The weather here has turned biting cold. Snow is swirling in the cities around us but so far we haven't seen any. The mornings the past two days have greeted us with frost. I can smell wood burning so I know my neighbors have their fireplaces going. It is such a wonderful smell. The colors outside my window are spectacular right now. I've had the oven going for two days straight. I made Koralee's molasses cookies, from her book, "Everything goes with Ice Cream", for a shower that I'm helping to host this weekend. I get to visit with dear friends and I'm so looking forward to that. Today I made Alicia's No Knead Bread and a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Simmering on the stove is a pot of tomato-lentil soup with spinach, corn and brown rice. My husband says its the best soup I have ever made. It is from one of my favorite cookbooks. I have been a frequent fabric shopper on Etsy lately. I was running low on Japanese novelty fabrics and had a little sewing panic attack since they are so hard to come by. Never fear when Etsy is near! I hope that you are enjoying your Friday. I get to see my daughter tonight and fill her up on good food. Have a wonderful weekend! Oh, and the turkey platter came from a local shop, isn't it darling?

I'm a fan of Japanese novelty prints, too! I tend to hoard them which is really counter productive! I enjoyed reading about your frosty days. We are still in the 80s and I long for crisper days.ReplyDelete
All those novelty prints are too cute for words!! Love the fall 6 patch quilt! And, such yummy and sweet treats you are making! Wishing you a wonderful, autumn week! xo HeatherReplyDelete
Those fabrics are so cute! Hard to believe that snow is spitting, isn't it? We're 50/50 on whether it will move down to Oklahoma. As much as I like to share, I'd rather you keep it up your way....lol Stay warm and enjoy your time with your daughter!!ReplyDelete
LOVE the turkey platter!ReplyDelete
That soup sounds delish. Nothing like soup on a chilly day.
Enjoy a cozy weekend, Renee! The snow is due to hit here Monday, and I'm sure it will strip the trees of the last of their pretty color.
And then it's winter......but I don't want to think about that yet!
Love those sweet fabrics. Wish I could peruse them in person. I am enjoying fall through your eyes - it still hot here in Florida. I just planted my winter garden. I'm late but it's just been too hot!!!!ReplyDelete
I love the scent of burning wood and leaves, but not so much the cold :>( Alas, we live in Michigan! The good news is that we still have lots of beautiful color and I think we are in for some marginally warmer temps this week :>) Love the new stash and can't wait to see what you make with it!ReplyDelete
I have no words. I am smiling after reading your post. =)ReplyDelete
