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.

Here's a close up of the centre leaf.  

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.


  1. Holy crap...where do you find the time!!!
    Nothing was "whipped up" in my studio for the last week, little own the weekend. lol

  2. Way to go. You truly are the Everyready Baker and Quilter Bunny! I've been procrasinating on the water piece too, and just found a new task to undertake that I need to make and post about today so 'Water' will have to be put on hold yet again. LOL

  3. Enthusiasm, energy and creativity follow you everywhere. So proud of you. I am blessed to have you as my sister.
