Photo Friday

I will just post a few pictures on this rainy day. 
I finished one of Jared's runners. I sewed the binding on last night while he was at class. We both aren't a huge fan of the colors of this runner, but overall I think it turned out pretty well. 

Today I made blueberry almond muffins for a friend that just had a baby. The blueberries are frozen from last summer. Yum.  

And I kept some for me... 

When I cook, I always take me eggs out in a pattern. It makes me happy when they are in some sort of order. I might rearrange them sometimes if Jared takes them from the wrong place. I know, I am weird. 

Martin was helping me put my quilt layers together yesterday. I have quilted all of it but the boarder. 

Here is a close up of some of the quilting. I have been practicing different quilting designs and I like the way it looks, but it takes five times longer. I just noticed my quilting gloves in the corner if this picture - they are really dirty and need to be washed. 

Here is what the back looks like. I can't make plain backing anymore. I just can't do it.  I made a pieced backing for one of my quilts and now I am stuck designing a front and back to my quilts. 

While I am in the bathroom getting ready in the morning I put the gate on Martin's door so he doesn't get into trouble. He plays quietly with his toys while I am in the shower. Once he hears that I am out if the shower he starts to pull on the gate and talk to me. So I peak my head out the door and he makes this face at me. Then I duck my head back in and pop out again.  He thinks it is a great game. 

Enjoy your rainy Friday!!  Are you working on any fun projects? Cindy gave me a new magazine to flip through yesterday and now I am dreaming up all sorts of ideas.

Thank you for the muffin! It was so good and I really loved the almonds in it! When you post the recipe I will try to make some for Josh because I think he would really like them. I bought a giant muffin pan a couple months ago but haven't made anything in it yet.

I just bought a bunch of frozen blueberries and other berries at the store and I need to do something with them. You will like this - usually frozen fruit costs $5 a bag at Martins, but they were on sale 2 for $7, and on top of that, they had another sale going on that if you bought $25 worth of frozen fruit, you would automatically get $15 off. So they ended up costing like $1.50 a bag and I thought you'd be proud of me for getting such a good deal. :)
