Pumpkin Muffins!

This is one of my favorite fall recipes. My kids love these and the recipe makes two pans of muffins. I do one pan of mini muffins, with mini chocolate chips. Then I add regular chips and put the rest of the batter into the regular sized muffin cups. I probably shouldn't tell you this, but my family will usually eat the entire recipe in a day. They are great warmed in the micro for 10 seconds, just to melt the chips again. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Muffins

3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. milk
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. butter/margerine melted (I use 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. applesause)
2 eggs
semi-sweat chocolate chips (mini and regular chips)

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In a seperate bowl, combine milk, butter (and applesause), eggs, and pumpkin. Pour the wet on top of the dry and combine just until moisened. Stir in chocolate chips. (I put just mini chips in at first and fill my mini muffin tin, then do the regular size.) You can add as much chocolate as you want. Put into greased muffin cups.

Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 min. for mini muffins, and 15-20 for regular sized muffins.

Makes 24 muffins.

Sneak Peek

I am going to quilt market tomorrow. I will make sure to take pictures while I am at market. I have a booth to sell my Under the Garden Moon patterns. I also get to shop shop shop for American Quilting. I like to see all the new patterns, trends, and fabrics that are coming so I can keep current on all the new things. Wish me luck! I will post again after I get back and settled.

Here are some snapshots of a couple of new patterns that will be available after market. Yes, I am down to the wire!

This is a new wool wall hanging. No faces as of yet. I promise to get it done before I fly off to International Quilt Market in Houston. It is going to be really cute!

This is a new quilt that my daughter, Mindy sewed up. These are 1" finished pieces. Cute as a button. There is also a larger version included in the pattern for those of you who panic over small pieces. This pattern will also be available after market.

Field Trip

Many of you have asked to see the inside of my shop.
So I thought I'd take you on a field trip.

This is our collection of civil war fabrics.
We have a huge variety!
Can you tell that I love this era?

Here is our check-out desk.
We have a lot of Everyday, Christmas, and other seasonal wool projects.
Yes, wool is another favorite of mine.

This corner is dedicated to our current seasonal fabrics. We carry patterns and kits for the quilts that we hang throughout the store. Let me know if you see a quilt you like, We can totally hook you up.

I also design patterns. The name of my patterns are "Under the Garden Moon". The Seasonal wall hangings on the right side by the clock are called "As Time Goes By". There are 12 separate mini wool quilts you can change monthly. They are attached to a cotton background quilt. If you want to view all of my patterns you can also click on the link on the side bar.

This is our 30's kids corner.
We carry juvenile prints and a lot of reproduction fabrics, too.
I love vintage fabrics.

Here is a peek at our reproduction area.
I also love "American Jane" and it fits right into this corner of the shop.

The cute sailboat quilt is a "Buggy Barn" pattern.

Since I took these pictures, the shop has now taken on a new look because we are always adding new quilts, great kits, and wonderful new fabrics and patterns. If you ever travel to Orem, Utah please stop in and say HI!

Thanks for coming along on my little field trip.

Talk to you soon, Amy
