Yesterday we celebrated my grandson, Austin's birthday, which is this Friday. He was visiting all weekend, so he and I made his birthday cake, just the kind he wanted...chocolate with strawberry icing! It was a fun day! He will be 12 on Friday and I can not believe how time flies. Children grow up way to fast!
Tomorrow is my quilt group at church. I am working on this Iris quilt, which is from an old pattern book my mother had. I have made 30 blocks and appliqued the iris on using the blanket stitch around the edges. Now I am sewing the blocks together, alternating a pattered back ground and a plain green one.
When all put together, the quilt group will put it on a quilting frame and all of us will quilt it. It will be raffled off for our bazaar in November. Hopefully it will be finished by then.
I am in charge of dessert tomorrow at quilting, so I made a big batch of Snicker doodles and will also take some watermelon slices for those who had rather have something healthier, if there should be the need!I have already been sampling the cookies and they are SO good. I know you all have the recipe for Snicker doodles, but if not, let me know and I will post it.
Tea time with my favorite Irish tea cut and saucer!
This is one of my favorite tea pots. I haven't seen another one like it in my many antique buying frenzies.
