The DGDs were over the other day. As usual they wandered into the kitchen looking for "treats" and eats. The oldest decided she wanted to cook so she asked for a card and she wrote out a recipe. Below is a 6 year old's recipe for apple pie. I'm sure you'll want to try it soon.

After residing at the end of our bed for a few months, the Strip Therapy Quilt is finally hanging above the bed. The tall sloped wall was in desperate need of a pop of color. But it is a tall wall and the actual hanging of the quilt was not easy. Thanks to DHs creativity and willingness to reach up to tall places, the quilt was hung. Our basic philosophy is that we will not hang anything over the bed that will fall and knock us out during an earthquake. I think this qualifies.

|No other way to reach up except to stand on the bed. Notice the precise "blue tape" marks.|
|Hangers went right up to the limits of DHs arms|
|Voila! Isn't it beautiful. Now we need new lamps.|
DS is on the mend and he and his wife went out on a special date to a concert last week. Of course, Nahn Nahn got to have a sleep-over to help out. I love this family. I am so blessed.

And finally, a little retro Halloween happiness. I think I made this fabric pumpkin and its leaf coasters over 20 years ago. It comes out every fall. I've noticed in the quilting blogs that fabric pumpkins are once again popular. What goes 'round, comes 'round. This one is holding up well.
