Hot Plate Pads

I bought these cute little blocks at a garage sale and couldn't decide what to make with them. So I sewed some batting to the inside and gave it a back. I took some uncooked rice gave it some apple cinnamon scent filled the inside and made a Hot plate pad. When you set something hot on top of it, it draws the cinnamon scent out even more. They make really easy cute hostess gifts, and bridal
shower gifts.
So get some of your own preprinted blocks and start dishing up some cute kitchen accesories for your favorite ladies.

My Fall Table Topper!
I just took some scraps of fall printed material and muslin and made a mini block quilt to set on my table. I made an extra one that I gave my mom. It turned up really pretty as you can see.

It's Been Awhile!

It has been awhile sinceI have taken the time to Blog! Life has went on here, with alot of changes. My Dear husband has found his 16 year old daughter that was taken out of his life, 8 years ago, my lovely sister-in-law has come to stay with us until she can get on her feet again. And my precious grandchildren have moved several hours from us so we don't get to see them anymore. At time I feel life is just so full of nothing but challenges, that we have to fight for every moment of joy. Then I look around me and realize how truly blessed that I am. I live in a country where I have rights that every human being should be entitled to. I live in a beauiful home that I am blessed with from hard work, sweat, blood and tears and lots of love. I have loads of family and friends that keep my life full of joy and love and at times hair pulling craziness. And the comfort of my many 4 legged family members that give me unconditional love.

Take the time today to tell someone you love them and give them a hug.

Life is precious and the people around you come and go, but your memories of each and everyone of them keeps them in your hearts.
