the 7700 is $1899. Remember the 7700 has the larger harp. The newest one that just came out is a quilting machine, 8200 with fewer stitches, no magnifier, no large pedal but most of the other features of the 8900 that came out in October and is about $2200. So many things to consider and $$$$ in hand have to drive the selection. Have fun.

    My Bernina went to repairman It sounded like an old truck so something is wrong! I still have my Brother but I find it hard to sew 1/4" seams on that machine. I'm so used to sewing with the Bernina.

    Yes we do dublb!

    I'm running out of scraps! I'm cutting 1 1/4" strips from my scraps for log cabin blocks. I saw a quiltpattern today and I like it. 52 log cabin blocks but I don't have enough scraps. Does that mean I have to get back to quilting and create more scraps?

    Carrie I hope you are able to get the machine you want, always fun to have a new sewing machine to play with.

    Anael keep sewing, I have just emptied my scrap bins, made 84 QAYG blocks but I like the idea of Log Cabins.

    QuiltE and QNS keep cooking we will all meet in the RV for brunch

    Aneal, if you are knowledgeable about cast iron skillets, that is basically what the dutch oven is with a lid on it; I use it on my cooktop and in the oven. I can brown my meat, then add other things, continue to cook it on the cook top or put it into the oven to bake at an even rate of heat, it flavors the food very well. Guess I need to take a picture of it and post it. Very similar to what the chuck wagon cooks put over the outside fire to cook in. Or to bury it in hot coals of fire and let it simmer all day for the cowboy's supper meal. RFD TV station (Rural ??) did cooking over the fire in one of its scheduled programs for awhile.

    Helped out the LQS this afternoon....helped a lady figure out how much of what for her pattern of queen sized quilt for a wedding gift...and then picked out things to make my own donation to the shop....owner was so nice to both of us...she gave us 30% off each piece we purchased. Adopted PC gd will get more horse fabric....with the next shipment at the end of January along with some red and white heart fabric. That was after we had made a 46 round trip to my hometown for dh cable to operate his monitor..he had to have it NOW. . .or yesterday. Solution solved. Then he treated me to lunch at the B & B One of a Kind tea room. I ate their Kansas City Stew...hamburger with vegetables in a soup. When I did get back home, I had to put together northern beans and ham for a late supper tonight...by request from dh.

    LQS owner loved my BB and loved seeing them...gave me her 2 cents opinion on several projects that helped bounce around thoughts I had about them. She is also a good neighbor to us. and that is a two way road here...another neighbor dented up our mailbox this afternoon, but dh fixed that up again, so everything is OK.

    I finished my BBs!! They were just what I needed ta play with this last month. A true joy ta do. I cut 'em a li'le bit big so that ya'll can cut 'em down ta fit. I'd rather they be too big than too little. I coffee stained 4 o' 'em for the 4 who wanted cream or tan. My fabric came in white.
