That's pretty damn exciting! Lisa at Coastal Nest honored me with this fantastic award last week (it's the addiction man, I'm behind!) and I need to thank her for it. Shame on me for not acknowledging this sooner.

Donna and I took a beginning sewing class this last weekend. It was held at the Needle & I in Everett. I can't say enough nice things about the ladies of the Needle & I. We loved every part of the class experience here. Preparing us for class, making sure we had everything we needed, and the class instructor was
We will for sure be taking more classes from these ladies.
Here is a recap on how the class went for Donna;
Oh shoot! I wasn't suppose to cut that
Oh shoot! The birds aren't going to go the right way
Oh shoot! I think I sewed this wrong
Oh shoot! That is going to look weird. Oh, well I guess the cat won't care.
All and all we had a great time. We could have sat there and sewed longer. It was fun to chat with the other ladies, and just get to sit and visit for a few hours. Not to mention..............We are learning to sew!
Class II is this next Saturday.
I bought a ham this last week and it was very good. We ate on it all week.
I had a little bit left and The Hubs wanted navy beans and ham for dinner.
I think my mom makes the best navy beans and ham ever so I called for the recipe.
I was told there is no recipe, only how she puts it together.
It was so dang good I thought I would share it with you.
Cook your navy beans as directed on package or........use precooked canned.
This Martha Stewart cast iron pot is the best thing I ever bought! I love it and use it more than I thought I would. Also this aqua color makes all food look fantastic.
