It has been a busy few weeks here. We have spent the last two weeks closing out our Retail space – The Little Wool Shoppe. After over 8 years of Retailing, it is time for a change. Change is good and I am looking forward to focusing my efforts on my Quilt Pattern Design Business – Starry Pines Pattern Company and offering retail items for sale on our Wool Shoppe Website. Although our brick and mortar doors will be closed to the public on a daily basis, we will still be offering lots of new projects, mysteries and Block of the Month projects on line. First! Coming is The Red Chair project, so watch for details.
And Blogging, we will keep sharing with you – Savannah and I. I have been wanting to paint our back door. Now, it will be quite the process as Savannah and I will be painting a creative new “gateway” to the building . Below is a photo of Savannah at what is now a very plain entrance….stay tuned for the changes as we make it a very magical entrance.

How Does Your Garden Grow??? - If you have squash and zucchini galore here is a recipe that you will enjoy. We have a cute towel pattern with the following verse embroidered on it……”if you don’t have zucchini, you don’t have friends!” If your friends and neighbors are sharing their abundance, try this recipe. It reheats beautifully.
6 c. sliced zucchini or mixed squashes
½ c. chopped onion
1 can cream of Chicken soup
1 c. sour cream
1 cube margarine
1 – 14 oz. herb seasoned stuffing mix
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 c. shredded carrots
Cook zucchini and onion for 5 minutes. Drain. Combine soup, sour cream and carrots, fold into drained squash and onion. Add salt and pepper. Combine stuffing mix and melted margarine which has been mixed with 1 ½ c. of water. Put half of dressing into the bottom of a greased 9” X 13” pan. Cover with vegetable mixture and put rest of dressing mixture over the top. (I would add some shredded Parmesan cheese if you like) Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until bubbly.
Have a great week!

I auditioned for a Christmas show a few weekends ago that will be put on by my dance studio. It is the first time they have done a Christmas show and thank goodness it isn’t the Nutcracker. It is a show written by the owner and her husband. It is about a girl that learns about the true meaning of Christmas, and it is called Christmas Presence. Well anyway, I got the main part, the little girl. We will be performing at the Lincoln Center, in Fort Collins, on November 30th and December 1st. I can’t wait! I start rehearsing on Wednesday. The Christmas show is going to be a blast. For the show we even have a live camel and donkey. I’M NOT KIDDING!
Phrase of the day- Life is to short for us to get mad at things not worth getting mad at. So keep your madness for times when being mad is worth something to you.
