Happy Valentine's Day!

My little granddaughter, Emily, is 9~1/2 months old now and is enjoying playing with blocks.
So I sewed together this little carrying tote for her.  Squished flat it measures about 9" x 9" with
the 2~1/2" gusset folded under.  The outside is made from a sturdy bed coverlet, an appliqued heart
on a pocket with a simple, single handle for little hands.  I strengthened it with Warm & Natural and
lined it with 10 oz. cotton duck.  Fun and easy!

A New Pie Recipe!

A friend suggested a favorite pie recipe of hers ~ Blackberry/Banana Pie!  Just slice a banana in the bottom of the pie crust.  Top with fresh blackberries.  Sprinkle on a little sugar, a shake of cinnamon and the top crust and bake as usual.  With a little vanilla ice cream ~ Delicious!!  A nice treat in mid-winter.
