Applesauce

I had a cooking day with my friends and our plan was applesauce.  Eileen and Janet trekked out to the orchards and picked up a bushel of apples.  Eileen and the other Eileen peeled and peeled, Janet chopped, and I supervised.  I'm good at that.

We added the apples and spices to a pot to simmer.

The recipe is from Food in Jars but we only used half the amount of spices.   We also made a batch with no spices that was baked in the oven.

Lois was busy making a really tasty apple pie.  Sorry, no pictures.  We gobbled it up too fast.  Here's the finished applesauce.

We each took home about 8 cups of applesauce to eat or freeze.  Another tasty and productive cooking adventure with my friends.

ANG Seminar

I've been away at the American Needlepoint Guild Seminar in New Orleans.  I took two classes and the first one was Casbah Revisited by Terry Dryden.  Here's the progress after the first day.  

 

and progress after the second day

 

I loved this class and Terry was a great instructor.  I would love to take another class with her again.  This is going to be a great piece when I finish it.

Parsley

Something is eating my parsley and I couldn't be happier.

 

I think these caterpillars are going to be black swallowtail butterflies.

Color Block Baby Blanket

I've got a small start on the baby blanket.

This is the Color Block Bias Blanket by Purl Soho.  It's quick and easy.  I think I want one for myself.

Pennington Sampler Quilt

The Pennington Sampler quilt is finally looking like it might get finished one day.  It has the top, two sides, and the bottom row attached.

It's ready for the borders and the borders are ready for it.
