If I were more blessed......

I'd be TWINS!

I am blessed with a beautiful and sweet grandaughter.
Love seeing the world thru her eyes.

Grandpa and I enjoy the simple pleasure of just watching her sleep.

My kiddos indulge me and come and color the Easter Eggs.....Still!
I love those kids!

I gave my kids their Easter baskets to them last year and told them that
the Easter bunny would probably not fill them any more (me!)
However I couldn't help myself and got them a few little things including
these foam dart guns. 
I loved watching my grown-up "kids" playing like they were children.
A precious gift for me!
I always hope that they remember to be young at heart!

I love cooking!
This morning I made 9 mini loaves of banana bread,
peanut butter fudge, sugar cookies and
roasted butternut squash, onions, and apple to make
butternut squash soup. 
I have a great recipe that was given to me by my friend Sharon.

Tonight we celebrated Easter with my family.
My heart sings with thanksgiving for all of the blessings that I have been given.
Tomorrow will be another celebration.
A celebration of the life that Jesus sacrificed for us
Jesus is Alive!

God Bless,

Design Wall Monday

On my design wall today is this very old
and very fragile quilt top that was brought
to be to be finished.
So I thought that perhaps I'd post it here
to get some feedback.
I'm a little afraid to put it on the longarm.
Not sure that the fabric would handle it.
The top does not lay flat so it will be challenging.
My customer wants this quilt to be finished so
she can display it.
My initial thought is to envelope  the top
and simply tack the batting and backing  together.
Does anyone have any tips for working with antique quilts they could share?

Quilty Blessing,
