Best baked drumsticks

Image
I was super excited to find these at my local supermarket today. I was hoping to find some on sale! I bought two packages and made this with the first one.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Empty drumsticks into a big bowl. Add: salt sprinkle liberally, pepper sparingly, paprika medium shake enough to color chicken, and garlic powder. (If you like to measure exactly too bad, lol! But if I had to guess, I'd say 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of paprika, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. I like garlic!) Mix together until coated. Lay in pan. I used my cast iron. No grease needed. Bake for 45 minutes. Check temperature, when it reaches 185 degrees it's done! I checked it after 35 minutes and checked it every 10 minutes after that.

These will feed me all week! Hubby likes the white meat, but I'm at the point that I can't stand it anymore, so these are all for me!





Not bad at all. $3 for a week's worth of meals!

Fantastic fat quarter win!

Image
This is the second month on a row that I've won the fat quarter drawing at my local quilt guild meeting. Last month was for a checkered gingham pile. This month's theme was red, white, blue or patriotic. I just had a feeling when I went there tonight that I would win the pile and I did!!

Then on top of that, I won a door prize of charm packs.

There are so many projects that I want to make but never seem to have the fabric for. Now I do!

Here are a few projects I want to do-

Hot dog pot holder pattern- it arrived last week and I'm quickly learning to read the instructions first!!! Especially when it says to read BEFORE cutting out the material. Lol.



Next is this cute country pouch. Using homespun material which just happens to be on sale at the local quilt shop.

Pic coming soon!



After that, these adorable pouches. I have never seen such cute zippers before!!!


I'll post pics of my fat quarter and door prize win soon!

Hexies

Image
During the last quilt show, a lady was demonstrating how to make these cute hexies. They are a blast to make. I like hand sewing projects. She gave me the middle one to use for a sample. But you cut out the pattern pieces which is a large hexagon and a small one. With the small sized you also cut out a piece of batting. Then place it on top of the larger piece wrong sized one. Then fold the edges up twice and pin. Sew in place. You can use a machine but I prefer to sew by hand. Connect to make whatever project you want. The piece alone is large enough to be a coaster.




If you would like me to mail you a pattern for this, send a self addressed stamped envelope to me. Pm for address. If you want an image to be seen in the center, follow the instructions I'll enclose.

I'll have to see if I can figure out how to make a PDF copy of the pattern for those with a printer.

Purse #10

Image
Purse making has been going slowly lately. I still plan to finish 9 more by September.

Here is the last one I made recently. I ordered some webbing from here to use for the straps. I like this company!!


Well I can't seem to find the almost done picture so this will have to do for now. I'm hoping to sew in the straps this week.
