A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

One more...

....section on the purse....

This time I did a little butterfly, using the waste
canvas technique.  The the seam treatment to the
right of it is just double fly stitches.

AND....for a change of pace (and because I didn't get much time to stitch today)'s a recipe that you
might like to try on a cold winter night....


4 lb. red potatoes (but any potato would do)
1 c. chopped onion
1 1/4 c. chicken stock
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 c. cream cheese, cubed & softened
1/2 c. bacon, cooked & crumbled (or use bacon bits)
3 tsp. chives, chopped (optional)
3 tsp. grated parmesan

Combine potatoes, onions, stock & soup in
crockpot.  Cover & cook on low approx. 4 hours.
Add cream cheese & blend.  Top with bacon,
parmesan & chives before serving.

I might be putting a few more recipes on my blog over the next while because I have undertaken to type up all our loose recipes onto 4xz6" cards and put them into a photo album for the use of the resident cook.  Not at all sure but I might regret having volunteered for the job!!


  1. thanks for the lovely stitches and the mjammie recepy

  2. Your stomach will appreciate the typing of the recipes.....your fingers, not so much.
    Double fly stitch, has a neat look about it.

  3. That sounds like comfort food that'll stick to your ribs. Yumm!

  4. This stitching looks like we should do some stitching together! And that recipe confirmed it for me, your crock pot gets lots of use, :)

  5. such a cute butterfly! Your thread has a nice sheen: is it rayon?


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
