CATCHING UP, BAKLAVA , AND BONES

This has been a busy week.  I have been working on finishing up as many charity quilt tops as possible.  The end of the charity quilt push is October.  I have a goal and sadly I am a bit short of my 12 for the year.  So, I am trying to do a bit of catch up.  

The blue night sky planet fabric was on the free table at my guild meeting earlier this month.  Just enough to make a 40 by 40 inch child's quilt with the addition of some scrap fabric in my stash that had little gold stars on the light blue background.  Now this is a fast quilt top, but once quilted by the group it will be really cute. 

This floral cross quilt top helped me clean out  that bin of scrap fabrics.  

I finished the first six blocks of my Alex Anderson on-line project this week.  Moving on to the two pineapple blocks this week.  

This project has kept husband and I very busy for two full days.  This is tray one of two we got into the oven this week.  My grandson Ben's Bar Mitzvah is the 2nd of October.  So our contribution to the luncheon afterwards is Baklava along with some addition cookie baking.  We turned out over 140 pieces in the two Baklava trays.  That along with a good 10 dozen or so macaroons should at least start putting a dent in the luncheon menu.

Zoey got a new treat this week.  Looks like a really big bone for such a little 7 pound dog.  We got her at just 8 weeks old and she is now almost 7 months.  She has plowed through two of these previously in the 5 months we have had her.  I will admit thank goodness she loves them so much.  Her teething has been limited to these bones and not my furniture.

  3. Mmm, baklava, I love it and only know of one cafe that makes it. Needless to say, when we travel into the big city I make sure I buy a couple of pieces to take home. You made two huge trays, quite a production line going in your kitchen.
    It's always good to see new ideas for donation quilts, strippy quilts are fun and easy to stitch up, and the floral cross is so sweet
