Your little mouse is so cute Helen and I love your little black and white birdies too!
Your quilts are as always stunning.
Glad you had a lovely family party at the weekend ... isn't it lovely to have nature close to home to enjoy.
Have a lovely new week,

That walk to your little seaside town looks so delightful. We too have many trails here, but with sections of dense woods on each side, which make me uncomfortable at times. Love the Fall leaves - and your beautiful fruit themed quilts. Lovely fabrics in each. Your little mouse is so super sweet - you do such intricate sewing on these. Love them!

Lovely photos and quilts. The pinwheel pattern stirs the imagination. I wonder what it will look like beside a snowflake block.

It’s so easy to forget how sweet and beautiful a simple one patch quilt really is. It can stand alone any time especially with a great fabric choice. Yours are sweet, fresh, and timeless versions of this great pattern. Sometimes I need to be reminded that greatness can be achieved with simplicity. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for today’s lesson. I just finished my morning tea ( already fed horses and all morning chores). I’m about to head to my quilt record to add this reminder at the top of a page!

Another lovely blog post. Your quilts look lovely as a group. I love that spider web block. Jim thing of doing some Christmas ones in red and green like that.
My craftroom has just arrived from Spain now the sorting out starts. Have a lovely week Helen.

Bravo on the 3 fruit inspired quilts, they certainly do make a lovely trio shown together. I think your home must feel like summer all year with the pretty whites and all your lovely pastels. What a cute little mouse to add to your menagerie of hand made pets!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I love your fruit quilts! I am really getting back into sewing and quilting but of course, without giving up all my other hobbies! LOL!
Gift making for Halloween is over and now the Christmas making begins. Your walkway to town is so pretty! Love the pumpkins and birds and the spider web block/coaster is the best! That little mouse is irresistible. Thank you for sharing your talents with us and feeding our inspiration and motivation! Hugs~Sam

The pumpkins, fabric birds and mouse are all so cute. All your makes are lovely and the choice of fabric always perfect.
Happy November, Helen.

Dear helen, your page has been open on my desk top since you posted it last Tuesday. I have been busy.... I had to tell you that your projects and the little mouse are adorable and so sweet. I want to make a family of mousies and perhaps some kitties too. I imagine they could be best of friends

I hope you have a lovely week. Stay warm, the cold beastly wind is coming. We had warm fresh air yesterday 65º F and today it will be 45º and tomorrow it will be 30º
Oh well, that is planet earth for ya (haha)
I enjoy your blog and your beautiful creations.
