    Question for you, I have one of your wool quilt blocks kits. Ready to start stitching and wondered if you ever put Soft Fuse on the back of the cotton to keep it from bunching up while stitching. Love everything you do!!!

      I do not…

    That is a cookie I have never heard of. Thanks for the recipe–I’ll have to try a small batch with gluten free flour and see how they turn out.
    LOVE the shot of Little Man in the bathtub, with his cookie on the side. : )
    Thanks for these blocks. I do intend to make them–someday. Currently working on quiet book pages for youngest granddaughter.

    That tub picture reminds me of my son at that age. What a great, fun age and it’s great that ya’ll live close to see him grow up. Just printed the oatmeal cookie recipe. Can’t wait to make them.

    thank you for the blocks Lisa, and thanks for the oatmeal cookie recipe they have been one of my favs too but I’ve never tried baking them and frosting them let alone a “self-frosting” cookie! I would love to hang out and learn some baking from you and your mom 🙂 I still haven’t tried her coconut cream pie but I’m planning on attempting it! Glad you had some fun time with lil man… I know he will always treasure them when he gets old enough 🙂 Have fun in VA and safe travels there and back! I’m off to make block 14 and 15 now, I’ll post pictures!

    I love your half square triangle blocks! Beautiful! I’ve been trying to find out how many DIFFERENT blocks can be made with the half square triangle? I’m guessing it must be tons, but is there a way to figure it out….or is there a particular book? Thank you!

      We have 87 so far…

    OK – first of all – I want to take a bath in a soaker tub that has a TV and cookies and coffee or wine at my fingertips! Can I be your granddaughter? Secondly, thanks so very much for your posting the recipe, thirdly – a million thanks for the blocks you provide to keep us out of trouble. At my age I tip over putting on my underwear but I can still follow your blocks and end up with a wonderful quilt and the pattern didn’t cost me $30. Hugs to you and have fun in VA..!

    Hi Lisa, I am new to your site and excited to say I may see you in Hampton this weekend, Sunday to be precise if you are still there. Myself, along with 4, [of our 8 member older ladies] recently started a beginners hand quilting group and will be at the show. Looking forward to everything! Regards, Judy in Newport News, VA
