It’s Apple Festival Time

It has cooled off for a few days, with gloriously crisp mornings putting me in the mood for Autumn days ahead. The Apple Festival is this weekend, with most of the festival restored after last year's cancellations. Time for an apple recipe, a look at some of the festival fun and an apple tablescape or …

Just Roll With It Embroidery

The last time we had this embroidery on a Sunday chat, I was in the middle of the stitching. For some reason, I had a hard time getting going on it. I think the decisions on colors stymied me for a bit. Once the decisions were made, it went a bit faster. Having a few …

Sunday Chat

With the summer winding down, I usually bring out my August placemats and table topper for a new tablescape. This year I haven't been motivated to set a nice table, other than just the basics for me and My Sweet Babboo. So, maybe you'd like to see a couple of past tables with these patchwork …

Sunday Chat

This week has just been so busy, with car club events, playing pickleball, quilt meetings and lunch with friends. It is no wonder that I have little accomplished in the sewing and crafting room for the week. On Thursday, I went to a quilt area meeting then stopped by the Quilts of Valor sew day. …

Christmas Redwork Pillow

The Christmas Redwork project almost didn't get finished this season.  It seemed like the days just flew by and I didn't get a lot of stitching done each week.  Progress was made, but just not quickly. Last weekend, stitching resumed in earnest until the redwork was done.  I wanted to add some beads to dress …

Redwork Christmas

Getting back to my redwork project today, as it was put to the side for the entire month of October.  I think I have enough time left to finish it for this year.  When I last wrote about it, I had stopped here with the bottom section done, and the Santa started. Stitching on the …

Sunday Stitching

Sunday is a fine time to slow down, take a break from the week and relax.  I've been taking some time to do some handwork, starting a Redwork Project a couple of weeks ago.  Only a little bit has been accomplished so far though. I did get the bottom section finished last time I had …
