Jaymee with her Quilt

After about 10 yrs. of me telling her she would like doing a crazy quilt she tried it. (even tho I have never did one) A queen size.

Jaymees crazy quilt top done!!!!

Now just to get it quilted! She did a great job. Last row alittle shy but has to be squared to have binding on.

So Easy and Good

I ran across this recipe while surfing some blogs.

It was on ---- love the house on it.

Take a ritz put a rolo on the top and put into a 350 degree oven until soft aobut 2 minutes then top with another ritz.
Just enough saltiness with some sweetness.

From Pinterest--for sewing bobbins

I saw this yesterday A.M. on pinterest and immediately knew I had to do it.

It said to use tubing 3/4" on the outside and 1/2" on the inside. I could only find 3/8" on outside and 1/2" on inside and could only get it in 10' roll. Will last forever--unless the guys get into it. lol You cut it then into 1/4" sections. Look how neat the bobbins stay and the thread ends aren't all over!!!

Sewing Room---Gonna Be!

I got this cute little shelf at Target on Saturday and put it on my sewing table. I have some bigger pink and green bins and have yellow, orange and royal blue ones ordered for other places in the room. Cannot find any brighter purple ones yet. (without the white cord handles) This room was my daughters and she got married in May '11 so I am taking in over.

I did get a new trundle bed in there--she took hers for one of her spare bedrooms---but I have work to do in here yet. My grandmas rocker loaded with stuff is black and I will paint it white, need to get more shelves but Wal-Mart and Target never have white when I am there. Need to order thru the store. Curtains need to go up yet and several other things. Would like to get some type of cutting table maybe.

The material was stacked nice and neat in the corner until this past Tuesday night when I was pulling it out to get some scraps for my daughter. She is doing a crazy quilt.

Hopefully in the next few months--by summer---it will be done!

Changes in under 2 minutes

Watching the sun come up one morning when I went out to warm my car up. Had to run back in and get the camera. Looks like a Ninja Turtle or a smile.
