Sock Monkeys, Bias Binding, Power Outage

My friend Laura pieced this Sock Monkey and passed it on to me to quilt for the PCC Sew a long.

 All the sock monkey fabric was donated by Fat Quarter Shop and the others from our stashes.
I quilted it with straight lines vertically, horizontally and diagonally.

 It turned out pretty cute!

These are two are nice big double sided receiving blankets with bias binding.  So soft!  These fabrics all came from another friends stash.  Do you like the multicoloured bias tape?  Using up what we had :)

The other day it was so, so windy here.  I don't ever remember having such high winds without it being stormy.  I snapped this picture of our youngest two playing while the power was out.
I've finally learned a few basics about our camera.  I never used to be able to take a picture in the dark without flash but now I can!
