Beginnings

Pie Pops

For Valentines Day I had made these cute little Pie Pops from http://www.ourbestbites.com/. They have the best recipes and a cookbook coming out soon. I used their recipe for pie dough too and it really wasn't that hard to make. I definitely recommend using butter flavored shortening. These pops were fun to make and a bit messy but hey, that's half the fun. Don't they look yummy? I really want to try their Pie in a Jar next.

Update

It has been a long time since I have posted anything. Work has been taking up most of my time. DH is getting ready to deploy again so I thought now would be a good time to get back into blogging. I have done a little bit of knitting but almost no quilting since I finished my dad's christmas present. My collection of yarn and fabric has expanded though. I would like to learn how to make socks so that is one of my goals for the next several months. I still need to paint the house too.
I have re-connected with my friend Meghan and am teaching her to knit. She is loving it and will soon be just as addicted as I am. I see some yarn shopping adventures in our future! Right now I am working on some baby hats for a photographer friends. Later, I will have to post pictures of the projects I have been working on.
