 Judy was also a winner  and she picked Simply Triangles Book for her prize.

  It was fun to hear what  everyone's favorite pattern was over at Delightful Piecing.  Desert Rose got the most votes.

And Spinning Pinwheels was another favorite.

Good Ole Apple Butter

Apple Butter day is more than making apple butter, it is a social time of getting together with family.  This event reconnects the cousins as they sip hot cider, play games and visit.
Dad keeps the fire a burning.

Uncle Joe filling the jars of apple butter. 

 23 Gallons of apple butter ready to eat with townhouse crackers and peanut butter.  Yummy.  Dads shed makes a wonderful place for this large gathering.  If it rains or snows we are still in the dry.

Quilt Life
Just finished quilting all the double lines around the stars.
