Halloween and some sewing

I thougt I'd start off showing you the Halloween cookies Kini and Ola made. They had a lot of fun in the kitchen, and the cookies turned out really good.

Playing around with the Halloween props...

Sweet sugar cookies.....

Now onto some quilty business... I have a few of these "Billy" bookshelves from IKEA. Now they are all filled with fabrics, fabrics and more fabrics.  I always like to play with the newest fabrics first- make something out of them before they are in the "old fabrics" category (they are more fun when they are new...) but today I decided I need to use some of my older fabrics to make more room for new stuff.  SO I pulled out most of my blue fabrics from this one shelf, and made 2 1/2" strips, sewed strip sets and made lots of 9patches.

There is still a lot of blue fabrics left, but I've had a blast today, busting some of my stash.... I think I need about 130 9patches, so I'm only about half way through.

This is what is waiting for me to find more room.... my Houston goodies.... I have no idea where to start, I came home with lots of fun projects... but I know there is a kit for a snowman quilt in there somewhere- maybe I'll have time to make it before Christmas???


  1. I don't know which looks better. The cookies or the fabric!!
