This and that

Three things to be happy about:
(1) cobblestone streets
(2) fleece-lined anything
(3) haiku

Long story short, a haiku is a 3-line poem or couplet or little ditty that has 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line, and 5 in the last line.  Here's mine for today:
Holy smoke on toast!
Today is Valentine's day
Did you get a heart?
Can you make one?  Aw c'mon, it's easy!

I don't have anything earthshaking to say, just wanted to keep in the habit so I don't drop off again!

Do you want a good fat-free non-greasy snack that tastes okay and isn't bad for you?  One day in Costco they had samples of this apple snack that I thought was tasty, so I bought a bag of em next time I dropped in..

They're apple chips by Bare Fruit, kinda pricey but I thought they were tasty.

The actual chips look like ... dried apple chips.

They're good to have when you want something to crunch on but don't want a lot of fat and sodium; 1/2 cup is about equivalent to an apple.

Remember this block I made for my bee's 10-year anniversary swap?

Thanks to great feedback, I made a few changes that I think make the block look a bit more realistic.  I wanted to keep it simple and not put a lot of work into it:

All I did was make the "movie screen" larger and move the family closer to it - makes a bit of a difference, eh?  It's a cute block but I won't be doing another one like it.  I have more that I'll share with you in another post.

I went out earlier and dug my car out, so I can go to guild meeting tomorrow.  As I'm typing this I have a chicken and rice casserole in the oven that smells mighty fine, I think it's just about done!  Enjoy the rest of your day, I'm setting the table for lunch!

Sew forth and sew on


  1. I prefer apple and banana chips over greasy potato chips. And chicken and rice sounds good too.

  2. I love my potato chips, put those just look good. We must be think the same thing for cooking. I made chicken, yellow rice with broccoli.

  3. A year or two ago our church members submitted Lenten haiku. Once you get started, it is hard to stop so beware. Also drive carefully ... your weather is in our news.

  4. I think you have good sense in making design. Manything will give advantage for people who love clothes design like me.
    if we do it from our hearth, everything in universe will make us better.
    Thank you very much. Go on to make better our life.

  5. If those apple chips are the ones I think they are, they're probably from Cashmere, Washington, right down the road from me here in the heart of apple country.

    What a difference in the block.....good decisions.
