What`s for dinner and White

On the weekend we had visitors!
Our number 2 son and our d-i-l
and their cat, Stewie,
were here.

Unfortunately he moved before I could get a decent picture!
We had just finished supper and he was sitting there
every bit as if he was looking for his.

AND...
I finished another of the blocks for my white cloth!







The embroidered flowers at the bottom of the upper picture were done by my grandmother and came from what I would call a `tea cloth`.  The cloth itself was pretty worn so I didn`t feel
sad to cut it up.
The crocheted pineapples on the upper left came from a dresser scarf and I`m not sure of the origins of that.  

AND.....

the latest issue of CQMagOnline is up!
As usual it has a number of interesting articles and lots of eye candy.

btw - if you have been doing any CQ projects, please consider
sending photos on to Rissa to be included in the Reader`s Showcase!

Stewie is a hoot! He looks mesmerized. Must have been looking at your wonderful white cloth!
I like that silky pouf of gathered fabric fastened with the pearl--it made me smile.
