An attempt to keep current.....

Here's the little mini quilt/table mat given for the 50th birthday of a friend. Told her the block was called 'Granny Square' so I used it to poke fun at her increasing age!! ;-)  The emergency chocolate bar was found at Big Lots and the label is a hoot...!
Purchased quite a few of these to tuck in gifts.... And here's the back of the little mat:

LOVE the fabric and had just enough of the green for the binding! Phew!
Making a new batch of baby burpees and a couple Farmer's Wife blocks to follow later this week, I hope.
Had an extra special Mother's Day at our DD and DSIL's. They made brunch and gave us 2 moms a wrist corsage!! Forgive the hand that needed lotion, and isn't that so pretty??


Enjoy the beeeeautiful Spring weather this week--and hope we all get some sewing in!! Or gardening would be just as great! :-)

Again, a lovely post. Your primroses are gorgeous - are they perennials? The quilt is really cute and kinda modern - love it.
