Treats for your Valentine

No Bake Chocolate Protein Balls

·       3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons peanut butter
·       1/4 cup maple syrup
·       2 teaspoons water
·       1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·       2/3 cup almond flour
·       3 tablespoons cocoa powder
·       6 tablespoons dark chocolate chips 

Mix well and roll into small balls.  Can refrigerate or freeze

You can add flax seed to make it healthier. I also added slivered almonds that I had toasted. 
Use Almond Butter in place of Peanut Butter if dealing with peanut allergies.

Larry's quilts

Larry Reed stopped by, looking for a flannel coordinate. He brought these quilt tops to show. Larry said he likes to keep busy when the cold air keeps him inside.

Larry created this lay out to make a heart in the center. Focus on the green squares to see the heart. This is for grandchild #9!

As you may notice, he has quite a collection of tractor and barn fabrics.

Thanks for sharing, Larry!

Tan and Teal

Had a customer in today looking for tan and teal to make a quilt block. Teal can be hard to define, as can tan. Aren't these colors pretty together.
Sue R was in recently and showed this quilt she is making for a friend in the military. The request was for a yellow, grey and black quilt and Sue felt this pattern was appropriate. I agree.
