Ya Gotta Love Apple Pie!
Did you know that today is National Apple Pie Day? Well, in the course of surfing the net, I just found this out, and you just can't ignore something that is as symbolic of our great country as the American bald eagle, and baseball!.. So, I thought I would direct you to a few interesting links I came across.
I like to can my own apple pie filling. HERE, they'll show you how!
It won't be long before I know I'm going to want to try THESE on some hot summer night! (make sure you scroll down far enough to see this sweet little summer beverage!)
Next, if any sewers are interested, I know I'd like to try out this quilt block, if not for a quilt, then at least for a few very pretty potholders! In fact I think I'd like to make these up, along with some crocheted ones of course, for Christmas gifts!
I'll be busy today sewing up a couple of Raggedy Annie dolls, and just starting my second 8-pocket tote; but all this apple pie sounds so good, I just may have to make one! Should any of my friends in Blogland think to do the same, I just HAD to include this video, so Hattie can show you how it's done! I absolutely ADORE Hattie McDaniel in everything I've seen her play! Whenever I'm rolling out a pie crust for one thing or another, I can't help but think of this song. I have fun trying, but I'll never sound as good as Hattie when she sings it!
