Here's some hand quilting detail on the quilt that currently consumes me. It's hand appliqued and hand quilted and I've been working on it for nearly two years. But, now I believe the end is in sight. I should have it done by Thanksgiving. I've learned a lot in the process. I think my hand quilting is quite adequate -- I get about seven stitches to the inch and it looks pretty good IMHO. And I LOVE doing it -- it really nourishes my obsessive tendencies and spares me from unpleasant obsessive activities, like housekeeping.

Logan's Obsession

Logan awoke yesterday morning and told me we had to get a chocolate cake mix and frosting. He had a notion that a chocolate cake with bananas and vanilla ice cream would be really good. So, he mooshed bananas in the batter and made this vanilla ice cream filled cake. He will serve it for dinner tonight when his girlfriend (!) dines with us.


  1. That quilt is gorgeous! And the cake sounds interesting - was it good? I'm not surprised Logan has a girlfriend - he's such a cutie!

  2. Girlfriend?! Who is this girl?

  3. Keep those pushy girls away from my boy!

  4. We need to check this girl out--photos, please!

    Your hand stitches are lovely. A completely handmade quilt is a nice metaphor for living. One stitch at a time, one stitch after another. You're always doing something, and you're always getting somewhere.

  5. Go Logan! That's so sweet of him to think up a cake for his date. He's gonna be a real catch.
