I would also like to get the Overshot runner and dishtowel washed, blocked and hemmed. I am anxious to see how the wool in the runner fulls out. Runner is on left, towel on right.
While I was exiled from my sewing studio, I needed a simple project to take to my monthly hooking group. Fortunately I had stashed a kit, Patriotic Checkers, that was purchased from Minnick and Simpson several years ago, in the upstairs closet (see, there is a reason for having stash from one end of the house to the other). It suited the situation perfectly. Thus, I have started another rug. But, really, it is perfect for those times when you do mindless hooking.
Yesterday as Blake and I were in the process of preserving some more veggies from the garden, I decided to give my fridge a much needed cleaning.........not my favorite job. Alas, way in the back was the sadly neglected sourdough starter. Hoping it might just be able to be revived, I pulled it out, washed the crock and fed it. It rose to the occasion, and I will be making some sourdough bread to go with the chili in the crockpot.
On Friday a dear hooking, quilting and prayer group friend tragically and unexpectedly lost her husband. She has been through so much the last few years, and has just retired and was really enjoying her life. I know that her strong faith will once again pull her through, but if you pray, she could really use your prayers. And give your husbands a big hug for no reason at all, other than you love him.....the best reason of all.
Now it is time for some stitching.
Friends who pray.
Blake, my wonderful husband.
The smell of chili bubbling in the crockpot.
