Nordstrom cookbooks

Thank you to all the ladies who attended my class yesterday!  It was so much fun for me!  Amazing that everyone selected  a different fabric for the quilt!  That is truly a first for me!

Everyone received a “Ritter Maker” from our very own Nancy Ritter!  Template plastic designed specifically to center yo-yo’s on the background blocks.   You place it on top of the background block, put a thin line of basting glue on the back of the yo-yo, center it in the Ritter Maker, press in place and remove the maker!   Has a scotch tape handle so you can pick it up!

Nordstrom Bread Pudding

Brigette made the Nordstrom white chocolate bread pudding.  Yummmmm!  Double baked, with shaved white chocolate and raspberry sauce.  Heaven.

Did you know that Nordstrom has cookbooks?  They publish, keep them for a bit and then retire them.  Makes me want them.  Want them enough to go shopping on Amazon to try and find the first one.   There are a total of 3 so far!


You’ll find the bread pudding recipe in the “Friends and Family Cookbook,” online at Nordstrom!  Just do a search for cookbooks and you’ll see them!  These make great gifts for the cooks on your list.

And Chickie this photo is for you…

Target Christmas

These are from Target!  I was talking about the larger tree in class. Sold out in our area. Everywhere.  No trees to be found, and of course they are darling!  I have one of how many thousands do you think Target sold?

If you couldn’t come to class, you can still have bread pudding!  Let’s see, 4 cups cream, 18 eggs, and how much white chocolate?  Are you kidding?  Oh my!

  • Miss Jean - Oh, now I am depressed for not making the class! Not only did I miss a great class held by one of my favorite designers, but you had bread pudding! Not just any bread pudding, but the mother of all bread puddings. Bread pudding is my favorite dessert!

    Boy, that will teach me!

    I'll have to swing on over to Nordstrom' and get the recipe!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for the wonderful day!

  • PamKittyMorning - I would love to eat bread pudding by the bowlful, however sadly, I do not want to join the circus, which is the only job I'd be able to get after all the delicious pudding.ReplyCancel

  • Thimbleanna - Can you give Brigette orders? Can't you order her to get to that blog and teach us how to make that bread pudding???ReplyCancel

  • Blessedmom's Simple Home - I wish I could have attended that class. The quilt is beautiful. I bought the smaller tree at our Target this week. They had the bigger one too, but I didn't get it. Do you want me to go back and get you one? I just posted more photos from the Wrightwood quilt show. Come and see them if you get a chance.

  • Anonymous - Hi, check this link out … it is just another method of attaching yo yos to fabric, I'm sure there are other methods too, it all depends on what you like to do – I like all your designs, makes me feel happy :-) ElinReplyCancel

  • luvtoquilt - I was originally scheduled to take your class, but had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts. It was to have been my Christmas present from my husband. So now I have a raincheck and hopefully you will hold another class in the future. Sounds like I missed a good time. As it turned out, I have been in bed with the yucky flu all week and had to miss everything!ReplyCancel

  • Taylor Lundquist - Anne, it was such a delight to meet you Friday adn what a wonderful class! You are gracious, generous and FUN!! I spent all day Saturday at mty son's volleyball tournament making yo-yo's! Hopefully I will see you in another class soon. Thanks, julie from San JoseReplyCancel
