it is Fall and my taste buds are calling for pie

I been baking today  one of my favs Pumpkin pie. hubby went to get some whipped topping for it. gosh do they smell great. I am hoping to make a couple of apple pies tomorrow and maybe freeze one for later. Son Robert will stop by in the morning to get himself to a piece or two. it is one of his favs too. I got some sewing in last week I volunteered to make the first baby girl of 2018 a quilt . so the top is sewn and I have the backing fabric picked out so next off to the quilter. This week. I am hoping to find time to make a couple bibs and maybe a couple burp cloths  for Mom.    here is a photo of the 2 pies I made today

eclipse viewing

 Hello and what an event it was. I was able to attend a viewing of this in Sullivan MO\..Was with a group from all over the USA and one from the UK. it was so cool and emotional as well. I have some pics that were taken through a telescope lens so not the best. but a person in the group made a video of it from start to ending  that was so exciting to see. Well I will upload them to my main computer then post them here for you to see, sorry for now  I will be back with the pics and a link to the video he took.

The Christmas quilt belonged to her Jane she has passed now  a year and 1/2 already/
Sure do miss her chatting and laugh and fun 

Today I managed to get 2 bindings  on  quilts.  One is Jane's and it is her last one to have been quilted  I will take it to her hubby. It came out super nice It is a quilt along by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet. Mine is yet to be s finished this fall I am hoping. The second quilt I finished up today is my French Roses using Kate Spain fabrics.. I absolutely love it! 
I also have two others that need to be bound One is a heart quilt and the other is my African tile floor. So pretty and exciting really.  here is some pictures of the quilts that I  spoke of.

did some sewing this evening. wanted to change up a tad so I made some throw pillows for my TV room. I want to make a few more but for the bedroom and maybe the guest room have to see  what kind of fabric I have on hand . I also bought some new chairs  they are used  and new to me. they are super comfortable and just right for me. 
 I got these for a real good price and hauled them back with me from NC last week.
I was there visiting my 2 sisters in Weaverville. what a great time I had .
Got to visit their new quilt shop  two days in a row a really nice shop  .Called  Five Little monkeys in downtown Weaverville. If in the area worth the detour or stop! Pay them a visit you will be in awe of their place

until next time
