    Hi Everyone,
    I am so anxious for tomorrow to get here too, but I should show you the wall hanging that I made to go with my Mystery Train table topper. This was such a fun project to make. I hope you will enjoy seeing it.

    I've been lurking, don't have time to do one more project right now, but loved seeing all your different quilts, maybe this summer when things settle down a little I'll make mine - can't wait to see what the new mystery will be, although that too will just be enjoyed vicariously since I can't take it on yet.

    But ... you asked for a recipe for pumpkin butter - I have one that is easy-peasy and super delish.

    Cut pumpin(s) into quarters or smaller, roast in 350 degree oven until cooked thoroughly, scrape all the pumpkin flesh into large kettle, cook slowly over very low heat,stir once in a while to make sure it doesn't stick to bottom of the pan, until it thickens up to the consistency of cream of wheat ... add brown sugar to taste (I usually put in about 1 cup for every 4 cups of pumpkin) and some UNCRYSTALLIZED candied ginger, chopped fine (I get it from Trader Joe's, hope you can find some somewhere, if not local, maybe online? Crystallized might work too, but the flavor will be more pronounced) continue cooking and stirring until the pumpkin butter is a nice deep orangish brown, it is nice and thick and it tastes just right. see, simple, three ingredients a little stirring and the aroma is wonderful even before you add the sugar and ginger.

    So, if I make some pumpkin butter can I hop on the train for an afternoon? I'll even bring my own bagels, since I'm allergic to raisins. Otherwise I'll have to be pumping away in the handcar way far behind you, trying to get everything else done so I can ride the train later.

Looking forward to the train and hope you get your projects done. Hope to see you soon...tomorrow is only 1 1/2 hours away for me!

    Oh, my, I was thinking something you start with canned pumpkin -- ha-ha-ha! I'm not even sure I'd know how to pick a proper pumpkin but the recipe sounds delish. I wonder if I could substitute, sugar free ingredients? DH is diabetic and my Weight Watchers leader is allergic to sugar. I may have to check out the Florida pumpkin crop in the fall and give it a whirl! Thanks for the recipe!

    One more question about the pumpkin butter ... don't laugh. Do I roast the pumpkins with the seed in them or scrape the seeds out first? (Suzie homemaker I'm not but my DH of 41 yrs still loves me ... I think?!)

    Sulabug that is a beautiful wall hanging. I love the petals on the flowers, I have been looking at some patterns for flowers made with those type of petals. Are they difficult to do?? LOL I wish I could zoom in so I could see the flower centers better. Regardless It is beautiful and goes wonderful with your topper fabrics. I don't know if this was asked before but what is the name of the line of fabrics you are using. I love the coordinating fabrics especially the blue print and orange print with the greens.
    Have an awesome day!

    I was thinking I read some where up in all them posts that it was not going to be posted until Noonish Pacific time. I could be wrong.

    So....it's time to switch trains. I'm going to try to keep up, but with it being summer and once a week I'm not sure. Oh well, there's always the caboose. I hope people keep posting their first mysteries here. It's so much fun to see the finished products. Sulabug, nice wall hanging to go with your beautiful mystery. Jenniky, I'm not positive, but I think Sulabug's fabric is by In the Beginning.

    I don't know why you couldn't start with canned pumpkin, roasting gives it a little kick in flavor, but canned will work too - and you can use splenda, I sometimes will mix it half and half with sugar, since my diabetes is under control with no meds or insulin - if you can get the sugar pumpkins, they're extra sweet on their own, so you can use less sugar - if using Splenda, I would just put in the chopped ginger and cook it down, then add the sweetener just before it's done - tasting it to see how sweet it is, adding a little at a time. I think all recipes are suggestions only ... sort of like quilt patterns

    Small pumpkins you can roast whole (put one or two holes in it like a baked potato), otherwise cut them up and remove the seeds, the stringy stuff is okay, it will get put in the pot with the rest of the pumpkin pulp later - I usually take the seeds out, soak them in salt water and then roast them separately - yum!

    Oh please do continue to post Ladies!!!

    ... I am sure I am not alone in saying that I would like to see these mystery projects as everyone finishes them up. I haven't been able to get back to mine again yet, and still plan to. In the meantime, seeing what everyone else does, will help me with ideas on what's next for mine.

    And too, for those that come later, it's important for you to be able to share your fun as you work on your block(s).
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!
