November TUSAL

A little late but I lost my list of dates and didn't see everyone posting TUSAL until late last night so better late than never...

TUSAL 11/25/11


As you can see I've got a bunch of red orts this round with Watergarden orts peeking out from underneath. I'm almost done with my series of JBW red stockings now, 5 completely done, 1 about half done, and 2 more to stitch. I'm almost out of Ribbon Red though, so I'll have to find a substitute after I finish this one. Surely I have some red thread somewhere in my collection:) Here are the two new finishes since last post, Hearts and Chalet With Snowflakes...

Hearts 11/24/11


Chalet With Snowflakes 11/25/11


I decided to stitch the hearts instead of the background in the Hearts design because I didn't think I'd like the coverage of the red over such a large area. Just Reindeer left to finish now and then I'll pick two of the stockings to do over to get the amount I need for gifts this year.

Oh, and have you seen the WIPocalypse SAL Measi is hosting next year? Sounds like a good way to kill off some WIPs which is definitely something I need to do and it will be an encouragement to blog too.

I should probably get back to cleaning my kitchen now. I've been busy today getting ready for tomorrow, which is my family's Thanksgiving dinner. My parents and my Dad's side of the family decided to postpone our dinner so everyone could attend and not be rushed to go to other places so today I did the prep work to make stuffing tomorrow and I baked this...

Upside Down Apple Pecan pie


It's an upside down apple pie with a pecan topping. If it tastes half as good as it looks and smells I'll share the recipe. I found it in my recipes-to-try folder when I was looking for something else a couple weeks ago and it just begged to be baked. It looks complicated but was pretty easy. Waxed paper lined the pie plate and the pecans were on the bottom originally with a pretty normal looking apple pie recipe on top. It got flipped after baking and the pecan topping is slowly dripping down the sides of the pie as it cools. Can't wait to cut it tomorrow.
