This lovely lap quilt belongs to Sheri. The direction I was given was to pick a pretty panto of my choice. After looking the top over, this fabric caught my eye and I knew that one of my new pantos would be perfect.
I used the Gothic Vine panto, Dream Puff batting and a soft pink So Fine thread. Sherry provided a lovely floral flannel backing so this is one soft and cuddly quilt.
These are some other new pantos I have added to my collection:
Anyone who knows me, knows I love my morning coffee. Sometimes I like s sweet treat of a flavored creamer, but I don't like what they are made from. I came across a recipe for Homemade Coffee creamer from the Mrs Happy Homemaker blog. She has over 2 dozen flavors. I have tried the French Vanilla and the Mocha Almond and have really enjoyed them. (If you don't like the taste of evaporated milk, you may not love them, but I don't find that taste too strong.)
All you need is a can of sweetened condensed milk, milk and your flavoring.
Because a Canadian can of sweetened condensed milk is slightly smaller than the one in the recipe I made the following adjustments to the base recipe:
1 - 300ml (10 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cups milk
flavoring options from Mrs. Happy Homemaker.
