If you couldn't tell already, I really am such a homebody. It seems like above all else, I'd rather be at home creating; whether in the kitchen or on the sewing machine. While reading Angry Chicken's blog, I came across a recipe for apple cake. Amy says it's delicious, and I'd have to agree with that sentiment. This apple cake is over the moon good. I baked some of the batter in a loaf pan, and put the rest in this little maple leaf pan. Amy used a bundt pan which would be fantastic, I think, but I couldn't find ours. Mmmm...good.

I'm only a *little* behind on my fwqal blocks. This is last week's finished set.
Block 37, Flowerpot, and Block 38, Four Winds. The Four Winds block took quite some time to put together. Gah! So many tiny pieces.

In other news, I'm starting my Christmas sewing. This is a pile of fabric I cut last week for a surprise gift. I can hardly believe October is here and I need to jump start my holiday sewing!
How's October treating you so far?

My October is great so far, Laura. Thanks for asking ;-)
I, too, am a happy homebody. I used to feel bad about it, but realized that is who I am and where I love to be. Was really nice reading about a fellow homebody today. Happy crafting! Love how your blocks are coming along so far!

I didn't know Susan Branch, btw, but I'm in love with my new book!

Yay for apple cake... I've made some yummy cake in the past. But now I'm sold on that apple pie.

Happy sewing!
