Here is my great, grandduaghter's, Hannah, first sewing project on her own sewing machine-a prayer quilt for a little handicapped boy named Bryce.
This is the video I took of her as she worked.
I get more of a blessing for being able to make these prayer quilts than the ones who receive them.
God bless you and may the joy of crafting be upon you
Almost forgot I was going to give you my recipe for my soup-mind you, I usually don't measure much of anything so you may want to adjust some of the ingredients to suit yourself and I don't seem to be able to make just a little of anything after cooking for years for a family and guests.
so here goes:
On Wednesday, before I went into sewing room to hem a bunch of jeans for great, grandson, Blake, I started the soup in the crock pot-remember, I don't like to have to cook when I get done working
 32 oz. cartons of chicken stock
1 1/2 cups frozen chopped onions [I know, I am getting to be a really a lazy cook]
a bag of frozen shredded hash browns [I used over 1/2 of a 2 lb. bag]
2-3 cups left over mashed potatoes [I made lots of extra for dinner a couple of days before just for this soup]
-cooked on high for 4-5 hours-
added a couple of cups of chopped frozen broccoli
then when the broccoli was cooked added:
50 ozs. mild cheddar cheese sauce
[I usually use Velveeta but it seems to be getting rather pricey-was looking for a large can of cheese sauce I had used before but found Gehl's Nacho cheese sauce-it came in a box with 2 -50 oz. bags for about $8 so there is another bag left for nachos or pretzels]
Hope you like the soup, I sure do
