Cookies and Quilts

Baking/cooking, Love Entwined – Esther’s BOM, quilts, Red & Green Traditional Applique

What better combination – the house was nice and comfortable last night with the windows open and the temperature dropping.  A perfect time to make cookies in the summer.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 package of Ghirardelli chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup coconut
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Bake for 14 minutes (depending on size) makes 3 dozen cookies
Beat the sugar and butter and vanilla until creamy.  Add the dry ingredients beat until mixed, add the chips, walnuts and coconut.  And then eat them when nice and warm and at their best Smile  (these are not crunchy cookies – if you want crunchy decrease the wheat flour and replace with white, and use half shortening and half butter)


Got this much quilting done on  the Red and Green Wednesday night now on to the border stretch again.


Love Entwined – on to the 2nd zigzag border!  All glue basted in place and ready to applique that stretch down.

    Yesterday when Jackie Kunkel came over she said “I have to take a picture of the two of us together for Karen.” Just so you know…it was all for YOU 🙂
    I was raised near San Francisco and love anything Ghirardelli

    As sad as I am to see summer go, I love those cool nights when cookie baking seems like a good idea. Love Entwined is just beautiful. Take care, Byrd

    Great timing to visit your blog. I need to do cross hatching similar to what you have on the red and green quilt, on a whole cloth pre-printed project. I have completed the main design, borders, and binding. I had hoped I could skip the cross hatching, but the rest of the quilting isn’t close enough together. I am now hoping for any suggestions for how to go about this next step. I’m feeling overwhelmed at this point. Thanks in advance for any help!
