Harley, Houses and Hazel!

Really enjoyed my Spooky Halloween Box this year.  I resold it but will read more by that author!  I made a bunch more masks for Christmas gifts.  I have more time and fabric than money so getting creative as always!  This style for my oldest son and his step son.  I did not take pictures of most of them. Thinking I may do a few more too now that I have a giant thing of elastic!
I finally put together the BQ2 pattern for Rachel and Bryan.  They wanted a "Harley" quilt and this was the best I could come up with after years of searching for just the right thing!  It went together fairly fast and I have leftover fabric too.  I bought most of it and the panel at the quilt show not long before Covid since they had a model one made and I knew I had finally found the right one...even if I had to add to my stuff to move across country.  It still needs a good pressing and a backing made, but I did make the binding already.
Harley binding ready and waiting!
I have been making a house a day since the start of Covid.  Finally put them into blocks so I could see how big it was getting.  I have another block about done since this picture.  

So hard to believe Hazel is 8 weeks old already!  We were over at their place Sunday for the Packer game and I got a video of her copying her mom sticking her tongue out a few times!  She is supposedly way too young for this, but she was not doing it til Hannah did it!  I grabbed the camera and caught it.  She is such a happy baby and my daughter such a good momma already!  She reads to her and plays and practices tracking her eyes left, right, up, down!  So fun to watch.  Her daddy is great with her too and considering he had NEVER changed a diaper jumps right in and does what needs to be done.

All Good Things November!

Hazel is as happy as we are for a female Vice President!  Herstory in the making!  There were some tears at my house.  I hope our country starts coming together again soon.  
Still reading the Once Upon a Book Club boxes.  Some of them I resell when I am done with them.  They are a bit pricey but I really enjoy them so I am going to keep it up for now.  The Halloween Spooky box above was really good and I will find and read more y that author.  The Halloween Sweet box was too corny for me though it did keep me entertained!  Kathy surprised me with coffee and a pumpkin scone from down the street too!

I finished up the mystery I was doing with BJ.  I LOVE how it came out.  Bug and Sunshine were happy to model on it for me.  
The completed stockings!  I made way too many but all will have a good home soon!
The churn dash is for Hazel.  The hand sewn hexies (was supposed to be a doll blanket) finally got a home in Jay's stocking!
I added two more rows to this Easy Breezy and Friendship Star quilt top today but no new picture.  Sunshine likes it!

This is the Morewood Mystery's next clue.  Did the yellow flower like blocks and made the purple HST's this month.  Now that will sit til after Bonnie's next mystery I am sure.
Hannah and I took Hazel to the orchard (or at least to the store there) and we bought apples for eating and for baking.  I tried my hand at making apple pie for the first and last time.  It did not quite turn out right though it was good and edible it just was not quite right!
Hazel is a happy girl and I am trying to get as much time with her as I can.  I have waited way too long for her!

 Looking forward to making Grassy Creek  Quiltville Mystery as always.  I have been creating a Pinterest board with color options but am still undecided.  Are you getting in on that fun?  Info on the blog and it guarantees to be a fun time!

Secret Agent Mystery and Indigo Way Mystery Coming Along!

Here is the last clue for the Secret Agent Mystery Quiltalong  We had to cut things apart and do a bit of sewing before putting our top toge...
