   Oh...What to make for supper? I have such memories of my Mom asking: "Ham, Pork, Chicken, Beef ...Ham, Pork, Chicken, Beef... Oh Ed!  WHAT shall we have for dinner!?" It strikes me as funny now! I get it!  If you started making suppers almost every night by the time you were 18, and not counting all the breakfasts and lunches as well, by the time you reach 62, you will have asked yourself pretty much the same question, over 15 thousand times. LOL! So right now I am wondering...what should I make for supper? for the umpteen-zillionth time!

   Isn't THIS a fun quilt!...scrappy scrappy scrappy! It's called "Birds of a Feather" and for right now it's a free pattern, from http://www.freequiltpatterns.info/index.htm 

{81-1/2" x 81-1/2"} If you like it you'd better go scoop it now, because I have no idea how long they will keep it on their site!

   Oh I just love this circa 1920's German Easter candy holder at left! Isn't that so adorable?!...and how fun, too, to bring that bunny out every year afterwards as part of your spring decorations! (Much nicer I think than the idea I have seen recently to give a child an UMBRELLA-FULL of candy and gifts for Easter--holy moly! WHAT?! They'd be jacked 'til the 4th of July!-LOL!)

  ~~~~Meanwhile, reporting in that I now have 43 blocks done! Just 197 to go!~~~~

   There's a  European folk-quilt designer I am loving these days! (She's Polish, I believe, but lives in Germany) Her name is Malgorzata J. Jenek, She has an ETSY store here, where she sells her patterns (as well as a Facebook page, and a blog!) ...and has a wonderful gift of choosing lovely muted fabrics, does fanciful and beautifully embellished applique, and very wonderful hand quilting! I thought you'd enjoy taking a look at her creations! For those of you on Facebook, TODAY she is giving away a pattern called "I love my simple life" - which can be done up in any number of methods. It's wonderful! Again...I don't know how long that will be there, so go hunt it down on her FB page now if you are interested!

 Now then, I think I'll hit the sewing room for a while before I MUST figure out something for supper! ( oh!...THIS is kinda cool...recipe roulette! You spin it, and it gives you a recipe! http://www.reciperoulette.tv/  

Happy Quilting Folks!
