Hi, everyone!  I haven't been able to post lately due to lack of time.  It's sure good to be back to blogging!

As I promised in my last post, here's a scrumptious apple recipe, a unique use for apples and a favorite Fall staple, pumpkin (yummmm!):


4 oz. sweet Italian sausage, casing removed
1 cup chopped onion
1 small (about 1 1/2 pound) pumpkin - peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4" pieces
1 cup chopped Granny Smith apples
1 cup cooked couscous
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tsp. fresh thyme (dried will do - just use a little more)
1 tsp. fresh oregano (or dried - just use a little more)
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 small (about 1 pound) hollowed out pumpkins


Preheat oven to 350 F.  Crumble sausage and fry about 8 minutes.  Set aside. Fry onion and 2 cups pumpkin in pan 5-7 minutes.  Add apple and sausage, cook 3 minutes.  Combine ingredients.  Fill pumpkins and place in shallow baking dish.  Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.  Remove foil, bake for 10 more minutes and serve.

This should go over well at your holiday dinners.  Enjoy!


My most recent listing is for a worthy cause, and since October is almost over it's too bad I didn't come across the fabric before the first of the month.  Buuuuut...any time is a good time to order a small dogs' coat made of the fabric, since I'll donate 10% of all proceeds from sale of the coat to breast cancer research.  Here's the coat (remember, I gladly do custom for little dogs):

Is your dog male or you're a male breast cancer survivor?  No problem.  You'll be able to choose a coat with a sky blue Peter Pan-style collar sewn onto it.

I've also added a second color choice to my hooded raincoat.  Here's a pic of it:

I almost forgot to mention the sale I made last week, a custom order for a Big Tex-style costume for...noooo, not a dog this was my first feline order, for a beautiful gray tabby cat!  I was so excited when I found out it was for a cat!  I've changed a few keywords in my Shop to reflect my willingness to sew for pussycats.  Why not???  They're built the same as most small dogs.

Gotta close for now.  My stomach is screaming for dinner (typing the recipe made me really hungry).  Be back later.  (((Hugs))) to you and your pets if you have any.
