Thank you sooo much Wendy and Madame Samm for such a "Wickedly" great hop!  We all had so much fun and seen so many "Wicked" projects.  

So now that Halloween is over what do you do?   The trees are all turning such beautiful colors,  Fall is in Full bloom.  Time to clean our yards and clean out the flower beds.  Get everything ready for Winter.  Oh, and start baking.  (I love to bake).  It is the time of year for Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Pies, Pumpkin Bread, Mincemeat Pies, Apple Pies, etc.

Well, I got lots of Apples....

I would like to share a great Apple Cake recipe with everyone.

                          APPLE CAKE

Peal and dice 5 large apples

2       cup sugar
2       cup flour
1       tsp. baking powder
1       tsp. baking soda
1       tsp. cinnamon
   dash of salt
2       eggs
1 ½   stick butter  (melted)
1       cup milk
1       cup meats (optional)  I use chopped pecans

         Mix all ingredients together.  Put in 9” X 13” pan.  Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees.  Serve plain or top with whipped cream or ice cream.

This is a very moist cake and sooo delicious.

This time of year my husband comes home from work to a house that always has a  pleasant aroma every night.  As he comes in the house it is "Hi, honey, how was your day...What did you make?"  LOL

Did you ever make a flannel quilt?  I made this one with easy 2 1/2 inch squares and 2 1/2" X 4 1/2"  rectangles.    I just arranged them in different angles.  It sure was a puzzle putting it together so not to get to of the same fabrics together.  Ahhh but it is sooo soft!  Won't be long and the cold weather will set in and I will use it to sit and watch movies at night.

  OK,   I went to and got a winner for my 1 yard of Halloween fabric:


My Winner is:    KATHY H.

I will be e-mailing her shortly.

I hope everyone had fun on Halloween and please, do try my cake.  You will not regret it.

Hay, now don't forget the next hop coming up.  We are soon at the end for the year.  You don't want to miss out:
