Stitchery Love Finish...

As February ends today I am happy to say I have completed my Jenny of elefantz.com Stitchery.  I am tickled with how sweet this has turned out. My plan is to frame it in a simple shiny red frame because the recipient loves red.  Jenny finished hers as a mini quilt and that may be how I finish this one.  I will have to see what it looks like in the frame.  I have linked Jenny's tutorial for you.  It will work on many ideas.
We had a wild day of sun, rain, hail and snow flurries yesterday. Thankfully nothing stuck but everything is wet again.  Today we have sunshine and it has been a beautiful day.  I was able to prepare all my mailings for Random Acts of Mail and Love Notes and my other recipients.  Then I went to the post office and the market.  Nice and slow afternoon. I should be working on purging and organizing more drawers and cupboards but they did not interest me today.  Yesterday Mr. C bought me a new set of very nice pots and pans and I managed to clean out my slide out drawers and replace my old pots and pans.  I feel giddy to get new domestic equipment as I learn to enjoy cooking for and with Mr. C.  We are both learning together and thank goodness we have a very large kitchen.  I am amazed at how much space two people can take up just preparing a meal.  I have never enjoyed cooking because it takes hours and is eaten in minutes and with very little gratitude.  I am embracing my domestic duties more and more with time not spent working for others.  I am blessed!

This is Chicken Coconut Curry Noodle Bowl.  It was beyond delicious...and we have another meal of it in the freezer.  YUMMY!!!

March is almost here and let's see what it brings.  We already have longer light in the evening and I really like that.  March 12th is our Daylight Savings time and we move our clocks forward 1 hour.  Spring can't be far away...the daffodils are blooming in town...mine are budding.  Usually they get some rain and snow to smash them down so I know Winter is not over.  Creative Bliss to each of you...


  1. Oh, it's so gorgeous, Sherry!! I love the sweet duck with the button eye and the red heart!! The little bee buzzing around is adorable!! The details are fabulous!! And yum...the chicken coconut curry noodle bowl looks so delish!! Have a great evening!! Big hugs :)

  2. red will set the duck off so well either as a frame or binding if you make it as a hanging. The meal looks delicious I have started adding a small tin of coconut milk to the soups I make, like you do not enjoy cooking these days

  3. Love your stitchery! I hope the sun keeps shining. Nothing to encourage time in the kitchen like a new set of pots!

  4. How sweet your embroidery is. I have many of Jenny's designs saved and one day may do some. Your meal looks yummy and how great you are cooking and learning together. Happy March Sherry.

  5. Oh Sherry , the stitchery looks so cute and wonderful, well done dear .
    And so does the coconut meal . it look as though you are wonderful cooks, both, a beautiful plate, dear!! Still no spring here,but hopefully it will soon arrive. Hugs from me Xox

  6. Your hand stitching is amazing! That noodle bowl DOES look delicious!

  7. You've done Jenny proud! Sweet stitcher you. Your soup looks interesting. I don't care much for cooking, either. Here with my daughter, I do all the prep work and they put the meals together when they get home from work. Enjoy your day! XO

  8. New pots and pans - Mr. C must love you! We're still using the ones we bought when we got married 38 years ago - have only had to replace one in all that time. Your sweet little duck is so cute! Wish I had more hours in the day so I could play along too.

  9. Love your stitchery! I'm sure you'll enjoy cooking with your new pots & pans! Happy March!

  10. Hi My Talented Friend, Love this stitched beauty. What an amazing piece and it will be stunning in the red frame. Oh how delicious your soup looks. Have fun cooking together with Mr. C.
