a new car,a hockey game, some pumpkin goodness and customer time

SEW very happy ~ found this cute decal from lillybelledesigns  at keepsake cottage in bothell
traded my kia forte in for a vw tiguan

went to whl hockey game at comcast arena ~ everett's silvertips v kamloop's blazers... so fun... felt very canadian

baked and pureed  two heirloom pumpkins that isaac and ani grew...felt like a pumpkin factory in my kitchen, it made over 40 cups of awesomeness and i also made the best ever pumpkin lasagna with it [i couldn't find my exact recipe but if you add toasted walnuts and blue cheese to this one you will not be sorry] i soooo  highly recommend it if you have never made it  xo

susan's french general triangle quilt is done w diamond back ~ i love how easy it flows thru this quilt

patty's star quilt is done w all over star and loop ~ she made this special for her son in law who just became a us citizen xo

lindy's HAPPY  blue and yellow triangle quilt is done w a variation from packer wave ~ i love how simple this is

and i am finishing another one of lindy's today w dizzy izzy

so i have been busy catching up in the sewing room with some very beautiful quilts...feeling lucky to have such a great job...hoping to stay on top of things this busy holiday season....plus find a bit of crafting time.

a grand finish with heather ross's macaroni love story xo



it is DONE

and i LOVE it ~ this quilt was in the making for a long time...i did one or two  improv blocks at a time until it grew into a special queen size quilt for our bed

i  added extra borders all around cuz i think this baby is going to shrink even more when i wash it xo

so perfect with this panto
the teeny tiny unplanned surprise bits are my favorites

i LOVE  heather ross...i bought her special fabric from spoonflower a few years ago   more about her here
everything about this quilt is subtle and calm  xo
