Button Flowers

Terry posted the site for the round petal flowers on FB for me.  I then decided to try pointed petals designed from my own idea.  I do like them. I then put them on round magnets.  I am sure there are many other uses for them so we will have to see what other ways I can use them.

2 Candle Mats

Here are 2 candle mats I finished today.  They are part of 2 different Christmas gifts.  I can post them because they do not follow me on my blog.

9-11 Never Forget

We will never forget what happened on 9-11-2001.  Today is a day to think back  to the tragic day in all our lives and the families it hit the hardest.  Prayers out to all.

Christmas Breads

Here is a picture of the first 20 small loaves of my Christmas breads.  They are now wrapped and in the freezer.  Round 1 done, only 3 more to go.  I bake it every 10 days.  I also make some larger loaves as gifts or to eat.  I give 3 different flavors in a gift bag to friends.  Today I made 10 pineapple and 10 banana.

This and That.

Here is what is happening around here. Here are 3 bottle covers I made for friends.

I saw these cute monster corner bookmarks made on plastic canvas.  And had to try them.  I think any kid would love them.

My first block of the Charming Star sew along with Terry.  It really is square but it is laying on the curve of the love seat.

Yesterday's sunrise.

A friend lent me this book and I could not put it down once I started it.  Beautiful quilts made by Goldie.  The name Is Desert Trader   The life & quilts of Goldie Tracy Richmond  By Carolyn O'Bagy Davis.  It is well worth reading.

Wayne County Fair, Wooster Ohio

We went to the fair on Sat.  These are the pictures either myself or hubby took.  Here they are washing the animals to get ready for showing.

She must have been tired.

Having breakfast.

This is a Scottish Highlander being washed. 

Close up, they have very long hair.

This Miniature Horse and her baby.  The baby was not even 24 inches tall.

Hubby looked at the tractors.

We watched the Horse Pull and the team with the dark gray horse won the light weight class.  They were from Maryland.  We started watching the heavy weight class but it started to rain so we went and ate BBQ chicken.

I love this jacket.

I love these 2 quilts.  The one on the right has pieces not an inch in size.

I like this one too, sorry it is a little blurry.

This painting of canning jars look so real.  It could be a photo but it is not.

Did not stay too long after seeing all the stuff in the buildings because of the rain.

Project, New Quilt and Herman

Here is a 3 piece purse set I made for a friend.  She supplied the fabric and I did all the sewing.  There is a small purse for over her head and shoulder, cell phone case that is hooked to the purse or can be unhooked, and a glass case.  She gets it tomorrow so I am waiting to see how she likes it.  I do not think she will be looking at my blog this late to see it before she gets it.

These are the 5 inch squares I am using for my Charming Star Quilt Sew Along with Terry.  I did not have charm packs so I cut all my squares.  I just need to get my fabric for the star part and get it cut and I will be ready to sew along.

It is that time of year again that I start my sour dough called Herman to make all my Christmas breads.  It is one that you bake every 10 days.  I will have enough in the freezer by the middle of Oct. to give to all our friends.
