A few more

Three things to be happy about:
(1) well-worn jean jackets
(2) faded flannel shirts
(3) banana bread baking

I don't usually go for banana bread but someone had a recipe on her blog for banana bread that looked good.  I don't remember who it was, but she put over-ripe bananas in the freezer to keep, then when she was ready to make the bread all she had to do was thaw them out.

I had to get right up when I woke up this morning - 8 o'clock appointment at the loctitian, eeeegg!  Anyway, I turned on Fons and Porter (6 am) and they were starting a new series using special rulers...

pretty table runner!

It seemed they were talking really fast on this show...  I saw an article on TV a few years ago that sometimes the program runs too long, so to fit it all in they run it in a compressed format, which results in a faster-than-usual show.  You can't hear it with your ears but sometimes my body reacts to the fast format... I feel really tense.

Thanks everybody for your encouragement on my crumb-along blocks!  I did three more - a star

a heart - I thought I'd see how it looked without a border...

and a nine-patch

For some crazy reason my photography hasn't been too clear lately, I don't know what setting I changed on my camera.  The star was photographed but I had to scan the heart and the 9-patch.

Well, sew forth and sew on til later... gotta grab some breffus so I can run!


  1. LOL - I love using frozen bananas for bread and so doe smy 4yr old! Your crumbs look good! I dont have the courage to post my stars and didn't even try a heart.
