Stitching and.... cooking!

Another hot week here in Kansas but it is summertime after all. Our son was home from KU for the weekend and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Love spoiling my boy with some home cooking and he sure brought his appetite along, so fun to have him here! Besides cooking I have been busy stitching on my Annies, however with heat indexs in the 100s not outside on the patio this week! My latest Annie design is complete. November Annie has gathered a bountiful harvest in her basket to share with family and friends. I can almost feel the cool crisp air, picture pumpkins and gourds, and smell turkey in the oven!

As I mentioned before I am stitching 2 sets of Annie blocks, one as red work, and one in color work.

Here is the DMC floss palette I used for November if you are interested. The floss numbers are:
black, 317, 414, 3862, 372, 3852, 435, 758, 347, 3777, 938, 921, 702, and 581.
And now it's time to think about preparing dinner. Tonight I am making a pasta dish my son and I saw the Barefoot Contessa make on one of her shows, we were both drooling over it.
Lots of heavy cream, cheeses, mushrooms and ridiccio, now that I have never used before! This recipe is neither low cal or economical, but I bet it will be good :)

I'm thrilled to find your blog, Barbie Jo. I'm doing your Annie's as a BOM from Sharon at Daisy Cottage Quilting. Fun, fun, fun.
