When life hands you a lemon 1/4 inch to0 wide.....Make LemonAID!

I want to thank you all so much for you kind words and support about my adventure over the weekend in Baby Jeep. Do you ever think about a happening in your life and wonder, "Hmmmmmmmmmmmm......?" I feel loved and i THANK YOU!!!!!

I am known at a local quiltshop as the Lady who Makes Napkins.....my quilts are small and now they are hip since the invention of the mug rug. He he he!......But did I ever think that a napkin of 9.25 inches by 10.5 inches would be considered too big.......Yes, ladies and gentleman, my HOPE was denied for being too big. Dog gone it! And I say this with a smile......


This is now my second quilt for the Alzheimer's fundraiser and the second quilt to measure too big. I thought I was so careful this time.....darn glue stickinig!

Well, I told myself this must be a Godwink and that I will host my own auction for this little ditty. If you would like to purchase this piece, go ahead and bid starting at $10.00 and I will have the check made out to the Alzheimers fund, sent directly to them as a donation and then send you the quilt.




Love, Em

Hint: make sure the piece measures no more than 8-1/2 x 11-1/2 BEFORE binding ... that way you should finish under the 9x12 limit (ask me how I know!!!!!!)

I bid $40 ...

Since I didn't get one made for the auction I'd better bid on yours. $50 is it. I need some hope right now and you have aat least 8 3/4 x 11 3/4 of it...
