A Little of This and That

I haven't posted much lately.  That's because I didn't have anything to post.  But I have been busy.  My DD asked me to make some small bags for her Reading Recovery kids to put their books in when they take them home.  So here they are.

I also made some fabric balls.  These are done with pentagons.  My sewing machine is still not well.  But these balls can be made by hand.

And some dish cloths and a scrubby.

On the weekend my grandson celebrated his 3rd birthday.  The theme was Thomas the train.  My DD made this cake for him.

Isn't he cute.  She found the instructions on the Internet.  William loved him.  I went to my.Quilt Group this morning.  It was cool but it didn't rain.  It did feel like fall though.  The trees are changing colours.  Not as much as in other years.  Our weather has just been too crazy!

We haven’t had brilliant colors this year, either. That said, I live on the coast, so there aren’t many deciduous trees, either. Unless I get out and travel around, I don’t see much. It’s a bit nippy here, now, too. I’m winding down my sew8ng, get ready to migrate. Like you, I’m working on small, easy to finish projects. Love your bags. They are perfect! Happy belated birthday to your grandson. Boy, that was a fast three years!

Nice to see a comment from you on my site. Those are cute reading bags. I remember when our grandson loved Thomas. still have the trains and tracks. The cake turned out lovely.
