Just a small family supper.
I have a workshop on Saturday I thought I was going to have to cancel out on, but my sister in law will be here to relieve me of my duties for a few hours so I will be learning to assemble a full sized quilt in a "Quilt as you go" fashion. Hopefully that will help the UFO basket to get emptied out...well a girl can always hope! We were to have several blocks made and sandwiched ready to quilt, so I chose to use a collection of blocks I won several years ago in an on-line challenge. We all had to use the same fat quarter of fabric as our inspiration. Funny how people pick up on one color over another to accent with. I am hoping that a brown sashing will help unify them. No matter; it will make an excellent car quilt. Here is pic of how I am choosing to lay out the blocks.
Can you figure out the common fabric we all received?
In the mean time I have managed to get another batch of apple butter made...yum yum!
I discovered a new recipe quite by accident... I started out to make a batch of molasses cookies from a favorite cookbook I ordered free on-line about 10 years ago.
Half way through the assembling of ingredients I realized I was following the ingredient list of the recipe below the one I actually wanted to make and therefore ended up making a batch of molasses date bars!
I also made the cookies though so all was not lost. I am a messy cook, but I did discover a new recipe that I will definitely be making again.
I leave you with a notice of a give away from a fellow New Brunswick quilter and blogger. Drop by here to see what she is generously offering. You won't be sorry...
