(1) baked pork chops
(3) pumpkin butter
(I think somebody's a little hungry!)
Last year I got a pint of pumpkin butter from the Kitchen Kettle Village and it was really delicious! This year I brought home two pints, LOL.
I also got an "oops" bag of broken gingerbread people. If they're broken it's half the calories, right??
My goal this year was to get lots of white-and-black, to beef up the variety in the churn dash blocks I'm working on. I usually load up on neutrals because no matter what other colors Bonnie Hunter uses in her mystery quilt, neutrals will play a definite role. But I have plenty already, so I didn't let myself get tempted in that direction.
I like words, so I had to get some of those, plus a newsprint piece. That winter themed piece at the upper right was so pretty I that I broke my self-imposed rule and got a whole yard!
I got a fat quarter of mustaches ... the print is sorta big and I wasn't sure how well it would work with the 6" churn dash blocks. Same goes for the ampersands in the top picture.
For the most part the prints were either small or teeny, always a good choice!
I made blocks from two of the iffy pieces to see if they play well ...
I think I'll save the mustaches and the ampersands for another project, they sort of overpower the block. Since I pieced them I'll use em though.
And did you notice I had to sneak in a coupla red pieces? They were so pretty I "had" to get some!
And so another trip goes down in history, leaving me with deep satisfaction with the fabrics I got, and fond memories of all the ones I left behind! Sew forth and sew on til later...
