I love salads

I have had people ask me about how I make salads. This
is the one I have been eating almost everyday fora month!!!
I buy the Artisan letter in a big cube shaped plastic box
with 4 heads of the crispiest lettuce ever. I love it.

I always add green onions, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, almonds, avocados and chicken.

Sam's had a huge back of Tyson frozen chicken strips already
grilled. Yummy.

My favorite salad dressing is Paul Newman Lite Balsamic Vinegrette.

One reason i put the almonds in it and the avocados, besides the fact that I like them, is
that I have low magnesium. It helps.

Barb sent me this beautiful Mini Quilt for Fall. I absolutely love it and
gave ut a okace if gibir ib tge tio if my desk where ut see ut

Fabric Pumpkins

I love Fall and especially pumpkins.
Friend Mia made some fabric pumpkins and I tried to
make some using her tutorial. Notice I said tried. She is a much better seamstress than I am and so talented. Anyway, my twine was too thick and it just didn't suit me.
I also couldn't see to thread the needle, so husband George jumped in and ordered me a "miner's" type visor with a magnifying lenses and light attached and a magnifying lamp and a lighted magnifying glass.

Meanwhile I started researching tutorials onlin for fabric pumpkins and found tons.
Then, I found the perfect one for me.

Now, I can't stop making them.

New bag cut out for Eldona

Friend Linda wanted me to make a bag for her very dear friend Eldona who was my next
door neighbor when I was growing up.
She is 95 and likes a small bag. She wanted a zipper closure and since I didn't have a pattern,
I wasmaking it up as I went along.
Then, after I made the zipper casing, I realized it was too thick to fir
on the inside, so I  decided to attach it to the outside.
I really like the way it created a little cuff.
