PIECES OF COLOR...

Long Beach Quilt Show ~ July 2008
CAROLA selected N-O-V-E-M-B-E-R as this week's word... 

N-O-V-E-M-B-E-R means...

::  blustery days, swirling orange-red leaves
::  the smell of cloves, allspice & cinnamon
::  wearing a coat in the AM & PM
::  needing socks to keep my feet warm & toasty
::  celebrating my anniversary w/JPE
::  apples, apples & more apples (apple-pie, cake, sauce, bread, muffins)
::  cleaning out the garden beds
::  crock pot soups & crusty bread 

What's on my N-O-V-E-M-B-E-R TO-DO LIST? 

::  gathering recipes & making a shopping list of ingredients
::  washing blankets & pillow shams (company is coming!) 
::  cleaning the windows & screens
::  making apple bread & a pie (& freezing them for later!)
::  hosting BBabes "Decoration Swap" 11/16/10


I've shared some ideas I'm mulling about - how about posting your "creative interpretation"???

  1. I actually love your recipes, so I definitely would appreciate your posting one (or more...). I love your list for November - I'm always so torn about this month. It's beautiful here, but I haven't forgotten the grey version of Germany...

  5. the quilter had laid thin, strips of colored fabric & zigzagged down the center of each strip. Due to layering the colored strips, the quilt had some depth to it in places; in other words, it was not flat.
    The tree stumps had a lot of machine stitching, giving the wood depth and texture. The quilts at the show in Long Beach each JULY never fail to create some ah-ha moments!
