Many of you have already started your coin purses for
our Blog HOP in November for UR PRICELESS,
hosted by our cheerleader in residence Katherine from Sew me something good!
She is sew excited btw....
WE are full- to capacity over 105+ WOW!
When I first announced this blog hop I showed you this
coin purse with Kelly's frames....( IHAN) ( below)
(she has many in stock) .
A great one to start with
and when YOU want a diff't fancier purse handle
Corrie will be carrying the Heart handle above.
( these will be arriving in October)
Corrie also has the fusible fleece you will be needing for these...
SEW I thought I would make you one up this weekend to show
you that one... ( this frame btw fits perfectly for the same pattern
that you all were sent -those in the blog hop)
OHHH I have heard from many of you, that YOU found
the pattern easy to follow..that is good news...
SEW....this new one above with the heart handles...
This was made from Andover Fabrics
who happens to be our sponsor for this event...
This is from this new collection..
We just love Andover Fabrics, wait till you see some
of their newest collections.
( take a peak at the whole collection)
it will have you hopping!
I wanted to show you what you could do with
through the next couple of weeks...
I will show you a few more sneak peaks...
( I plan on making a few...did you hear
that Carol ? lol)
On the HOMEFRONT.
I seem to be leaning towards a theme
in my home surroundings too...
This is what I did this weekend....
( I washed the door before painting
that is why you see streaks..this paint
was flat finish..a special paint
that some local Amish made for us)
Our home on the outside is all taupe , in a variety of hues...
Sew a black door really popped from our curb....
But then I was thinking why not RED for the Winter MONTHS...
This is the same RED that I used for our outdoor benches
in our backyard...FIRE ENGINE RED....
I think I like the RED, yuuuuup a theme is evolving over here...
Lot of love in our home...I think this suits us both to a T.
And speaking of RED..apples are red....especially PAULA REDS
and this is what I made with 1/2 bushel of apples..
Made 12 Saturday, now our freezer is filled with 24 apple pies
and 18 apple Brown Bettys..
Such a treat for my DH when he comes home on those cold winter
nights and opens the door to PIE PIE PIE...
This recipe is very easy...fill up a pie tin plate..( only because they are less
expensive than glass) slice about 8 medium sized sliced apples..leave
peelings on..that is where the fibre is...
Fill the plate , don't add anything else...except the following..
IN a separate large bowl add 4 cups of quick oats,
1 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
1 pound of unsalted butter...
Mix in a blender or by hand...
Cover over each pie dish...Wrap with plastic
put in freezer till ready to use..
Preheat over 375 for 20 min, 350 for 30...
That is it!
TOTAL cost of 1/2 bushel apples, oats, butter and brown sugar.
$25.00 ( canadian) for 12 pies...average cost. $2.08 per apple brown betty...
( by the way from start to finish cut apples, make crumb, cover and freeze)
1 hour and 2.3 minutes..)
( and you wonder why I love to bake and cook and can sew much)
My Shadow Sumantra, was not too eager when I asked her if she wanted something red
to match our theme....LOOK at those eyes!
Today, I have some homework to do for school
and during my 23 minute breaks. ( how do I get everything done...take a peak
at that timer on the side bar)
..I just may get
some blocks done for our blog hop that begins
LEAFS ME HAPPY with Cherry...( that is RED) lol
Her name and button ...yes....
