Rain Rain Rain - Good for Being in the Quilting Mode

We are expecting storms all day.  Some showers have been through already but we are waiting for

the big blasters to hit soon.  I will work on finishing up the back of the Halloween quilt and I may even work on the frame a bit, seeing if I have a tension or not.  First though, I have to go to the grocery, I need flour for the shrimp crepes I want to make for dinner with that leftover shrimp.

Crepes sound so elegant!  Ann gave me a crepe maker and I finally had a chance to try it out yesterday.  I thought it was going to be complicated, actually it was anything but.

I practiced by taking some finely chopped strawberries, put them into the delicate crepe I had just made and added some whipped cream in the aerosol can........we call it kxsss kxsss. (that is the sound it makes when it comes out!  Try to say it and you will see.  I wasn't quite sure how to spell it though.)  So I finished up the strawberries for dessert after the meeting.  I don't think he was impressed in the least.

Marvelous.  Alas, no pictures.   will get you some pictures of the shrimp crepes tonight.  The Strawberry Crepes actually looked just like this picture from A Pumpkin and a Princess.  I will be at the farmer's market this weekend buying more strawberries and at the grocery store buying more flour today..  I found I can make the crepes ahead of time and keep them in the freezer or the fridge!  Isn't that exciting.

I will post some quilty pictures this afternoon!


  1. I am not a big fan of crepes, but I love strawberries! Those berries look so yummy!

  2. I love crepes, I used to make them for my kids and they loved them too. I detest pancakes, so crepes are a good alternative for me. :) And strawberries are an absolute favorite. Yummy!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
