One Step Closer to Amish

Everyone I know has one goal in common, to become Amish-like.

October was all about learning how to make the perfect pie.  I did it, thanks to my mother-in-law.   The big test will be next week when I have to make five or more in one day.  Anyway, I think my pie ranks up there with the best the Amish can serve.  Or higher.  I am not sure.

This weekend, I upped the ante.  Call me a quilter.  Quilter Deb.  Yep, that is me.

I can pin the whole thing, stitch in the ditch quite well, and although it looks bad if you look close, I can make and sew on binding.

See that there on the bottom of my bed, the quilt that makes “my room look like a happy place,”  so say my kids?  I am pretty proud of my little flaw-full quilt runner thing.  Lucy better stay off!  It has no place for black dog fur.

Next time we hit the Amish auction, you will see my work hanging in the dark rows of beautiful quilts.  Someone forgot to hit the light switch.

The Pieper girls got in on the crafting action.  I caught one red handed.

The second Pieper lady taught the third Pieper lady how to work the new machine.

We couldn’t sew all weekend, and all good girls’ weekends must include tutus and piano socks.

Santa’s elves were very very busy.  More to come, but we can’t give away all our secrets before the gifts are unwrapped.
