More Play Time Now...

Brynwood Needleworks - Starfish Classmate
Yesterday marked my last day (night) as our guild's recording secretary. It was our election night. I served two, two-year terms, and have now termed out. 
While I enjoyed serving in that capacity, I'm glad that I'll be a nobody in the audience from now on. I'm looking forward to sitting with my friends, instead of looking at them from the front of the room.

I will, however, continue to teach classes from time to time. I'll be teaching the Classmate Organizer in March. I needed to make up a class model for the meeting so people could see what their finished piece could look like.

I also prepared a half dozen kits (minus the fabric) for those who wanted to purchase them. I took them with me to the meeting.

I also made a dessert, as the board members always serve refreshments at the January meetings. I found a great (simple, quick) recipe on FaceBook that was a real hit with our members. I can highly recommend it. 

Here's the recipe (Sorry, no photos of the dessert):

3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Apple Spice Cake
Found on FaceBook, prepared by Donna Liljegren
2-20 oz. cans Apple Pie Filling
1 package Spice Cake Mix
2  sticks Butter

Spread the apple pie filling into a crock-style slow cooker. 
Sprinkle entire contents of Spice Cake Mix on top of the pie filling.
Place butter on top of the cake mix. I cut mine in half, lengthwise.
Cook 2 - 2 1/2 hours on high setting. Spoon into dishes and serve
with ice cream or (my personal favorite) lots of whipped cream.

Congratulations on serving your two terms of service. I love your new class and would sign up immediately...if I were closer. The sample is sew beautiful. Dessert sounds really yummy and easy...just my style. I used to make this with canned peaches and bake it in the oven...then I would even eat it for breakfast!
