I am including a sneak peek of my Pumpkin Farm barn, a blog post-to-come featuring Julie Sefton's Build-A-Barn book and my own version. As a charter member of the SSOBB, I will be posting about this fantastic book and the liberating creative process on Monday, July 25, as well as offering a book giveway; you can (and should!) build yourself a barn! Stay tuned for my barn building adventure and your chance to win; details are available through the sidebar links. Speaking of pies- I have just finished making the second Corn,Tomato and Cheddar pie of the summer. This pie is so delicious (and smells absolutely incredible while baking) that I couldn't resist putting together another one almost right away! The photo, below, is directly from the website, (click for instructions) I can't recommend this recipe highly enough. So, today, whether you're baking real pies or dreaming about pies-to-come, whether you're slicing actual fruit or machine appliqueing ingredients to a background, enjoy something homemade today.
