Fall Quilt Finish

I showed a picture of this quilt when I was pinning it.  Here it is all quilted and bound. This was on my resolution quilt list on the right.  So I get to say another one is finished!


 And here is a little close up.  I should have pressed it before I photographed it, but I was in a hurry as I was packing fall stuff up today.


 I also whipped this little runner up this week.  I didn't want to start a big project as I'm preparing for the Bonnie Hunter En Povence mystery which starts this week.  Found this paper piece block from We All Sew's Sugar Plum Runner quilt along and adjusted the block to make a runner.  Probably give it away as a gift or save it for next year's guild boutique.


Two weekends ago, I went to Wonder Valley Ranch and had a retreat with my friendship group.  We were a small group but we had fun.
They treat us well there although if more people aren't going to come we will just go to our house in Cambria for a long retreat.  The only problem with that is we would have to do our own cooking and cleaning.  I got a lot done on the retreat too.  I did make two of the Santa Belt pillow tops (didn't get pictures before I sent them but you can see one here.  I also made this little bag to hold my sewing supplies together.
and this little basket
I also got caught up on my Fat Quarter Shop's designer mystery blocks.  (No pictures.)

Last weekend I went to my dad's to have a Thanksgiving dinner with him and my brother and his family.  My aunt and uncle and cousin were on their way south for a wedding and stopped by so I was I able to see them too.

Here's my cousin Carla and my dad, with one of his trash cans that he gave her.

And here is my dad and my Aunt Betty and Uncle Wayne.  Betty is my mom's younger sister.  It was so nice to catch up with them.

Thanks for looking. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and try to stay warm.  And with that I'll leave you with a picture of one of my dogs keeping warm. This was a day before I started turning on the wood/gas stove which is where she spends her evenings now.  My husband took this picture with his old crappy phone so the quality isn't great.
