...I'm still here! Gosh - if any quilters out there are contemplating retirement - anticipating all the time in the world to quilt - think twice!! I've never been as busy since I've retired! And have I found more time to quilt?? A tad, yes, but not nearly as much as I thought I would have. I'm not complaining, however, but would someone out there send me some more time!
Currently I'm working on a quilt called "Roll On" from the book Piece of Pie by Brenda and Bonnie Bailey. It's a layer cake friendly book - and I just happened to have a layer cake of one of my favorite designs - Fruitcake by Basic Grey! I've made 24 of these with 56 left to go. It's a very easy block to make and goes together quickly. Maybe by Christmas I'll at least have it on Vinnie and then on our bed for next Christmas!
Colors are changing really fast now in town. Here is the view from my dining room the other morning. Our Red Sunset maples are finally coming into their own. Next year they will be even bigger and provide us with a lot more shade!
Today I baked some Starbuck's Oatmeal cookies! Mr. Squash and I both love them and you can find the recipe here. Easy to make and oh, so good!
Sophie absolutely loves her retirement. If she only knew how to quilt so I'd have a helper - lol! I love this photo of her basking in a sunbeam and sitting on top of her heated bed with her catnip sock nearby. Doesn't get and better than this!
