Meet Ricky

When I envisioned Ricky in my mind, he was a cute little mouse; a pincushion i created to be sweet and fun to enter in the state fair.  Well, after I actually made him, he became a rat.  So, Ricky the Rat will sit along side all the other little pincushions crying out to get his ribbon.  "Pick me", he'll say as the judges make their way through all the pincushions begging for a ribbon.  Maybe if he slips them some cheese he'll have a chance.  Let's hope so!

A Sherbet Pips Quilt

I fell in love with the sherbet pips collection.  It is so sweet.  I bought two charm packs and added some kona solids to come up with this darling lap quilt.

My five year old granddaughter, Ava, asked if she could have this quilt and I told her I already made a quilt for her.  She said, "Grandma, when you finish it, then you'll decide who to give it to?"
I think I've decided!

Mmm, Fruit Salad

Nothing like a nice colorful fruit salad in the summer.  Unfortunately, it's already gone.
