Population growth in the holler...


We have been blessed with a precious new neighbor (we can see her house in the winter!) So, naturally, I wanted to get after sewing her a blanket from us. I had recently received some material from an estate and there were all the making for a Dutch Doll style quilt. I put an applique on the back that the previous quilter had hand-stitched with the tiniest most perfect stitches.


This last weekend JP decided he wanted to make more sausage so we made Brats and Andouille sausages. The Andouille were smoked.


Last night, we boiled some of the Brats in beer and water then JP grilled them to perfection. We had them on hot dog buns with mustard, onions and peppers. Delish!!

 I hope all is well with you all. I'm off to visit your posts. Blessings from the holler...

That is a lovely gift that you made for your new neighbor. We smoke fish, but have never tried smoking sausages. The photo of JP's sausuages is making me drool!

It is ages since you last posted. I hope you are alright, and also that you and your family weren't in the path of Sandy.


With best wishes,
