another fun adventure

Jacky and I have been working  on the fall 
orange slab project  
so lots of meetings at her house 
and sewing sessions and show and tell lol

the other night after one of the sessions, I came home
with a new Dresden template and made this
(I know its not orange silly- I cant reveal the secret
till its time)

couldnt find a back so sewed up these
kites that she had cut and gifted to me
so springy

the next morning found me working diligently
on my deer quilt- (yeah right)

I cut out some blue blades
and stitched them up

found a back and finished it

so I had to make another........
they are like potato chips I tell ya!

make sure you are saving your orange scraps
and you can even make some slabs so that you can 
be ahead of the game

our little project will be 
a no stress project~
you will want to get in on the fun
trust me

we will be doing this:

1) collect orange scraps   if you are short on some
call in your quilty friends to enhance the pile

2) taking oranges to yellow oranges and making slabs
dont worry- this time YOU will keep the slabs- if you want to add
browns thats ok. it is your project

we will be exchanging the pumpkin recipes that you 
have been finding and saving
I will try and make a file that we can all read
or will retype them on the blog for all to have
LOVE pumpkin and recipes made with it

Here is a quick one for ya
when I did weight watchers years ago the lady
that ran it used to come up with these weird recipes
that were awesome

take one can PUMPKIN  (not pie filling)
and one spice cake box
that is IT
mix just the two of them together
no eggs or anything else - ignore the box directions
batter will be a little stiff  you could add a tsp water if too stiff
make into a loaf, or muffins
for some pumpkin spice fun
you could make a cake too!
no added oil (fat) 
and quick and good........
bake till done. may take a little longer
as the pumpkin is wet but check

can "frost" with lite cool whip if desired. 
I like them plain as muffins.
the pumpkin adds fiber and vitamin A
there  you recipe already!
and you may even have the ingredients on hand

breakfast anyone?

oh and by the way,,,,,,,if you dont have spice cake mix
not to worry
use chocolate for an easy fudgy brownie like treat
or chocolate muffins

use yellow cake too.......try it and see
one of my favs was the choc cake mix and made like brownies in 
a brownie pan
top with Edys lower fat and sugar ice cream
that has like 80 cal per half cup
brownie sundae!  I KID YOU NOT

(you're welcome)

3) Jacky and I each week will show you what we
are doing with our orange slabs and we
will share how we did those projects
so you can make one or all of them
your choice.........
you have the month of Aug and Sept to finish
and reveals will be Oct 1
(I will see if I can do a linky thing so we can all see)

I am looking into a giveaway too
just sayin..........

collect those orange scraps
look up your favorite pumpkin recipe and send it off to me so I 
can put it on the blog
and make sure you make something with  your
orange slabs and show it off on Oct 1st

as we get further into it I will have more details.

what cha say?
