I thought it would be kind of fun to pull a few pictures from the year and share since this year seems to be flying by. I found this picture of a relative of mine and it made me think of this year. I call this year, "the year of the gun". And looking at this picture from the 1850's gave me pause to think of how it must have been in the Ole West. It would be of interest to know if this man killed anyone with his gun. Did he walk into the local saloon and shot a bunch of people at random? We have a long history of gun fighters and street shootings. I guess if there is a question here, it would be have we learned anything from history.

It has been a busy year. I look forward to sharing the day to day things, the events, the projects, and just being apart of this community of creative, lovely friends.
I hope to find some things of interest to share as I gather myself together. I have to unpack, put away, find the box with all the treasures and then share them with you. Your, Mary

Apple Pie Enchiladas
These are incredible easy to make and are Out Of This World Good!
*Please Share Me*
1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cinnamon (I have my cinnamon in a shaker bottle, so I just sprinkle some on each as I am rolling them) roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 45 minutes ..
Don't rush the 45 minute resting time for the sauce on the enchiladas before baking, this step helps to magically transforms the flour tortillas into a faux pasty dough
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until golden
Each sauce recipe is enough for 6 Apple Pie Enchiladas
*I usually make a double batch of sauce ..
Its That Good!

How Irish are you? Since I have been working on our family Pedigree for sometime now, I find a lot of Irish blood. First I have red hair which seems to tell a lot about me, and brown eyes. And if you put Arney's family with mine it gets even more so for our kids. So here is a list of surnames that float around in my family line. Davis, Durbin, Bradley, Robey, Taylor, Collins, MacColinn. So here's to us, Irish to the bone.
You might ask why does it matter where we come from? It matters because they lived, and we are all they have left….

Since I have been knitting most of the time…I have been MIA. I don’t think anyone is really interested in stocking caps and shawls.
I miss everyone, and I will settle down soon and do something’s to share.
For now here is what I have made for my niece. I used my Mothers Pearls so that Celia will have something old from her much loved Grandmother who passed away in 2003.Since they were on a broken string, I used what I needed and made the necklace.
