Baby Quilt - Modern Square Garden Quilt

Saw this easy tutorial on making a Modern Square Garden Quilt. I first was going to make it for my niece (who will be a year in February) for Christmas. After finishing the top I realized that it wasn't going to be big enough. I thought about adding to it, but new fabric patterns would have looked funny. I have a colleague where I donate my time who is having a baby in December.  So I thought this would be a perfect baby shower gift. I still have to go pick out the backing, but I will have the quilt finished this weekend unless something comes up.The binding is made up of scraps from the left over fabric.

Gone Fishing Quilt - Finished

Friday evening late I finished The Gone Fishing Quilt. This quilt was by far my most challenging project. Hubby loves it. Here are a few front and back pictures.

Organic Weed Spray


1 Gallon vinegar
2 Cups Epson salt
1/4 Cup dish soap (I used Dawn original blue).

Just mix and spray in the morning after the dew has evaporated. It will kill anything you spray it on.

Doggie Pool

I just had to post this. This is the coolest doggie pool I have ever seen. I want one when I get a dog and a yard.

Taking over a project

I have recently taken over a project. My mom (bless her heart) wanted to make a baby afghan for my brother's new baby (This was back in November 2012). Baby was due in February. My mom asked me the other day if I could finish it for her. I have taken on the afghan. Here are the picks of the afghan.


It is only 9 inches long so I have my work cut out. I figure if I do a few rows at night while watching TV, I should have it finished in no time.
