I have just been "binding" my own business!!

Yes, That is what I have be doing all weekend;"binding" my own business!!
Hmmm, binding, not my favorite part of the quilt making process, but this weekend,
 I bond four, count them four quilts!!
Can I show you?
Noooo, not yet!


I can show you the flimsy I also finished.
The Dr. Seuss quilt for Little T.

I used the pattern Happy Hour.

Here is interesting thing, this little guy loves quilts with fuzzies on them. That is a quilt that has been tied. So, this will be tied with a super soft backing to keep him all snuggled up this winter.

We also had our family portrait taken. No rain, warm, but very windy!
I sure hope you had a wonderful weekend too!!
I sooooo need to start to Christmas shop and make my cookie baking list!!

Wanna' Trade?

I am slightly obsessed with the Kei Kerchief Girls... Just a little OCD about them!! Dear sweet Ayumi from The Pink Penguin had three prints. I now have pink, brown, black.

All I need is a 5 to 10 inch piece of the other colors , I do not even care if it is square.
If you have any of the other colors....How about a trade?

One ball of Finca Thread for the piece of fabric.

I hope someone out there may not need their scrap but would love to try the thread!
Thanks a ton.

What is the problem!!??

What in the world is all this Ghastlie stuff!! I mean can't you just leave us alone!

We are just like everyone else!


We so enjoy each others company. In fact once a month we all get together for dinner.  This month was my turn to make the main dish.
So I donned my apron and got right to work!

Mmmm, spaghetti, see, normal, just like yours!!

I was able to bring it nice and hot in my casserole carrier!

(pattern from 2 Little Hooligans)

I also brought the aunts a treat, they need to move into some other craft besides knitting!! This cute little basket filled with  Presencia Perle Finca  should do the trick!

This was the first time in months that we were all here so what a wonderful opportunity for a family picture.

See, we are no different than any other red blooded family!!
Who am I? Hmmmm, that will be my secret!!
