February Blog Funk

I have had nothing to write about for the past week as I haven't done much but sew in my spare time.  I did a lot of sewing the first week of February.
 I have posted all my projects on my quilting blog,, or just click on the link on my sidebar if you want to know more about the projects. They are all made from free patterns that I got on the Internet and I have posted links to the free patterns, if you are interested in making any of them.

Today I pulled these lovely bananas from the freezer.

and turned them into 2 loaves of a glazed banana bread.I have not yet tasted the bread, but it looks a lot prettier than those frozen bananas, don't you agree?

I hope it's good as I intend to take a loaf to my MIL tomorrow. We are going there for dinner for my father-in-law's birthday.

Did you notice those roses behind the banana bread? It's my Valentine's Day flower from my sweet husband.

If I can keep it alive until June, I can plant it in the garden. 

I hope you are all having a good February. It's been very, very cold here. A couple of days last week were below zero.  I am enjoying the cold weather. I don't have to worry about spending too much time on my sewing projects because there is nothing else I need to do outside.  Spring will be here soon enough.


  1. Oh, Zoey, the quilting projects are so lovely, I have never tried my hand at quilting, but it sure looks like fun! The banana bread looks so yummy, it's a good thing I don't live closer, or I'd be knocking on your door. What a sweet husband to give you the beautiful rose, I'm sure it will grow beautifully for you!

  2. Zoey!! You did not leave the recipe for that banana bread!! It looks lovely!
    I have picked up my blog again, but now it seems all my blogger friends have the winter blahs!
    I have enjoyed going back thru your blog and looking at the pictures of your inspiring and energetic blog. Take care, Sis

  3. they look very tempting...much more than the frozen are making good use of your time sewing instead of complaining about the weather....

  4. Zoey, your quilting looks great. I never tried freezing the bananas and then using them later. I am always throwing them out when they turn. From now on, I will save them. We are going to be 50 degrees by the end of the week.


  5. I shouldn't have looked at this at 10:30 PM, now I'm hungry.
    I've never had iced banana bread.
    I bought me the 5 minute Artisan bread book. While baking my 2nd loaf of bread yesterday my pampered chef baking stone broke.
    So now I need a new stone and a piza peel.
    Love your flowers, I got my usual heart shaped box of chocolates.

  6. It's been so cold over here as well and I'm sick of it, I tell ya! lol The February blahs have set in and it's even a struggle to know what to blog about. Just nothing much happens during the winter months!!

    I see you continue to make beautiful quilted projects, just love that cupcake towel!! Your banana bread looks so delicious. I have a bunch of frozen bananas I should pull out and use...any chance you'll share your recipe?

    I love those little rose bushes, your hubby did good:-) xoxo
