I got a little package of fabric from my sister in law recently. A small piece of this chicken fabric was included Isn't it perfect? It just makes me smile,

maybe because I am continually amused by the antics of our chickens. These girls discovered a cucumber hiding under all those leaves and proceeded to have a feast of it. If they can get to it - it's theirs!

I made an impossible pie the other day. This one is coconut.  Do you remember they were all the rage years ago?  What's not to like - you just mix everything together, pour it in a pie pan and bake. Supposedly it makes its own crust, and it does sort of, but it's not much of a crust. Anyway, it's still mighty good!  Here's the recipe if you want to try it:


4 eggs
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup self-rising flour
2 cups milk
14 oz. shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat eggs thoroughly in mixer. Add melted butter, sugar, flour and milk. Beat until well blended. Stir in coconut and vanilla. Pour into two 8-inch ungreased pie pans. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool and cut.

The original recipe did not call for that much coconut, but we like a lot, and it did not hurt it one little bit! Comfort food.

This little quilt has now had borders added to make it a reasonable size and it has been quilted since this picture was taken. I just need to get the binding sewn onto it. 

I've been absent from my blog for a bit. We've had some serious health issues with Miss Ru. She's not out of the woods yet, but she is improving daily. Thank God! He is so faithful. I cannot imagine having to live my life without the love and care of the Lord.

I hope you've had lots of good times since I last heard from you. I fully expect us all to have many more!

Hugs and kisses,

Your Miss Ru has been on my mind of late. Bless her heart. I hope she continues to improve and is well soon.

Cute fabric. Love your chooks!
That impossible pie looks delicious.
And the progress with the quilt is looking good, too.
Of course I want to wish your daughter all the best. It is good to know she is improving. I hope you are looking after yourself as well.

Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear about sweet Miss Ru ... But am glad to hear that she's improving. I'll definitely be praying that she continues to get better ... And for you (I know that no matter how old our kiddos are, when something's wrong with them, we mamas can't help but be concerned). {{{hug}}}
