Here is a memory quilt I made from a friends clothing for her grandchildren. What a joy this brought me to make them for her twin grandchildren. She was diagnosed with cancer and lost her battle in two months
Belong to the Bee Attitude Quilters Ministry and have been busy making quilts for the needy and those in our church hurting or with health concerns, and some special times. It is fun and gives me another reason to quilt. Need to get more cotton fabric donated to our group. There are 5 to 8 of us most of the time.

Basil must have it's top pinched to bush out. It can be planted a little deep if you like. Basil leaves can be harvested as needed once your plant gets enough leaves to share. Keep the flower buds pinched off all the time. Once basil goes to seed, as an annual, it's only function is to produce seed then naturally die. I like to wash my basil very gently when I water it, and before picking a few leaves so I know that it's clean. Basil

I'm calling it Ruby Wine because the binding I bought happened to be two different colours - not that you can notice it - one was marked wine and the other was marked ruby - both looked red to me! Any ways...Ruby happens to be my FIL 2nd wife and mother of my husband - she passed away 18+ years ago and this quilt will be a good reminder of the life they shared together (I hope) ...

This is the ultimate stain remover that actually works on a seriously set in stain! Never buy oxyclean again!
The mixture is
1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent
3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
couple tablespoons of baking soda.
Scrub on with a scrubbing brush
Has anyone used it and been dissatisfied with the results?
Today I made my May block for the Monthly Quilting Bee.
I chose an Ohio Star block, as my swap partner had no particular theme or color scheme. Hope she'll like it.
I did a little piecing on a Bonnie Hunter quilt pattern that I started a few weeks ago.
My roses have started blooming like crazy. Hope to take a picture to post this week.
