Happy Thanksgiving


Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.


Oh my goodness… I saw these on a blog and had to try them.. I can’t remember which blog it was.

It’s just a box brownie mix and as soon as you take them out of the over push down in the center a Candy Cane Kiss. Very yummy. I like them warm when the kiss is still really soft.



A few roses from my rose bushes yesterday.



I had to post this picture of Miss Molly Moo, she is a princess you know. I just love the little expression on her face here.


If you or your loved ones are traveling this Holiday season, wishing you safe travels. See you all in about a week….. Gobble Gobble, don’t eat to much turkey and pie, save some for me Smile

Look what came in the mail today


Erin over at My Patchwork Life sent me this cute fabric because I had never won a bloggy giveaway….. Thank you Erin I love it and isn’t that just the cutest little card. I hope you all can see it, if not I think you can click on the picture and it will enlarge. I’m going to have to find out where those cards are sold… Thanks again Erin, you are to generous and sweet.



After Erin sent me an email telling me she was sending me fabric because I had never won a bloggy give away I thought I should do the same thing sort of… I remembered how Angela over at Country Scrap Quilts loved this vintage Holly Hobbie fabric when I blogged about it so I sent it to her today….HH has a special place in her heart so I think she should have it. I can’t wait to see what you make with it Angela.



This cute pink quilt would have been a perfect post for Pink Saturday which I haven’t participated in for such a long time. It looks perfect in my pink room but I don’t think she will let me keep it.


Here is the back, she used a really soft flannel backing and I quilted it with a Tulip Pink thread.



Another quilt my sister made for her Bunco group… wouldn’t it be nice to be in that bunco bunch….


Thank you for stopping by and have a safe and wonderful weekend.

Customer quilts and a soccer champ

First of all I had to post my grandson Tyler… This was his first soccer league, he’s only 4 and so proud of his certificate and trophy.
IMG_0957IMG_0959And this one of Molly Moo just because she’s so darn cute. 
A few customer quilts. This lady has made 3 red and black log cabin quilts and every time I quilt one it makes me want to make a log cabin too.img32[7]
This is a nice one too.img32[5]DSCF2751
This one is really pretty, she wanted a large meander with a little swirl on it. It turned out really nice. Love that tulip block. Wouldn’t that look so cute in pinks and greens too?img32

It’s in Quiltmaker magazine


I have a few emails asking where I got the pattern for this little table topper.  It’s in this magazine, it’s the November/December issue. It’s the Arrowhead block. It’s A very clever block and you will be amazed on how it’s done…. very easy and fun. I just made two blocks for now and made them into a little table topper but I plan on doing a quilt with them later on.. it’s on my to do list…. sorry it took so long to get it posted here Norma but there you go.. Enjoy… oh I went to your blog really quick and plan on going back when I have a little more time.. you have some really cute quilts. 


I finished one of my quilts this week.. it’s just a small throw size, I used minkie for the back and tried a new pantograph pattern which right now I can’t remember the name of and I’m to tired to get up and go look for it. So if you really need to know remind me later and I will tell you Smile  Love this quilt though, it’s just so snuggly and soft….



This one I cut the tumblers using the GO cutter. I just quilted it today and I can’t remember the name of this pattern either, it’s the first time I’ve used it so it’s not sticking with me to remember it’s name. As soon as I cut the tumblers out and my hubby saw them he claimed the quilt as his….. I guess he loves all the browns.. it looks like a guy kind of a quilt.




Hope you all had a wonderful and safe weekend.

Remember…. Happiness is a Choice… Choose it.

I didn't win but I did win....

Erin over at http://vesuviusmama.blogspot.com/ was having a bloggy giveaway and I didn't win but I did win. Does that sound right.... She found out I have never won a bloggy giveaway and she just couldn't stand for that and changed it. She is very generous. Go on over to her blog and read about it and take a look around, she has some wonderful quilts she's made along with other crafty stuff. Oh and she has the 2 cutest little boys.
Thanks again Erin, you are so sweet.

Customer Quilts

Just a few customer quilts to show.

Love this first one with all the squares and the colors are wonderful.


A tee shirt quilt made for her daughter for graduation, a little bit late.. better late than never, right.. she used fleece for the back so it’s a really heavy warm quilt.


You know I love this one with all the pinks and roses in it. I quilted ribbon and roses pattern on it.



Another pretty one, my daughter would love this one with all the purple.



And another beautiful one.



You probably can’t tell but this one is made using golf towels. What a good way to show off your collection of something you love to do. I bet the guy that gets this is going to love it.


Enjoy your weekend.

Happy Stitching!

Testing with Windows Live

Ok I hope this works since I have been here for the last 3 hours trying to figure it out and set it up with a lot of help from Michelle over at http://lifeonvine.blogspot.com/ She is probably sick of my emails asking for help… thank you so much Michelle for helping me and so far you are so right… it is a lot easier.. Lets see if this all works before I type more or brag more about getting it all done Smile
