These Easter treat bags were featured at the Party in Your PJs link party.
Here’s another wall hanging that I quilted on my long arm quilting machine. This was done freehand. (Mainly because I couldn’t afford the computer software program!

The book Make Your Kid a Money Genius was reviewed on Grandma Ideas.
(Note: I was given a free copy to review. However, all opinions are my own.) I was raised on a farm in southern Idaho. We grew those famous Idaho spuds, hay, and grain. We grew a large garden and also had fruit trees. And the cows. We milked those awful […]
