Crochet Bunny & Apple Pie

I've sure been enjoying my daughter and granddaughters.. right now they're playing with my collection of Sweet Streets doll houses and families and furniture.  Amy is visiting with us over coffee.  And we're packing up to leave for the coast for a few days.  When Jenna saw my crocheted kitty she loved it so I offered to make her something - she wanted a pink bunny.  So here is what I came up with. :-)  Now I'm working on a purple one with blue stripes for Paige.
This is a freshly bathed Paige posing with her sister's bunny. 
Here are the girls ready to go visit with their old friends from before they moved to Ohio.  Jenna took her bunny and slept with it.  
Yesterday Dayle BBQed chicken for dinner and we were sitting on the deck after dinner and the girls were up swinging away and having fun.
Jenna is teaching Paige how to swing.  :-) 
Visiting and enjoying the perfect summer weather as the sun dips low.   
Amy's apple pie she made for us.
It was yummy!   
Would you like a bite? :-) 
OK.. time to get packed and head to the beach for a family vacation with all our children and grandkids.. yay!  ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. Those bunnies are the sweetest! You are so talented. I love how she snuggles it!

  17. That apple pie is gorgeous! I can taste it from here! Does she have a special crust recipe? It looks marvelous and I would love to have it if she'll give it up. :)

    1. This is a great and easy recipe... it's called "4-2-1-1". 2 Crusts

      2 cups flour
      1 cup shortening
      1 tsp salt
      3 1/2 to 4 TBS of ice water

      Measure the flour and salt into a bowl, stir around, add shortening and cut it into the flour with a pastry blender until it resembles pea sized crumbs. Start with adding 3 1/2 TBS of ice water and blend with a fork until just blended - the key is not to overwork or add too much water - try not to add the extra 1/2 TBS of water. It will not look like a big ball of dough, it will still be crumbly. Gently press it down in the bowl into one mound. Cut it in half with a butter knife - makes two crusts. Roll out and use. Take a piece of plastic wrap and form each 1/2 of dough into patty shape and place in fridge for at least 1/2 hour.


I absolutely love comments and thank you so much for taking time to leave me a note. :-)
