One of my friends who is a wonderful seamstress gave me a very sweet quilt for looking after her little girl.
Her little one is a darling two-year old and we have so much fun. I did not expect anything, but she wanted to show her appreciation by giving me this quilt and pillow sham that she made. For now it is on my porch, but it will come in for the Winter time and be used in my guest room probably.

I love that it feels like I am in a cabin in the woods when I am out here. And this Fall it will be a cozy little place to be thanks to my sweet quilts!
Above, you can see the grain sack that I won in a give away!
The quilt in the photo above is the one that my sweet sis-in-law made for me.
I can see I still need to paint the wood frame on the wall.
I created a chandelier out of this candle holder and white lights, it needs some tweaking still, I see.
One more very important thing, another yummy dessert! I know you all love chocolate, and who doesn't love a brownie. There's nothing worse though than a dry brownie, so how about a very moist brownie that you can put ice cream and whipping cream on top of and know that it is all equally delicious.
