Fall Swap

I received a wonderful swap package in the mail this week, from Julie .

She sent me a cute wooden fall basket full of wonderful goodies. A journal, hot cocoa Mix, a pack of Mary Englebreit cards, a stack of cute quilt squares to make an I-Spy quilt and lots of fall leaves.

I knew I wanted to make a table runner with some fall quilt squares I had, so I started cutting and sewing and came up with this runner. I didn't do the hand binding I went for fast and sewed and turned it inside out and than quilted on the top. I made a little pumpkin and threw in a couple fall candles and included one of our favorite cookie recipes.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups flour (I use wheat)
1 cup quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter/margerine, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup raisins opt
1 cup nuts (any kind) opt

Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Cream butter, gradually add sugars, beating untill light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips, raisins, nuts. For each cookie, drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15 min..

I oOvermeasure all the dry stuff except for sugar. I left out the nuts and raisins and added extra chocolate.

Wonderful cookies.
