This is my latest quilt. I'd started piecing it for our queen-sized bed but soon realized it would have taken me until my level of tennis was that of Steffi Graf, so I created it for Yosef's and Rachel's and Mordechai's and Yisroel's sister, due at the end of April. The border - flying geese - takes quite a while to make and one day I'll be able to make it perfect! Regardless, I'm really happy with the outcome. So, I pieced it and a quilter friend has a long-arm quilt machine and she quilted it.

I've just finished this quilt top for the soon-to-be grandchild of a close friend. Boy or girl, we don't know and don't wanna know, as in olden times! I found the pattern on the internet and the soon-to-be mommy didn't want the traditional cutesy baby quilt and wanted bold colors. Well, mission accomplished, yes?

So very happy! Yisroel Fenster, born March 15, 2010, healthy and handsome. Plus, of course, a new quilt for him. Yisroel now joins Yosef, Rachel, and Mordechai into the arms of Eric and Lili - they are very lucky kids to have such extraordinary parents. You can discern I'm a proud Savta (Grandma in Hebrew). Mordechai can't say Savta, but I like what he CAN say: Tata!

By the way, if you're automatically getting a notification of my new posts, I apologize and I don't know how to stop it! No need to reply - unless, of course, you want to!
Did you know if you left click on any photo, you can enlarge it? Try it..........

I make this in a crock pot. If you, or someone you know, likes creamy rice pudding, make this.
1/2 gallon milk; skim, whole, or anything in between
1 c. raw rice (use short-or-medium grain rice, not long grain)
1 c. sugar ( I used Splenda)
1/2 tsp. salt
Place all the ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on high until it simmers, stirring once in a while. When the rice no longer sinks as you stir, it is done, about 2 hours.
Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and stir. Pour into a dish and cover the top with cinnamon. Chill."
THIS IS TRULY DELICIOUS AND COULDN'T BE EASIER. Stan and I are creamy rice pudding connoisseurs (we love Kozy Shack's version) and I've been looking for an easy, foolproof recipe that will adapt well with a sugar-substitute. THIS IS THE ONE.
I know, I know, it's not a quilt. But we all need to eat before we can quilt. You can quote me on this.........

I hope he loves it. My next project is making a Dick and Jane quilt for Courtney, who'll be four in July. This one will follow a pattern and since I've never done that before, I'm a little apprehensive. Making up my own scrappy quilts is easy; I don't know about following a pattern!

More to come. I'll post a photo of a quilt I'm finishing for Devon (11-yr-old grandson).
Ciao for now...

These are my darlings Yosef & Rachel who live in Israel and I get to live with them from Dec. 10th thru the 25th on my semi-annual visit to Israel. Yosef will turn 3 - all those beautiful curls will say "bye-bye" - and Rachel will turn 11 months. I'm bringing them quilts and toys and children's CDs with books that go witht hem and lots of other goodies. My new camcorder will let me see them whenever I need a fix back in L.A.

When I return from Israel, my next quilt project is for Devon. He'll help me pick out the fabrics and the general idea for a pattern, since I'll do my own thing regarding that. Then comes a quilt for Courtney and I've already selected the fabulous fabric for that one.

I think I like this font better. More easily read I think. Although quite large. It's Verdana. This is Trebuchet. This is arial. This is (This is Webdings!)
Well, now I have to learn how to upload photos. There's a button for that but it's not responding to my click at the moment.
