Crafting my butt off

I will post soon.  I've been very busy working on Christmas gifts.  I'm trying to get them done so I won't be knitting furiously fingers almost bleeding, hope they liked their gift  when I should be nestled all snug in my bed waiting for Santa. : )

Any quilters out there?

A few weeks ago I was cleaning out my laundry/craft storage area when I started going through an old box of my Grandmother's patterns.  (Mostly quilting patterns with a few other types of patterns thrown in.)  I remembered seeing one of the quilts that I found the pattern for and I knew I had it somewhere in the house.  Well last night I found it in a different storage area.  We're getting ready for a yard sale and are going through everything in the house.  Anyway...the quilt is torn on the left side corner.  I was wondering since I'm not a quilter but I really want to preserve this what I could do to fix it.
I've had this for a long time, but sadly never noticed until last night that my Grandma Jo put the date when she finished this onto the quilt,  14 January 1941.  So if any quilters out there would like to give me a little advice as to what I can do to fix this I would really appreciate it.  Thanks in advance for any help.

OMG!!! The best chocolate cake ever!

Triple Chocolate Layer Guiness Cake.  Chocolate and Guiness, I knew when I found this recipe it was the perfect thing for Kevin's birthday.  I'm not the best at frosting cakes and I was in a hurry to get this on the table for my sweetheart.  But looks aren't everything.  This really is a most excellent cake and I don't really care for chocolate cake normally.  I got this recipe from Hope Studios.
