Elizabeth. Her monthly quilting group met on Friday night, and they have graciously let me attend for the second year in a row. Everyone brought something delicious to eat and Elizabeth baked a stuffed pumpkin. Highly recommended. The recipe is on her cooking blog.
This is one of the last blooms of the season in our backyard.
Some sneak peeks:
Melissa and Doug shape puzzles.
Diary of a Quilter has been putting quilt tops together from her Virtual Quilting Bee. Have any of you been following along with her great series? She has already put the quilt top together with the blocks made from prints. Here are the solids and there is my block down in the corner. It looks so different set on point. I'm excited to see how she decides to sash this one.
You pay a fee and get a box full of cool stuff. You can "get quilty for less than the price of a jelly roll." I decided to give it a shot. The October box showed up this week and included fat eighths of Minimalista by Art Gallery Fabrics, the sidekick ruler and a pattern by Jaybird Quilts, two spools of Aurifil thread, a sharps needle sampler, a custom fabric label, a cool bobbypin, and a paper piecing pattern.I'm pretty impressed.
I'll leave you with this thought. Which pretty much sums up things around this house.
