Good Day and it is a GOOD DAY- YOU are HERE!
...If you are new to our blog
WELCOME. I love the Fall for my mind races
ahead to all the BLOG HOPs that are stirring in my mind...
As much as this year has been very full, you can't even imagine
what is planned for next year!
ANYONE and EVERYONE can enter our BLOG HOPS,
all you need is a desire to create the project for the theme on hand,
a camera, and if you don't have a blog we can help there too...
WE will host your post and photos....
WE have DELIGHTFUL CARING, Filled with HEART CHEERLEADERS
who are always eager to assist.... They truly are the BEST
and I am nothing without them!
A typical day for me...ok, maybe a weekend!
I suppose you could say my days and NIGHTS are pretty full these days with homework, papers,
exams already coming soon, some canning on weekends, ( tis the season) ...
Here are packages ready to be mailed to our winners...IF ever you see a RED package
you just know it is filled with Goods from SEW We Quilt. I always add extras which more
than cover the cost to ship..Sponsors do not pay for shipping...but ask around, does that matter ( when you see what is inside) ....OUR sponsors are tops....I have sooooo many surprises coming up
for future sponsor giveaways...ohhhhh my!
Here are some of the canning we managed to do this weekend ( was afraid to put them
all out here in case my barn wood collapsed ) ....6 jars of butternut
apple soups, 9 jars of marinara....Our canning pot was boiling none stop... This will
keep us till December or longer....Two weeks from now it is apple pies, I make over 2 dozen
pies, takes 2 bushels of apples that will do us till spring..There is nothing quite
as welcoming as coming home to a baked apple pie right from the oven...
My Nanny always said, keep your man fed, he will always come home!
Mine does with smiles!
NOTE ABOUT FREEZING apple pies...
I make my dough ( always tenderflake lard, I cut up only SPY
apples, only cinnamon and nutmeg and a bit of tapioca, so it absorbs
apple juices....and I freeze the whole pie....
in tip plates and in large bags...I bake frozen, slow oven first
then 375 to brown crust...and that is it)
we don't like sweet pies..ours are very tasty
and the cinnamon and nutmeg just makes them perfect...
EACH apple is diff't...but around here, SPY apples are BEST for PIES!
YOU will be creating DOLLS...
I have 2 I am working on for YOU, if you have never made one,
I will provide all the steps , you will be surprised at how PROFESSIONAL
yours will look like... you too will be able to say...
