October Quilt Retreat

As you can see from the photos below we are all having a great time at the Victoria Inn retreat.
We had a really nice turn out and everyone has several projects to work on. We will still be there on Sunday Oct 28th so if you are in the area between 9AM and 4PM come in and have a coffee with us, and maybe we will even be able to spare a cookie.

We are doing our usual fabric arrangeing and rearrangeing. What do you think, Should we move them around again, or stay with these choices.
Of course we have had way too much food. Robin M was kind enough to share this recipe with the ladies. Give it a try, I was ableto snag 1/2 a piece this morning, and it just disappeared very rapidly.


3 1/4 cup flour 4 oz Cream Cheese
1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 Cup sugar
1 egg 1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter 1 tsp vanilla

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. At medium high speed, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in sugar until fuffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. At medium low speed, gradually beat in flour until dough forms.
Toast4 cups of pecans by baking at 350 for 5 - 10 minutes

Line cookie sheet with foil. Press cookie dough into pan and prick with fork. Chill for 10 minutes and bake for ten minutes.

In large pot over med low, melt 3/4 cup butter, and stir in 2 cups of brown sugar, 3/4 cup of honey and 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Bring to a boil stirring for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in 1/4 cup heavy cream and 4 cups of toasted pecans. Spread over cookie crust and Bake for 15 minutes. Cut when cool.
