Cat and Quilt Content Alert!

June 30, 2008

There has been a little bit of quilting going on here at the Schmenkman household.  I have to be very quiet about it, though, or I might wake up Sonnet–aka Jabba the Cat.

Sonnet and Pink Lemonade

This is a baby quilt made from Me and My Sister Designs’ Strawberry Lemonade.  Sweet, cute, and easily completed from two charm packs and a jelly roll from Fat Quarter Shop.

I just halved everything–halved the 5.5 inch squares for the centers, and halved the 2.5 inch strips for the outer borders of each block.

It is finally in the possession of the baby girl who now holds the title of Best New-Old NameEvelyn Hazel.


We Have That in Common

It’s a good thing I didn’t know that Hershey’s made this chocolate before trying it for the first time, or I might not have given it a chance.

Starbucks/Hershey\'s Chocolate

It’s not quite as good as Ghirardelli’s Espresso Escape, but definitely worthy of a spot on the chocolate shelf!
