Quilt pieced by Hamels

easy raspberry trifle

1 box Betty Crocker® white angel food cake mix
1 1/4cups cold water
2 cups boiling water
1 box (8-serving size) sugar-free raspberry-flavored gelatin
2 packages (10 oz each) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
3 containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original red raspberry yogurt


1. Move oven rack to lowest position (remove other racks). Heat oven to 350°F.
2. In extra-large glass or metal bowl, beat cake mix and cold water on low speed 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan. Do not use fluted tube cake pan or 9-inch angel food (tube) cake pan, or batter will overflow.
3. Bake 37 to 47 minutes or until top is dark golden brown and cracks feel very dry and not sticky. Do not underbake.
4. Immediately turn pan upside down onto glass bottle until cake is completely cool, about 1 hour. Run knife around edges; remove from pan. Tear cake into about 3/4-inch pieces.
5. Pour boiling water on gelatin in large bowl; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add raspberries. (If desired, remove several raspberries and reserve for garnish.) Refrigerate gelatin mixture about 15 minutes or until thickened but not set.
6. Layer half each of the cake pieces, gelatin mixture and yogurt in 3-quart glass bowl; repeat. Garnish with reserved raspberries. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm. Cover and refrigerate any remaining dessert.

one more day

and it's summer holidays! woo hoo! Our youngest, M, he graduated from Kindergarten today(and yes I cried!) Our oldest, A, he wrote his last exam last Wednesday so he's been out for a week already. J, our second, he left Tuesday night with his best friend's family for a camping trip so only B will be going to school tomorrow and we are done done done!

These are the 2 other teacher cards I made this year. I really love this Bella

And the winner of June's Tempting Tuesday is Jennifer from Olde Towne Quiltery Please send me your mailing info Jennifer and which card you would like. Thanx for playing everyone!

wordless wednesday

tempting tuesday!

comment on THIS post and be entered to win your choice of any card I posted in the month of June. Good luck!

i had so hoped

that I could finish my Bistro quilt for the quilt challenge, but it won't happen. I went to buy some fabric for the borders and this Moda line isn't available for sale until Fall!(except for charm squares and jelly rolls that is) The pattern calls for a piano key border using the remaining jelly roll strips but I want a solid border *sigh*

But now I can get started on B's quilt for his birthday(which is next week lol!!)

snack saturday

OREO Layered Ice Cream Squares

12 OREO Cookies, crushed
4 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
1 pt. (2 cups) fresh raspberries, crushed

1 LINE 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Spread cookie crumbs evenly onto bottom of prepared pan.
2 TOP with ice cream; spread gently to form even layer in pan. Spoon raspberries over ice cream; cover.

it's that time of year again

to say good-bye to school and hello summer(if it ever arrives here!) And I realized last night that I hadn't made a card for A's teacher yet and today was/is his last day of school-oops! And I was rushing so not only is the card dark but it's blurry too *sigh* Sorry!!

my new favorite

Bistro by Moda

Cindy's Bramble Rose quilt

Check out Cindy's pictures on her blog as well. She added pearl buttons to the flower than washed the quilt to get the raw edge appliqué to fray. I love how this turned out, and it wasn't nearly has hard as I thought it would be

quilt monday

the 90 minute quilt

and first one in the quilting challenge. In all honesty, this quilt was soooooo simple, it shouldn't even count! I literally pieced it in 90minutes(maybe even less) The blocks were all previously cut. A dear cousin is turning 40 this weekend and loves to nap-what could be more perfect than a snuggly flannel quilt?

Happy Father's Day

I made this card in May's card club as well. love the stitching detail on it. sorry about the light in the picture, we finally have sun here!

a quilting challenge

Peg at Happy in Quilting has issued the challenge of 5 quilt tops(flimsies) to be completed by July 31st(of this year lol!!) I signed up, how about you?

snack saturday

Summery Strawberry Tiramisu


* 6 cups (1.5 L) strawberries (about 11/2 lb/750 g)
* 3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
* 1/4 cup (50 mL) orange juice
* 1 pkg (250 g) light cream cheese, at room temperature
* 1 can (425 g) custard
* 1 cup (250 mL) whipping cream
* 1 298-g frozen pound cake, thawed
* 1/2cup (125 mL) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Rinse strawberries in a colander and remove stalks. Finely chop strawberries and place in a medium bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) sugar and all the orange juice; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Then beat in custard until smooth.
3. In another large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat whipping cream just until fluffy (when you lift the beaters, the pointy bits of cream should stay straight up). Gently stir whipped cream into cream cheese mixture; cover and refrigerate.
4. Cut cake into 3H x 1 x H-inch (9 x 2.5 x 1-cm) strips and arrange side by side on bottom of a 13 x 9-inch (3-L) shallow dish. Top with strawberry mixture. Sprinkle half the chocolate chips over strawberries, then top with cream cheese mixture and remaining chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
