As you probably know, it's Shark Week and we're having way too much fun with it here at CKC!  We have some fun tutorials to help you celebrate in style. Today's project is totally amazing and brought to us by Summer Waters at Summer Fox Boutique:   



Is that not the coolest table runner ever?!  Summer has shared her secrets with all of us and I can't wait to show you how it's done! 

First of all, you will want the Quibbler's Quilt-As-You-Go Table Runner pattern (click here). It's great even for beginners and you will love the stripwork and curve details for not only this project, but also others in your future.  

Then of course you will also want the detail pieces!  To get the shark pieces, simply download and print our free template by clicking here.  

You probably noticed those adorable little umbrellas too.  For those, she used a piece of ribbon for the "poles" and then free handed the umbrella shape. 

Once you have all your stuff, go ahead and sew the main Quibbler's Table Runner according to pattern instructions.  After you have it sewn, then you're ready to add the shark and umbrella details. (You can do the binding either before or after the sharks; it's up to you.) 


First, cut out however many sharks you want from the fabric.  Apply Heat n Bond to the back side of each and iron them onto the table runner in a random "swimmy" pattern. You're welcome to use our first photo above as your guide for placement! 



 With all the pieces ironed on, you're ready to take it to your machine to stitch around the edges of the pieces to make them sturdy for laundering etc.  You can use your favorite stitch around the edges, and I love the one that Summer used.  This is a blanket stitch, with the widths and lengths lowered. 

Summer also suggests using a thread color that matches the background fabric rather than the applique.  I think she's right; it looks great! 

Go ahead and repeat the stitching for your remaining shapes.  Be sure to pivot at the corners with the needle down each time, so you can get neat points on your pieces. 

Do the same with the umbrellas. Now you're all set! 

A huge thank you to Summer Waters for showing us this creative idea and applique technique! She's super talented and I hope you go show her some love over at Summer Fox Boutique

Also, I hope you will come post photos of your finished Shark Week table runners in our patterns group on Facebook so we can ooh and aah over them too! That's my favorite part of posting these free tutorials.

Let's Create! ~ Kristen

Wut. Wut wie damals, als ich Kind war – als Erwachsene merkst du ja meist gar nicht mehr, dass du so richtig sauer bist, weil du vorher schon abbremst, ausweichst, dich beruhigst und dein Kopf das regelt. Aber das hier, dieses Reißen in meinem Bauch, das ist richtige Wut. Kalte Wut.

Wut, weil ich – wieder einmal – Hilfe gesucht habe, Termine hatte, von Fachleuten etwas wollte, Hoffnung auf irgendwas hatte, und irgendwas hätte schon gereicht. Bekommen habe ich „Unsere diagnostischen Möglichkeiten sind ausgeschöpft“, den Hinweis, in zwei jeweils 2 Stunden Autofahrt gebe es Zentren, die eventuell weiterhelfen könnten, aber hier könne man nix für uns tun, auf Wiedersehen, da ist die Tür.

Kalte WutMyriams-Fotos auf Pixabay.com

Die Mühe, sich genau einzuarbeiten, haben sie sich gar nicht mal gemacht, das Urteil stand schon fest, wieso da noch genauere Erkundungen einholen? Kein „Es tut mir leid, dass wir Ihnen nicht helfen können“, kein freundliches Wort, stattdessen ein ausweichender Blick, wir waren lästig.

Im Besprechungszimmer nicht in Tränen ausbrechen und auch nicht fluchen. „Komm, wir gehen. Die helfen uns hier nicht“, und „Scheiße“ murmeln, beim Rausgehen, im Auto erstmal atmen, weil das kein guter Zustand zum Autofahren ist, und alles Hinschmeißen wollen. Dann halt keine Diagnose, obwohl der Fachmann in meiner Stadt gesagt hat, für ihn sehe es ganz eindeutig nach Diesunddas aus, zusätzlich zu dem, was schon diagnostiziert ist, und ich solle versuchen, mir das bestätigen zu lassen, damit es leichter wird. Als ob irgendwas jemals leichter würde, ich hätte es wissen müssen.

History repeating, aber hey, das ist sicher Projektion!

Ich mag nicht mehr, ich bin die Alleinerziehende mit dem schwierigen Kind, das liegt sicher daran, dass die Mutter (Akademikerin, Doktortitel, und hinterfragt auch noch Dinge) so unfähig ist, ja, das muss es sein.

Dass das alles schon eine Generation vorher genauso stattgefunden hat, und die Oma erzählt, ihr habe damals auch keiner geholfen, sie sei von Arzt zu Arzt gegangen, und überall habe man den Kopf geschüttelt und die Schuld bei ihr gesucht, das interessiert keinen, das kann alles Zufall sein, Projektion, überdrehte Mutter, Sie wissen schon. Die ist ja auch ständig im Fernsehen, soll sie sich lieber um die Kinder kümmern, dann gibt’s auch keine Probleme!

Und niemand da, der mich jetzt festhält. Der mir sagt, die spinnen doch alle, unerhört, und lass dich nicht unterkriegen! Ich will ins Bett, die Decke über den Kopf ziehen, niemanden mehr sehen. Aber ich muss Mittagessen machen, nachher zum Reiten mit dem Kind, und heute Abend auf die Abifeier meiner Großen, auf die sie sich so freut.

Ich bin nicht das Problem, ich bin die Lösung, ich weiß das, aber ohne Diagnose kriegt mein Kind keine Hilfe, also muss ich da durch.

Also noch mehr Termine, noch weiter weg, noch keine Hilfe. Und weiterhin schräge Blicke, Unverständnis, idiotische Ratschläge, alles von vorn. Freiburg also. Oder Tübingen. Denn Aufgeben ist ja auch keine Alternative.

I spent ten years working at the Mesa FamilySearch Library aka Mesa Regional Family History Center aka Mesa Arizona Family History Center. During that time, the Mesa FSL served tens of thousands of patrons. The closing of the Library is a sad event. Think of all the resources both physical and in the minds of the volunteer missionaries that are now lost. The Mesa FSL had thousands of books, microfilm records, microfiche, maps, reference books, and other valuable resources as well as computers, classes, seminars, workshops, and a series of conferences. The October Conferences were always packed with hundreds of interested people anxious to hear their highly experienced presenters.

Most of all I am sad that the friends in the Mesa FSL will no longer be able to serve. Some of my best friends served with me during the time I was there in Mesa. I will always cherish and appreciate the kindness and friendship of these wonderful people. What can I say? A major genealogical institution has died!

I fully realize that there are plans to open a Family Discovery Center, but the resources of the Mesa FSL will not be duplicated. Of course, microfilm and microfiche are on their way out, but the books and the experience of the missionaries cannot be duplicated.

Thanks again to all who served for your wonderful and caring help to a whole generation of genealogists.

I made some Paleo No Bake Cookies last week. We had Spring Break last week and I totally loved it and spent a lot of time with my children. But it feels so good to have them back in school (at least for a little while). I can finally catch up on my TV shows during lunch while I’m at home soaking up the silence. So I thought I would celebrate my alone time with some chocolate (is there any other way to celebrate?)…specifically these Paleo no bake cookies.

Paleo No Bake Cookies

I love to make these Paleo no bake cookies all year cause they are so easy and only take 3 ingredients and I can make huge batches ahead of time and they keep forever in my fridge (if I hide them really well from my children – like behind the kale in the back, top corner of the fridge).

*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links. This means if you click on a link and purchase, you will receive the same price, but I will receive a little money for referring you to the product. This helps keep this blog free for you. I truly appreciate you supporting my blog.
   

I honestly can’t think of a better cookie to make when it’s hot outside.  They require absolutely no interaction with the oven, and although I LOVE my oven…we aren’t exactly best buddies when it is 90+ degrees outside.  I am sure it understands.

These decadent cookies are a mix between a heavenly gourmet chocolate and a soft and crunchy cookie…plus they are made with only three wholesome ingredients – that’s right you heard me – THREE!  Plus did I mention they are no-bake?

They whip up in a flash – since they are only made with three ingredients, and they are great to serve to guests.  Yes, they are good enough to be guest cookies, or neighbor treat cookies.  They really are perfect cookies (I am pretty sure I say that about EVERY cookie recipe I post – but let’s be honest – I LOVE cookies).

We actually ended up having a good Spring Break this year. We decided to do a staycation, cause we are super tight on cash right now and I’m so tired of trying to find decent places to stay that fit two parents and four children who all want separate beds.

It’s pretty much impossible on any sort of budget. It’s pretty hard even without a budget at the type of places we like to go, such as national parks, state parks and other outdoors type of places.

So we spend a lot of time researching RV’s, even though we have no money to buy one and probably won’t any time soon. We dream of someday blogging full-time and traveling across the country in an RV.

Until reality hits and we realize there’s no way we can both work full-time and travel and take care of the children. Let alone be crammed in an RV with teenagers, health insurance, school for the children and all their friends and activities they would miss out on.

So for now, we are content at home sleeping in our own beds going to places around here and trying to spend as much time together doing fun things as possible between all the duties of school, work, and life.

Anyway, I highly recommend making a batch of these Paleo no bake cookies – like now, and if you want to, this recipe is super, duper easy to double or triple! I would love to know if you make these and if you share them or hide them.

A recipe for gluten-free strawberry shortcakes made with almond flour and coconut flour, topped with plenty of fresh-picked berries and whipped cream.
Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake recipe | FoodforMyFamily.com
“Up, up, up.”

Softly, slowly, caressing blanket-covered feet that tuck up into the ball of child when touched. I prefer to wake up slow. I fully realize the stats and studies on the benefits of not hitting snooze, but I do not care. I plan two alarms. One to rouse me from sleep. One to actually get up to.

As such, I am the parent who quietly whispers that it’s time to get up. I let my children snuggle back into their comforter for a few minutes before I start any real demands. I climb into bed with them, kiss their soft noses, and ask about their dreams.

Groggy morning voices and mouths thick from sleep start to murmur. Shorts are pulled on, sandals slipped into, teeth brushed, and we’re in the car driving.

Growing up, the strawberry fields were down the road. It took five minutes from pulling out of the driveway until we turned onto the dirt path that would take us to a grass-covered lot. Our urban setting means we drive for quite a bit longer before reaching our destination.

By the time we’ve been given our yearly instructions and set loose to our row, the kids are more than fully awake. With the five of us, it takes less than an hour to fill three flats as we move down the rows on our knees, even with the kids taking turns wrangling their two-year-old cousin and instructing her not to step on the plants. The promise of donuts and pie and berries over ice cream are strong motivational factors, and soon we’re on our way back home, the sweet fragrant scent of berries overwhelming the truck on our drive.

Ridiculously easy to stir together and with a low baking time, these shortcakes beg to become a summer staple whether it’s strawberry season or we’ve moved on to picking raspberries and peaches. Almond flour provides the base for the cakes, and the coconut flour helps soften them a bit and soak up the eggs and butter. Need no dairy? These work with coconut oil substitutions as well.
