Progress and Pies!

I am teaching baking in Home Economics this year.  I have one sixth grade grade girl.  Today we made homemade apple pies.  I made one and she made one.  We used the recipe from The World Needs More Pie, here.  I love this recipe, although we still have apples left over.
 Yesterday our homeschool group hiked up to a cave.  It was pretty cool.
 I started making these 3-D bowties about four years ago.  I'll make a few once or twice a year.  I think I need to get busy.  LOL  They are four inch blocks.
 My husband got me a new cutting mat for my cutting table.  The grey matches better then that green did.  He knows what makes me happy!
 I got all of my sashing cut for cake blocks.  I'm just waiting on my last cake before sewing it together.  After I get it sewed together, I'll take it to my LQS to pick the fabric for the border.
 Of course Tiger wanted to help me!  I cut a 2 inch sashing to make it 1 1/2 inches.
If you missed my post with all of the patterns used for these blocks, you can find it here.

I do not have anything planned for tomorrow and do not plan on doing any housework.  That necessary but boring job of housework when I would much rather be sewing!  Therefore I have decided to take the day off from housework too and sew!

This morning my husband woke me up at 7:30.  I turned off my alarm when it went off at 7:00.  He asked me why I was not up yet and I told him it was Saturday and I did not have to get up.   He laughed and said it was Wednesday and I had to teach today.  I jumped out of bed!  My brain did not want to get up this morning after that storm last night!

I hope you are able to get some sewing or cooking done.  What ever it is that you love to do!

LOL! I wish everyday was a Saturday. I am so glad some schools are bringing home economic back. It's such a fun learning experience. Those pies look yummy!

I'm with Kim wishing every day was Saturday. I can fully understand wanting to catch a few more winks after a storm. Love your post. Yummy pies, projects and cat! I think you've inspired me to make a cake quilt. Yeap. I definitely want to make it. Love yours.
