Not Just About Stitching.

The hardest thing about blogging is coming up with a title.  Tonight's entry encompasses a pile of stuff

I had made pot roast on Monday.  I make it in the slow cooker and just cook the meat with seasoning and a can of Campbell's Beefy Mushroom Soup.  If you haven't used this stuff, it's awesome.  I prefer to cook my potatoes and veggies separate from the meat.  I had a big chunk of meat left.  I had pot roast soup at a restaurant one time and decided I would look for a recipe on line.  I made it for dinner and it was delish!
Here is the link:  Sunday Herbed Pot Roast Soup

Day 9 of her awesome give-a-way.  She is also having a phenomenal sale.  So check it out on the link:  Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe

Thought you needed an updated picture of the boys.  Henry Ford nearly bought the farm today when I caught him with my overdyes.

 I'm plugging along on PSS Cinnamon Stars.  I am hoping to finish it this weekend.  I'm not sure if I will start the Quaker Thanksgiving or the Christmas Mystery Sampler.   I should probably do the the Sampler.  I still have a Christmas present to stitch up.
 My camera never seems to get the color right.  The top is with the flash and the bottom no flash.
 Saturday is the opening day of rifle Deer Season.  There is massive frenzy in the air.  The grocery store today was a madhouse.  I guess there was also a sale going on.  This was the display by the meat department.  I texted the pictures to Katy her comment was, "It looks like it comes alive at night and kills people who don't buy meat."  I think she could be right.
 The creepier close up.  Noticed the essential placement of beer.
Have a busy weekend planned working on projects.  I really need to go through the binder I use for recipes and clean out ones I will never make.

Hope your week has been wonderful.

I have a comment for the guy who posted a comment on my blog.  Hey Mr. " I hate American women",  I'm an American woman, married to an American man for 26 years.  I must be doing something right, stay off my blog!  Keep your hateful comments to your website.

Keep on Stitching


  1. Cinnamon Stars looks super! Interesting display at the meat counter. Thanks for the chuckle about it coming alive. The pot roast soup sounds very tasty; might have to give it a whirl.

  4. First of all, Henry may be a holy terror, but he she is darn cute, can't wait to see him at Christmas. I s Buster not wearing a sweater? And now for the display -- OMG and only in the UP. Love you Sis

  5. Creepy only begins to describe the display! I'm not sure I'd want to venture into that department with him perched there;D
    Great progress on your Cinnamon Stars, love that name.
    Your pups are so dang cute, even if one is a bit of a poop disturber!

  6. I do love your Cinnamon Stars! That is one I have to do! That same creep posted that same message on my blog. Good for you for responding, I just deleted him. I had to chuckle at your comment about the guy at the grocery store!

  7. Cinnamon Stars looks great ~ as do those adorable dogs! :-)
    Now the display at the supermarket…ugh, creepy.
