And some more gorgeous needlework

So, I think I must link this blog to mine as soon as possible. I am amazed at the pictures she adds to her posts- they are fabulous. 

Here is another post on "lost" needle arts. The gold work is usually available through an EGA class, and I know it shows up elsewhere at festivals and such. Not a well known technique, and only for the skilled and affluent- that gold thread gets expensive!- but another NOT lost needle art. 


Tatting- NOT a lost art

The article that you will find linked below is really interesting. The subject is "knotting" and I am not sure I agree at all with the author on some of the things she wrote. BUT..... The pictures are magnificent, so I had to share them.

So, once again I come back here and plan to post regularly. Since I doubt anyone still reads here, it will not matter. A blog is really just a diary that we share anyway.

Tonight's dinner will be my super easy version of quiche. Take a frozen deep dish pie shell- I use PetRitz when i can get them, otherwise any store brand- and fill it with a 4 oz bag of shredded Swiss cheese. Mix together 4 eggs and 1 cup of half and half, along with salt and pepper to taste. Add anything you like to the cheese in to the pie shell- i like mine plain, but lots of folks like veggies or ham or sausage or whatever else you think might taste good. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, let rest for 5 minutes, enjoy!

We are enjoying life in Florida. We visit Disney World 3-4 times a month and really love it. For my birthday last month, for example, we drove there, went to tea at the Beach Club, took a walk around the World Showcase at Epcot, and went home. It was a lovely afternoon. 

Nothing much more to post right now. I want to work on fixing up by sidebar, and get some more useful links there, just in case anyone stops by.
