It's Pie Day! 🥧

Each year I delight in baking pies on the day before Thanksgiving. 
However, this year, my left wrist is having an issue with tendonitis, so we're buying two pies 
from the wonderful Red Hen Bakery nearby.  We ordered Pumpkin and Apple, and I'll make a Cherry Crisp.  I think we'll be okay...though I sure will miss making that flaky crust. 
Mind you, we tested local pies to find just the right mix of flaky crust and tasty fillings!
What's your favourite?

Doubly Wonderful!

Susan amazed me again!  Since I gave the Butterfly quilt
that Susan made for me to VT*Grand (who was home
sick when it arrived),
Susan made me a duplicate,
so that my granddaughter and I can each have one!! 
🦋 Susan is a MARVEL! 💛
(Mizzen agrees, proving it the cushiest spot in the house!)

I am blown away!
Our own dear Susan made these quilts for Wil and me
as thanks that I'm keeping the blog front page going.
I am so moved and deeply amazed
at Susan's beautiful artistry and skill.

Absolutely Gorgeous!
This shows both sides of each quilt...

Veteran's Day

 May any war we have to undertake
be for the right reasons,
that our soldiers not sacrifice in vain.
