A Spring Trip Around the World

Tonight, I cut out the blocks for the small quilt I’ve started.  
I’ve decided to call it “A Spring Trip Around the World”.
I haven’t received permission to share the steps to the 90 Minute Quilt, so I won’t be able to post them.  I will however be able to share the quilt I’m making.
After viewing the layout in the picture, I’m thinking of putting the green squares where the blue is, the blue squares where the pink is and pink where the green is.   
The picture shows my second choice of layout.  The first choice had the pink and yellow blocks reversed.
I will decide for sure which way to place them by tomorrow evening and then I will begin to sew.
I am also working on a small afghan at this time. 
Here is what I have done so far.  I’m at the place of a color change.. so I will pick back up with the light pink and do the colors in reverse ending with the dark blue.
I received a email from a friend today that ended with “Take care of the earth… it’s the only planet with chocolate!”   And as I am sipping on hot chocolate  at this time, I decided to share a chocolaty recipe.
One of my favorite cakes… 
German Chocolate Cake.  
See recipe by clicking the Recipe Tab at top of page.
Here’s bidding you ado.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  2. Loved your description of color switching.And I must say, I never thought about the earth being the only planet with chocolate…so, why would anyone want to explore other planets and go without ;)Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog…I certainly enjoyed my return visit to yours.
