It is also one of the reasons that I started the #52weekswithTheQuiltersPlanner QAL. If you want to see my blocks you can follow along on my Instagram […]

Having Fun with re-purposing…..

  I had so much fun this weekend…..making these wonderful Candy Jars. I made them using empty Talenti Gelato containers. I love any opportunity to re-purposing containers of any kind. I had help collecting the jars: those that I recruited had no complaints at all. 🙂 There has not been a flavor that has not […]
