It's Tuesday.............

The Purple Drink............

Things have been a bit slow around here.  I am quilting, staying in a lot because it is too hot to go anywhere.  I found a wonderful drink.  It is called - Purple Power Breakfast Shake.  I have changed it up a bit.  The recipe called for a half banana.  What do you do with the other half?   I added it to the shake.  I am going to give you my recipe, it is really good, try it, you will like it.

Purple Drink
1 Banana
2/3 c frozen blueberries
1 teaspoon Sweet Treat (see below)
1 cup coconut milk
1 Tbs almond butter

Put it all in a blender, hit the switch, blend until smooth. 

Sweet Treat - This is a Louisiana thing.  It is cinnamon sugar with pure vanilla.
You can purchase it from
Cajun Power Sauce Mfg.
10218 LA HWY 82
Abbyville, LA 70510
or at  www.cajunpowersauce.com


If you follow my blog you know that I have been working on "fast" quilts and trying to use up stash.  This is one of those quilts.  It is not really fast, and the reason is that I spend a lot of time trying to decide on which fabric goes where.  The blocks are 8 inches square and there are 4 rows on my design wall.  Two are sewn together.  There will be 7 rows when finished.  I think when the borders are on this quilt it will be a super scrappy quilt.  Not a true scrappy but a "Sharie" scrappy.

I am about finished with my Nebraska trip.  I still have pictures of the quilt museum.  I am going to put some of them in here as small pictures.  You can click on them to make them larger.

A trip is being planned.  It will be later in the summer or early fall.  Go west young woman, go west.  
Hope all is well with you.

At the International Quilt Center and Museum at Lincoln, NE in one of their galleries on display was a group of Indigo Quilts.  They had a very nice wall with the description of the process of making Indigo.  This was very interesting since Indigo has been around for a very long time.  They had several quilts displayed and  I will show you

four of them. 

I have had a busy week quilting.  I do not have anything ready to show you.  Next week, I should have a few things to the point of taking a picture, hopefully.

The weather, if you care, is hot.  It is typical southern Louisiana.  We have had several thunderstorms pass through over the last few days.  They say we may get more later today.  It is keeping the grass green. 

Hope you all had a good week .....................
