Same but different - and DONE

Was a quick turn around on Clue # 4 this week.  I took a stack of these
and sewed them together to make something very similar but different. But the best part (times 40 each) it is done!

Finished the binding on Devin's Spidey Web quilt, ready to gift.  Insert "Happy Claps" here for another quilt finished (thank you to my friend and LA Kim Caskey) and thank you to Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville for your generousity, industry and talents for another free pattern.

On Sunday night I assisted with the cookie baking at my daughter Cynthia's, who lives on Candy Cane Lane. A little fund raiser for Slow Food Edmonton and the Edmonton Food Bank. The RULE is to make sugar cookie, but I never have been known to colour within the lines. So I made Double Chocolate Chip cookies (the recipe right off the Chipits bag), which took less time to get on the cookie sheet and a lot less room on the cookie making counter with 5 other busy cookie makers rolling away.
The dozens of fresh baked cookies were whisked out of the kitchen to the crew at the sidewalk who were also serving hot chocolate to those enjoying the light displays of residents up and down 148 st (aka Candy Cane Lane).

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas



  1. Looks like you are getting some nice variety in your mystery units. That "Spidey Web" quilt is spectacular! And, now, I am really hungry for something chocolaty!

    1. Thanks Kevin. The Spidey Web quilt was a lot of fun to make and it used absolutely everything in the strips and scrap bags, though it barely made a dent. Sew many quilts sew little time. The Spidey Web quilt would be another great done with your patriotic red, blue and yellows. As if you needed any more ideas. Merry Christmas from my family and home to yours.

  2. Love the spider web quilt - congratulations on the finish!

    1. Thank you Vireya, it really does feel great to finish, to say DONE!! Merry Christmas from my home and family to yours.
