Apple Crisp Autumn

The apples came from a friend.

The rainy autumn day called for some baking.

The ingredients were in the pantry.

The recipients were across town.

The recipe is here:

Apple Crisp

4 cups apples, sliced

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup oats (regular or quick)

1/3 cup butter, softened

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Spread apples in a greased 8 inch square pan

Mix together all other ingredients and sprinkle on apples

Bake about 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender

(I tripled the recipe....and baked it almost an hour)

Baby Gifts

My sister made this little doll about 27 years ago for my oldest girl.
She did a great job....but declared she would NEVER make another one.
I dug her out of the keepsake box.
After a couple good baths and some repairs, she is ready for another little girl to love!

My newest little Grand-niece joined our family a couple weeks ago!
I got to meet little Harper this weekend....what a sweet little thing!!!

I made her a Raggedy Ann blanket to go with her dolly.
I hope to get to snuggle her up in it again soon!!

I also made a quilt for my "Baby" sister.
I meant to get a photo of it after she opened it....
but I totally forgot.

This was a block of the month quilt that I did not work on each month.
I waited until 2 days before it needed to go to the quilter.

The fabric for the squares came cut and ready to sew together.
Which is great....
except when something is missing...
and one piece was.

But one month's packet came with an extra piece....
which just happened to be the exact same size as the missing piece!!!
It might not be perfect, but neither am I....
so I counted my blessings and used it!!!

I am so thankful for all the "Babies" in my life!!!

Look close.
Behind that bend in the road sign.
Can you see that little house???

That is just in my head!!

Give it another year....
then you will be able to see it too!
