(Ok, I know the picture of the pie is not that beautiful, but when I moved the pie from the pan the crust crumbled off...it really is delicious.)
....and yes, I did eat this piece right after I took the picture : )
I decided to bake brownies for my children (sorry no pictures, already gone : ), and a homemade pumpkin pie for me : )
I made my pie from (mostly) scratch and changed the recipe ever so slightly. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar by cutting the sugar from 3/4 cup to 1/2. I used this recipe:
I opened the freezer and no ready made pie crust...so, I went cruising around the internet and found the best pie crust ever! This is the easiest pie crust I have ever made....check it out...

Now back to the quilt....
I asked the new mom what some of her "love names" or phrases were for the new baby and she gave me a few....
I stitched "handsome boy".....
"hungry, hungry hippo"
and a few more words of endearment were stitched on.
Today I am going to attach the front to the back.
The green/white flannel gingham fabric on the left is the backing.
I found this twin sheet while thrifting. A mere $2.00. You could not
buy that much flannel fabric at the Fabric store for $2.00!
I love the idea of recycling and the fabric is already softened.
