Apple Day

Day 4 of Blogtoberfest.  So far, so good.

That feeling of wanting to bake something never left me after our trip to the Markham Fair last Sunday.  So this morning I baked a Mrs. Van's Dutch Apple Cake.  So easy and now my house smells fantastic.

This is my latest journal quilt.  It's based on a pattern that Barb from Bejeweled Quilts sent me.  I tried to free motion quilt it, but my machine did not cooperate.  The thread bunched up on the back and sometimes it didn't pick up the bottom thread.  I still haven't gotten it fixed and I don't know when I can it over to the repair guy.  So I just sewed the binding on it and took the worst of the quilting out.  I will fix it when I have my machine working properly.

The Apple cake looks yummy.
Sorry to hear about your machine. Hope you get it fixed soon.

I can smell the apple cake here. Too bad the quilting didn't work out. A very cute project though!

Your apple cake looks very tasty ;-). Sorry to hear that you are having issues with your sewing machine. I hope you will be able to get it repaired in the near future.
