This is it folks, post number 100. I also realized that this Friday will be the one year anniversary of my blog, so it's a double celebration! I was trying to think of something to make to give away, and though it is still Summer, my mind was on Fall, so here is what I ended up doing....All the fabrics I bought in Utah, and the background is my current favorite fabric in the world, a gorgeous Kaffe. I bought 1.5 yards of it, which if you know me is amazing as I usually just stick to fat quarters. It started to rain while I was taking the photo, hence the tiny water drops on it, but I will remove them before I send it to you. Unless you particularly want them:)
Instead of my usual machine quilting, I did some big stitch quilting in different colors. It was so much fun - I want to make myself one now!So all you have to do to be in the running is leave a comment on this post, and tell us all what your favorite season is and why. Mine I think has to be Fall, as I hate the heat of Summer and the cool crisp air of Fall means you can put on sweaters and feel all cozy. Plus it is just beautiful here in New Hampshire with the turning of the leaves. And of course, the holidays are so much fun - Halloween and Thanksgiving. Oh and one more - school finally starts again. That may be the best thing of all about Fall ;-) Talking of Fall, can someone tell me why this is happening under our maple trees? I thought it was Summer. Plus some our other leaves are turning yellow and orange. Way too early - but I say, bring it on!
Today has been dreary and rainy but I love that kind of weather. We went to the library and checked out a bunch of DVD's, came home and the kids and I snuggled up in bed and have been having a movie marathon. For lunch I decided to be the mother of the year - look what I made us to eat... THAT, folks, is grilled PB&J with sliced bananas and chocolate drizzled on top. Oh yes it was delicious! I was a popular Mum for a while there at lunch! It was the perfect rainy day treat. But I digress.....
Because this is a double celebration week for me with the 100 posts and the one year anniversary, I will put some extra things in the package - maybe some felted wool and little goodies. Whatever I find around here that I think would be fun for you to play with!
Thank you everyone for making the last year of blogging thoroughly enjoyable. I love reading all your blogs and do so constantly. It may be a slight obsession. I love your comments, they make my day each time I read them. Thank you thank you THANK YOU! I will draw a name this Friday, the blog's anniversary!
