What would you do?

This morning I woke with a recipe running through my mind.  I wondered if it would be good.  So I got up and started making it, writing the ingredients down as I went.   It turned out tasty.

Oatmeal Apricot Muffins

  1. 1 cup oats
  2. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  3. 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/3 cup sugar
  7. 2/3 cup brown sugar
  8. 3/4 cup milk
  9. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 1 heaping tablespoon apricot preserves

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a bowl mix the dry ingredients 1-5 and mix well.  In a separate bowl mix ingredients 6-11 and mix well, adding this wet mixture to the dry mixture.  Mix well and then fill greased or lined muffin tins with batter to about 3/4 full.  Back for 15-17 minutes.   Let cool in pan about 5 minutes, then turn out on to rack to cool rest of the way.   I think this recipe would work good with other fruit, preserves or jams (peach, apple, raisin, banana) too.

This afternoon, I planned out the fabrics I will need for the log cabin quilt I plan to start next week.
I am going to quilt it, as I go, one block at a time.
It is going to be a log cabin with a chain.   The blocks will 9″ square when finished and it will be a full size quilt when I’m done.
I will be making it in variations of blue with the chain being a contrasting color, I’m leaning toward an antique white.
The only thing I have left to decide, is if I will make it a scrappy quilt, using the blues I have in my fabric stash, or if I want to buy fabric.  Again, I’m leaning toward the fabrics I have in my stash.
What would you do?
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
