Researching Sherlock's Quilt

Sherlock's Quilt serial story is taking way longer than planned.
Here are my research tools,
if you too are interested in Victorian/Edwardian London and Sherlock Holmes:

 
by Victorian Secrets Press
 
by Peter Ackroyd
 
the original stories as they first appeared in "The Strand," 
with Sidney Paget drawing
 
by DK Publishing
 
by Maria Konnikova
 
by Christopher J. Moore
 
 
In the meantime, and coincidentally enough, also of a Victorian London theme:


Bah! Humbug! pattern coming next month.
Yes, actually in time for holiday quilting. I can't believe it either. A Christmas Miracle of UFOs:)

Bellini Monte Cristo

New Bellini Jam is ideal for monte cristos!

Free international shipping when you order any two jams at Kitty Pearl's Emporium.
Made with Utah peaches and Prosecco. 
 

 Monte Cristos are easy & elegant French Toast sandwiches. But just in case you haven't heard, I'll detail the recipe here:
  • make sandwiches with Kitty Pearl's Peach Bellini Jam, whipped cream cheese, deli ham. [Alex likes to add bacon - precooked, of course]
  • make French Toast batter:  1 egg for every person at brunch, plus an extra egg. Add 1/2 as much milk as there are eggs. Pinch of salt. Teaspoon of vanilla.
  • Dip sandwiches in egg batter. Cover all sides of sandwiches with egg batter. Fry until browned.
  • Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup. Yum!!
Also try Kitty Pearl's Hot Apricot Jam for a uniquly spicy-sweet Monte Cristo.
