Auction

Image
The YW had an auction to raise money for girls camp.  They did quite well raising more than they needed.  We were very surprised when a cake the girls did sold for $150.  It was the last thing auctioned off and several times during the auction my daughter commented she wanted it to be auctioned because she was curious what it would go for.  She decided it was saved for last because they expected it to go for good money.
I made a small throw for the auction.  The pattern rated it as a throw, I consider it a quilt best for a toddler or preschooler.  It measured 41x49.  I was very grateful that it was small because I cut the fabric on Monday and was turning it in for the auction 4 days later.
I used leftover strips from the front on the back to add some color.
The girls also made a batch of homemade brownies to auction off.  The other cake that was made stuck to the bundt pan on top and it wasn't pretty but we sure enjoyed eating it.

Pray Painting

Image
A friend of mine and I went to a place that was new to us to paint.  The owners were wonderful and friendly.  The class size was smaller, which made it nice for the hands-on help if you needed it.  When I mentioned this place to her, there were a couple of other paintings that I thought she would enjoy doing but this is what she chose.  I was happy because this is something that is nice for our home but I can also see it used in a display at church some day.

Patriotic Cards

Image
State Conference is coming up and my chapter is putting together a basket with the theme of "Crafty Ladies."  They added the ornament that I gave back in December and they asked me to make some cards.  These are 5 of the 6 cards I gave them and the next picture is the 6th card.  I made doubles of the cards to use in the future but I had already used the double of the 6th card as a thank you note for the speaker at our meeting this month.  This was his second time coming to our meeting.  He is very engaging and so knowledgeable.  We seem to have him in March each year when it is Women History month.  This year he shared with us about several female spies.  I learned that Julia Child's application was turned down because she was too tall!



 I've shared this next card before, I just used different colors this year and the sentiment came from a different stamp set.
If you look closely, you can see the embossed stars on the navy cardstock.


Chicken Pot Pie Galette with Cheddar and Thyme Crust

This was the best!!  I doubled the recipe because of all the people at our house and they LOVED it!  It is a Taste of Home recipe, give it a try.  The recipe can be found here.

I do believe you will enjoy this as much as we did!

Spring Wall Hanging

Image
Even though I'm not replacing the wall hanging above the door this month, I needed to swap out the leprechaun hat I did for March.  It seems like I've had to whip these out quickly with Easter just two weeks after St. Patrick's Day.

This has more of a spring feel to it.


Let's Go Fly a Kite

Image
It is windy enough here that you could fly a kite and it will be like this for the next six weeks or so.  It is something to be driving toward the valley and see all of the dust flying around.  This wall hanging above the door is quite appropriate.  I don't plan to make the April rain boots wall hanging because we won't see rain until June when it is monsoon season.

I must admit, it was nice to have one without any words.  Goes sooooo much faster!

Leprechaun Hat

So frustrated that I have a buckle on my binding.  I may have to take it apart and do it again.  Super cute leprechaun hat wall hanging though!
