Linda's husband, Alan, is the editor and researcher of our newsletter.  He has been busy helping others with Hurricane Florence and Michael which has delayed him from doing a timely newsletter.  He will have a special edition documenting his travels.  Thank you for stopping by.

Volunteers Welcome

Support your Local Quilt Guild

Each day a child is fighting for their life.  

Each day a someone is fighting the evils of cancer.  

Each day a homeless is trying to stay warm,  

Each day a Combat Veteran is struggling with haunting memories. 

Each day thousands of piecers and quilters sew to make that one special quilt for a child, cancer patient, homeless, veteran or frient, to comfort.  Many Guilds have trouble getting enough volunteers to help ease the difficulties others may be having.  

Thanks to those that give their valuable time to help their guild with their special giving projects.  

If you are not helping, try it one time.   You will be amazed how your heart will beat with joy.

Chocolate Cake with No Animal Products

 Crazy Cake

This cake is a cross between Chocolate Brownies and Chocolate Cake.  We loved it.

Most chocolate cake achieve texture and moisture by using eggs, milk, and butter. These are animal products are known allergens for some people.  This recipe is for those  people who are averse to consuming these products.

3 Tbsp. cocoa (unsweetened) 

1 cup sugar 

1 tsp. baking soda 

1/2 tsp.  salt 

1 tsp. white vinegar 

1 tsp.  pure vanilla extract 

5 Tbsp. vegetable oil  

1 cup water 

Mix first 5 dry ingredients 

In a separate bowl mix vinegar, vanilla, vegetable oil and water.  Add wet ingredients to dry.  Mix well until smooth. Pour in a greased

 8" square baking pan.  Bake 350 degree on middle rack of a pre-heated oven for 35 minutes.  Check with a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.
