Just for fun quilt

Have you ever wanted to just sew straight lines when you are working on a complex project? The need to just sew without thinking led to this quilt. 

        
I had no pattern and made it up as I went. What I did have was a jelly roll or two laying around just waiting to be used. 

I decided to add a touch of design to the back to make it a little extra special.

Foodie Penpals June 2012 Revealed

This month Dena at http://40fitinthemitt.com/ was selected to send me a package for the Foodie Penpals program. Dena sent me quite a few items that I’ve never tried before and have been wanting to test out and she was so sweet and sent my kids a couple treats.

I think my favorite thing so far is the Multi-seed crackers. I’ve been eating those at lunch with a little brie cheese and it is super yummy! My kids favorite was the blue suckers as their mouths turned blue.

I have also been wanting to try out agave nectar and tried that with the Superfoods hot cereal that she sent. Yummy! The only thing I have not tried so far is the Pearl Barley. I need to find a recipe that uses that.

I loved that she also sent an awesome whisk (which we used today to make pudding) and a cookie cutter for Breast cancer. Dena did not know that I LOVE to make sure cookies and this cookie cutter will be going in our rotation.

Thanks Dena! It was an awesome package full of new foods.
