I wanted to show you Ronda's postage stamp quilt project--she made it out of scraps using Bonnie's leaders and enders idea. All of those small squares are made from scraps cut to 1-1/2". Yikes! Nice job, Ronda!
Ah, speaking of candy, maybe some of you can help me come up with an idea. Normally at Halloween, I fill jars, big and small, with candy. It's really just for show in the kitchen, but some of the better candy eventually gets eaten; even some of the not-so-great candy gets eaten if the cravings are strong enough! This year as I was pushing my grocery cart around loaded with a big bag of candy corn it occurred to me I probably shouldn't be putting that kind of temptation in my way--I'm not sure I'm strong enough to stay on the diet and resist day after day! Can you think of any ideas for filling my jars? I need ideas that aren't too expensive and would look well with the Halloween/Fall decor. I was thinking maybe some nuts in their shells might be good. Popped popcorn might be fun too--can you think of a way to make it colored? What else? Any other ideas? Thanks for your help!
