A CHRISTMAS QUILT

I just finished quilting this gorgeous Christmas Quilt. It is a customer's quilt and she didn't need it until after Christmas. So she will be able to enjoy it next Christmas. I love it so much that I think I will make one for our bed. I am posting some pictures of this beauty. I quilted it with lots of texture.

Blessings to all of my followers.

A CHRISTMAS QUILT

Happy Monday morning friends! A chilly morning here in Ontario, with a little bit of snow overnight. I just finished binding this Quilt for Christmas. Yes, I took time out to make something for myself.
I still have some customer quilts to quilt before Christmas, but hopefully I will have them finished up this week so they will have time to bind them.
Have a great day everyone!

QUILTING, QUILTING, AND MORE QUILTING

Such a busy time of year. I've been quilting like crazy and finally get a little caught up until next week when I have more coming in. I even pulled an all nighter getting a quilt finished that someone ordered. I just finished up this big blue beautiful quilt. It was so much fun to quilt.
I hope all of my American friends had a great Thanksgiving. We are enjoying a mild sunny day here in Ontario. 
Have a great day everyone.

NOVEMBER FLOWERS

Good Monday morning! The weather has been gorgeous here in Southern Ontario for about a week now. T shirt weather for sure. We have been getting lots of things done outside that we didn't think we would get to. My vegetable garden is all cleaned out and ready to rest for the winter until I plant new in the spring. I picked some flowers from garden this morning. I can't believe there are some still blooming. Here is a couple of pictures of what I picked. A nice display for my kitchen.

LOTS OF QUILTING

Good morning! The corn harvest is well underway this year, leaves are falling off the trees, and I have been doing lots of quilting. Here is a picture of this King size quilt I quilted for one of my customers. It is constructed using half square triangles in scrappy blues and creams. I love how it turned out.

HALLOWEEN BAT QUILT

I finally finished my Halloween Bat Quilt. I just finished binding it and sewing the label on the back. I made a "Creative" backing as I didn't have enough crow fabric for the whole quilt. I love the way it turned out.

AUTUMN

Good morning friends. It has been so gorgeous in southern Ontario lately. We had Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday and on Monday we had lunch back at the cabin. I got the door painted before the cold weather comes. The colour of the trees are gorgeous this year, but I am afraid it will be coming to an end shortly. The wind will be howling, blowing the leaves off the trees and the rain will come. Then the snow. Thankfully we have all of our wood split for the year. We just finished stacking it this morning.

Have a great day everyone!

FALL TABLERUNNER

 Seeing fall is here, I made this table runner for my kitchen table. I think it really sets off my fall centrepiece. 

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

SUMMER KITCHEN

Gorgeous weather here in Southern Ontario. I've been puttering in my summer kitchen the last couple of days doing some fall decorating. Here are some pictures I took today. I love to decorate my 1930 Findlay Oval cookstove and my hoosier for different seasons. Fall is my all time favourite.

FALL MUMS AND PUMPKINS AND KITTY CAT

 Good morning. I'm working out in the gardens today cutting back and weeding. My tub with fall mums and ornamental cabbage is looking good. Our cat "Wide Stripe" wanted to have his picture taken too.
Another gorgeous day here today.






PEAR AND APPLE CRISP

Made this delicious pear and apple crisp from our old apple and pear trees. It was so delicious. A great way to combine apples and pears for the fall season.

PASTA SAUCE

I picked all of the ripe cherry tomatoes this morning, so today I'm making some pasta sauce for the freezer. These are just about to go into the oven for slow roasting. My kitchen will be smelling wonderful all afternoon.

ANOTHER PRODUCTIVE CANNING DAY

Today was a productive canning day. I canned the last of the chill sauce. Now we are set for the winter. Another gorgeous day here, a little cooler but that's ok with me. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

CANNING SEASON

 A busy weekend for sure. I got some Chilli Sauce made, but I only made half a batch and will make more this coming weekend. We had some last night with sausages and it was so good. I love this time of year when the canning kettle is going. The kitchen smells wonderful.
I hope everyone is having a great week.
