Good Morning Quilters!
Thanksgiving week is now behind us, and November is almost over. On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, we were at our son’s home, and for the first time in many years, I didn’t cook, bake, or prepare anything. It was very different, but as one friend told me: You earned it, for all your years of turkey preparation in the past. It was a wonderful day with family. We met our new 3 week old Great Grandchild, Bennett, and got to hold him. He is just perfect, and so tiny.
Yesterday, back at home, I decided to make an apple pie. I ate a piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgivng, and am now thankful to have a pie here to enjoy all week! Apple pie is my hubby’s favorite, so I earned points with him too.
The big bag I started last week is now finished, and here is a picture of it, now holding two crocheting UFOs. Yes, I have those too.
I like how sturdy the dog food bag lining makes it. I plan to make more bags. I plan to sew it together a little differently next time. But it is nice to recycle the plastic bags. I did take out my sewing machine needle and saved it to use exclusively for future “bag” projects.
Here are two pictures of the apple pie. We each had generous pieces as a treat last night. Delicious!

That's so nice you didn't have to cook Thursday! I never sew along with Bonnie's mystery quilts. I always wait until the finish so I can see what the pattern looks like first. Hope your December isn't too busy so you have plenty of sewing time, happy stitching!ReplyDelete
I think it is kind of nice not to have to do the cooking for a change. I am saving Bonnie's pattern as she updates I dont' know if I will make it this year or no I have only ever make one of her mystery's - they take a lot of spare time for sure if you are working on other things at the same time.ReplyDelete
My mouth is watering here this morning looking at that wonderful and substantive pie so thanks for that very delicious thought! Also love the bag. We are birds of a feather Judy to have UFO's of all sorts, :DReplyDelete
That sounds so fun - and a new baby!!!! your Apple pie looks amazing!!!ReplyDelete
I like bonnie hunter's quilts but not all the cutting at once, all the sewing of some block at once....I'm hoping to actually finish the Christmas quilt I started last year...it needs quilting....that pie looks awesome... lots of apple juice and crustReplyDelete
That pie looks so delicious! And I love your new bag. Using the plastic dog food bag is awesome!ReplyDelete
How wonderful to not have to cook and to hold a brand new baby... sounds wonderful! Great job on the bag and on recycling!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your new great grandbaby; I am sure you will spoil him rotten. Your bag is fantastic and way to go on recycling the feed bag. The apple pie looks so yummy. We had pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving too. It is always a family favorite. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving being the guest and not the hostess. Congrats on the new addition to the family. Enjoy your stitching time this month. I couldn't pass up Bonnie's mystery, but I'm only committing to making half the number of blocks. Maybe I'll actually finish it before next year's comes out.ReplyDelete
Hi Judy, I'm glad that you had a great Thanksgiving. It's nice to not have to make everything but it does take getting used to! I love you bag. Using those sturdy giant dogfood bags as lining is a great idea. Enjoy your week (and the rest of the pie!)ReplyDelete
