Forgot to post about this

Ah, another wall hanging finished and delivered. 

My sister liked the one that I had on the table and asked if I could make one for her. But of course I could!  Her house was need of some autumn colors and this just fits the bill.

On another note,I received a picture of my new niece and her quilt. How cute is this?

I swear she fits on one of the rabbit squares. This is why I love to make for others and I know that she will have this for many years.  

I have started another quilt, this time for my mother. Soon she will be moving in with another of my sisters and her old quilt is getting quite ragged. My sister asked if I could make a replacement for her.  I will post a picture once I get further along. 

The weather is getting cooler so starting to do some baking. Pumpkin loaves on left and bread on right. Tried a new bread recipe but not too sure I like it as the bread seems to dry out too fast. I have tried some of the buns and they seem to be best toasted before eating. I have also made some Nanaimo bars which as a Canadian living in the states, is a little taste of Canada. Tomorrow I am hoping to try to make biscotti. I haver never tried this before so will be one way to learning. I have had biscotti before many times so I am hoping to get close to the ones I like.

Anyway, that's all for now... Talk soon I hope!

I finally have some things to show you.  Even though I have not been blogging this month, I have managed to finish three quilts. First there was my Easy Street by Bonny Hunter, then Bunnies in Hyde Park. 

This was made for a new member of the family. I am told that she loves the bright colors and that all the other members of her family are taking their turn grabbing a hug.

Then I finished of this quilt for our bed. 

It is quite interesting the effects that show up in pictures. This is queen size and I still have one more  envelope pillow case to make. I actually shifted gears as i needed a break from these colors.

So, what to do next? I have had two requests for this wall hanging....

And have gotten this far. The picture is blurry, sorry. It has been a rainy grey day today, but on the plus side, more time to sew. I also have four mug rugs made and two small wallets. Not bad eh?

Really can't complain about our weather. It has been warm and sunny up to today. We have had some foggy mornings but usually it burns off by noon. I just love that I can now hang some clothes outside. The quilts take on such a sweet smell and are so soft.

Oh well, time for bed.  Talk soon I hope!
