Found a new project to think about doing

I was at One Block Over a quilt shop in West Union and saw a store sample being worked on that I am really in love with the pattern comes from this book

One Fabric wonder quilt

You use a border print and cut out larger half square triangles and put them together into 4 patch kaleidoscope type blocks.

Do I need a new project nope do I want to start this as a new project sure do. So I need to get busy and work on some of the older projects so I can justify starting a new one.

Pineapple Fudge

I heard a recipe on a radio program Saturday WMT 600 AM the program is Open Line the were talking about a recipe called Pineapple fudge I did not get it written down so I went on line and did a search for it and found it or what I thought was the recipe I heard. Remember I am doing the check of ingredients by memory.  I found this one on  Open Line Recipe listing. The recipe is about half way down the page.  I am going to put the actual recipe here along with this picture of a piece of this fudge.



3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/2 cup well drained, crushed pineapple
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup English Walnuts, coarsely chopped

Combine sugar, syrup, pineapple and cream in a well buttered heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy reaches soft ball stage (236°) on your candy thermometer. Remove from heat, add butter, but do not stir. Cool until saucepan feels lukewarm. Add vanilla and beat until candy begins to thicken (starts to turn white). Beat in nuts, spoon into buttered eight by eight inch or nine inch square pan. As candy firms, it will lose it's slick look and become creamy. Cool and cut. Makes about three dozen pieces. Can be frozen. (Sandy Klingenberg, Bloomington, Illinois)

I pretty much did what the instructions said sorry no pictures of the process. I was also making some Chocolate fudge using the recipe on the jar of Marshmallow crème and was not thinking about taking pictures.  I did have to mix/stir this fudge quite a bit I assume so that it did not become sugary
