I am meeting Leigh Ann today. She is finishing up one of the quilts for Spring Quilt Market. I am finishing up the other two. The center is appliquéd on the second one and I have 3 of the 4 borders done. Homestretch.
This is what is will look like when it's finished.
This quilt is called Rambling Rose. This, and the other two quilt patterns will soon be going to the printer and we should have them up on our website for pre-order in a few days. We sure hope you like them.
What else has been going on while the quilts were being stitched? Gibby has been watching the neighborhood.
Here he is on the windowsill watching all of his buddies out for a walk. This is my view of Gibby watching the world go by.
This is my view from my stitching chair. That's my wagon in front of me with my sewing stuff. To the left of the TV is my bookcase of quilting books. You can never have too many quilting books. Yes. It's that boring here. I'm taking pictures of my TV.
What else - oh, I cooked something new yesterday. Gnocchi. I was walked through the recipe by an Italian friend. Here is how I started - with some potatoes.
Some of the tools....
What can I say..... I had a good teacher. The gnocchi were delicious!!! My only prior experience with gnocchi were the frozen kind from the supermarket. Oh, never again. These were easy and were soft and tender. Bill and I ate them for dinner last night sautéed with butter, bread crumbs, and fresh sage. The rest are in the freezer waiting for another day. Uh, here is the finished pasta before it was cooked. I hesitated to post this picture because they aren't very pretty at this stage - but what the heck, here they are.
Sorry, no more pictures. Once they were cooked, they went from stove, to table, to our bellies. Yum.
Look for the rest of the quilt patterns from Independence Trail fabric soon.
