  •   pinksuedeshoe I made the coconut flour brownies you posted a bit ago for family dinner on Sunday. My MiL took one look at them and said "well those look disgusting." But I liked them. So did Scott. And that's all that matters anyway. :) 2d
  •   poppyprint @pinksuedeshoe ouch! I dust them with icing sugar - they are an acquired taste, I will admit! 2d
  •   pinksuedeshoe Haha. I subbed out the sugar for erythritol, because Scott soesnt so grain or sugars, not even natural ones at all except Saturdays. And he loved them. We are getting good at the acquired taste thing. Next time I'll use darker chocolate and maybe more vanilla.... Or peanut butter... :) 1d

poppyprint Early morning means reading in bed. It's only been 14 years since I pledged to make curtains for our east-facing bedroom windows. That's ok. I like quilting and waking up early in summer more than sewing curtains. 2d
  •   emmaahjorth Hehe i haven't made curtains for the living room yet and we have lived here for four years. :) the bedroom, however, have two layers to keep the sharp morning sun out. 2d
  •   pennydog Pin a quilt over the window! That's what we do when Alex is working nights as our blinds aren't thick enough 2d
  •   sewbeait I so dislike curtains 2d
  •   sindyzelezen Did I loan you his third one? "up and down"? Loaned it to someone but can't remember who... 2d
  •   poppyprint @sindyzelezen yes, I have your copy! 2d
  •   sindyzelezen Aah - ok, I was beginning to think I was losing my mind 2d

  •   poppyprint @dvbooty but what do you do with them? I don't really want to rub that on my sensitive skin. 1w
  •   dvbooty I dont rub them on my skin...I rub my clothes w them n put in my pockets if they are really bad I rub my hair w them...I havent been bitten since I started doing that!!! 1w
  •   poppyprint @dvbooty okay, thanks!!! The cabin walls and doors have openings and mossiez can get in. I'll bring a sheet to rub on my hair before bed! 1w
  •   dvbooty bring more than that!!! ...put 3 or 4 under the sheets and one in your pillowcase...when we camp out I do that and I swear it works!!! :-) 1w
  •   dvbooty also dont use scented lotion or perfumes or deodorants..or dark clothes..they are attracted to that!!! 1w
  •   happysewlucky @bobbyvonsandwichface has an app that plays a high frequency sound that scares them away. Hard for the human vest to hear. Totally non-toxic! 1w
  •   happysewlucky "Ear" not vest. He says to search "mosquito" in the App Store. 1w
  •   rstogether @happysewlucky I'll try that, and the bounce sheets, and Krista's stuff, plus I bought some natural stuff. I am a mosquito magnet, and I'm allergic (I think they know). Everyone else can breathe easy when I'm there, as I am a mosquito free buffet. 1w

poppyprint #mymostcherishedquilt is also the most difficult to photograph. I haven't shared it here before. It is a whole cloth Queen Anne's star pattern all hand quilted by my mom for my 40th birthday. There are over 450 hours of stitching in this beauty. My mom can pack 10 stitches on an 11 between: she runs 8 or 10 needles at a time towards herself in a 10" square q-snap frame. She's an amazing traditional quilter. She didn't pick up quilting until her 50's, after I'd left home for the west coast, so she didn't teach me, but rather inspired me to learn how to do it as well. @traceyjayquilts 1w
  •   harmonyandrosie That really is quite something. Beautiful work! 1w
  •   poppyprint @pippaspatch oh my gosh Pippa, that's lovely! I will let her know! Stick with it - any creative work has ups and downs, big successes and small set backs. We're bombarded daily with beautiful things other people make and sometimes it all feels like a race. I hope you find a happy place with your quilting work 1w
