Crispy Treat Cones

While visiting family on vacation, mom and I made these yummy crispy treat cones. The chocolate scoops are made with cocoa flavored rice crispies. These are perfect for making with kids.  I had one kid in charge of sprinkles and another in charge of putting on the "cherry" malt ball candy. So fun to make and delicious to eat.

July Quilt Block

July Quilt Block
I decided I wanted to learn paper piecing so I did lots of research on the internet and and found some good tutorials and patterns and I ultimately made this lovely patriotic block for July's quilt group.

And while I was on vacation I bought some fun bright fabric at Jo-Ann's for the next month!

It is so fun and bright, I had fun picking it out! I hope my quilt group gals will enjoy making blocks from these bright colors. :)

Design Inspiration

I love this little window display at Cozy Cottage. I really want that pretty pitcher and maybe an old window to hang on my wall. So fun to find some pretty inspiration.
