November Ramblings

I was doing pretty good, managing to post at least once a week for awhile.  That didn't last long. It does seem like the days slip by so fast and before you know it, the pretty leaves have all fallen, the time changes and the stores have stocked the shelves with everything Christmas!  But not a lot going on around here. Even though this is the best time of the year for some nice motorcycle rides, unfortunately the Harley is spending some time at the shop again.  We are hoping it will be home in time to get one good ride in before the snow flies! 

In the meantime I have managed to get the binding on this quilt.  D was kind enough to hold it up so I could get a photo but the sun was kind of at the wrong angle and with his silhouette behind it, the colors are a little off. 

 Do you have an iphone?  And like me, do you have dozens of apps on it that you never use?  While blog hopping earlier today, I think I found one I actually might use!  Sue at Alderwood Quilts mentioned this quilting calculator app from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  It will definitely come in handy when trying to figure out how much fabric to buy for the bindings or backings, plus some other neat things!  Just search the apps for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  Thanks Sue!
I've been re-visiting my crochet skills.  This is one of my little projects.  Even though there are no little girls around this house anymore, I wanted to make something feminine.  Just hoping maybe it will fit  our friends' new granddaughter!   Of course, there's a boy version and hopefully someday soon I'll be able to post some pics with real live models instead of my arm!!

Have a good week everyone!

Awww man, you've missed one gorgeous week to be biking -- it's supposed to get cold up here this weekend. Hope you get a little biking time in the next few weeks. Your quilt is beautiful!!!
