This was taken on the 22nd but she is 14 months old today.  A couple days Jaymee got to put her hair up like this for several hours but since Sunday she hasn't let her do it.  She won't keep headbands on either and Jaymee makes and sells them and clips.

Philadephia Strawberry Fields No-Bake Cheesecake

This recipe is from a food & family kraft magazine that I get and was in the summer 2008 one.  I made it several times in the past and haven't in awhile so will make it as one of the desserts for Easter.

12 Honey grahams finely crushed to make 2 cups
6 tbsp. margarine melted
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. sugar divided
4 pkgs. (8 ozs each) Neufchatel Cheese (I use cream cheese)
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
2 cups fresh strawberries chopped
1 tub (8 ozs) cool whip lite whipped topping thawed (I use regular)

Mix graham crumbs, margarine and 1/4 cup of sugar, press onto bottom of 13x9 inch pan.  Refrigerate while preparing filling.

Beat Neufchatel cheese (or cream cheese) and 3/4 cup of the sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until well blended.  Add preserves, mix well.  Place strawberries and remaining 2 tbsp. sugar in small bowl, mash with fork.  Stir strawberry mixture and whipped topping into cheese mixture.  Spoon over crust and cover.

Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.  Store in refrigerator.

Makes 16 servings

My Sat. 2-21

First 3 pictures are taken from dining room towards back yard, next 2 from front room the front yard and then I thought after I made a hooded towel that I would try a couple new recipes. 

The first is Red Velvet Fudge Pie.  The recipe makes 2 so going to take some to my great aunt, mom and neighbor.  Jaymee took a couple pieces home.  Now I have cinnamon rolls rising to bake and will also share them.  I didn't taste the pie.

Another hooded towel

I used the heart stitch on hood.  This one is for Teigan and then she has 4 so that is enough. I think my great nieces and nephews will get these for their b'days----maybe.

Cloth book done

Corners aren't perfect but.......  I decided to topstitch all around it and like the look of that.  Need to see if Jackmans still has this panel.

Teigans Valentine Blanket

This is really big for her but she will grow with it.  It is from the ultra cuddly fleece.  I doubled it then top stitched it and I decided to tack it.  Thought with quilting it, that it might get out of shape.

This quilt came to Teigan from an online friend.  I happen to run across a blog about 10 years ago (this summer) with the name of my favorite bird and started following it.  Happens I won one of her give aways and we have became friends.  We write and call each other once in a great while.  She is a very talented sewer of handbags (I won one and then received one for a b'day gift) and she also does quilts.  This quilt is so pretty with the material choice and also the pretty quilting pattern.  A very nice size.  Teigan has already put her doll on it, has use it on the floor and we covered up with it at nap time. 

Teigan is very proud of herself that she found my cell phone.  Only to have it taken away very shortly and then she got the camera so along with remote things were put up.
