Rainy days

Yesterday was such a typical winters day, rainy and cold so I stayed inside and sewed and baked goodies for my boys lunch box. These cookies were so yummy, they are kind of like a yo yo with rainbow choc chips inside. While the cookies were baking I whipped up my first basket block for this quilt pattern, I really don't know if I'll make it like the pattern but I'll do a few more baskets and take it from there.

I am making a nine patch on point quilt so I made a few blocks. I need 99 altogether. I'm using all my scraps so far. What do you do with your scraps? I hope you found some sewing time today.

The cookies look yummy! I like your quilt blocks too - just my style. 9-patches are a good way to use scraps & it is a great block.

yum they look delicious and you basket block is cute, what size are they, I usually add to my stash and rummage through it when I can't find the right fabric
