It is a small kind of accomplishment, I suppose.  Lizzie Bennet, Pride & Prejudice

I’ve had this blog post in my head for a while, to keep you abreast of what I have accomplished of late. And since I’ve thought about this blog post, that quote from P&P has been in my head all the day long. Small kind of accomplishment, I suppose. 

Okay. Small kinds of accomplishments, aka projects and happenings, here we go. 

I finished mod-podging this paper mâché pumpkin with fabric scraps. It is September now; pumpkins are allowed, right?  (The white one is from my garden.)

 My stack of English paper pieced six-point stars keeps growing.   

 Dave and I finally found this geocache in Austin. It literally took us four bike rides to the coordinates to find it. Fourth time is a charm.  

 I gained a new piece of furniture – a gun cabinet my dad made while he was a youngster. Dave, my super handy boyfriend, helped me add shelves. Now, it’s no longer for guns but for fabric storage in the sewing room, holding fabric stored in shop bins from my dad’s shop. 

I baked this loaf of bread in my pretty blue Dutch oven. (Colder weather means the Dutch oven comes out.) It was as it looks – crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I recommend the recipe. Mmm.  
 Also – I made my first pot roast and quilted a quilt. Tomorrow, my accomplishment will be leading cowboy worship at church. (Hey!  Tomorrow marks four years here. Crazy!) 

Life is busy.  Life is good.
