This Week in 2012, Week 43

This week I finished piecing the intersecting stars for the Pillow Talk Swap.
Now to decide how to quilt it and finish it.
I'm thinking it needs red piping all around the outside.

I made these delicious pumpkin brownies from  a recipe I found on Pinterest.
My entire house smelled like fall
and they were really good.

I am almost finished listening to Rod Stewart's autobiography 
that I downloaded from
One more quick sewing session and I will be finished.

I forgot to show you the pouch I received in the zipper pouch swap at Sewing Summit.
It was made by Tammy who blogs at
I never saw her after the swap so I didn't get to thank her.

It's an open-wide pouch, so I will find a lot of uses for this one.

My daughter-in-law put my son's photo and their son's photo side by side.
Both are 6 years old in their photos. I'd say they look quite similar,

I've been working on some projects that I can't reveal until next week
and I also finished a quilt that deserves it's own post.

It's been a good week.
I hope your's was, too.
