New Things On the Blog

Look here! I finished a project yesterday! I hadn't plan to buy anything on my last visit to the quilt shop, but I saw the charm pack of Candy Kisses from Sandy Gervais so of course it came home with me along with some coordinating fat quarters. I kind of made up my own design, bravely did some free motion quilting and ended up with a nice little February table topper. Just don't look at the back - which of course I would never photograph anyway. I'm still having a little tension problem with the free motion stitches but I'm still practicing. Check out my side bar for a couple of new "buttons". Mrs. Goodneedle over at the Strawberry Patch is going to be hosting Lets' Talk every Tuesday. So next Tuesday, stop by and say hello and make a comment on the Tuesday topic. This week it was "how long have you been quilting and why do you continue?" She's provided a cute little strawberry so you can click on it to hop on over for a visit. Then I also signed up for the Siggy Swap that Connie and some other ladies are putting together. I think she still has room for a few more in the swap. We'll all be making blocks with our signature on them, sending to one location then we'll each receive 45-60 blocks, one from each participate. Of course there's a deadline to get them done, so hopefully I'll not procrastinate and be late!

Sorry I didn't get a recipe posted for you on Monday. Instead, here's a link to the Lentil Soup that I've been making lately. I use turkey sausage instead, trying to make it a little lighter. Some of you have commented on my cookie header. Those were made last year and are long gone! I guess I should find something else to put up there so not to tempt you with sugar cookies!

Everytime I look at your blog I see those dang sugar cookies which happen to be my all time favorite cookie. LOL!!!

We won't be looking at your quilting 'cause that heart is just too dang cute. I need to get my siggy swap thingy on my sidebar too -- it's just a little bit of work!

I love the heart table topper Mom. You did a really good job on the free motion. You're better at it then you think,
