Cloud Nine Apple Pie

Cloud Nine Apple Pie

It’s been a family favorite since 1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue, then the Pilgrims came and John Wayne said, “Howdy Pilgrim”. My delectable cloud nine apple pie was featured in the first addition of Edible Tulsa and I hope when you make it and eat the pie you will start yodeling like Roy Rogers with his Son’s of the Pioneers and will be a favorite in your home.

TO-MORROW

A bright, merry boy, with laughing face,
Whose every motion was full of grace,
Who knew no trouble and feared no care,
Was the light of our household–the youngest there.Continue reading

My sweet neighbor Janet gave me a picture of this picture off of facebook that my mother took of us in front of this cannon, which happened to be our very first family photo since Dailey came into this world. Alive, well and a whopping 10 pounds.

Dailey’s Square Tutorial

Dailey’s Square Tutorial

I’m using Baby Bee yarn that can be purchased at Hobby Lobby. The yarn calls for size G hook, but I’m using a size E hook in order to have a slightly smaller Dailey Square.

Tiny Crochet Tutorial Part One

This is a neck travel pillow that I bought years ago. My sweet kiddos confiscated the zippered cover along time ago. So I’ve named it my “naked neck pillow”. Until now. I crocheted a blanket for my bedroom and wanted to make an accent pillow with the leftover yarn. So now my “naked neck pillow” will be clothed in soft Ivory yarn.

We’ve been doing stuff and blogging hasn’t been one of them. Obviously since the last post I did was… Um… Hmmm… I’d have to look it up. My folks were here at the beginning of May for two weeks and one of the things we did was go see the land and mow the edges of our road.
