Here is a picture of a PinKeep that I drew up and made this week. Yesterday was perfect weather for it to sit out in the sun and age. I stitched it on 32 count linen and stuffed with sawdust. These are really fun to make if you haven't ever tried one. The sawdust is a little messy of a job but well worth it. My dad sure gave me a weird look when I went to his shop asking for a container full of sawdust :)
It's done....a little sampler I've been working on for awhile. It started out as the Sampler Challenge that was being put on by The Samplermakers but I didn't come close to meeting the deadline so continued on and here is how it finished. If anyone has advice on how to take pictures without a glare I would love to hear from you. Linda
I am always looking for a good crockpot receipe. I found this one and tried it out for dinner last night. Good Stuff!!!!!
1 pound lean ground beef
10 (6 inch) corn tortillas, quartered
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 1/4 cups water
1 (12 ounce) jar chunky salsa
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
4 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
1.Crumble the ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Add taco seasoning and water; simmer for 15 minutes over low heat.
2.In a medium bowl, stir together the salsa, cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soup. Mix in most of the cheese, reserving 3/4 cup for later.
3.Place a layer of tortillas covering the bottom of a slow cooker. Scoop a layer of the ground beef over that, and then spoon a layer of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layers until you run out of stuff, ending with a layer of tortillas on the top. Top with remaining cheese.
4.Cover, and cook on High for 1 1/2 hours.
So I finally finished this punch needle pattern by Threads that Bind. I've been working on it for several months. I think I will be looking for another finishing method as I really did not enjoy whipping the edges with DMC. There has to be a better way. If anyone has suggestions, let me know.
I pretty much love everything primitive. As a child I would spend hours cutting up grandma's old flour sacks and turn them into some sort of creation. I love rug hooking, stitching, reading and whatever else catches my eye. Me and my husband live on an acerage in Nebraska and have a one son.
