Hello everyone! Well I was in the kitchen yesterday and started to get a whif of bananas. I looked in the bowl and sure enough the banana peelings were getting pretty brown. It was banana bread making time. Alex and I had a quick home ec lesson in bread making. We whipped up a simple but good recipe and tossed in some chopped walnuts. An hour later we had this wonderful loaf of banana-nut bread. I'm not a huge banana bread fan but it was really pretty good.
I finished my own strawberry a couple of days ago. It didn't turn out as nice as the one I made for Jolene. It will do though. I didn't take the time to make the pins. I may do that while the guys are away.
I've been working on a pinon pines quilt from designer/quilter Robert Callaham for quite some time now. I will get back to it, but I was in need of something for our bedroom windows. I made some valances using some of the same fabrics from the quilt to make prairie points along the bottom. I didn't want to make them very full as I wanted the prairie points to show nicely, however , I think that's why the header won't stand up nicely.I didn't realize until after I had taken the picture that I really need to clean the mini-blinds. Hopefully you can't see that in the picture!!
Here's a little closer look.
Well that's it today. Thanks for all of your nice comments. You all are great!!
'til next time,
