Autumn and Branson Pt. 2

Sorry for the delay in posting, I've been a bit under the weather. And speaking of the weather... Autumn is finally starting to make an appearance.

Here are a few more pics from the vacation. There is a tiny amusement park where Gentry and his cousins (of similar age) spent quite a bit of time. The youngest blonde is Keegan, and the red-haired little lady is Keegan's big sister, MaKinzy And the red-haired boy is Christopher. It was just down the street from the hotel and was a perfect way for the wee ones to spend their time.

I finished my sister's quilt. I don't know if she has posted the kit at her ebay store yet, but you can always contact her directly. I really like the way it turned out. It reminds me of scarecrows, I suppose it is the patchwork. Hopefully it arrived today, but I haven't heard if she likes it yet or not.

The guild's BOM this month was this Celtic block. I have never done this before, so I think it turned out quite well.

I also made this cute pumpkin! No sew, no glue and recycling, sounds great to me. And if I decide I need the fabric later on... no problem, it will come apart very easily. I found the instructions here. So quick and easy. Took about 5 mins from deciding to make it, finding the stuff and putting it together. I'll probably let Gentry make one (or more) for craft time during home-schooling.

Wonderful photo's Kimberly, the kidlets look like they had a wonderful time. Just love, love, love the quilt you did for your sister, so much so I ordered the pattern at the beginning of the week. Still undecided what fabrics to use on it.

I've done more celtic knotwork applique than I care to remember and let me tell you that yours is fantastic - you'd never ever guess it was a first attempt
