    Default It's been a while!

    Some of you may know that Joe and I are planning to leave California. Since our return from the Netherlands we have been working very hard to fix up the house to sell it. Hopefully, in the spring we'll be able to make the move. Yay!!!!! Like I said, hopefully. hahaha In the meantime I try to fit in time to make quilts. This one is a design I copied from an Amish quilt website. It's not quite big enough for a queen so I'm hoping the recipients will find a use for it if they are no longer sleeping in a full. They are lovers of all things Art Deco and Art Nouveau. When I saw this quilt design I decided it would fit right in with their home. It's incredibly long so it will easily tuck in and over the pillows. I hope they like it. We'll find out Friday when we head to Philadelphia to begin the process of finding a home there.

    I also thought I'd throw in some photos of my latest cookies for Halloween. The cookies made it safely to their destinations. The cookie house wasn't so lucky. I had a feeling it might not make it in one piece. Good thing I took photos so my daughters could see what it was supposed to look like. hahaha

    I hope you all had fun on Halloween. Now on to Thanksgiving.

    Hey Rebecca, how have you been! We've missed you!

    Great job on the quilt and the cookies are too cute.

    So where are you'll planning to move after you sell your house?

    Hello and welcome back! I see you've been busy as usual. What a pretty quilt, and ginormous!! Could you tell us how many yards went into the backing cause it looks really big and I am just curious, okay nosey LOL!! Your cookies make me hungry just looking at them, they are almost too pretty to eat. Sugar cookies are my downfall, my very favorite. At Christmas I beg my family dont eat the sugar cookies I have dibs on them. I made a gingerbread house with the kids when they were little. It was great fun but as I recall it was much more work involved than people think. Too bad it got ruined in the shipping. Good luck finding a house in Philly. You will have to get in the groove by binge watching House Hunters!
