I started getting ready today for the Big Day – for the uninitiated, that is Thanksgiving, not Black Friday (I like eating better than shopping) - by baking the traditional pumpkin pie:
And then the trouble started:
As I was putting the pie in the oven, the flimsy aluminum pie pan buckled and out plopped at least a quarter of the filling onto the oven door. I was able to clean most of that up without toasting my fingers, but there wasn’t anything I could do about the parts of the crust that got covered in filling and then naturally got burnt to a crisp. So I just cut the crimped part of the crust off. And made another pie. I’ll have to sacrifice myself and eat the ugly pie all by myself. Not a bad plan …
But then I got an email that a LQS was having a volunteer event to make quilts for 19 local children in a marathon event one evening next week. What fun! Of course, I signed up. I’ll be taking two kits that I had made up while my machine was out for repair. This is one:
Aren’t those monsters cute?! I've had them a long time and it's time for them to go to some little boy somewhere. I hope to remember to take my camera to the event!
As Fall turns to Winter, may you and yours enjoy the blessings of Thanksgiving
