something going around

 There must be something going around,
I'm still sick, with a cold! yuck!
I haven't even stepped foot in my sewing room today
and went to bed at 8pm last night.

Well yesterday I quilted my neighbors nativity scene quilt/ wall hanging.


I quilted the main parts in a yellowish beige thread, and the border in dark blue, including the background of the nativity scene ( the wise men and the horizon etc.)
Also on the border I quilted these sort of stars and a line to the border.





I figured I'd share my little cappucino recipe, that I make often and have almost been living off of that and hot tea today and yesterday.
It's SO easy, I make this dry batch and when I want to drink some I heat up a cup of water and addpo a heaping tablespoon of this mix.

1 cup powdered creamer
1 cup nesquick choc milk powder
2/3 cup instant coffee ( a nice brand)
1/2 sugar ( I've tried splenda also)

optional ( I don't do these)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
mix all these together and VOILA! there's a nice instant cappucino mix.
Now I'm not a coffee drinker and I love this :-)

I also had to show that I DID help with SOMETHING today,
the kids wanted to carve out their pumpkins, so my husband and I did the carving and the kids did the STICKY messy parts of taking out the flesh and seeds from inside the pumpkins.
here's the end result.
BTW, I told my kids I'm not buying or making the costumes this year, we are really not into halloween, we will go trick or treating around the neighborhood.
So the kids came up with the idea of toilet paper mummies, we'll see how that goes and I guess I'll be the mummy mommy.
