Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - we had 3 wonderful days off (Rico took today off also, so he has another day for napping with the who hounds!!) We really didn't do too much - in fact not much at all!!
We had breakfast out and take out or delivery for dinner - except last night.... I made ham, baked sweet potato for me and baked russet for Rico, garlic green beans and a super easy summery dessert.
I did some stitching... finishing up Block 11..
and an overall shot...
I set my goal and actually made it!! Shores is stitched on 36ct LL Vintage Autumn Gold using the recommended NPI Silk. Only one more Block (sort of) I did start the stitching on Block 8 -this is also a monster fill in Block - but instead of pale Jade it uses lots of pale Grey.
I also worked some on an Exchange piece and my CC Cottages piece, but I don't have any photo's of them to show, yet.
Now, back to the Summery Dessert... all you need is....
... and Angel Cake, whipping cream and some Strawberries... take the hulls off the starwberries and cut in half - place in a bowl and sprinkle some sugar over them..
In a little while they will start to release lots of delicious juice and soften up. Take the whipping cream and whip to a stiff peak - add a little sugat to the cream if you would like sweet cream. Cut a hunk of cake, ladle some strawberries and juice over the cake and plop a big old dollop of delicious cream on top et viola!! A super easy dessert that foreshadows the oncoming summer!!
You can subsitute Pound Cake or even a short cake under the starberries.
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks for stopping by!! Do stop by again!
