As the weather gets cooler colder and colder outside, and with Thanksgiving Holiday just a few days away, I seem to be turned to my kitchen.  I really love cooking, it ranks up there with laying on the beaches of Kauai in the warm sunshine, and sewing my heart away on a new quilt.

Sunday I had a wonderful time fixing a small version of Thanksgiving, all it was missing was the jello salads, turkey and stuffing. (Plus the 50 appetizers my family thinks is necessary).

I even had my 10 year old daughter make this delicious Apple Pie, my older daughter made German Chocolate Brownies and both were so YUMMY!

I had the middle daughter make the pie, to try out this pie crust recipe.  It was her first ever trial and well its a keeper and I will use it for the 5 pies I get to make next Wednesday for Thanksgiving dinner.

 Today while daughter #4 was at preschool, I could actually work on the Christmas Quilt I am making for that 10 year old daughter.  I had most of the blocks made, just needed to finish squaring up a few of them (well about 30). 

This quilt will be 8 blocks wide by 10 blocks long 


I actually got all the rows pieced together and now just need to sew them together during preschool tomorrow!

Very pretty - cute fabric line and nice fattern to feature it. Good luck with your secret sewing to get it all done.
