Quilting is my first love when it comes to sewing. I loooooooove to quilt. So for all of you quilters out there here is a question for you.....when do you quilt?


When you're watching a good movie.
When you're reading a good book.
When you're having a picnic.
When you're sipping red wine (or hot cocoa!) by the fire.
When you're telling ghost stories.
When you're building a fort in the living room.
When the kids are finally in bed.
When it's cold outside.
When you're tired.
When you're sick.
When you've been caught in the rain.
When you finally have time to relax.

These are when some people quilt. I actually do hand piecing when I am riding (not driving!) in the car going somewhere...keeps me from falling asleep. :)

So when do you quilt.......................?????

I posted some of these "lessons" on the blog By Your Hands a few days ago and with Easter coming this weekend I thought I would post them here too for all of you to see. :)

Don't put all of your eggs in one basket.

Walk Softly and carry a big carrot. 

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.

There's no such thing as too much candy.

All work and no play can make you a basket case.

A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention.

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.

Some body parts should be floppy.

Keep your paws off other people's jelly beans.

So I hope we all learned a few "lessons" from the Easter Bunny. :)

Hope you all have a HAPPY EASTER!!

Easter is getting closer and of course our minds go to all the Easter candy we can eat. I found this recipe in The Country Register of Minnesota. I love Reese's peanut butter cups and this recipe shows us how to make homemade one's!!! 

 What you will need:

1 11.5 oz package of milk chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 foil or paper muffin cups

How to make it:

You can trim the muffin cups to half their size if you choose too. 

Put 1/2 of the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave about 2 minutes. 

Spoon melted chocolate into muffin cups. With a spoon smooth the chocolate out evenly bringing it up slightly on the sides of the muffin cup.

Cool in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt together.

Spoon into the cooled, chocolate covered muffin cups evenly.

Melt the remaining chocolate and spoon over the peanut butter. Spread chocolate out to the edges of the cups. 

You can add these yummy homemade peanut butter cups to all the other candy that you will have around the house at Easter. Personally I would rather have the peanut butter cups than all that other candy.....well maybe not all the candy....chocolate can stay!! :)

Have a great week and enjoy your peanut butter cup! :)
