Day 3, Sunday

Well folks, still no quilting, but stay tuned - we did go to some quilt shops, that's coming up in a couple more days....

Sunday was another lazy day for us all. The biggest plan was to make a big breakfast! When you are feeding around 14 people, that's no small feat! Anna made scrambled eggs and something else that I can't quite make out in the photo below. Care to enlighten us, Anna?!And I made Dutch Babies. Otherwise known as popeye pancakes, aka popovers, aka many other names! Delicious with syrup and powdered sugar, or fruit and cream...or..or..you get the point :)Click on that picture and make it big so you can see the Dutch Babies in all their glory - go on - I know you want to....yes they are yummy and EASY to make - so much easier than standing there flipping pancakes. Do you know how long pancakes for 14 would have taken?! Everything was delicious and I ended up making another batch of the Dutch Babies when the older boys decided to arise and grace us with their presence ;)

While the Dutch Babies were cooking, I took photos of Anna's backsplash. As well as being a talented quilter, she also paints murals, and changed her normal every-day backsplash to something amazing...


Here are some others she has in her home...

Yes she takes orders and yes I will accept a commission ;)
