FABRIC COLLAGE QUILTS
This is definitely eye candy. I’d love to attend her retreat.
What a pretty pincushion! Almost too pretty to stick pins in it.
Lots of patterns to download from McCalls.
NEW BOM – HAND EMBROIDERED CROSSES
This is the first posting of twelve. It’s going to be beautiful!
Janet does a very different take on a hexagon or Grandmother’s Flower Garden. This is SEW cute!
QUILTING EYE CANDY FROM DOWN UNDER
These Aussie gals do some great work. I love to see what other quilters have done.
I just had to post this picture for all of you. This quilt (yes, it’s a quilt) was one of three winners in a Quilts for Mother contest. I think I would do physical harm to my daughter if she did a quilt with ME like that.

WHAT’S FOR DINNER (OR MAYBE BREAKFAST)
Cinnamon Roll Muffins
Much easier to make than actual cinnamon rolls, these quick-fix muffins have a similar great taste! The delicious aroma will sure to wake everyone with a simple smile on their face! Serve warm for the best flavor.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400⁰F. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and whisk well. Make a well in the center and add eggs, milk and oil. Stir until thoroughly moistened; do not over beat. Batter will be thick. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full or use paper liners. Spoon a dollop of topping onto the center of each muffin. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until done being careful not to let topping burn. Remove from pans immediately and allow to cool slightly on a wire rack. Drizzle each muffin with a glaze of 2/3 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 tsps. of milk blended thoroughly and dropped with a fork.
Yield: about 10 muffins.
Enjoy your week!
