Modern Baby Quilt

 Having a new grandson calls for making a new quilt. Since I no longer work as a long-arm machine quilter, I had no long-arm to quilt with, so I took on the Bernina. It was so fun! This is how it turned out.

 He also needed a car seat cover. Chose minkie and polka dot cotton. The green and grey are the exact colors of his car seat!

Banana Bread

I had 4 bananas that were beyond eating fresh. Out comes the recipes and I usually go to Cathy's recipe, (my darling sister-in-law).

Here it is:
Banana Bread
Cream 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar.
4 eggs, one at a time
2 cups mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
Stir 4 cups flour, 2 tsp soda, and 1 tsp salt together. Mix into the creamed mixture.
Pour into 2 - 4 greased bread pans.
Bake @ 350 degrees 40 to 60 minutes. Check with a toothpick.

Moist and flavorful. Enjoy!

Coin Purses

I had some friends with birthdays this month so made little purses they can use as makeup bags, camera bags, or whatever.

I like to add beaded zipper pulls.

I think I need to make one for myself out of this red and white fabric.

 One of my favorite shops here in Ketchem has the most amazing window displays. Here they are at night. Charming!

Breakfast and Antiques.

We love to eat breakfast at The Kneadery.

This is there Country Fritatta. Loaded with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, bacon, hashbrowns, eggs and cheese. I end up ordering it every time. Yummo!

Photos from the Antique show.

This is a vintage half apron.

Cute sign.

Loving this display of Pyrex.

Nice to know that I am vintage!! We received a set of these Pyrex bowls for a wedding gift and I still have them in a box in the storage. The small one was going for $12.00.

Love this basket!

And these lawn chairs make me happy! My mom has some of the blue and pink ones.

Vintage mini Singer sewing machine. It was going for $70.

Vintage Quilts and Antique Show

Saw this at the antique show in Hailey Idaho.

Purchased this one from a lady at the antique show. It was her mother's and she made it from feed sack. It was made in the 1930's and was hand sewn!

Also purchased this one. Hand sewn too and made mostly from feed sacks in the 1930's.

Close up of the back.

Bought these from a different vendor. There were 13 of them. Two were the pink and turquoise fabric.

Close up of the blocks I bought.

Cute children's chairs.

Love the ironing board.

I am grateful for the modern comforts that we enjoy!
