the baby quilt is done and it's large enough for a toddler bed too...which is good. the polka dot backing left enough for the binding AND enough for binding another quilt too, all cut and ready for whenever. *** first on today's list is the next block in the marcus bros sew-along. our summery weather is leaving today so more time for sewing in the days to come. next is to finish some swap blocks and a donation quilt. **** with 49 days to retreat, plenty to do while enjoying early autumn weather before snow flies. autumn is my favorite season of all, so happy that it's almost here!

vicki's house! you can hop on over to see a better photo and the other things i sent her from the rocky coast of maine. across from marden's, which is around the corner from where i live is a specialty cook store, and i found the honey and chocolate bar there. the postcards i had picked up when mom and i breakfasted in boothbay earlier this summer. the fabric from marden's of course, and the thread came in the box i had won earlier this year. the little quilt is a bit wrinkly, but i washed it and hate to put my quilts in the dryer feeling the heat is too harsh for the fibers. she seems genuinely pleased with all the little gift items, but i liked them too so that is good all around.
