I had a fantastic weekend.
I still don't have much desire to sew, which is unfortunate as I have a LOT to get done.
I am hoping if I just choose a block and start on that maybe it will come back.
I did a lot of cleaning and errands on Saturday.
Hubby printed out a pumpkin cake recipe that he wanted me to make so I decided that while I was watching me Spartans WIN for a change I would bake the cake.
The recipe is from the Taste of Home website and you can find it here.
It was easy to do and the cake was fabulous.
I substituted 1 cup of homemade applesauce for the 1 cup of oil. I think it was a great substitute.
I did not miss the oil at all.
Next time I would cut down on the amount of sugar. It called for 2 1/2 cups of sugar!!!
Trying to make it more WW friendly, if cake can be that!
I let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan then turned it out.
This is before I glazed it. I used powdered sugar with some pumpkin pie spices in it for the glaze.
My best friend was never far away from me all weekend. She has decided that she loves this quilt. With the fuzzy back it is very soft.
She laid near me while I did lessons 3 and 4 in my EQ7 class online
In addition, I made one more block for the Hallowedding quilt.
These eyes were from a Block Lotto post.
Aren't they so scary??
It was a little tricky to make and this pair took me about 2 hours!
They do not give measurements but rather it is a tutorial on how to make them. T
he thing that saved me was she had them laid out on the cutting mat
so I could figure out the sizes she used to make this set.
I have another set of different eyes to make but I ran out of time.
I hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend too!
