Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments about the bourse. I used the directions on a blog (will post link later). I'd like to do several bourses, and make one for myself, too.
I never cooked a pumpkin pie with eggs. I think it would take longer to cook, due to the added liquid. I ruined at least three eggless pumpkin pies before I achieved a good one. I keep the oven at 350 degrees for the whole time, instead of starting very hot (425) and turning down later. That is what all the recipes state to do, but it did not work for me. If I make an eggless pie according to the Libby's canned pumpkin directions, the one that calls for evaporated milk and regular sugar, I plan to use less milk and see if it works better.
I finished both my Fair & Square Exchange (regular Round) piece, and my Christmas ornament for HOE . I cannot post pictures until they have been received.
I stopped by Michael's craft store yesterday and got some holiday-themed buttons to use for ornaments I'm stitching for home and for additions to family gift parcels.
I hope to have some freebie cross stitch designs posted soon, as I have been designing with my PC Stitch Pro.
And yes, finally got a pic of me onto the blog! It's hard to do a self-photo.
