I love pie!

I am making oatmeal and pecan pies, one a piece. The recipe is very high in sugars and calories, so I only make it about once or twice a year. It's worth every bite!


You need a pie shell and to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine 2 eggs, 2/3 cup of sugar, 2/3 cup of Karo syrup, teaspoon of vanilla, 2/3 cup of melted butter, and a cup of oatmeal or pecans, whichever you prefer. Mix it altogether and fill the pie shell. The recipe is for only one pie.

My grandma gave me this recipe years ago, and I found heaven in a single slice, though I've been known to eat an entire pie in 2-3 days. Oh, and also hide them for myself. :)

Mmmmm.......almost done. Cooks for 45 minutes or until firm.

A day in the woods.....

We spent the day in the woods and mostly thickets, but I ended up taking all the pictures of just the swamp. Go figure.

The swamp.
Beaver Dam.

Poor, opossum.


Where are you Mr. Beaver?

I loved this pine archway!

Hammerhead, maybe?

Hawk feather.

fresh fabrics!!

These babies are called 'Enchanted Garden' by Samantha Walker. So pretty!







I have decided that I will no longer be able to post pictures of treasuries on this blog. It takes so much effort and I just do not have the time.






Thanks so much to those who feature my items in their treasuries!!

Seen this?

Lots of Christmas craft goodies packed in here. Here is the link to see for yourself. I have several that I want to try. I LOVE CHRISTMAS DECORATING! especially when I can make my own stuff. Go see. go see.

I'm thinking of trying this wreath. It's basically a styrofoam circle wrapped up in scrap fabrics and stuff. The twig, of course, is why I love it. Bring in the woods.

I like this one, and was actually already thinking of doing something a wee bit similar this year. It's a scrappy patchwork tree on a canvas frame. I like the tree on canvas, but I think I will just do triangle trees. Also, I thought I might want to put some in those embroidery circles.


This one is my favorite. However, I do HATE making yo-yos. Its just a bunch of different size yo-yos on a dowel. Not digging the thread on the bottom, but.......not sure what to replace it with. Hmmm....there's a puzzle.
Hopefully, I will have time for these goodies for my home this year. If so, I will share.

A few treasuries...

This treasury is called 'Things that make me Happy'. It features my twin size traditional quilt, bottom row, last column.

Thank you goes to I bite like a monster. Love that name!


Called 'A day in the summer garden' it features my wild thyme picnic quilt, bottom row, third column.





Thank you to Lewis Cooper for the feature.






What fun! This one is called 'Gift Guide.....' It features one of my snuggle quilts, middle row, last column. That picture is hands down my favorite picture I have ever taken of one of my items. They are always a work in progress, but I think I'm getting better.













Thanks to Vegan Craftastic for featuring me.

My stockpile is up to my eyeballs so I think I shall have one more sale before the Christmas frenzy begins.

I've marked all my baby quilts down 10%. Eeek! These being my best sellers, I never put them on sale, but alas, I have. :)
