Apple tart

For the first spring quilting gathering, I decorated my house with flowers.

Our quilting group is becoming sometimes half knitting group. Eleni, our great long-arm quilter is crocheting a stunning jacket from a Rowan pattern with Rowan yarn. I am eager to see it finished. She as well did an apron for Michele, of her own pattern. We had fun trying it and we all want one!

Michele is knitting a wonderful blanket and the other friends are progressing with there quilting projects : Flower Garden hexagons, diamonds...

For coffee time I did for the first time a gluten free apple tart. I used for the pie dough a mix of buckwheat, corn flour and rice flour. The result was very good and well appreciated though I am the only one to be on gluten free diet!

Wishing a wonderful spring to everyone!

  10. What beautiful photos to start off my day! Wonderful friends, flowers and projects - not to mention the delicious look food! I think the apron made by ?Eleni is such a good idea, no ties just a slip on I guess. May you have many more happy gatherings!
