I have been working on finishing up some of my UFO's.  I recently took a trip to my sister's house in Arizona, and made some progress on my slowly, but surely, dwindling pile of unfinished projects. 
 My sister owns a Gammill, so that made quilting the completed tops a breeze! 
 This was made from blocks from a BPF swap.
This UFO, entitled "Red Tidings" was made using scraps.  It measures 80" x 80".

In all, 10 UFO's were quilted, bound, and crossed off the "To Do" list!  Hooray!

My little Sweet Pea has been here for the past few weeks.  We have had loads of fun and made just as many memories.  Sweet Pea loves to watch the Food Network and is constantly coming up with new recipes, like her special "Veggie Pizzaz"!  Our trip to the library resulted in a cookbook entitled, "Mom and Me Cookbook" by DK Books.  She picked out the recipe she wanted to make, and we began...
 First, we made jam from the strawberries from Papa's (great grandpa) garden.
 Then I mixed up some cookie dough, and Sweet Pea rolled out and cut the cookies.  I placed them in the oven to bake.
 When cool, I frosted one cookie with butter cream icing, and my little Sweetie tenderly added the jam.
 Next, the second cookie was placed on top, and voila!
 Strawberry Jam Sweethearts!
They were sooo yummy...and they went very fast.  My compliments to the Chef!
