Late yesterday afternoon I made Turtle Pumpkin Pie.
Oh yes, it is good.
Today, I got up about the time I would normally be arriving at work. Drank some coffee, actually took a shower and dressed. Then I loaded a customer quilt and got started. The customer does not like this top. I hope she likes the quilt when I get finished with it. I was going to use a template to do all the CC (continuous curve). But after the first block, my attitude regarding using a template for all that CC was “screw that!”, and went back to freehanding it all. Sure it’s not perfect…but I think it looks pretty good. Goes lots faster, too!
I think the back is going to look really cool.
After working on this for 4 hours, I decided it was time to go back to holiday baking. I am trying to make Red Velvet Whoopie pies for my son. I have no idea if these will be good or not. Never made them before, but he loves Red Velvet cake. I’ll let ya know how they turn out in a later post.
Which brings me to a newsflash I have not yet shared with you! Santa came early at my house. He brought me this mixer!
And speaking of my son, this is the picture from the Christmas cards his dad & stepmom did this year. Derek and his little sister…aren’t they cute?
Well, if you are still reading at this point, I hope you are having a great week!
