The turquoise is a scarf for myself.
I want to knit each of the dishcloths in this book
and give them as Christmas 2011 gifts.
Love the quilts in these books.
I plan to make this "Plain Spoken" quilt from
The Modern Quilt Workshop
for my 10 year old son in shades of dark blue and gray.
I first saw it here at Blueberry Buckle.
Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?

Our house was built in 1920.
Unfortunately, most of the original light fixtures,
light switches, and plumbing fixtures have been "upgraded."
A few wonderful things remain and
they bring me such pleasure!
The latch on the back kitchen window.
Bracket holding the shelf in the pantry.
Pantry door knob.
Handrail going up the steps.
Stairwell banister in the living room.
It's really not that "orange."
And it's still unpainted!!!!!

I think there are some things that just taste better in cast iron.
Fried apples would be one of those dishes.
Melt 1/4 stick of butter in the cast iron skillet. Peel, core, and slice 4 apples. Toss in about 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Stir well. I covered mine with a lid for a few minutes because I needed them to cook faster. Enjoy the bubbly, sugary goodness!
