mint drink~~~~summertime

When I think of summer,  I think of the mint drink that my sweet mother made.

It is just a simple syrup, made with fresh lemon, orange, and mint.

You add the ginger ale, water or adult beverage of your choice!

The recipe:

2 Cups sugar
Juice of 6 lemons and 2 oranges
1 Cup of mint leaves

Cook sugar 5 minutes and cool.  Add fruit juice, pour over mint,
cover and let stand for 1 hour.
Strain in jar and store in refrigerator.
Use 1/3 Cup of syrup to glass of ginger ale or water or beverage of your choice : )

show off friday~~~yoga mat bag

amy butler pattern

Show Off Friday
I made a yoga mat bag using a free Amy Butler pattern

I made it with her Soul Blossoms Trailing Orchid Home decor 
fabric for Rowan by Westminster Fibers.

Although you can't easily see the lining, I'll tell you what I used : )
It is a regular quilting cotton called Mini Mikes by Michael Miller fabrics
in a bright green.

The pattern was so easy to follow and I think it will be very handy
to use.  I like the pockets on the outside and the wide strap.

Now it is your turn to link up something~~~~what do you have for

Show Off Friday

There are no rules for this link up party....this is just the place to show off
projects you are working on!

Little Quilt Monday

June is my month to provide a block for the OKCMQG BOM.
(Oklahoma City Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month : )

You can find the tutorial for my block here at the 

simply squares block

I think it will make an awesome pillow or make
four blocks and it will be a darling mini quilt!

I hope you will make this block, and please let me know if you do : )

Now it is your turn to link up something to
