What a difference a week makes

A week ago we were in the midst of our largest snow of the season and this week we are enjoying spring like weather - supposed to have thunder storms this afternoon -  and the huge amounts of snow are gone!  All in one week!  Guess that's what they mean by northern Michigan weather being so changeable.

Here are some more pictures of our great "Quilt Away" weekend.  The first one is a group picture - we had two attendees missing from the picture - Nancy and Vicki - next time I will get the picture sooner and I will move the chairs and tables, etc - but they add some character to the picture - don't you think?

This is Nancy - working dilligently on her project.

This is "sister Amy" - not a nun - just always referred to as sister Amy.  Amy and Nancy are sisters - have been quilting for just a couple of years but boy are they making up for "lost" time.  They are creating some beautiful quilts!

And as anyone that visits Hearts To Holly at Chatter Time or any special events knows - this is my sister Viv who provides us with scrumptous treats and our weekend was no exception - don't those chocolate covered berries look great?  And they were too!

Viv made us some great baked oatmeal for our Sunday breakfast and as promised here is the recipe -


3 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup dried cranberries


In large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.  Beat in milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.  Stir in cranberries, spread into a 7 x 11 baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  You can mix this up the night before and keep in regrigerator to bake the next morning - just add about 10 minutes extra to the baking time.   Enjoy!
