Made in October

I know I say it every month, but seriously, where did October go? I feel like it was just August and now it is November 1! I'm not doing well with time passing so quickly. My grandkids are growing before my eyes and of course that means I am getting older faster than I really want to. But enough about time...here's what I made in October.
As usual, I include my special food makes because they take a lot of time and it's a good excuse why I haven't gotten much done in the sewing department of late.


1. Seventeen pounds of raw olives have now been brined, flavored and jarred.
2. My 2013 Stitch Tease Bee quilt, Dreaming of the Caribbean, is finished. It still needs a proper photo shoot.
3. Stitch Tease bee block of flying geese for Val.
4. 2 Log Cabin blocks for Emily in Modern Stitching Bee
5. Cascade Quilt, gifted to our son and his fiance for an engagement gift.
6. Kombucha
7. Serpentine Socks
8. 2 blocks made and donated to Quilts of Valor
9. Pumpkin Spice Cake with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting.
10. Simple Clutch for a friend
11. Modern Maples quilt top

Linking with Lynne. Thanks Lynne for hosting this fun linky party each month. It's so fun to see everyone's makes for the month.
