It's done! It's done! It's done!!!

Can you tell that I am just a little bit excited to be done, done, done with the pink and brown pineapple quilt? I was able to calm down and get the binding done this afternoon. Nina actually called me this morning and told me to just quit getting stressed out over stuff!

In other news, I made a batch of yummy muffins last night. Actually I made a double batch. 24 yummy breakfast muffins. See, maybe some of Nina's baking talents have rubbed off on me! I promised Nina the recipe - so here you go!

Coffee Cake Muffins

Mix dry ingredients:

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup wheat germ

Ooh. If I were a good Mom and not running out on my family this morning...I'd give your muffins a try, Sarah. They sound great...thanks for sharing the recipe!

LOVELY job on the brown/pink quilt! Your machine quilting looks terrific! Your celebration is justified!

the quilt is great! I love the quilted leaves interspersed with the swoops. Congrats at getting it done -- didn't kow stress was one of those things you could just banish, but seems you listened well to Nines and it worked :-)

It's beautiful, It's beautiful, It's beautiful! Love the diagonal pattern of the browns...I can resist almost anything but a diagonal pattern in quilts:)


Peni said...

Funny...I didn't read Nines' comment and said the same thing. Pity her???

Susan said...

And it's so beautiful, too. I love the pink/brown combination.

Pink and brown...I love it. Thanks for the recipe. I was flipping through magazines looking for muffins!

Shelina said...

Congratulations on another great finish. You're on a roll! That pink and brown go so well together. This is a beautiful quilt, and the quilting on it is great too! It seems like if you made 24 muffins, there would be enough to share - the muffins, not just the recipe. hmmmph. LOL
