Stitching and Stewing on Sunday

Tomorrow is Monday.
Our dinner group meets on Monday.
We are hosting tomorrow's meal.

Hubby plans to make pork chops on the grill.
I have been craving Pumpkin Pie...
...ever since we made it for our turkey dinner in Basic Foods class last week.

This is absolutely the easiest dessert to make.
You just whirl all the ingredients in a blender and pour it in a pie pan and put it in the oven.

I have posted the recipe on our

This is one of the pillows that I started last spring.
I stitched the messages
Faith
Hope
Love
Peace
Cherish
Simplify
on the pillow tops while sitting in the hospital with my mom.
Late summer, I added the calico borders;
then the vines, leaves, and fabric rosettes.
...All stained in Vanilla Cinnamon Coffee.

And now, they are stuffed and hand stitched.
Watch for them in my Etsy shop...
...or, of course, if you can make it to Winterfest.

Take care,
~Natalie
