What is going on?


Recently blogger may have changed something with their setting AGAIN. I am no longer able to comment on your blogs. It says I am anonymous or asks me to sign in on Google. Well I am always signed in on Google and I never had a problem leaving comments in the past. Does anyone know what has changed?

I have looked at my settings and I do not see any way to change the anonymous setting. Or to maintain Google! I am also wondering if anybody else has had this problem? Are you having problems commenting on my blog? Please help if you are able. It is so frustrating not being able to comment on the blogs.

Presidents Day


"The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country."

Heart of mine

 Many years ago I made this heart quilt for my MIL when she had heart surgery,

It was passed on to me when she passed away.

So recently I found this free heart pattern on Fat Quarter Shop.

I really wish I had used a lighter gray but it will have to do for now :-)
There are several free heart patterns available on the Fat Quarter Shop free page.

Happy Quilting.

Happy Valentines Day


Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.

My happy place

 Isn't it fun to go fabric shopping? Especially when you get inspired! 

Beautiful selections of fabrics.

And of course lots of beautiful sample quilts made up.

Sigh.... so much fabric to choose from.

Happy Quilting!

Rocky Road

Rocky Road by Becky Wade is the second of Sons of Scandal romance series. And it has proved to be such a fun story.

Jude Camden is a straight laced undercover FBI agent set on a mission to catch an illusive criminal by posing as Gemma's boyfriend.  Gemma Clare at first is resistant to helping the FBI since they put her father in prison. But knowing her cousin was part of the reason, she agrees to cooperate. Then the fireworks begins.

Although it is against FBI regulations, Jude falls hard for the feisty red-headed Gemma. Even though they are so opposite. But their relationship is a slow burn, drawing Gemma in as well. 

Becky Wade has such a way of taking you on this journey with humor, insight and a bit of mystery. Her  dialogue pulls you into the story, with family interaction, a WWII mystery and faith realization. Although you do not need to read the first book, Memory Lane, it would help introduce you to some of the secondary characters. I did laugh out loud at some of the banter between Jude and Gemma and the ending held me on edge. I definitely loved this clean contemporary story. I look forward to learning about the next family relation in the series.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advanced e-copy of this book. All views expressed are my honest opinion
