In the meantime, we only made one new recipe in October, but it was really good! This one is from the Feb 2007 issue of Midwest Living and is the Wild Rice and Turkey Soup. It came at the perfect time, as it cooled down (before it warmed up again!), and I love soup on a cool day. This was a really tasty soup, and I bet we will make it again with leftovers from Thanksgiving!
In the sewing studio, I was busy prepping for both our Guild Quilt Show and my annual retreat to Shipshewana. Here are the projects I finished during the month:
- Teal Riviera Purse - which I entered in the quilt show and won a 1st place ribbon for!!
- Made a back, loaded, and quilted a comfort quilt for a Girl Scout from my troop (when I was a kid)
|Comfort Quilt - pieced by my mom, quilted by me|
- Sandcastle wallhanging top (a kit!)
- Wonky Reindeer top
- Star tree quilt top
- My first Bendy Bag
- Midnight Mystery part 2 (which I haven't taken a picture of yet - I will get one when I do the next step!)
No cross-stitch was finished in October, but I got really close, so you'll see at least one for November!
All in all, it was a great month between the retreat and the quilt show and I think it has spurred me to keep moving on a few things.
