Julie’s diligently completed quilt. Lots of fairies and very colorful. She also did some neat flowers on the corners.

Jerilyn said she wanted a big bag, well she made one!

Started some 30 years ago it took a back seat to other quilts that needed to be made- marriages, babies…etc. Now complete.

I could not resist getting Jan in her applique action.

Kate also did some pink and green blocks.

Kate’s finished panels.

Sandy’s BOM made into a quilt for her husband.


Coming soon to this blog…


Yup, I am a little behind the eight ball because school is winding down and there has been much to do between that and soccer. Pictures will be posted soon.

In the mean time here is Lois’s dessert:

Strawberry Angel Dessert
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
¾ C cold water
½ C sugar
1 package (10 oz) frozen sliced strawberries (or fresh)
1 carton (8 oz) frozen light whipped topping, thawed
5 Cups angel food cake cubes
1 tsp almond flavoring
Fresh strawberries and mint, optional

In a saucepan, combine gelatin and cold water; let stand 5 minutes to soften. Stir over low heat just until gelatin dissolves. Remove from the heat; add sugar. Stir until dissolved. Add almond flavoring. Stir in undrained strawberries. Chill until partially thickened. Fold in whipped topping. Place cake cubes in a mixing bowl; pour strawberry mixture over cake and mix gently. Pour into an ungreased 8-in square baking dish. Chill until firm. Garnish with strawberries and mint if desired.
Yield: 9 servings. Note: May double recipe and use 9X13-in pan.

And I think we were waiting for another dessert recipe from the table.
