What we are doing today is to play with some mark making. I find that with making a quilt top I am often daunted by the actual quilting part. Once I have made something that I am super-excited about with all my favorite fabrics I get worried about the stitching… maybe I’ll do something I won’t like.

We will be back with another fun giveaway later today but in the meantime, here is a fun and easy granny square stocking. My dad had a few of these in his place when I was growing up, probably made? by his mom back in the 60’s based on color selection. I marveled at how they were made even when I was little, I was even a craft loving tot.

Sometimes the best things in life are simple. The girls teach me that every day. What I often take for granted, looks much more glorious in their eyes. A 5 minute brownie becomes more special with a simple twist. Just 1 extra minute for 2 extra smiles, actually, 3. I can’t help but gleam when seeing their little eyes light up. Last week, I made an ordinary batch of brownies extraordinary by simply using a cookie cutter to cut them into heart shapes. They made a great after school treat, but may make another appearance at Valentine’s Day for their friends with the classic phrase, “You’re a sweet heart.” This little twist is easy to achieve.There are a few keys to this adaptation:use a 9×13″ baking pan – it provides just the right thicknessgrease your pan welluse a cookie spatula to carefully remove your browniesdust with powdered sugar or cocoa to hide any imperfections & of course, add to the flavor! I’m always in for a little extra sugar when it comes to treats!The result – thick, chewy & pretty little Valentine’s Day treats.
