Have you seen the newest trend for breakfast? You make it up before going to bed and have it ready for you the next morning. It can be a refrigerator oatmeal, a smoothie bowl, or a chia pudding. Chia seeds are getting a lot of buzz lately as being a super powerhouse of nutrition. It can't hurt. I've been adding it to my blender smoothies just because. But, I decided to gather the ingredients together for one of the chia puddings.

Shake it up.

The next morning.

For me, it was still a bit thin. But, the taste was really good.  I will be trying a few other ones when the mood strikes me. I found a pumpkin chia pudding recipe on Pinterest. Yum!

Have a good week and

Quilt happy,

I'm sure you've seen these on the internet.  I found this one on Pinterest. It could be an iPad stand. I just happen to have a tablet.

I often use my tablet for my cookbook or my patterns that I have stored there.  Yesterday when I tried to stand it up, and it kept falling, I said "That's it"!  I need to stop everything and make a stand.  Of course that led to two stands. I made the black one first (enlarging the pattern by a couple of inches all around). I decided the first one was a bit awkward, which led to the colorful one with a smaller front that was closer to the way the pattern reads. Actually, they both work fine. 

I must say, it has already made life simpler. I love them.

Hope you have a good week and that you

Quilt happy,
