From Plain Jane...to Night out!

Plain shirt
I've been looking at my closet at the same old stuff. I grabbed one of my plain V Neck shirts and added an applique.

Sewing on the Applique
I keep a stash of buttons, so I grabbed some of those.
Sewing on buttons
I believe I paid $5.99 for this shirt; now its looks like more.
Love this!

My Migas

Blog by Ruth Yoder
I needed a quick lunch with some substance, so I made this. Would be great for a brunch as well.

3 Corn Tortillas -Cut into strips
1 green onion, sliced thin
1 Jalapenos diced
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese
2 Tbsp. Shredded Sharp Cheddar
Sour Cream

Fry the torillas in oil until they are golden but still soft.
Add onion and jalapenos and saute for two minutes.
Add the beaten eggs and cook until they are almost set, stirring occasionally. 
Spread cheese on top of eggs and cover the pan. 
Cook until cheese is melted.
Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Happy Cow Pillow

My babe's new favorite pillow
Searching through my stash of craft items, I found my soft cow applique. I sewed this on. Actually lots of fun to do.
Then grabbed some felt and made a C for my baby and tossed on a strong button. I then sewed my two pieces together and stuffed in some poly-fil.
I put a ribbon in between the seam, and sewed some lines to close it all up.
It is my girl's favorite pillow, and she's learning about animals, letters, and the feel of different textures.

Christmas is coming soon; I hope everyone is doing well and fitting in all the fun!

My Baby Girl's Christmas Dress

Blog by Ruth Yoder
I found the pattern here:
Thanks Rae! 

I still had to make the pattern bigger, but it worked out.

I didn't have any bias tap, so I put in a ribbon.  I then topped it off with one of the flower pins that I made. 
On the side, which you can almost see in the picture, I put a Pink Button. So cute!

I did this on Sunday, seeing as there was a blizzard here in the Midwest.  I hope everyone was safe!

Sweet Potato Latkes

 Sewright-Blog by Ruth Yoder
Sweet Potato Latkes

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (equals about 4 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp. Applesauce
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • ½ small onion, grated
  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Sprinkle of black pepper
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Sour cream as “garnish”.

In a bowl, stir together potatoes, green onion, onion, apple, egg, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the bisquick mix and stir to combine.
Heat oil in a deep skillet over moderate high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4 or 5, spoon a large spoonful of the mixture into the oil and lightly flatten.
Reduce heat slightly and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer latkes with spatula to a plate layered with paper towels.
Once they sit for a moment or two and drain, transfer them to a cookie sheet. I keep them warm in the oven, till I serve them.

These are really good! I've had white potato ones before, but these are much better for you and have more flavor.
