A busy day! Made a pie and granola, cut hexies and finished a ring around the flower hexie that I started yesterday, quilted a little bit on Final Frontier. Melanie came over last night and there is a new/old (started awhile ago) needle work to show.
First this is the area I was working on the circles for a little bit late yesterday afternoon. I am almost done with this first length all the way across and would have been done and rolled it down if it hadn’t been for my routine changing a little while the Olympics are on.
Melanie’s needle work. Yes she does this craft fast and is constantly working on another one. Someone had asked last week what thread does she use – just regular embroidery thread – she is on a strict budget. Gets her linen at Hobby Lobby with the coupon or at discount stores here and there and her patterns are all from library books or found on the internet and she makes a chart on paper and goes from there.
The reddish hexie in the lower right is pinned in place I will now go back to working neutrals in between basting more neutrals. I must have cut out another 100 easily yesterday with the accuquit.
Skillet Apple Pie with a crumb topping. Place one crust in the skillet (I sprayed with non-stick spray first) make your apple pie filling as you normally would but don’t have it heaping on the top – I used 5 apples. Make a crumb top that you like – mine includes chopped walnuts. If you need the recipe let me know but really you can use any for it. Place over the top and bake for 45 minutes at 375 or until done. Top with ice cream if you wish when you serve.
Homemade granola is my breakfast choice in the morning – they always say oatmeal is very good for you but I hate oatmeal cooked – I hate any hot breakfast cereal – always have disliked it – maybe because that is what breakfast was most days as a child and I hated it then and had to eat it or go hungry — my granola is oats, nuts, ground flax seed, almond meal, raisins, a tad of sugar , honey and oil. This recipe makes about 8 cups. I go through spells of eating this for months, then I don’t make it for a couple months then back to it again.
