A Little Each Day!

I've steadily been putting in 10 minutes of hooking each night and the Peace On Earth Rug is almost done. It's been fun seeing how each part comes together. I can't seem to find any time during the day due to an active lil' boy. I caught him climbing in a chair today and up into the windowsill to have a closer look at the cows.

I did find a little spare time to make a new penny rug. Autumn days will be here soon and I've been in the mood for a little pumpkin making. I might even have to open up the cupboard doors and find some goodies to make some muffins.

Here's a tasty treat "Pumpkin Bran Muffins" and they are only 1 point on Weight Watchers.

Here is what you need:
2 cups All Bran or Fiber One Cereal
1 Cup Skim Milk
3/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Mix cereal and milk: let rest 5 minutes. Add pumpkin, egg, spice and brown sugar. Stir until mixed. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix together. Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out cleanly.

Be sure to check back later this week I'll be having another giveaway.

Happy Trails...Ginger

You accomplish so much! I don't know how you do it.
Peace on earth is gorgeous and the pumpkin penny rug is great. I'm working on my first penny rug ever.

Love your Autumn penny rug. It is really pretty. You do such beautiful work...well, maybe it shouldn't be called 'work' since it is obviously something you love doing. I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the wonderful pictures.

Peace on Earth is going to be a beautiful hooked rug when you finish it. Your penny rug is gorgeous. Fall is my favorite time of year and can't wait to start decorating. Can't wait to make the pumpkin muffins.

Is the peace on earth a pattern? I love it

Primitives By The Light of The Moon said...

Jenny...It is a pattern by Edyth O'Neil. You can find the pattern through Woolley Fox. I will post a link in a day or two I have finished hooking the rug. It was lots of fun!

Ohhhhh, the Peace on Earth hooked rug is just soooo wonderful. The penny rug is terrific too. ALl the different plaids give it such a great texture.
