Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin....

Oh.... Newsflash....Get our ebooks and epatterns on Craftsy! They're currently a bit cheaper!

Surprisingly enough, to me anyway, I've had a lot of requests to include some of the "skills" I talk about while living a homestead way of life.

Well, ok then! I'm not sure where to start as this is all like breathing to me. But I did roast a turkey earlier this week, so maybe I'll share that, as well as how I deal with my food allergies in everyday baking. Yeah, we'll start with that!

So, starting with this issue, I'll do a "Homesteading Corner" section. I won't go into details about butchering and processing, just the regular stuff.


This week, on our sale page, we have all of our March Themed Patterns, and Quilted Garden patterns on sale. Check them all out on our Sale page, HERE

Remember.... orders over $50.00 are fr** shipping (US only, sorry)

Homesteading Corner....

So about that turkey....

I'm not sure where to begin. This was one of our own turkeys, nice sized, but without the pop up button. (Haven't figured out how to breed that into them yet). Put it in a big roaster pan with a bit of water on the bottom, (breast side up), and some bullion cubes. 325 until it's done. My kids say, "How long is that?" I don't know, until it's done. We like our birds done really well, so when you try to pick it up and it falls apart, it's done.

Remove it to a platter and put it back in the oven to keep it warm. Put the roasting pan on the stove and add a bit more water to it, some parsley and here's where it gets tricky. We're making gravy but I have food allergies. (Can't have any grain, dairy or coffee). So flour to thicken is out. Cornstarch (corn is a grain) is out, so I use almond flour to thicken the gravy. Whisk it in and all is good. Let it thicken, stirring once in awhile and you have gravy!

That's how I roast a turkey.

Quilt Sizes....

Deciding on what size quilt to make is a first step in planning a new project. Wall quilts can, of course be any size you choose. But, if you are making a quilt which will go on a bed you need to make decisions.

Reader's Show and Tell....

My story starts out with my brother serving in the Navy when he was 20. After he served his time, we became a very close family. For the past 20 years he was a long haul truck driver. Dedicated to his employer and always giving 110%.

On July 23, 2014, one day before his 62nd birthday, we received a call at 1:30 am saying that he had been killed. He had been talking with his daughter at 9:00pm and saw that a trucker passing him was looking at oddly, and when  he looked behind him, he noticed that his load had shifted. He ended his phone call, pulled to the side of the road to fix his load when another semi came along hit him and ran over him several time. The trucker had enough compassion in him that he pulled him to the side of the road so no one else would do the same. It has been a difficult road for us, but I knew I wanted to do something as a memory of him for our family members.

As my husband and I arrived one day early for the funeral I went into a fabric store and found a table runner with a military patch on it. I knew instantly that was what I needed to do. I took the idea and made a wall hanging using the military patch, designing a full flag, and inserting his picture at the bottom. That way I will always have him with me.

The pattern comes with a specific military patch, and the hanging hardware that resembles a dog tag.

A portion of all sales goes to the Wounded Warrior Program in his memory.

FR** E-Pattern for March 2015....

Windmill Quilt Pattern

HERE

Unlike ordinary windmill quilts, Kaye Wood's simplified techniques put a new spin on this pattern to make this project a breeze. Beginners will find it easier by adding sashing strips. For the more adventurous, go without the sashing. This project uses Kaye's Starmaker 5 tool to ensure accuracy (sold separately).

We have a new addition on the farm. Kita pestered me and pestered me to get her a playmate, so here she is: Welcome Oakley to our crazy mixed up mess! She is a rescue, of course, and will hopefully love the farm as much as Kita does.
