I am blessed, Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, Valentine's projects and Connie helping me
I decided to join my block swap with Valentine hearts and we are using black backgrounds and red hearts...stay tuned to see the results! Very fun
Speaking of Valentines, my Grandson came today and wanted to make a quilt. We worked on a Valentine for his MOM and DAD and he was quite pleased...this is the second little project we have done and more to come...
Connie came over yesterday and we laughed and talked and sewed on Mark's quilt....we have one more day possibly two to get this put together for him....
It is more fun sewing with two people than one...in my opinion...
Connie is also working on a new cow and I have one in mind....we were looking at my stash and gee there are SO many ideas there! Do you ever notice what wonderful fabric you have and wonder why you haven't used it? That is where I am.
I am thankful to have a place to sew and a good stash...I am blessed
Today my friend sent me this to share...they sound good and easy to do for Grandkids.... what do you think?
