A Finish and Yummy Apple Crisp

Been busy sewing for my Etsy shop.
 Here is a cute table runner made with 12 days of christmas charm pack.
Whipped together really fast.

Looks great with the pillow cover I made.

Apples, Apple, Apples,  So many picked this year from our Spy Tree.
So lets whip up another Cranberry Apple Crisp.
First peel the apples.  I used 8 apples. Love my new Starfrit apple peeler. Cuts the time in half.
Then I used the cute apple slicer that came with it.
Apples lined up in a row on my new chopping board with srainer.
All the topping in a bowl.
1/4 c of brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
1/3 c of rolled oats
1/4 c of cinnimon (I like lots)
6 tblsp of cold butter
Toss the chopped apples in a bowl with sugar and 1 tsp of lemon juice
Rinse 1 cup of fresh cranberries and add to chopped apples.
Spray your dish with cooking oil
Add the ingredients than top off with your mixed topping.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
Yummy serve warm with your favourite Ice Cream.
Now off to our Euchre Party.

Keeping the Peddle to the Metal con't

I'm keeping my little featherweight busy these days.

Here is a pillow I just completed using Kate Spain's 12 days of Christmas charm pack.  It measures 20" x 20".

Another finish to add to my Etsy shop.

As well my hands. I had some felted wool (some) is just a understatement,  I have a shelf  full of felted wool ready to be cut for my rug hooking.

So I took out a few pieces and made this primitive penny rug.
It measures 8" x 15"  Made it festive with some Christmas socks and decorations. Another finish for my Etsy shop.
Now I think I am due a mini holiday.

Love this magazine, Primitive Quilts and Projects fall issue
I have a finish. This cute little tabbletopper caught my eye.
I have only made a few primitive quilts, but this one went together so fast. The log cabin blocks and the wool applique is what sold me.   I made this one for my grandaughter's birthday.

My daughter's birthday is also this month and I put together this cute little girlie apron. She just loved it.
Hope every one is enjoying this warm spell.

Fall on the Front Porch

 Fall is finally here and my front porch is decorated, bring on the fall colours.
No monotone colours for me.
Love oranges, blacks, yellows .
A lantern with a crow and pumpkin. My cute little rat on the pumpkin and the corn stalks leftover from my harvest.
I had orange marigolds that I could not throw away so they went in the watering can.
Lots of  butternut squash adds a little more flare. My yellow mums are sure putting on a show.
A large wreath on the door completes the look.
 Happy Autumn everyone!
A little table topper finished. This pattern is Cheri Payne Designs.
If you want to take a stroll through my decorated home go here.
