I have made it to south Texas where it has rained most of the afternoon. The worst of it looks to be over so I can head on into Beaumont tomorrow morning for a full day of classes. However, I had to get online long enough to share the following with you.

Quilters and food just naturally go together. Yesterday, during the class break in W. Monroe, LA, there was an incredible snack on the table. I asked if I could get the recipe to share with you and it arrived in my email box today. So - - here it is. How many of you have a quilt event in the next week or so where you'll need to prepare a treat? Here ya go!
