Baby, It's Cold Outside!!

Don't let that little spot of sunshine fool you; it's very cold outside today; and the wind is not really even blowing.  Time to get out the gloves & scarves whether we want to or not.

I finally got my Thimbleberries Pumpkin Quilt up in the family room; this is one of my favorite quilts for the fall season. I can remember when I first saw this quilt; we were at the Thimbleberries studio in Hutchinson, MN & I had to make it.  I hear so many quilters talking about how certain quilts affect them like that; this was one for me & it's been years ago. . . would not want to figure out how many years it has been! Oh, but they've been good years with lots of quilting a part of them.

I have to share a new recipe I found at the Better Homes & Gardens site.  It's Pumpkin Fudge & it is awesome & easy to make.  Go to bhg.com & search for "pumpkin fudge."  Believe me, you'll want to give some of it away or take it to a bake sale or bazaar, because you cannot keep it in the refrigerator, it is just too tempting to have it so close for snacking.

Also, check out the Upside Down Caramelized Apple Pie; it is made in a cast iron skillet first on the stove top, then baked in the same skillet.  And, it, too, is delicious!  Well, you can tell what's on my mind today - eat, eat, eat!!

Turkey Time!

Wow, here it is November & we're talking turkey already!  Where do the weeks fly off to . . .

Golden Pond Farm
This time of the year I always get out my
Golden Pond Farm quilt!
It just dresses up the house for the
fall season!

I remember mixing the batiks
with the country fabrics
for many different sizes of leaves
and loving the results!

What do you think?

Union Sampler
We finished the new Union Sampler just in time for Candy from Homespun Quilt Shop
in Estherville to take it to Festival in Houston. 
It really turned out quite impressive - red & black always demands attention, I believe. 

Union Sampler makes a great Block of the Month program since it features 12 different 5" blocks; finishes to 33" x 40" ~ a great size
 to fit  a small wall! 
 I love to add the scalloped border for a super cute finish!


Just a reminder to save those flower seeds falling outside & share them with your friends.  They'll thank you next year & there'll always be
a reminder of you in their flower garden!

Anyone wanting seeds from my beautiful white moonflowers,
just let me know!
