PIF's arrive

The other two PIF's have arrived safe and sound - Here are some snaps ....

for Karen.......

...and for Lisa.

Do you see a theme here?? All the charts where parts of Alphabet Zoo - such a great stitch. I will need to do this whole alphabet piece at some point.

I do thank you all for the kind comments about the ABC piece. I also think we all agree that baby Pidges are less than beautiful!! Don't we learn lots from each other Mary gave a name to the pidgelettes - Squabs - now who would have guessed. I have had squab on a plate and it was way more delicious and better looking than either pidgelette in my window box!!

Berit wanted to know about the stuffed shells - yes - it is a la Florentine - I actually sort of made up this recipe as I couldn't find a single one that I liked but I could find parts of recipes that appealed to me - so I just combined them together for the final product. The basic recipe is one from the Frugal Gourmet I got a long time ago. I have changed it up quite a bit since then with other additions to its present form.

A little Mystery Stitching and more Christmas Stitching last night. We have a three day weekend coming up so I hope to finish up the mystery Sampler to show it off next Monday. Now that I have put that in writing it probably wont happen!! :)

There have been quiet a few flickers but nothing remarkable and lots of repeats. I do love watching a good movie again and again. I know it makes Rico insane and I have heard more than once "Haven't you seen that before???" He gets the raspberry and I re-watch the flick!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! I really appreciate the time you spend here!!

Take care,


  1. Thank you again Edgar, i love my pinkeep and goodies!

    Which of the Loose Feathers are the mystery design in? i have 2 of them, but not sure if they are in order or what? thanks!

  2. Very cute PIFs! The lion looks so peaceful sitting there.

  3. Love the PIF's, too! What thread did you use?

    I have several old, classic movies in my collection and when I can't find anything on the boob-tube (which is often!) I put in an old movie. My DH has his big screen downstairs in his "man cave" so I watch my movies upstairs. He'll come up to see what I'm watching and when he sees it's a "repeat" movie he always says, "Not that one again?" Then he laughs and goes back down to his "cave" :) What can I say...I love my old movies...even if I've seen them a million times :)

  4. Doing a bit of catching up and everything is looking wonderful. I love all of the PIF's, they are fantastic. The ABC SAL piece looks just stunning!!

    My store opens July 1st!!

  5. The pyn keepes that you sent as PIF's are beautiful. I love that color.
    Congrats on the finish of the ABC sampler. It is indeed beautiful.
    Small haul but very nice ones at your weekend travels. I thought of you a few times this past week as I was in a couple of antique/junk stores and saw some blue plates. Perhaps you could give me an idea of what it is you are looking for as I saw several very inexpensive possibilities.

  6. Beautiful PIF's Edgar!!!! I've never seen those charts before.

  7. Aww, don't razz Rico. I can't stand watching Joe's movies over and over again. It's always some outdated 70's Western that I can't stand. Now I could watch Dr. Zhivago, Forrest Gump or Out of Africa a hundred times!

  8. Thank you again Edgar for the PIF - lovely stitching and what a great design. I might have to put this on on my wish list. Thanks again!
