Friday Chat

I have a little bit of this and a little bit of that to catch you up with.  
We are all settling back into a normal routine now that Finn is home. 
 He and Cole and he and Chris are setting in to their old routines.

On top of this, I trimmed up the Shooting Stars quilt, with some help of course.

I don't think I have shared this quilt yet either.  
I need to get the binding on it but it has been quilted and will be gifted at Christmas time.  
The intended person has no idea I have been making a quilt for them but I don't think 
I will share the quilt until it is gifted.  

I volunteered to do some pattern testing (I know, I know, I shouldn't be taking on one more thing!).  
I did it anyway, so there's that.

One "in progress" shot and one of it all finished. 
 I'm trying to decide if I should try to make the whole quilt or just make this into a pillow. 
 I am leaning toward the pillow. 

I have also been making major dietary changes in my life.  
I have switched over to a Keto way of eating (WOE).  
It has taken a lot of work to change over what is in my pantry. 
 I have had to find recipes to substitute into my menu that will fit this new WOE. 
 It has taken a bit of my time as more meal prep is required. 
I am actually enjoying it now and I feel a lot better with lower carbohydrates on board.  
I have also lost some more weight. 
 I would say I have about 15 pounds left to lose.  
Since the wedding is over there is no particular hurry now though.  

I found a great coconut flour zucchini fritter recipe and adapted to make it in my mini waffle maker.  It was so good!

I made some Maple French Toast bagels too and they were SO good!  
I mistaked and made 6 when I should have made 12 but they are delicious anyway.

Are keto recipes anything you would be interested in reading about? 
I will probably be posting some of my newfound recipes.

So this is what seems to be taking up most of my time lately. 
 I have a few "have to" things to make between now and Christmas.  
Next up will be my swap gift for the Sew Beachy retreat in the beginning of December and binding the quilt I showed a sneak peek of above.  
Then 3 Christmas stockings.  

Life is good and I am happy to have my Finn home.  
Cole is my cat though and is never far from me.  
The other day he brought me his ball (into the sewing room) 
for me to throw so he could fetch it back to me.  

Have a great weekend and wish me luck with my upcoming projects!

So glad Finn is back at home and fitting in again. Whew! I love reading about your busy life. Not too fond of Keto, tho. I think we all eat too fast and just have to eat less. Good luck to you, tho.
