With all the blocks finished, I'm ready to start piecing together the quilt top, but I probably won't get to that until the end of the year. There are lots of quilt tops in line ahead of it.
The new block for the Bee-utiful Quilt-A-Long is out now. This one is called "Bee Grateful".
After I trimmed the block for Gingerbread Square, I made up this one to be stitched. The black "door" to the hive is applique.
Block #13 should be out later today. There are lots of hand-stitching projects in the works right now. When I've finished the current two blocks for the quilt along, I'll get to work on Block 7 of 12 for Hocuspocusville. This is how it looks.
Yesterday I got to work on the next block for the Wheel Estate quilt. This is my project for this year's
There was just a little bit of time left before I needed to quit for the day yesterday. So far, I have the background pieces stitched together.
Exciting, eh? Also, I've traced out the fusible and fused it to the backs of my fabrics for the first few pieces. When I get started today, I'll start cutting these out and fusing them down.
And that's where the sewing stands at the Three Cats Ranch.
It's a CSA pick-up day today. In last week's share was a head of cabbage. I used it to make these Shrimp Enchiladas with Roasted Poblano Cream Sauce.
Since I also picked up some chanterelle mushrooms at the farmer's market this past weekend, I'm hoping against hope that there is a bunch of chard in this week's share. If there is, I'm going to make this delicious Chanterelle Mushroom Risotto.
It's one of our favorite meals, and since the chanterelles are a wild mushroom, they're sometimes hard to come by...especially at this time of year. And if there isn't any chard? Well...then I plan on visiting the farmer's market in our little town of Newberg tomorrow afternoon. I keep telling myself I'm going to go, and then I'm always too lazy. One way or another, I'll get there tomorrow. Apricots are also on my list of must-haves before it's too late.
So with that I suppose I'd better do something productive.
