    QNS - you made me think of my mother with her bean soup. She also used Great White Northern Beans, and added Pinto Beans with her ham!

    JanRN ... yippee!!! now you can quilt your little ♥ out this weekend. Well, at least to get that border on ... and to package up the BBs. Don't forget to sign your blocks before you mail them off. Great breakfast ... remember that milk is Nature's most nearly perfect food!

    MiraB ... When else, but breakfast time?? Oh that'd be a wonderful smell to have in the neighbourhood. I think many of us have good memories that are food based. And I see your country admissions are surfacing!!!

    GGal ... I know, I'm a Chatty-Cathy! I should be around pretty much for the rest of the winter. Out-of-town work is usually minimal at this of the year and will pretty much be here in the office. Maybe the odd day or two, but never long stretches. So you are STUCK with me! The good news is that should leave me with more quilting time!! Yipppeeeee!!! Gosh GGal, you're getting me keen to drive to Indi for one of those machines! Quite the price difference from here.

    CarrieM ... I still love my 6600, and while I'd like the larger harp of the 7700, I don't think there's enough benefits to switch. Plus there are some features on the 6600 and not on the 7700, that I am not willing to give up. I keep hoping they will come out with a larger opening still in a newer model .... or I bite the big bullet for the Bernina as the BSR has me intrigued, and they do have one with the larger harp.

    QNSue ... I'm glad that the Egg Muffins were a hit! You'll have FUN switching up the add-ins. Haven't done sausages before, and know they'd be good! Likewise the hash browns. Really anything goes! Did I get Brownie Points with your DH? I'll try to get my other recipes and post them for you and everyone ... I'm sure you will like the custard, and am surprised you have never heard of it. I'm wondering if it's got another name in the USA? Glad you got your "quilting fix"!!! Sounds like you have a wonderful LQS to deal with and very personnable.

    Honchey ... Glad that someone else knows what Custard is! And Bread Pudding ... YUM!!! Sorry about your BINGO disappointment. The important part is that you had FUN! So ... are we doing the Compass Blocks for sure?

    Anael ... Bread Pudding has come a long way. Maybe you'd like the updated versions? So do you have a BSR with your Bernina? Do tell me more! Huge price difference to switch to a Bernina for me, so a big hesitation there. Maybe your price differences aren;t as large, being "closer" to the source? Log cabins are always so nice to make, and are so beautiful made with the narrower strips you are using.

    And now ...... another drumroll for another set of BBs done!!!
    Just need to figure out how and where to sign them .... and then I'll dispatch the local Huskies with them to CarrieM!!!

    BTW JanRN ... I too made extra blocks ... and have already decided that I HAVE to make a quilt with them. Plain and simple ... I like them too MUCH and have been playing with them tonight for a quilt layout. Now to do some calculating re fabric and see if I can get what I want. And don't you dare put yours into "that box" .... make a quilt WITH me!

    It's called custard or flan. Hmmm I think that I heard flan had coffee flavor. I'm not sure though. I love custard. I make it w/splenda.

    Same price North of the 49!
    $4 for FQs ... and $16/metre would be the regular prices for most quilting cottons.

    ........... of course, there's always some sales, but you can never count on getting what you want!

    QuiltE - my mom used to make me custard when I was sick. I guess she felt the eggs and milk would be good for me, it seems to me she put nutmeg in it ( or some spice )! I just loved it! I think it could be called a baked pudding??? Oh also, I am so glad we are "stuck with you" for the winter! Miss you when you are away!

    Congrats to those who have finished the BB's. I got another one done tonight as a leader/ender for my Easy Street Mystery quilt.

    Can someone give me the website for those compass blocks? I know I downloaded a few of them, but forgot where I got them! I want to have them all in case we use them for a project in the future.

    Wow $4 is cheap to me as the cost of a FQ over here is between $5 and $7, guess who doesn't buy any fabric locally I just wouldn't have the stash I have if I had to buy everything here. I love love love when Hancock's have free shipping, then my DD and I get on the phone and check out the website and do one big order. They haven't had free shipping for a while so I hope they have it shortly as I am running out of some things.

    For example I like working with Kona Cotton solids and use a lot of cream and black, to buy it at my LQS it is $18 a metre (39inches), if I purchase a whole bolt from Hancock's it costs me landed at my home between $5 to $6. I also like Michael Miller's Fairy Frost range of fabric and it is $28 per metre, again if I purchase from the States it costs me $10 per yard delivered to my door.

    It looks like I didn't get to see all what's been posted!

    QNS, a picture would be nice though I think I know what a Dutch oven is now. Are those the very heavy skillets you're talking about? I guess so. I had two but wasn't able to lift them anymore so I gave them away.

    QuiltE, no BSR and no, prices aren't any lower. As much as I loved my Bernina in the beginning before quilting, I can't get the tension right. It went to the shop at least twice but somehow it's off and it stays off. So I'm considering buying another machine but money is an issue. Weird as I looked at the prices of Janome 7700 and 8200 and the 8200 is cheaper over here than the 7700. Still a lot of money. I might have a talk with my dealer and see what he can do. He's the one who gave me two embroiderymachines to try at home Last time I had my Bernina serviced he gave me a brand new Pfaff (I don't know which one but it was the latest modell with a large harp).

    I found some fabric to cut up LOL. Some from the PC blocks, some from the funky chicken blocks and I did find one yard I don't like and I have no idea why I bought it!

    Bread pudding.......my mom used to throw slices of old bread in boiled milk, some raisins, some sugar and that was it So no bread pudding for me! When I make custard I make it with Splenda too. I love it when it's really cold outside. We used to eat oatmeal porridge in winter, nothing wrong with that. Untill, one day, midst summer when I was 17 I was in hospital after being in a car accident. It was hot and I didn't had anything to eat for 3 days because they were afraid I had a head injury. The 4th day, as breakfast, I got cold oatmeal porridge......YUK YUK. I've never had it again!

    I will be out for most of the day but when I'm back I will print out the foundations of my BB I think it's time to get started. How often have I said this?? LOL

    Carrie...just a note in machines....there is a post in the main topics about the 8900 that you might want to check out. She makes some comments about the 7700 which I didn't know.

    Here's my Custard recipe ... yes basically a baked pudding!
    Yes, totally healthy with all the eggs and milk and easily digested when we were sick little kids! And not a lot of sugar in it.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Baked Maple Custard
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Pour in bottom of each custard dish
    1 tbsp. maple syrup
    (and/or fruit ... or skip this step totally, if you want plain custard)

    Whisk together and pour over maple syrup
    2 eggs
    1-1/4 cups milk
    1/4 sugar (or splenda)
    1 tsp vanilla
    if desired -- nutmeg, cinnamon

    Set cups in baking pan with boiling water to within inch of top of cups.
    Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes til knife inserted comes clean.
    (time will vary depending on size of custard dishes)
    Cool and Chill. Eat as is, or with fresh fruit or fruit compote.
    At serving time, run knife around edge of each cup and invert on dessert plate.

    **I like to eat it still warm from the oven, and then eat the rest chilled later.
    **Custard Pie is nice ... in a pie shell with or without a fruit bottom. I have made it with mincemeat in the bottom for a delicious Christmas dessert.



    I now have visions of all the PC homes taking a trip down memory lane with some custard int he next few days!!!

    I will have to look for maple syrup, I've seen it somewhere but don't remember where.
    Did you make the mincemeat yourself too QuiltE?

    Silly Me!! I had a reply typed ... and proceeded to let it go *poof*!!!
    Now to re-do it!!!

    JeanieG ... Yes, you're stuck with me ... just like glue! Looks like our Moms cooked much the same and with the same strategies!!

    MiraB ... I really haven't got hooked with online ordering. However, you're getting my attention re the price differential. Better for you than me, but still an incentive for me too. If you like MM, check out their Krystal line, with lots of colours. That's what my FWS green borders/sashing was and I can see me using more of it in other projects. And oh, all those Fusion blenders that are in oodles of colour choices too!

    Anael ... thanks for the Bernina and Janome info. I think J have created a lot of confusion with the old/new 7700 being intro'd so close together and so much alike. Likewise, I understand that B has re-intro'd an old model # in a totally different machine. I still love my oatmeal porridge, and even more so if I add some fruit while cooking, or after. Sometimes I add in some cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice too! And if sweetness is wanted, maple syrup is the best! Good and loyal Canadian, aren't I? Yea for you and your "new" cut up material for those logs!!! Have FUN when you are out and about!!

    GGal ... thanks for the tip to Carrie. I went on over and will now follow.

    CarrieM ... here's the link for that thread
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...05567.html#top
    Have FUN shopping for the machine you want. You do a lot of sewing and I'm sure you will be doing more and more. You should make sure you have one that is going to last you a long time. Will you be keeping the machine you have for your DD to use?

    Anael ... The custard is fine without the maple syrup, but of course, is even nicer with that bit added to it. Plus it makes for a nice presentation when you turn it out at serving time. Mom always made mincemeat. I have done so too, but more so what I do is buy a ready-made mixture and add a bunch more apples, cherries, maybe some nuts and let it brew in the frig til I'm ready to use it for something. Though, that takes some planning ahead!!

    I know that many of you said no-way to applique .... but Never Say NEVER!
    This is so cute and done in little chunks, so maybe some might be interested?
    http://www.sulky-international.de/scripts/clsAIWeb.php?seite_id=200


    I know I am ... and see it as a feasable way to do some applique without a huge commitment.
    And if I didn't finish it all, I could finish up as a smaller project(s).

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeassssssssee?
    Even just a few of you?

    And NO, I am not suggesting this be THE group project ... just one of our many others!

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeassssssssssse again?
    With sugar on it .... or splenda if that would be your pleasure!!!

    This sounds wonderful!! I have some suger free maple syrup & some sugar free Smucker's Jam that I could use for different tastes. I have found that I have ta double my splenda measurements in comparison ta sugar in most recipes. Thiis gonna be good. MMmmmmmm

    I'm not afraid o' applique a'tall. I do have a problem w the idea o' raw edge applique. I can't git passed the idea o' the edges not bein' folded down. LOL This might be just the project ta git me passed that.
    Hmmm I can't git it ta enlarge for viewin'. It is so cute.

    QuiltE that BOM is adorable, would look great in my sewing room, mmmmm thinking about it.

    Anael I wish I had known you were doing Sylvias Bridal Sampler, I have the first 3 or 4 blocks and then it stalled big time. Maybe I need to make it my priority for this year, after:

    Pam Bono's Out of the Darkness,
    Bargello kit I purchased from Keepsake Quilting,
    maybe the Compass Blocks
    the machine embroider butterflies I started
    Marjen for Error machine embroidered quilt that is almost finished
    and I am sure there is another UFO lurking in the cupboard

    Why why why are there so many quilts to be made and only so many hours in a day

    Lots of good chatter today while we tagged along with best friends to Des Monies today. Under impressed by Hobby Lobby, so saved $$$ there.

    QuiltE, I have found when everything I have typed goes "poof", I hit the button to relieve the 'saved' version and it 'pops' back on the screen. Your custard recipe reminds me of Rice Pudding, memories of it with cinnamon and raisins, egg, milk & rice.

    How many UFOs do I have??? Let me count the many projects that need done.....no, that might discourage me completely. Last time I started counting it was up to, well, like 17, and more have been added since. One day at a time. One stitch at a time. First, get the BBs all done, all the slashes sewn for PC quilt, hope the Cripple Creek calls me about the FWQ being machine quilted and its progress.

    QuiltE, your egg recipe is a real home runner hit!! Dh loves it.
