My creative life

The first creative thing I did today was to take my husband shopping for a shirt and tie. It is one week before my son's wedding so it was about time. Do you love the colors? I particularly like the design on the tie. It reminds me of the designs I'm working on for a silk screen.

Then this afternoon, I made these banana bread cookies to take with me. They are having a 7 pm wedding and dance. We are doing pictures at 3pm and will have a light supper in their suite.
You can find the recipe here:

I will make the maple frosting tomorrow and freeze them.

I'm just finishing up hand sewing the binding on their quilt and I also want to make a label for it. I feel quite safe to show it because my son's fiancé is off work this week and they don't have Internet at home. I will show you a full picture in just over a week once they've seen it.
So that was my day. I visited my studio to look at the two pieces I'm working on. I took a few minutes to get them ironed and sandwiched. I'm already for when I do get some time.
