Fun fabrics at Jean's quilt shop in Castroville

Natalie and I saw this quilt at Jean's fabric store in Castroville, Texas and immediately thought of Meghan. Mostly the colors. What do you think of the quilt or the fabrics?
I guess Meghan isn't into quilts. It's just the colors that she likes not the patterns.

Menu Plan Monday - 15-21 Mar 2010

Wow, I haven't done a Menu Plan Monday with organizer junkie for a long time but here is the menu list for this week:

Monday: Chicken with Couscous
Tuesday: Hawaiian Hamburger
Wednesday: Tuna Casserole - Saunders family cookbook
Thursday: 20 min Chicken Parmesan
Friday: Quick, Homemade Hamburger Soup
Saturday: Left over soup and dessert Crepes
Sunday: Hamburger Stroganoff over noodles

PS. I was slow with this one so it wasn't posted on the website. I just put it up anyway because these recipes were awesome. I tried 3 new recipes and they were great. I want to be able to find them again so this is a good way not to loose them.

Learning to add blinkies

I have two new links on my blog because I was trying to fix Victoria's link. I added the Moda button and compared the code and was able to fix it. Yeah, we can now link to SweetPTreasures. I also found a tutorial for adding blinkies at Cen's Loft . It was very helpful so I tried it by adding her blinkie to my page. Yes I am experimenting and learning at the same time! It's fun. Apparently you can back date posts by clicking post option at the bottom left of the post you are working on and changing the date . . . imagine that.

New blog background for SweetPTreasures

This is a start. She seems to like this color and it goes with her logo. I tried putting butterflies with it but it didn't look right so this is where I am so far.

This spacer is saved as a gif . . .it worked!!! Thanks Meghan for the tip.
Credit goes to Mindy Terwassa for the paper in the background.

Recipe Challenge

Thanks to Katie, I plucked up some nerve and entered this page in a Recipe Challenge at Scrap That Idea. I feel like a real amateur since this is only my third template page. It is a learning curve but it is fun. The emphasis of Mel's challenge was on journaling. It was fun to put words to this picture.
