I like Facebook friends who are enablers. One simply asked if anybody else was doing Bonnie Hunter's new mystery, "On Ringo Lake." Well. I haven't done any of the mysteries in the past- and I'm certainly not a member of the Bonnie Cult- but I *really* like the colors in this one, and I haven't in the past. So I started cutting on Friday night.
Saturday morning, I had my first little 9-patch.
By Sunday lunch, I'd completed the first 50 9-patches.
I like that my kids like to cook, and aren't afraid to try new techniques (especially this one, the youngest). When we were talking about what to make for Thanksgiving desserts, he first said "Peppermint bark!" and then thought for a few minutes and asked if it was possible to make peppermint bark truffles. So we winged it :)
I like having orphan blocks I can turn into a baby quilt. These are the first four blocks of Pat Sloan's Solstice quilt-a-long. I got distracted after four blocks- but they'll make a nice little quilt.
I like this face. This is Toffee; he's 7 and a complete goofball. He's not breed standard for a golden- he's about 107 pounds and has height to go along with it.
Being tall isn't enough for him, though- I swear he thinks he's a mountain goat.
He'll stand on anything he can find!
