Look at what greeted me on Easter morning! New snow. It's supposed to be spring but we keep getting snow and it is so cold. I have to say it was gone by the afternoon but it was still cold.
The Easter Bunny knows that we love our mint truffle eggs for Easter and she didn't let us down or is the Easter bunny a he?

I made this very simple french toast souffle the night before and put it in the oven this morning and everyone enjoyed it.
I'll share the recipe. 1 loaf of french bread cut into slices and placed in a greased baking dish 9 x 13. In a blender mix 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 8 eggs, 2/3 cup half and half and 1 1/2 cups milk. Blend and pour over bread. Chill overnight in the refrigerator. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with 6 tablespoons melted butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Enjoy!
This is a sneak peek of a new Riley Blake Designs fabric line called Andrea Victoria.
It's ready and waiting on my quilting frames and I should get to it real quick. I'll take a picture when I'm finished.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.

Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.
