Lap Quilt & Coffee

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:

Tickle Too

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.

mmm.... enjoy
