I bought a peck of apples the other day so that I could make some apple pies for Thanksgiving Dinner with my family. I spent last evening peeling and slicing getting ready for baking today. I rolled the pastry and lined two pie plates, then filled them with the apples and covered them with the remaining rolled pastry. Into the oven they went. I ran into a dilema though. Do you know how many apples is in a peck? Lots. I had so many apples left over that I made some apple danishes, apple crisp and even an apple cake. I still have apples left over - maybe apple sauce? All my baked goods lined the dining room table. They needed something to go with them - a fall table runner. I whipped up this Patrick Lose pattern, using batiks, raw-edge machine applique and free-motion quilting.

I also just finished up two tiny Halloween wall-hangings:
I'm supposed to be completing my Group of Eight water challenge. Why do I keep procrastinating? I've lots of work to do and so little time left. Hopefully I can post a finished piece by the end of our long weekend.
