How can there be only 2 more days of September?
I'm writing this on a cool, windy, rainy night. I'm wearing sweat pants, sweatshirt, and socks. Socks, people! It's been a few months since I've worn those. Someone in the neighborhood is burning logs in their fireplace and the whole neighborhood smells wonderful. The neighborhood is also quite noisy. There are many, many black walnut trees in this block and today seems to be the day they are all dropping. If you aren't used to the noise every fall you might think artillery is hitting the roof.
Fall is definitely here. I made this a couple of days ago and the recipe is going into the permanent file.
This is what is commonly called the New York Times Plum Torte. You can find the very easy recipe HERE.
The weather is particularly nice since I'm busy sewing a quilt for Quilt Market next month. I can't show you much, but I'll give you a couple of hints.
Since I'm in the holiday mood - how about a little sale? As a thank you to our Block of The Month customers, we but some quilt backings in our Etsy shop. We gave a special coupon code to the Portage Lake BOM members - BACK40 - and they could purchase their backs at 40% off. The sale is good for the whole month of September. We have just a few quilt backs left - and we have 2 days left in September.
Let me give you another hint - as long as the total of your "shopping cart" is $56.00 or more (the cost of the quilt backs) - everything you put in your shopping cart would be 40% off if you use the coupon code BACK40.
For all of you Block of The Month people - you can get another back, or anything in the shop that is at least $56.00 in value to take advantage of the sale again, there is only a few more hours left in September. Thank you all - we sold a ton of quilt backs.
