New and Improved Zucchini Alfredo

We are continuing “Zucchini Week” here and so far it is going well! I am still freezing more than we can eat, but it will be good in casseroles and zucchini bread this winter. Tonight we had sausage, potato, and zucchini packets on the grill, but last night my husband wanted my new and improved version of zucchini alfredo. The original recipe is HERE, but we like this one better. It is creamier and the…

Mermaid Friends Quiet Book Page

This is the page where I got a little carried away. Naomi really likes her fish tank (she calls plecostomus “grumpy fish”) and when I came across this old, blue, swirly fabric I immediately though “ocean.” Of course, the tea-dyed muslin (a little off color in these pics) made great sand at the bottom. It also doubles as a little pocket. There is where I got a little carried away. I got out the felt…

Zucchini Pie

It is zucchini season!!! Yay!!! We have an abundant harvest this year, so as a little challenge, I am going to try to make zucchini a different way each night this week. Tonight was zucchini pie! I have posted this recipe before, but I made a few tweaks so I thought I would repost it. Zucchini Pie 4 cup sliced zucchini 1 stick butter 2 eggs 1/4 tsp. pepper 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. oregano…

The PACountryCrafts Fall Collection 2014

There are some big changes coming around here, so I have been kicking it into high gear with my etsy shop lately! I tried to create items that would fit well with traditional fall decor or a more neutral color palette. I still make my pumpkins and indian corn baskets. I also added hand painted signs this year! You can purchase these items HERE in my etsy shop. Leave a comment below and let me…

Paper Dolls Quiet Book Page

The paper doll page was also in Grace’s quiet book. I love this paper doll fabric and it is my older girls’ favorite page. I actually made these pages first and when I went to assemble the book I realized that some of the clothing was missing. They just would not leave it alone! You can read more about how I made this page HERE. It is inspired by THIS tutorial, but I find it easier…

Pie and Ice Cream Quiet Book Pages

Let’s start things off with a little bit of a food theme here, shall we? Yummm… I made a pie page like this for Grace’s quiet book and the “pie filling” is actually leftover fabric from an apron that I made for Naomi a few years ago. So, I had to make another one. It is super easy. I thought the pink gingham was a little bit “tableclothy.” Whoops! I sewed the page on upside…

Getting Ready for Fall

This summer is really flying by! There has been a lot going on around here.  I have been working on a lot of new things for my etsy shop. I plan on expanding things quite a bit this fall. I am working on some fall decor items… I finally got some of my bird art pieces listed: I haven’t been sewing much this week since I finished Naomi’s quiet book, but I did whip up…

Bunting Personalized Quiet Book Cover

I am doing another quiet book series! I made a quiet book for my niece since she liked Grace’s so much. I do really like making these books, so it was a fun project. I debated how to make the cover and I didn’t feel like doing it the same way as I did Grace’s (see it HERE). I came up with the bunting idea and it isn’t exactly the way I pictured it, but…
