Good Evening my dearest ones, how have you been? Dreadful, I hear, that's wonderful!! (LOL) Me, too.....I took today and tomorrow off of work so I could work on my living room. Unfortunately the Big Bad Bug visited me and put a spell on me. I haven't felt well today so I took a long summers end nap with my three cats on my son's bed. Don't tell him though, I don't want to upset him. Hopefully the spell will be lifted by tomorrrow so I can continue as planned.
I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while, just too busy to blog lately, but I will try and catch up on everyone's updates. I made this Blackbird Designs Sampler, called Strawberry Garden, earlier this year so I thought I would share some glimpses of it with you now. This is one of my favorite parts of this design. A sweet, juicy, sun ripened, red strawberry.
This is my second favorite part. I just love birds, especially if they are black. Oops, looks like I forgot to stitch his bead on for his eye.

Now off to the framer......
Okay, I finally got around to making my Mother-in-law a fresh peach pie. Here is a photo before it went into the oven. I used a Pillsbury Pie Crust and I sliced up about 9 fresh white peaches, added some white sugar, cinnamon and some tapiocca to thicken it. Poured the mixture into the unbaked pie crust and I topped it off with a crumb mixture of brown sugar, white sugar, flour and butter. Baked it at 375 degrees for 45 mintes.
