The cookie is printed on fabric. It doesn't look as orange in person as it does here. Isn't it weird how sometimes you can't fix the colors in an image no matter what you do?
So aside from that, I'm just quilting, quilting, quilting today. I finished one row of the sewing machine blocks yesterday, and then started working on the surrounding sashings. Taking my cue from the ruler fabric, I'm outlining the rectangle and then putting ruler hash marks along the sides. It's a little hard to see here. I'm using a white YLI machine quilting thread on the top.
You might be able to see it a little better from the back. I'm using a pink YLI machine quilting thread in the bobbin.
I don't have a particular fondness for YLI machine quilting thread, but I won some in a photography contest once. It was a kitties on quilts contest put on by The Quilt Pattern Magazine. Actually, Gracie won the contest with her cuteness in this image.
Here's how the quilting is looking from the back of the quilt:
Tonight, we're getting together with the rest of the family to celebrate Erik's birthday this past Friday. Erik chose Indian cuisine for his birthday dinner, and so that's what we're doing.
It rained hard yesterday, but today we're back to a lovely day of sunshine. Fall tends to be nice in the Pacific Northwest. This is the view out of my window this morning.
