One Fish, Two Fish, Brown Fish , Blue Fish

GR&DF what a ding I was yesterday. I wrote a post then instead of posting it I saved it as a draft. I had no idea that I had done that and that the post was languishing in "save" central until the afternoon. Oh well, I guess better late than never. Just when I think I am getting the hang of computing I do some dumb thing like that.

I think I'll start off the post today with some stitching - a new piece and an older piece - The new piece (as you could probably tell from the title) is SoHRH. I finished up the second square - so here's a snap....

This square came together really quickly - now to go onto Square 3 or to square 5?? I have an exchange piece I need to get going on and then I need to get to a Christmas present - so this will go on the back stitching burner for a while. I am doing some grey fill on Garden Path - so no snap of that slow and not too interesting stitching.

The second stitching picture was a request - It is an older Halloween RR I was part of- I really want to work on the open spaces.... but for now here's a snap -

I really enjoyed this RR and wish there where a RR to join in on out in the Stitching world.

The other day on the way home we stopped off at La Victoria Bakery for a cupcake fix. Not the most authentic baked good they carry - but - when you need one, you need one..... and which one did I pick???


Here is a close up of some that reminded me of something....now what would that be??

All Hostess'y and delicious, but not what I picked....

I think that about wraps up yesterday - no visit to the farmers market - we'll get to one over the weekend. Thank you for stopping by, do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

Edgar, if you are serious about the RR, I have been thinking about starting one for myself , and would love to have you join in on stitching! Just let me know. I love the way your's turned out. I like your fishies too!

Evelyn said...

I'm guessing you picked the one with the cherry. Am I right??

Margaret said...

Love both your stitchy pieces. I remember that RR piece -- it's just so wonderful! As for the cupcake, they all look good. Did you go for the one that looks all swirly and chocolatey? :D

Some times I have duh moments when I just don't know what I was thinking or more probably wasn't thinking at all. I don't know which cupcake you picked, but I'd go for the ones with the chocolate stuff and a drop of red goo on the top. Is it cherry, raspberry (my fav) or strawberry?

Berit said...

Great post! I love the eel in that shores block! lol!

And, your RR is definitely "An Oldie But Goldie". :D Is that meadowlark? What count? I do remember you said you burrowed through several cuts of linen looking for just the right one.

Mnn; cupcakes! We TOTALLY went cupcake shopping last night--I'll not say how many we bought, but it was too many. And, they did not survive breakfast! My favorite was the raspberry cheesecake; and the "Average Joe" (Yellow cake with hocolate ganache icing).

Love the square, all of those are cute.
I would go for the cupcake that looks like is has strawberry cheese cake on the top.

I haven't done a RR in a long time what are you thinking about doing? Bet you could get some stitcher out of your DR.

Faye said...

Man!! Those cupcakes look tempting!! YUMMO.... I REALLY must get back to my "Shores" also...I only have 4 blocks done and am ashamed to say I was going to do a block per month this year...YIKKES.....Maybe you will have inspired me~~ Love the updates, Faye

Peggy Lee said...

Great progress Edgar...love that block.
The Halloween piece is so cute.
I made your peanut buttery brownies today. OH MY!! I had to cut them up and give them away to my neighbors QUICKLY before I devoured them all myself.
So delicious. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Great job on the two pieces!

Hi Edgar, love your RR, I also would love to get into one. It has been several years since I have participated in one.

I vote for the chocolate cake with the milk chocolate frosting!!

Great fish! I love the HRH designs but don't have any yet..
if you find an RR, or if Sharlotte starts one, please let me know, I have always wanted to try one but haven't yet! :)

Vicky said...

I would be interested in doing another RR, haven't done one for about 5 years. If we could hold off on starting one till the new year that would be even better :)

Sherry said...

Yum! I would have to have one of each, I'm afraid. I would pick the one with what looks like shaved chocolate but I think you picked the bright, sunshiny, yellow one! Love your shores progress - and the RR is cool.

Sue said...

Edgar,
Both of your pieces are gorgeous; I love the colors in both; what fabric and count did you use for both?

The cupcakes look dellliiishh! LOL Not good for me, though, as I am trying to take off a few pounds right now.......!

I would love to try a RR again; was in one several years ago and it did not turn out too well.........someone dropped the ball and I lost my piece of stitching in the shuffle. Oh well....

Nancy said...

Your Shores piece looks wonderful Edgar - I love those blue fish! Oh my what delicious looking cupcakes. I would have had to pick one of each!
