Small Update

Well I am finally able to do some updates that I had wanted to do on last week, but never seemed to have the time. And today is going to be fairly busy as well. My daughter has court today regarding the beating that she took a few weeks back (details in a previous post). We are hoping that today will end in her favor with him being put in jail. We will just have to wait and see. Anyhow I do have some pics of my RR block that I have been working on in the CQI group, FF Sampler RR, it is Amy's block. I have done the stitching and all I have left is to add the beads, which I will do tonight and then mail it off tomorrow. Her block has been a good one to work on and very pleasing to look at. Here are the seams that I have worked on These two pics are of the buttonhole stitch and the row of roses that I did. There will be beads in the middle of the roses and in the wheels. I tried to remove the duplicate but for some reason blogger would not let me.
Here is the row of roses :This is the patch with the ribbon , I really like the way the ribbon went with the colors in this block. It has many of the colors that I like as well.
Finally this is Amy's whole block.
Now this has nothing to do with sewing but I just had to post this pic of the pumpkin stew that I made. Since the weather is getting a nip to it I decided that it was time for some good comfort food. This was a new recipe for me, but it was so good. Talk about a good dish for cold weather, well this really hit the spot. You actually cook the stew in the pumpkin!
And here is a pic of a bowl of this goodness!
Not only does this taste really good, but the smells while it cooks is wonderful your whole house smells like pumpkin with a blending of the other flavors. I will definitely be cooking this again. This is all I have for today until next time Happy Stitching!

Small Update

Just wanted to do a smallish update since it has been a while since I posted. I have been extremely busy with family type goings on. And on top of that a really bad migraine which is finally much better. I have some things to share as soon as I am able. I did make a really pretty pic of a tree in my neighborhood last week. To me this tree is so beautiful and I just love looking at it. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the pic as much as I do.It has rained for the last two days here and the leaves are falling from the tree now, but it still has enough to be breathtaking. I just love this time of year, and today it has been misty out but still beautiful and the smell of fall is all around. My mom had a fire going in the fireplace when I went to see her today. She had fallen and hurt her right knee pretty bad. The dr. said it was a really bad bruise and sprain of the ligaments around the knee, but no cracked or broken bones. Thank the Lord for that. She is having some pain but is glad it was not serious. I am working on some different projects, but this has not been a very productive week. Although I am able to say that I have mailed off some of the things I had needed to mail out last week but was unable to at the time. And I have finished the last rr that I am in and it will be going on its last mail out to the owner in the morning. I will post pics as soon as possible. I also have a post card to get in the mail. As always, Happy Stitching everyone, and I will post again over the weekend.

Something I'm Working On

I just wanted to post a couple of pics of a project that I am working on. My best friend in Texas is getting married in December. I decided that I wanted to make something personal to her from me. And this is what I came up with. Using just three colors and those being colors that she likes. Purple, Gold and White. This is the foundation I used, I have never used a pattern like this and decided to try and make one this time. I cut out each piece and used it to cut the fabric by. I think it turned out well and I will be using this process again.
This is the heart in the middle before sewing (above) and sewn down below.

And here is the final pic of the whole block pieced and ready for embellishment.

I will post further pics as I progress. As always Happy Stitching,
