It’s  officially Fall in WI the  smell of pumpkin bread baking in the oven, and the chilly weather. Did I say chilly?” They are predicting  SNOW flurries for Halloween!
We are heading up to Green Bay this weekend. Mike  is going to the GB Packer game Monday night. Not me,  I’m going to stay warm and cozy with the granbabies.

Today is the first time I’ve baked anything, since my stroke.  Figured we didn’t need any sweet treats around tempting us. But I love to bake!The house smells soooooooogood.
Tomorrow I’m sewing with the girls at the retreat house. Need to bring a little Pumpkin bread along. And then take  some to GB.   My recipe makes 3 loaves.
It's my favorite.

I get by with a little help from my friends

I get by with a little help from my friends, okay truth be told….with A LOT  of help from my friends.

This is my first finished quilt on the long arm since my stroke. Yeah!!! Not perfect by any means, but FINISHED!! There was not a flat seam in the quilt. Talk about wavy, especially  those curved edges this quilt top needed to be rescued. Don’t you love the cheddar orange centers?

I’m doing better. Getting downstairs to my sewing room  more these days.  Friends coming over and helping to organize my stash and UFO‘s (unfinished projects). I’m afraid to admit the number, let’s just say, Love to start cutting new fabrics… my problem is finishing…LOL
