Or to be more precise “We Three Kings from Orient are……) Hand stitching has taken a bit of a back seat lately as I’ve been busy at my sewing machine madly trying to tame my UFOs, but now I’m pleased to say that I have put the last few stitches into my “K” Christmas block.
K is for We Three Kings
I’m using the very talented designer Michelle Ridgway’s Alphabet Noel patterns for inspiration, but decided to change the K block a little. There is no time frame on this project, but I pick it up and do some stitching when I get a chance. Usually when I meet up with the Sew Wot ladies, and the blocks often come away on a caravan meeting with me. And there is nothing nicer than spending a little time stitching outside under a shady umbrella, is there?
It is Autumn now down here in New Zealand so the mornings and evenings are starting to get cooler, although we still enjoy nice warm days. I’m planning ahead and have made two big pots of delicious tomato soup to pop in the freezer to enjoy when winter arrives. Would you believe that last year was my first adventure into making tomato soup, and that only happened because we had a glut of tomatoes in the garden. I’ve never liked tinned (commercial) tomato soup, but must say that homemade is just delicious. I’m now smitten and a real fan of home made tomato soup, just yummy!
