Chocolate Covered Cherries


Another quilt in the to-be-quilted pile. This is from, hmmmm... I think a Possibilities book, "Super Simple Strips." Jane kitted the strips for The Fabric Patch and I grabbed a set of them because I loved the colors. It was real easy - another of my one-handed quilts. Now to get it quilted!

I ran by the furniture store tonight on the way home to find out why I haven't gotten the bookshelves I ordered. Mike told me he was holding the order until I measured. I didn't tell him I needed to measure anything ... grrrr. Anyway, he said he'll call the factory tomorrow and see if they have any already made up. I just get these varnished with a medium glaze instead of staining them. Gives them an oak look. I'm just going to put it in the foyer - it won't match anything else in the area, but I need something there and I'll be able to use it (when I get back into a house) in my sewing room as it will match the others. I've got boxes of books in the garage that I want to unpack.

That's it for me today. Leftovers again. I cooked way too much shredded beef this weekend! LOL!

You made my mouth wayer as I read the title of your post before the picture came through - the quilt is delicious too :o) In the UK we have a dessert called 'Black Forest Gateau' made from very rich dark chocolate cake, black cherries in liqueur and fresh whipped cream all layered into a cake. Being a 'pud-o-holic' this is what sprang to mind

I just love the colours in that quilt top too! I understand why you bought the strips. Beautiful! I can hardly wait to try your beef recipie. Perhaps this weekend.

Shredded beef. Yum! I wish I had the drive to be a better cook. I like that quilt. I have seen so many with neat pink/red and brown combos that I am going to have to try it. Nine skunkings in one summer! Wow! At least she is small and easy to wash. I think the difference with the porcupine is that they hurt! But we'll see. I seriously think they hurt more coming out than going in.

PS- GAQF, the home store for possibilities, is the closest quilt shop to my home!

It does look like "Chocolate Covered Cherries"

Put some of that beef up in the freezer. I recently did that with some leftover beef and chicken and opened a can of Castleberry pork and made us a big pot of Brunswick stew. Easy cooking when I wanted to sew.

I made a version of this quilt too - in Pink and Brown and gave it to my sister-in-law.
