I hope you will give these cookies a try. They are really delicious! Thank you, Carol, for hosting this fun and delicious hop! It's my favorite!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I need a few good aprons to get me through this holiday. To say I am a messy cook is an understatement!
The internet is full of apron tutorials, but when I found the "Tie One On Day" 3 Aprons in 5 minutes, I was intrigued. Well, it took me longer than 5 minutes to make this cute apron, but it was quick. Cindy at The Fabric Patch does a great job showing how she does it. You can see her tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbF_jXIGBvk
I have had this fabric in my stash for a long time, and thought this was the perfect project to show it off. The yellow plaid made a great liner.
The apron measures 25" x 36" with an adjustable strap and a 6"-wide pocket. It goes together quick as a wink. This is an adult-size apron, but CIndy at The Fabric Patch also shows how she makes a child's apron out of 2 fat quarters. These are so quick and easy you can stitch up a bunch in no time.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. When do you start preparing your Thanksgiving dinner? I usually start the weekend before Thanksgiving. There is always so much to do, and I LOVE IT! The clean up . . . not so much.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! There is so much unrest going on in the world right now, but we always have something for which to be thankful. I know I have many blessings to thank God for.

Welcome to Day 3 of the Monster Mash Sew It - Show It Blog Hop hosted by Joan of Moosestash Quilting. Joan challenged us this month to create some monstrous fun for Halloween! This is my favorite time of year. There's just a hint of magic in the air. Friendly breezes are turning mischievous, colorful leaves are dancing to unheard music, the moon seems just a little fuller, and . . . did I just hear a cackle???
This year there are no monsters in my project. It's no secret I love crows. (Probably dates back to my youth when I watched Heckle & Jeckle cartoons.) And what is Halloween without a patch of silly pumpkins?

Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts.
My project today is dedicated to my little dachshund Lucy. She had long ears that she used to let me know what was going on. In this very simple little quilt, the alternating blocks show the ears in different poses. To add a little something extra to the quilt, I sewed loose paws overlapping the print blocks.
I found the cutest dog fabric in my stash and used it to back this quilt. The overall quilt is lap size, about 40" x 60", perfect to throw over your lap while you're watching tv on a chilly night. And of course it's big enough to accommodate a pup on your lap.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my doggy quilt. Thank you again, Carol, for hosting this fun blog hop.

I have done some pretty crazy projects in my time, but none so crazy as agreeing to not one but two unicorn quilts for a friend. It was the summer of 2017 and she was about to become a grandmother for the second time and wanted a unicorn quilt for the new baby. But big sis, who was 2 years old, also needed a unicorn quilt so she wouldn't feel left out. How could I say no to a making two quilts for a friend for free in less than a month? Crazy!
I found a darling applique' pattern called Unicornia by Claire Turpin Design. The quilt was originally designed to be 50" x 73", but since this was for an infant and a two-year old, I decided to make them smaller.

One of the biggest challenges I had on picnic was keeping the kids from whining they had nothing to do when their energy levels dropped. For my project this month, I created an activity picnic quilt with games for the kids.
