Magical Monday and blog candy

What is it about the silence of a house the first day when kids go back to school? I don't want to break it. It is enevitable as my husband will be coming in from PT soon and wreaking the house I have straightened up once already. But for now it's just me and my clackty clack of the keyboard. No fighting about what the girls want to do to occupy themselves, no tv, no radio , NO FLIPPIN XBOX! (ok so maybe the xbox s unfair as I am the one who got it for hubby for Christmas but after hearing nothing but that the last two weekends and most days since Christmas radiating from my living room I am so over it)
Anyway I want to share with you although it is not quite finished, my present for my grandmothers 80th birthday. I have have always wanted to make my grandmother a quilt with her family on it. Now mind you I have only made 2 or 3 quilts in my entire life and that was over 5 years ago so I am a bit rusty. In the patterned fabric there are hearts handstitched in and squiggles on the sides of the saying that reads A family stitched in love hardly unravels. I am debating as to wheather or not i want everyone to sign it. What do you think?

Now for my surprise. My promised blog candy for my 100+ posts. I know it took me forever to get to, but it is here. I am offering up bazzill bling paper in primary,rubons galore (love them) 18 yards of satin ribbon in white, blue and green, a cute 8x8 cupcake scrap kit (perfect for making cards, bling flowers , some cute buggy chipboard shapes and a fun design your own mug!
