Early Valentines Goodies

Last night we had our monthly meeting of Material Girls Quilt Guild.  We had a guest speaker that showed a trunk show of her work and gave us all a lot of inspiration and tips.  I love that sort of thing....I need all the clever ideas that I can get.  One of our sweet and very talented  quilters, Carol, brought our snack for the night and all I can say is delicious and unique!!


She glazed these heart cookies and then applied edible paper which she drew and painted quilt motifs onto.  Wow...darling and delicious!  Then to top that off she made little "books" which look like needle books but actually have pockets for tea bags and/or candy.....she had one for EACH of us!!  Thank you Carol....you are a gem!








On a side note, Mr. Stitches bought an Amarylis bulb after the holidays and I planted it in January.  These two pictures are a week apart....last Thursday and today.  Those "puppies" sure grow fast!  Can't wait to see the flowers.
