Things are looking bad. I have not even unpacked my stuff from out getaway in the Poconos.
We celebrated Cheryl's 60th birthday. I hope she doesn't kill me for letting that out! It was so nice and she was very touched. There are not 60 candles on that cake, even though it might look like it!
I worked on the paper piecing project and now have 4 blocks complete, they take forever! I am really enjoying the colors, a departure from my normal pallette.
I also completed all my bowtie blocks and will show them to you later this week.
Jane was sewing furiously to get this all together before she left and was successful!
Terry found a snake skin (that had shed) and I brought it home for the grandkids. You know it will be a hit at show and tell.
This was the head, see the eye at the top? I have never seen one this amazing and intact.
One of our quilting friends, Lynne is a finalist for the Pillsbury Cookoff! Her recipe is called Chocolate Hazelnut Toffee Bread Pudding with Candied Bacon. It looks delicious. Congratulations Lynne and I really think you need to get that blog started so we can follow along, one delicious recipe after the other....We look forward to the competition on November 3. Lynne is also a super nice lady, what a great combination!
I did go to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza. My Dear Diary quilt is hanging in the show, so that was fun to see. I got this book I have been eyeing for some time now. It's super, with great antique quilts.
I also found this adorable little book that I will be giving to my granddaughter.
Perfect timing as she will be getting a new sibling in the spring.
We had quite a discussion about Edyta Sitar at our getaway. Some knew about her and others did not. If you leave a comment, tell me if you know about her or if you have had her as a speaker. I would love to get some feedback.
Don't you love how the fabric in the book is her actual fabric? Nice touch!
I promise to regroup and get back on the blog soon. I missed you all!
