Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Wow, my husband is the greatest cook ever! He created quite the feast for my sister, mother and I. I wish I had taken pictures of our meal but we were so hungry after all the smells invading our senses all day that that was the last thing on our minds. I do have a picture of the pumpkin pie sans whipping cream and some raisin tarts that I had made yesterday. 

We have so many left overs though! 

I finally have my Bonny Hunter Mystery Quilt, 'Easy Street' finished! Just need to wash and it is on its way to my special Mother in law. These colors are just so her! 

There is another quilt almost to finish stage that I had first thought would be for the guest room. Hubby liked it so much that it is now for our bed.  This picture is the quilt in process and I have changed my mind about the sashing. I don't have an up to date picture but I wanted to share what it looked like at that point.

. I still haven't finished hand quilting the baby quilt for new niece so that will have to wait for the picture. I will leave you with a picture of one of my quilting buddies in a very upset mood.... Lol.

New Niece Arrived Today!

Beautiful niece arrived today. She is early!! Now I have to get moving on finishing her quilt.. 

I have been hand quilting this the last couple of nights while watching tv. It is so hard at times as my kittens want to help so bad by chasing the thread as it magically disappears and appears through the fabric! Aghhh... This is the first time I am trying to hand quilt and the extra help isn't helping at all. 

Starting to cool here now. 32 degrees this morning but the sun should warm everything soon. I took this picture just to show the fog... 

Also, I have finally have had the opportunity to do some canning.  Just finished canning some green tomato pickles that a neighbor had given us. Should be an interesting add to our diets!

That is it for today. Hopefully I will have a picture of a quilt I am putting together for our guest bedroom soon. And... Maybe a bed to put it on!
