Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Pat Sloan's Edge Ruler Blog Hop!! I have been so excited to post about her new rulers, but you will have to humor me just a little and take a look at a few things.

First and foremost... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!! I LOVE YOU!!

Now do you have a cup of tea or coffee? Go ahead and get one, I'll wait. So glad you are back!!

I wanted to share with you my very first finished quilt!! As luck may have it, I had a photo and scanned it to show you. I gave this away to my wonderful college roommate, so it is no longer in my possession.

This quilt is the Star Log Cabin and was done in a class in which we used Eleanor Burns' Quilt in A Day book! I was hooked. But look at those fabrics... calicoes mostly. Boy, have my tastes changed!

Prior to this quilt, I had taken a class and the teacher wanted to teach us the "old school" way, scissors and cardboard templates. What a turn off. Boy, I could have used one of these...

Yes, a rotary cutter and an EDGE ruler from Sullivan's and Pat Sloan. This ruler sharpens your rotary blade as you cut. Genius! You can see the diamond powder edge, just enlarge the photo. The best thing is they come in all different sizes and they are also NON-Skid too and it works like a charm. To learn more, just click here.

So I bet now that you have your coffee or tea you need something to go with that right?

MMMM.... yummy homemade granola cereal. It is delicious, here is the recipe for you:

Mom’s Own Cereal

compliments of Shirley Swenson my sister in law!

4 cups rolled oats

2 ½ cups wheat germ (20 oz. = 4 ½ cups)

1 tsp. cinnamon

2-3 Tbsp. brown or raw sugar

¾ cup honey

1/3 cup salad oil

1 tsp. vanilla

Chopped dates, raisins, dried cranberries and nuts about 3/4 cup each

Mix the oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, and sugar together. Add the honey and mix well (with your hands if necessary). Add the salad oil and vanilla, and mix again with your hands. Add the chopped dates, nuts, raisins, and any other toppings as desired. Spread in two baking pans (such as 9” x 13” pans), and bake in 325 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Serve with milk. Keeps well. Store in a Tupperware type container.

I promise you, you will love this cereal and the ruler!!
