Happy Wednesday!

Last night I finished piecing this top.  I think this one will also go to the boys' home.  I have a backing fabric picked out, just need to get it sewn together and then I'll be ready to quilt this one.  I made most of this quilt top as a leader/ender project.  It is amazing to me how much you can do just in the process of doing another quilt!  It's a good thing.

Today out in the garden I noticed there were some turnips begging to be eaten.  So I brought them inside.
This is the second batch I've made of these Chewy Granola Bars.  They are GOOD!!  The only change I made in the recipe was to substitute dried cranberries for half of the raisins.
 This is a little project I have in the works.  I'll show you more when it's finished.
There is hand sewing involved in that one, and as you can see, my helpers have gone to sleep on the job.
I had sad news last night that my last remaining aunt had passed away on Monday.  She had just had her eighty-ninth birthday, so a rich, full life.  I'm not sad for her, but for her loss to our family.  I look forward to seeing her and so many who have gone before when I join their number in heaven.  Yes, I do plan to go!  (Just not right now.)
It looks like we might get some rain and I hope we do.  We're doing well on the rainfall this Spring, but we are still very far behind on our normal amount.
I hope you are finding lots to do and see and be a part of in your world.
Hugs and kisses,

My condolences on the loss of your aunt. So comforting and wonderful to know we'll be reunited with those precious ones!
No reports of turnips here, but it's been above freezing all day today and I can see part of the lawn!! Blessings.

I'm so sorry for you loss ... praying that your memories of her and the knowledge that you will see her again will give you comfort.

I printed out the recipe for the granola bars - YUM!

I'm definitely intrigued by that project that you're in the middle of ... can't wait to see it when it's done.

Another wonderful quilt though -- you get so much done -- it's amazing!

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt.
Love your leader/ender quilt top. A little child will love it. Yummy looking chewy granola bars! Your mystery project has me stumped. Kinda looks like a green monster.
