Fall is in the air...

I woke this morning and thought...
I better get my cozy flannel quilts out!
With this chill in the air it feels like Fall has arrived.

I've been busy but haven't finished anything to take pictures of.
I have the cutest Folk Art Country quilt on my machine
that I'm going to work on today.

Wait til you see the whole quilt!

I'm working on my September Birdie stitchery block.
Collecting fabrics for the 15 minute table runner.
Here is the link to the FREE pattern.
The first one may take you 30 minutes but the rest are
15 minutes, I promise. They're really fun to make.
Our Quilt Guild is donating/sewing 40 runners for 
Holiday Cheer Baskets this year.

 Sandy sent me this photo and comment this weekend.
She said "my mom and dad would not eat zucchini bread.....to blah they said...
so last year I made your recipe and my dad LOVES it.........".

Here's the recipe again in case you missed it.
Click on image to enlarge for printing.
I wanted to bake soooo bad this weekend but
with just the 2 of us....well, neither one of us needs it.
 I am going to bake a Pumpkin Gooey Cake on
Thursday for our guild meeting.
I'll save you a piece.

On Friday I'm going to Madison for Quilt Expo.
It's a huge show with lots of eye candy.
And vendors...

My grandson helped me bake brownies
to take to our family gathering.
I thought you might enjoy the pictures.

And ......please
keep Sweet John'aLee and her family (Scrappy Appleyard)
 in your thoughts and prayers.
Her soon-to-be son in law was killed last week
in Afghanistan.


  1. I have had zucchini bread coming out my ears! I can't wait to try this recipe! Also can't wait to see the rest of that quilt!!

  2. I will be praying for the family that lost their loved one. What a tough time to go through. Bless them.

    Thank you for the recipe and please, please share the pumpkin one later this week.

    Quilt looks great. I am ready to start back to quilting now that summer is over and things are slowing down.


  3. I'm always sad to hear about the loss of one of our men. I think about the families the most.

    Your pictures are so cute and the chocolate zucchini bread looks yummy!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
