Claudia, Clarita, Gaby and Maria Emilia

Hi Minerva friends:
I had been here for a month and I couldnt see guys, I felt so bad...I had been really busy taking my quals and moving my stuff and now it is time to leave Gainesville and start my research in Ecuador, my natal country. But I cant go without tell you that I really have good times with you, I learned a lot about crafts and enjoy it :-), but most important I learned about courage, persistance, respect, friendship, kindness and generosity. You really are going to be in our hearts(my mom, my sister and I). You have a home in Ecuador, come to visit us.
We are planning to start a branch of Minerva Club in Ecuador, my mom is really into it, I will sent pics if we finally make it.

Thanks again for everything

Apple crisp


Once again our Sunday's meeting became a bit more crowded than many other Sundays this summer. We had a nice crowd and we enjoyed our time much that we didn't realize when 6 pm went by...

It is hard to appreciate, well it is impossible actually in this picture, the wonderful hand quilting that Teri is doing in her quilt. You can actually see it best when you look at the back of the quilt..she is going to have entertainment for a while, it is so intricate and beautiful!

And as usual Gladys brought some fruit and I decided to try a dessert that a friend of mine taught me. It is quite sweet but quite delicious as well. Everybody loved it and they asked me to post the recipe it goes:


4 apples

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup of water

1 cup flour

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick of butter)

Put sliced apples in pan (don't need to peel them)

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle oer apples

Pour water over apples

Mix flour, sugar and butter (warm 30 sec) and crumble with a fork

Sprinkle crumble over apples

Bake 40 min at 350 F.


I wish I had a picture to show!!! but It was good so it was gone before too long!
