Every once in awhile the resident chef (not moi, btw) arrives in my doorway to show off his latest creation. This time it was lemon meringue pie made from scratch! See?....
|And, yes, I know I'm spoiled!!|
Over the weekend (whilst pie-making was happening in the kitchen) I worked on block one of the courtship series...
Just a pansy and a flower spray done in outline stitch, chain, french knots, lazy daisies & a few straight stitches.
Another little flower area - cross stitches, fly stitches, woven wheel. I think I will add some more beads to this one.
A cross stitched rose (done on waste canvas). You can see some floral beads on the vine, currently being held in place with pins. I only have so many of these beads and wanted to make sure I have enough before I started stitching, so hence the pins.
Today's dose of mumblings...
- Found THIS article about cutting fat quarters which might be useful for anyone who quilts. And HERE's another great chart that gives quilt sizes, along with a number of other handy reference information charts. You can also find a number of other charts HERE.
- Another gem that quilters might like can be found HERE.
- THIS lady does incredible work using tea bags (be sure to scroll down!). And HERE's another incredible artist who uses tea bags in their work. There's more HERE HERE and HERE.
Today your quote is from Lin Yutang..."There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation"
