I love your little projects and Times Nine has my heart a thumping! Do you know what background fabric that is that you used for the border? Gorgeous!


I was going to pick up a copy of the new 100 blocks magazine today but didn't get there...I stuck my nose out the door, felt the cold, the rain that was trying to turn to snow...I could actually hear the little drops saying in tiny voices, "I think I can, I think can, I think I" *splat*...some evidently couldn't, so there were a few snow flakes but not many. However those raindrops were very cold as was the air and the breeze...SO, I didn't go anywhere except the post office to mail the cookies I made yesterday to my grandson back in Maryland at Andrews AFB. I just didn't feel right asking my hubby to drive me all over looking for the magazine. OH, I know where it is, but I thought I would start where I knew it wasn't, browse a bit, then move on, until I was ready to head home, which is of course where I stayed after getting back from the PO. Wow, I'm out of breath and haven't said a word!!! Now Carrie, if you don't have a headache from my ramblings, I wanted to tell you that I love the framed Times Nine project. I adore Jo's patterns and fabrics anyway, but really like the way it looks framed. *even though I think it's a pretty sneaky way to get out of quilting it, LOL. Well, I've rambled enough, bedtime for Bonzo around here. Big Hugs, and scratches for Rosie. Ummm, the hugs are for you Carrie...


lol, I hit the grocery store today and it was so crowded. I sighed a big sigh and got out of there as quickly as I could! ;0

Thanks for the oatmeal tip. I usually make instant because I'm impatient. ;0


I love that you framed that little quilt top. Great idea!!


You will probably like this recipe: http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/breakfast/recipe-baked-pumpkin-steel-cut-oatmeal-159872. I top it with the turbinado sugar, milk and candied pecans. 1-1/2 cups pecans, 2 Tbs maple syrup bake on cookie sheet @300 for 20-25 minutes? They are beyond scrumptious and I must hide them from DH not to mention myself if I want any for my steel cut oatmeal.

The little quilts are just darling. But what does one do with them? And no, I don't have any more wall space....

Great little quilts! One can never have enough! Times Nine may be on my next to make list. I'm headed out to the store today with Mom to pick up our T'giving fixins. Must look at the magazine rack for those two issues. Would have loved to see the red and white exhibit in person so can't wait to see them in a magazine. Happy Turkey Day to you and Rosie.

Found looks very interesting. But totally out of my budget. I really like that dresser. Wouldn't that be fun to fill with all of our sewing goodies? The 100 Blocks magazine is great. I'm saving them aside for a retirement project.


I love those little quilts you made and framing the 'raw' top is a fabulous idea!!! I'm headed for the market in less than an hour so the mags will go to the top of my list. And I'll have to try the oatmeal recipe. Love oatmeal, hate instant.

Archie the wonder dog

I love the mini quilts you've made - gorgeous! And thanks for the porridge recipe, I'm going to give it a go!


love the little quilts, and especially like the idea of framing them. I also love me some steel cut oats and really don't mind waiting for it to cook because it is so much better than instant, however, can you guess what I will be doing tonight at around 10:00 p.m. Thanks for the tip!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Carrie. I love the little framed quilt - blue and gold... just precious!

Mary Flynn

My heart skips a beat for the little quilts....love em!

Sandie~ call me crazy

Oh my~ you must be related to me! :-) I love oatmeal! And to cook it ahead of time and reheat is my favorite way too. Your little quilts are lovely! And yes, I can get into trouble browsing magazines too. LOL Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Joann McLean

I also make overnight oatmeal but to make it even better I brown a nice sized pat of butter in the saucepan before I add the water and then the steel cut oats - tastes and smells just like oatmeal cookies! Yum!

Ulla's Quilt World

Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)
