Vomit Logs

I've been slowly working on the Scrappy Stash Quilt-a-long over on Ellison Lane Quilts.
The blocks go super quick when I get a chance to work on them.  (Boo on Jury duty)
Monday I got this far:

Then yesterday I watched some Downton Abbey on Amazon Prime and made a few more.

I'm calling these Vomit Logs because I am using any and every type of scrap fabric I have.  They are sorta wild!!!!  I plan on trying out quilting it myself.  EEkkkkk!!!   I hope it doesn't turn into a mangled mess!!

I have a few finished knitting projects that I will try to get put up soon.
Happy Crafting!!!

October Farming

Not sure about you but I think it is too cold outside to do much farming here.  So I will do the inside kind.  Quilting!!!

Noon and Night- somehow I made two of these, but that is ok, I have to repeat some anyways to get the amount I need for a King sized quilt.

Old Windmill

Now I noticed that I skipped one in the book, Northern Lights!  Will have to do that one next!

Been doing a few other crafty things and getting everything ready for winter.  None too soon because the snow is on the ground.
Happy Crafting and Farming!!!

Foodie Stuff

I got a new cookbook.  Now if you could see my cookbook cabinet you would say, "Why did you need another cookbook?"
Cookbooks are so wonderful.  They are like little books of tasty treasures.  All the possibilities!!

Being the wierdie that I am, I always like to start at the front of the cookbook and work my way through.  That didn't work this time.  The front cover caught the kids eyes and that is what I made first. Homemade pop tarts.
I behaved and didn't try them.  If I would have I would not have been able to stop and I would have eaten them all.  So I let the girls eat them.  I made jam, nutella and cinnamon sugar.  The jam and nutella were the favorites.

Yes, these look a bit unfortunate.  But I just had to share.  haha

Next time I will be a little less messy with the egg wash.

And while those were cooking, I  found some bugs in my sugar!!

Just kidding.  I made some vanilla sugar with some of the leftover vanilla beans from my vanilla extract.  It is crazy expensive to buy but this is super easy and cheap to make.  This will be so yummy sprinkled over fruit or on top of cookies.
Now that I have gained 5 pounds by posting this, I had better go to the gym.

Oh my...
Just what I need.

Have you joined Threadbias?

I am going to try, really hard, to mostly use it as a place to organize my quilting projects.  I can already see that I have WAY too many WIP's.  I need to be one of those finisher people!!!

So I added this:

and this:

and this:

And I could go on and on!!
If you join up, I am aksherry.
I had better get to cracking on all these projects!!
