It's Tuesday?

I should be watching the debate. Ok I was...and I just had to take a break so here I am. On sunday Dh used some of the apples from the orchard to make apple fritters. They were amazing. I know it's not the most gourmet picture but I wanted to show them off. Now I have done some more sewing. I had planned on making 4 gateau pincushions using Fig Tree Quilts' pattern. I don't make half square triangles very well so I counted out some thangles and started sewing. Somehow I ended up counting wrong and now have 8 pieced blocks for pincushions!!! Yes ....8..and what am going to do with 8????
Anyhow, so far one done...and several in various stages of production.....
I have already given this pincushion away to one of my staff who said she only had 1 pincushion. I knew she'd appreciate it. I still need 4 pincushions for gifts....and that will leave 3 if I can get them done. Perhaps a giveaway is in the future...when I finish them!

I just finished watching the debate, and I am glad that you were able to update your blog! I needed the break too. Anyway, Apple Fritters looks delicious. I can almost taste them through the computer. Wouldn't that be great if we could smell them through the screen. I love your pincushion! Very beautiful!!

Love the fabrics you've used! Pink and brown always makes me think of candies and neopolitan ice cream. Drool....

The fritters look delish and the pincushion.... LOVE IT! It's very trendy in the pink and brown. I'm loving that color combo for this season. Punkie Girl wears lots of pink and brown these days.
