Thursday and Friday Finishes

I finally have photos of the stitcheries I've been working on this week. This morning I added the borders and shipped them off to Treasured Threads. The finished projects will be on display in the Treasured Threads booth at the American Quilter's Society Expo in Des Moines, IA on October 8 - 11. If you happen to be in Des Moines then, please check out the booth. All of the samples are from Bronwyn Hayes book, Little Chicken Feather.

The first sample is Party Bear.

This one is Little Chicken Feather.

The last one is Skipping.

This is not one of the samples. It is a completed baby quilt for the new grandbaby I finished last night. DIL and I made almost matching quilt tops using the Wicked Easy quilt pattern. I finished mine this week. We will probably finish DIL's this Sunday.

Following Libby's lead I made some cookies today. I made Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies. They are DH's favorite. They are yummy.
I planned, cut the all the fabric and traced the stitcheries for my Stitcher's Angel projects this afternoon. Tonight I'm going to start stitching them. This weekend will be a weekend of watching Ryder Cup golf, Red Sox baseball and Patriots football. Lots of time for stitching!

Cute stitcheries! Are they called Cape Cod Oatmeal because they have cranberries in them?
