Happy Thursday, friends! Hope your week is going well. We enjoyed the trip to Arizona to spend some time with my mom, and I'm also happy to be home again! On the last day we were there, it rained.
I liked this view of Mom's front yard. She has the typical Arizona landscaping with a dry wash river running through it, which fills up with water when it rains.
While we were there, one night my mom served us these butternut squash noodles and they were really good! They're found in the frozen veggies department at the grocery store and you cook them in the microwave.
We're having them at our house tonight.
I enjoyed doing a little stash enhancement while we were on our trip. I decided my stash needed some reds, and found these.
And I have an idea for using them already, of course! Did you see that Patty of Elm Street Quilts and Kristin of Simple.Handmade.Everyday are having a new Hand-pieced QAL? It's starting next week, and I'm thinking I'll participate again this year since I enjoyed it so much last year. Looks like I'll be making a red and white quilt this time!
for Patty's post about the QAL.
Unfortunately, when we got home, our car wouldn't start. It wasn't unexpected because it had been having problems off and on for awhile. This time it was dead as a doornail! So, this happened.
I don't like that it had to be towed to the shop,
but I do like that our insurance covered it! 👍
And now it is fixed and working just fine, hooray!
And before I finish, I have to share my weekly embroidery from up through Tuesday evening. We're working on the top part now.
Love this! Hope I can get all the wrinkles out
when it's time to finish this up, lol!
