Great Granny squares

 I have had so much fun making great granny blocks!  There is just just something about sorting through lots of happy cheerful fabrics that gets me in a good mood!  I have no idea how many of these I'll make- but I'll keep going until I have a few more.
 Sorting through my fabrics made me realize I have a lot of scraps in my scrap basket that I will never use- so I boxed up my scraps (large and small) and went by the boy's school to give it to their arts and crafts department.  The school doesn't have a lot of "new" fabrics- and in my mind the kids (young adults) will enjoy working with good quality fabrics a lot more than the cheap stuff the school needs to buy, so maybe some of them will keep sewing and we'll get some new quilters..... ( I checked with the teacher first to see if they needed fabric, and she was thrilled to receive my scraps). Now I feel so much better bringing home more new fabrics.... LOL

Tuesday was DH's birthday, (a big one- with a o at the end... and a 5 in front of it....) and Kristine made these super yummy cupcakes- they were delicious!! You can find the recipe for the cupcakes here and the frosting here.
Today I need to prepare for a block night the shop is hosting on Wednesday, so I have blocks to sew and patterns to write!
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love those blocks, so bright! Those cup cakes look delicious, happy birthday to D H . What a great thing to do with your scraps.

  2. Very generous with your scraps.....I don't think I could part with mine. I said hi to Gail for you tonight - she is looking forward to seeing you at Houston.
