Something fun for my bathroom

When my mother passed away, 14 years ago this fall,
I inherited her cotton ball jar.  
  I have lovingly used her jar in my bathroom.
This summer I gave that jar to one of my daughters.
Her bathroom is decorated in pinks and Mom's
jar had pink designs in it. (My bathroom is blue)
I decided I wanted a vintage jar to hold my cotton
balls but I just hadn't  found the right jar....
until now!
I found this photo on Pinterest.com
This is an antique canning jar with a glass from IKEA
on top !

I had my grandmother's antique canning jar and
the IKEA glass!! 
My problem is solved and I love it!
This is totally me!

Block of the month .. block #1

In our local quilter's guild we started a new block of the month
challenge.  I decided to take the plunge and go for it.  I spent
over an hour at the fabric store and came up with this delightful
stack of fabrics.

Last night was our August meeting and this was my contribution.
I was so intimidated to start this block but when I did, 
Ihad so much fun!  After seeing all the other quilter's block I'm
ready to start next months block.  Such fun to see everyone's take
 on the same block with different color choices!
I'll be posting more as I complete each block.
This time next year I should have a new quilt!
