through my window

I put the finishing touches on my Doll Quilt this morning. I am really happy with the way it came out. It felt good to finally have something finished around here! I started this quilt when the leaves were still on their trees, at their peak color. Now they are gone, the trees bare, and I have this quilt a nice reminder of what I saw through my sewing room window. It's too bad I have to give it away.
I got a note on etsy today that one of my wristlets is being featured on Indie Parade Blog. I have to admit I've never seen the site, but you really must check it out. It's full of really cool things!

Isaiah and I are headed up to my in-laws today. I am so excited about cooking, baking, and spending time with family. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and safe travels.

The quilt is awesome Katie! I'm sure everything will be fine for Thanksgiving, even if they don't come. Whatever. All this extra testosterone is making me quite irritable these days, lol. :)
