20131124-180658.jpg Easy peasy. I brought home a crate full of apples, so it was time to start using then up. Premade pie crust, apples, caramel sauce, walnuts, Himalayan salt + 15 minutes @ 425 degrees.

Parade!

Why, yes! We were in a Christmas Parade.

20130915-135143.jpg We took another ride on the GSMR today with Miss Dorothy. It was, as always, wonderful! By chance it was also Rail Fest in Bryson City so we also got a little shopping done (hello, Dora-the-explorer hat) and some bouncy castle bouncing. Fun times!

20130906-084312.jpg The plan was to start with a centered 9-square block, and then move out from the middle with variations on that block.

Quilt: Space Robot

After babysitting for a soon-to-be 4-year-old boy we made a visit to the Asheville Cotton Company. He asked for a space robot blanket so I made this one for his birthday today.

Hamlet.

Quilt: Cake Boxes

This quilt was made from a Layer Cake pack I picked up on sale at FatQuarterShop. I really, really love this shop.
