Fat Quarter Shop Sew Along


Today I am sharing the tree skirt I made with the 
Fat Quarter Shop sew along.
Below I have shared my affiliate links to the kit and to the
fabrics I used.
The fabric in the kit was not available at the time I made 
the tree skirt.

Part 1 Sew Along process

Part 2 Sew Along process

I haven't put a hole in the center yet. I'm trying to decide if I want to use it as a table decoration or a tree skirt. I didn't put a slit in it, since we have a fake Christmas tree. I will just slide it over the tree stand if I decide to use it as a tree skirt.

I really enjoyed making this! I learned a lot with this sew along, as it is the first time I picked my own fabrics and it is the first quilt I have completed. Yay me!

Fat Quarter Shop Sew Along

Hello and welcome to my craft room!

Today I am playing along on my first sew along with the 
Fat Quarter Shop!
I am so excited to play along using the Union Square!

I thought this would be fun and give me a chance to try out a new block and get more experience at quilting.

I have a plethora of fat quarters. So, I thought this would be a good place to start. I looked through my stash to find a couple of cuts that would go together, and lucky enough it was one of my favorite colors. 

So here is my perfectly imperfect block!

Here are my two choices

Fabric one all cut

Fabric two all cut

Fabric cut and marked

Starting to go together!

My block completed
YAY! i did it! lol

    Hillshire Farms Premium Carved lunch meat


    Today I am sharing the Hillshire Farms Premium Carved lunch meats.
    I received 2 free coupons, so I could head to my Walmart and pick them up. 
    I purchased the Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham and the Oven Roasted Turkey Breast.

    Don't these look tastey?!

    We like the convenience of these being in their own containers. Which helps to keep them fresh before and after your purchase.
    And the containers are reusable, which helps to keep them out of the landfil.

    The Slow Roasted Seasoned Ham was very good. It tasted like fresh cut ham on Easter day. It didn't taste to salty to us. We used it for sandwiches, roll-ups and salads. It is cut on the thicker side which we enjoyed, it made for a hardy sandwich.

    The Carved Oven Roasted Turkey Breast was cut in nice thick slices as well. It is fresh tasting, but it didn't quite taste like turkey to me. At least not as I had expected. I thought by looking at it, that it would be like a sliced fresh sliced piece of turkey on Christmas day.

    Overall they are convenient and tastey, My family has enjoyed making sandwiches with both the Ham and Turkey. I have even purchased more since they have asked for them.

    Besides for you and your kids lunches, these are also great to take camping, on road trips or a picnic. The slices are perfect to cut up and add to a salad, which is the way I like eat them. They can also be picked up eaten right out of the container.

    We also like that they are 
    • minimally processed
    • all natural
    • no artificial ingredients
    • no added nitrates or nitrites except those naturally occuring in sea salt and celery juice powder.
    If you decide to give them a try come back here and let me know what you thought about the Hillshire Farms Premium Carved 
    lunch meats. If you have already tried them, then add your comments below! I would love to here your thoughts :)

    Die Cuttin Divas guest Diva


    Today I am guest designer over at Die Cuttin' Divas

    The theme is Favorite Color for 
    National Crayon day on March 31st.

    I haven't made a card in a while and I definetly was a little rusty!
    I had this idea in my head, but it just didn't work out 
    like I wanted it to!

    But here is my card anyway, lol

    I used my Cricut and cut out the crayons from
    "Simpy Charmed" and used a second layer to mount
    the crayons on to.

    So in case you haven't figure it out yet, my favorite
    color is pink and purple!

    Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head over to the 
    Die Cuttin' Divas and enter your card, tag or altered project!
