Hello Lemon Pie!

Every person has at least one thing that they excel at. Some are lucky enough to excel at several things.  That's my hubby! Yep, he's a keeper :)  

On Sunday, I just mentioned how good a lemon meringue pie would taste and a couple of hours later he's pulling a homemade, from scratch....yeah, grating and squeezing the lemons and everything... lemon meringue pie out of the oven.

Lemon Meringue pie is my special treat.  It's right up there with Cherry pie.  I get one Cherry pie a year.  My mom makes one at Christmas and maybe two Lemon Meringue pies a year, made by my wonderful Mr. RQ.
That's part of what makes them so special and a treat!

MY pie smelled and looked so delicious!  Wanna see?  See!I told you it looked yummy! 
 How did it taste? Absolutely divine lol! The perfect blend of tart and sweet.  There's one piece left that I've offered to ...ahem, "trade" with Thelma for fabric lol!  Don't know if it's going to last that long.  It would be okay to eat pie for breakfast just once, wouldn't it?

I think a Lemon Meringue Pie quilt would be cool too.  Shades of lemon yellow and tones of white and tan.  Hmmm, may have to spend some time with EQ today.

On Saturday, I gave a class on making this tool rollup. It's quite a good size at 15 x 13 and can be used for more than just sewing stuff.  Some of the girls were going to fill theirs with toiletries, some with paint brushes, some with crayons and markers.
I've had to put word verification back on, unfortunately.  Too many spams.  I will not let this new word verification style from Blogger discourage me from leaving comments on my friends blogs and I hope you won't either.  I am woman and I MUST BLOG!! :) 

Happy Stitching and God Bless!

Wow that pie looks delicious. I've read on other blogs that if you do not allow anonymous comments that they have not had the spam. The word verification is pretty frustrating sometimes :-(

By the way, the word verification is a pain...but I understand it is a very "necessary evil". It wont discourage me from posting on the blogs I love. Hugs...

Ahh yes, lemon pie...sigh.. Your hubby is definitely a keeper!! You are right- the only lemon pie is made from scratch with real lemons. That stuff from a box doesn't even rate... Yummmmm. And yes- I'd have no trouble eating pie for breakfast either... :)

Love lemon pie, especially for breakfast. And how great is it that your husband made it? Cute little tool rollup.

Love the look of that pie. I agree he's a keeper.

Had an opportunity to take Shelley's class last Saturday. It was my first mystery class and she did not disappoint. It was so much fun. Shelley is a great teacher and puts so much into her classes. I highly recommend taking one. Maybe she'll do a web based one sometime.
