I changed the quilt in my sewing room to "Friends and Neighbors" 2004.
This was exchange with my Illinois friend, Mary Pat W when I moved to NJ. Some of the liberated houses are mine and some are hers. I still love this quit and remember it being very fun to make.
The back is all household related print fabrics.
I'm finally marking my big star quilt. Great News!! I'm having 2 versions of my over sized baptist fan stencil manufactured and I'll be offering it here on the blog for purchase. They are also manufacturing another one of my designs for their catalog. (my room is a mess - again) At least the dolls are behaving.
On other domestic fronts:
I turned these
a Food and Wine recipe for Tortilla soup. click here for the link.
I did a little "fake baking". I added vanilla and some oatmeal and viola'
I inherited Jill's extensive collection of doilies, aren't these pretty? Warm fake bake is better than no cookies, right?
The hummingbirds area gone, but the winter birds are here at the kitchen window.
This year I moved the whole feeding station up to the deck where I can see them.
I don't know if this is a red-headed sparrow or a purple finch, but he's handsome.
First cardinal of the season. He's a handsome fellow too!
I've planted an amaryllis and paper whites.
I'm uploading lots of reading for my ipod.
I finished my first block of the Alice Payne quilt.
I found my name tag collection. I'm off to my second meeting with my new guild tonight.
If I'm not back, have a Blessed Thanksgiving next week to my US friends. Hope you are staying warm and find time to stitch, read, bake, cook or watch the birds.
