Spring Recap & New Things

Hello friends! It’s been a minute around here and I feel like time has just flown on by! I have been busier than ever with some fun projects, new fabric, quilt designs, fun podcasts, and much more. With that said, I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of things I have accomplished as well as some things I’m currently working on.

Happy Days by Sherri & Chelsi

We were so thrilled to see our Happy Days collection shipping to shops earlier this March. We are so grateful delays in shipping didn’t last too long. If you are still waiting for precuts you ordered from a shop, please be patient as I believe those will be shipping this month or early June. Happy Days has been such a joy to sew with and we can’t wait to see what you all make with it! If you are looking for a fun quilt to use with Happy Days, you can find my coordinating patterns here.

We had fun news to share in March that you might have seen these past couple of months! Our newest collection, Sincerely Yours, ships in August and is sure to make all of your peach, coral, purple, and red dreams come true! I loved switching things up when designing this fabric and I especially love how the modern/traditional colors and prints play together in this collection.

I designed some really fun quilt patterns to go with this collection. You can find all of them in my Etsy shop here. Good Hearted is also a boxed kit with Moda so be sure to ask your local quilt shop to see if they were able to order any!

This past month I have been focusing on a fun project I can’t quite share just yet. I can’t wait to show you everything, but we’ll just say that I have been busy sewing some very pretty things! Aside from that project, we just received new fabric for our collection showing this Fall and it is so stunning! The quilts I designed are so darling and I’m hoping to start sewing those up in June! Oh, and of course I’m working on a couple fabric collections that will be showing in 2022.

If you have been following along with the podcast then I have treat for you all today! A couple of weeks ago I talked about my yummy Meatball Stroganoff recipe that my grandma would make when I visited. Over the years I have put my own personal touch on it and it’s adored by my husband and kids. I had so many requests for the recipe so I have decided to share it here on my blog!

Grandma’s Meatball Stroganoff

1 1/2 lb.s ground beef

1 egg

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs

1/3 cup milk

1 Tbsp onion

Mix all ingredients together with ground beef and shape into small balls. Brown on all sides in a large skillet until cooked through. Once the meatballs are thoroughly cooked through, remove them from the pan into a separate bowl.

2 Tbsp minced onion

2 Tbsp flour

1 can beef consomme (campbell’s)

3/4 cup sour cream

2 Tbsp Worcestershire

Freshly slice brown mushrooms

Once you have removed the meatballs, add the sliced mushrooms and onions to the skillet. Let these saute for just a couple minutes. Next, add the Worcestershire, flour, and can of beef consomme. Bring to a boil. Add the meatballs and mix in the sour cream. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve over white rice.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe and if you make it be sure to let me know how you liked it! Thanks for reading today. I’m looking forward to so many fun things coming the rest of the year and I can’t wait to share them with you!
