crazy cubed . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I had every intention of posting over the weekend, but life is crazy and work is crazy and our weekend was crazy (with Boy Scouts, Disaster Relief training and church picnics all at the camp). Even so, I had time to do a little fall baking on Saturday . . .
I saw a recipe for and Apple, Honey and Brie Crostata in the current issue of Southern Lady and decided to give it a go.
It was very good with a cup of spiced tea as an afternoon snack!

I got some autumnal decorations out, too . . . 
You know it's October when ...

Hello, October! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Yep, another calendar page has been turned. "Hello, October" really has been replaced in my mind today with "whatever happened to September?" Sigh. Time marches on! I read an excellent article yesterday morning, sent to me by a dear friend, which helps put life into perspective. I am linking to it here for your reading enjoyment. It helped me to savor the day, simply for the pleasure of being

Red and White. It’s ALL about Red & White! from Lori East Quilts

Y’all do know that I love red, right? Specifically, red and white quilts. When I came in yesterday afternoon, there was a copy of Linda Pumphrey’s new book, Red & White Quilting, An Iconic Tradition in 40 Blocks, in the mail. Talk about happy mail! Yeah, it really was. I plunked myself down right then … Continue reading "Red and White. It’s ALL about Red & White!"

Did you ever have one of those weeks? from Lori East Quilts

Hey there! It’s only Tuesday, I know, but I am really having one of those weeks. I sometimes wonder who thought cramming so much stuff into my schedule was a great idea. Or, as one of my friends says, “It looked good on paper.” I’ll bet you know exactly what I mean. I have about … Continue reading "Did you ever have one of those weeks?"

Friday Fixer-Upper from Lori East Quilts

Happy Friday! I have another fixer-upper to show you this week. This quilt came home with me recently from one of my favorite “junk stores.” That’s my name for antique malls. Seriously, can you think of a better name? They sell so much junk that those of us who are looking for serious things have … Continue reading "Friday Fixer-Upper"

Is it time for coffee yet? from Lori East Quilts

How did it already get to be Thursday afternoon? I have been here, behind the scenes, working away. I’m not sure I’ve had enough coffee, though. Working hard, no coffee…Well, that’s sort of a lie. Today I have been working…ish. Yesterday I had to go do some appraisals, so I took a little road trip … Continue reading "Is it time for coffee yet?"

Here’s what I learned about Coronation Cord from Lori East Quilts

Yesterday, I posted a photo of a doily I got recently, and asked about the edging. Yes, I know the outermost edge is crocheted, but I wasn’t sure about those fuzzy things in between the crochet and the fabric. Several people told me it was coronation cord. Well, color me confused. I was familiar with … Continue reading "Here’s what I learned about Coronation Cord"

Happy Monday! from Lori East Quilts

Happy Monday to you! It was 37 degrees (F) here when I woke up this morning to thoughts of my to – do list resounding in my brain. Argh. Get up and get to work or pull the blankets over my head? The struggle was real. Until I heard the coffee pot beep. I did wait … Continue reading "Happy Monday!"

It’s Today! from Lori East Quilts

Hey there! Today’s the day!  It’s #Globalblockday for The 70273 Project. What does that mean? It means people the world over are joining in today to commemorate one, or a thousand, of the 70,273 people who were so tragically murdered by the Nazis prior to the Holocaust. These were people that the Nazis deemed unworthy … Continue reading "It’s Today!"

Another Fixer-Upper from Lori East Quilts

Yes, I have another fixer-upper. Or something.  Not a fixer-upper like on HGTV, mind. This is no house! It’s much more manageable. I found this little quilt top in an antique mall somewhere between here and Springfield, Illinois when I was coming home from MQX. I can’t remember exactly which one (there were several!), but … Continue reading "Another Fixer-Upper"

Kents (or Kent’s) Cloth of the Nations from Lori East Quilts

It was three years ago that I first published a blog post about the Kent’s (or Kents) Cloth of the Nations. Do you remember? You can read it here. Why my confusion about the name? Well, to my mind, since they were made by Percy Kent, the correct name should be “Kent’s.” But, the Internet … Continue reading "Kents (or Kent’s) Cloth of the Nations"

Y’all. There really is something coming soon. Lots of something coming, actually. I can’t tell you all of it yet because it’s been a busy week. I havent had time to do everything OR even think much. I’m trying to get all of the appraisals from MQX done, and that takes time, but my brain … Continue reading "Coming soon!"

a mixed bag . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I did some VERY BADLY needed organizing and deep cleaning in the Nook two weekends or so ago, so I've been able to spend snatches of time as they come along, working on an assortment of projects.  One of those is actually two of the same piece, mostly, which I created as a gift and then did another for a swap.  It hasn't been gifted yet, so I'll just show a little intriguing bit . . .
Ha!  In another week or so I'll share it in its entirety and by then I may have made a third one ...
