I'm so in love with this pink-ish color lately. 
I keep seeing it and I'm drawn to it.
Thank you, Dawn, for making this pretty pink soap! 
(I use it in an oil bottle my friend, Brook, gave me years ago.)
My customer, Kathleen, from Pennsylvania, sent me several quilts to quilt recently.
One of my favorites is this Modern Baby quilt. 
It has this pink-ish, peachy color in it.
It's a very simple design and she asked me to quilt radiating straight lines in two blocks and pebble the other two. 
It was a challenge, but so fun!
Here is the the grey and that little bit of piecing set in.

 A close-up of the flying geese "bits" on the front:
Another beauty she sent me...."coins"....with an all-over cross-hatching design.

Tucked inside all of her lovely quilts was this beautiful pink Pyrex dish with flowers.
Somehow she remembered I am in love with Pyrex!
My other pink Pyrex dishes welcomed their new friend to our home.
I didn't hesitate to put my new/old dish to good use.
Yes, cherry cheesecake!

A favorite of ours.
Cherry Cheesecake:
For the crust, crush one package of graham crackers and add 1/2 cube melted butter.  Spread it in the bottom of your dish.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8oz package of cream cheese (room temperature)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 can cherry pie filling
Combine filling ingredients, mix until smooth, pour into crust then top with cherry (or your favorite) filling.
