not a cookie recipe.

While most of you are thinking about cookies
or maybe even MAKING cookies...
I'm making these.
Are you tired of pumpkin recipes yet??
PUMPKIN MUFFINS.
1 stick butter...softened
3/4 C brown sugar
1/4 C. molasses
1 egg
1 C. canned pumpkin
1 3/4 C. Flour
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 C. chopped nuts
Mix it all together.
bake in little muffin tins 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
YUM!
You may have to double this...
I made them yesterday and we're out already!

Here's my first block.
I have another sick friend from my quilting class.
Since there are quite a few of us in the class...
it's a "no brainer".
Every one can make a square and then
put them together for a quilt!!


Every one said they would make a nine patch with 5" squares.
Then they will cut them like this!
Have you guessed already?



Yes....A disappearing nine patch.

The ladies were asked to use florals.
I think Jean will love looking at all the different fabrics
as she fights her illness.

I look forward to seeing what it will look like when
we have ALL the squares together!!
We should have them all by next week...
So you won't have to wait tooo long for me to show you either!
I'm also adding this to Amy's sew and tell!
