My sister saw these and saved them from being thrown in the trash........

There is 14 of these squares.......

Each of these have 7 squares .......

And 7 of each of these..................

2 of the duck squares, 1 of the top square and 2 of the bottom squares

My sister made this cute cup cozy....I Love IT...

I went out the back door yesterday afternoon and turned my foot over....they had graded the lot out back and I guess I stepped in a soft spot.....and turned my foot over....it started swelling and hurting...I iced it and kept it up a while..then it was time to go home....I iced it and kept it up until time for bed...it was pretty swollen this morning but I went to work...at lunch I called and got an appointment with the doctor......she took x-rays and said it isn't broken but is sprang...she said to stay off it, keep it elevated, keep it iced and take it easy the rest of the week.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

I wanted to share this recipe...I have been making to for years with fruit topping.....had an idea that it would be good with carmel sauce.....I was Right.....it is Good.......so here is the recipe..
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 stick and 2 tablespoons margarine
1 cup chopped pecans
Mix flour, sugar and margarine together. Add pecans. Press into the bottom of 13x9 pan and bake exactly 20 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Let cool.
1 8ounce package cream cheese
16 ounce container Cool Whip
2 cups powered sugar
Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Fold in Cool Whip and spread over crust. Chill.
Caramel Sauce:
1 stick butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Melt butter, add brown sugar and evaporated milk in saucepan over medium heat. Cook until bubbly, stirring constantly. Continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool. Then add 2 cup pecans and pour on top of the filling.
You can also use pie filling instead of caramel sauce...use the pie filling of your choice (Blueberry, Cherry, Strawberry) or what ever you like, just make the cream cheese filling and then pour the pie filling on top.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
