Spices, Pinwheels and Stuff

So, do you all have your Dinner Plates together?  Lois takes the cake for getting hers posted!

We're getting ready for our talk at the Des Moines AQS show September 30th.  If you can make it, we'd love to have your company.  There will be prizes and quilts unearthed to make a never -before- seen appearance.  You can be the first!  It will happen before the snow flies and we're struck inside to sew all winter.

On with the fall domestics...

Architectural  spices, duplicate towers!

jill here......Have you ever gone to the grocery store and know you need a spice that you didn't put on the list?  So you go shopping through the alphabet, looking, looking.  Okay, they're reasonably priced so it's not the end of the world if you cover your bases and get an extra (and another and another).  I never realized how many spices start with the letter "C".  No wander I couldn't find the cumin when I needed it!

Gotta merge, purge and reorganize!

Neat and tidy in alphabetical order.
Now where's the cumin?

Baby pinwheels ready to send to Miss  Ivy.

Stripes are the greatest for pinwheels and binding.

With Minkie on the back, she'll be warm all winter.

Until next Tuesday....


  1. The baby pinwheels are delectable! And did you know that one brand of chili powder has cayenne pepper as an ingredient? I was amazed when I read the label.

  2. Amazing work Jill... thank you!!!
