Cookie time : my favorite recipe

It is time of the year for the house to smell like chocolate cookies, hot cocoa and burning fire place!
I have been making these cookies every year for looong time and sharing my secret recipe now on the blog so you can bake them, too. They will make you happy.

Still in an Autumn Mood

Some pictures I took this week using little colorful things laying around the house. 
The pumpkin that survived the Thanksgiving was baked today, made a nice snack topped with the pumpkin butter.

Несколько натюрмортов, составленных из пережившего осенние праздники 
тыквы и тканей, очень осенние краски.

New Quilt : pastel hexagons

I took this quilt for a walk in the desert to see some bright sun 
that we are so lucky to have this time of the year and to take pictures before I give it to a happy owner 
and it stays inside forever and ever.

This quilt is made of Moda "Nature's Notebook" fabric collection 
by April Cornell that I have bought ages ago. 
Lovely French Country yellow-blue pastel colors.

Я закончила новый квилт и вывела его на прогулку на солнце проветриться и сделать фотографии. У нас стоит отличная зимняя погода. Точнее, у нас еще осень, и листья только начали падать.

Hexagon quilts

The new quilt is made from the same size hexagons that I used for my blue/red quilt, but the finished look is completely different. The colors blend together and look almost seamless. 

Новый желто-голубой квилт сделан из такого же размера 6-угольников, что я использовала для красно-синего квилта, но выглядит совсем по-другому, засчет того, что ткани сливаются друг с другом. Такой пастельный французский кантри стиль получился, хорошо впишется в комнату с винтажной "облупленной" мебелью. 

Quilting : the colors and the label

...taking a break between quilting and running errands...
...adoring the easy colors of the fabrics...


...finishing up to embroider the label for the new quilt...
