Paper, Pie & a Sheep

Last month I was interviewed as part of an article on Etsy for the local newspaper. Twice a week since then, I have been eagerly searching the paper looking for that tiny article with maybe a photo of me in it. I was starting to think that it may never be published until yesterday when I saw a little photo of me at the top right of the front cover announcing the feature story...

Little did I realize it would be a full page article with my photo taking half of it! I was blown away! Please read the full article HERE.

I also made some absolutely scrumptious pie! It was so fabulous that my friend licked her plate at our tea party! HAHA! I used what I had in the house: 2 nectarines, 2 fresh spartan apples, 2 clumps of concord grapes, 2 cups of frozen blackberries, the juice and rind of half a lemon, 2/3 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup flour to thicken. I use this fabulous hot water pastry recipe for my pie crusts. It's so easy and always turns out great. I think I miss pottery because I went crazy with the crust! I will definitely make this pie again!

Here is a sheep pillow I made for a friend's daughter about a year ago that I forgot to blog!! It's never too late :o)

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)
