Sunday Stash Report - Week 15

This week I will be colaborating with my friend and talented artist, Mary Persinger-Nease, on our first  Cookbook which we hope to have ready for the Holidays.  What an adventure!!  We are currently at the lake brainstorning, drawing, and figuring out how to select the best of the best from all my favorite recipes  If you have a favorite you want me to include please let me know!! 
We have a working title:

"Pots, Pans, Pictures, and Parties"

We are setting the book up based on life celebrations....parties!!!

Chapters will include:

1. Celebrations - Birthday Parties, Spring Teas (Mother's Day, Gaduations and Derby Parties),
Romantic Dinners (Anniversari es and Valentines Day)

2. Holidays - Celebration Feasts ( Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas), Holiday Cookie Exchange,
Harvest Gatherings (Hay Rides, Apple Picking, Halloween), Summer Fireworks ( Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day).

3.Portable Food for the Taking - Outdoor Feasting (Picnics at the Ball Park, Father's Day Grill, Tailgating before the Big Game), Community Gatherings ( Family Reunions, Church Suppers, Potlucks, Social Clubs), In the Nick of Time ( Unexpected guest for dinner)

4.  Caring for the Ones we Love - Comfort Food for illnesses, Supper for the Family of a New Baby, Housewarming for A New Neighbor, To Show You Care during a bereavment.

WHEWWWW!!!  That's a lot of brainstorming but we like the results so far. Mary is drawing away using anything she sees for inspiration.   It is amazing to see her create such beautiful art.

Today I am joing Judy L at Patchwork Times  for the Sunday Stash Report.

I quilted a top for my mother this week.  She supplied the top and backing fabric.  I used 1 yard from my stash to bind it. 

Today has been a lot of work but we are headed toward finally getting this book written.   Ideas are swarming around our heads like bees. 

We are exploring using some photos in the cookbook along with original artwork.  You may see some of these pictures

We had a great breakfast and lunch during our "working" session!

Happy Trails,
