... banana muffins and binding

banana coconut muffins

with some awfully brown bananas in the fruit basket (and some serious sewing needing to be accomplished today) it seemed appropriate to bake a batch of banana muffins for sustenance.

egg & coconut

of course, i love all things coconut, so when i saw this recipe for banana muffins with coconut on epicurious i knew we were destined to be together.

i subbed in some whole wheat flour for half of the all-purpose flour in order to pretend that these were remotely nutritious at no detriment to the taste. and they were definitely quite tasty, especially with the coconut on top creating a crispy crunchy layer.

binding

next, time to tackle the binding for my nephew's quilt (which needs no introduction here, i'm sure).

binding

i really do enjoy making and sewing the binding. i find the final hand stitching of the binding to be oddly satisfying and calming. especially when you can while away the hours watching two episodes of the new masterpiece classic emma.

next installment... a finished quilt! [gasp!]
