Saturday in bright or light green....

First off - I purchased some mushrooms earlier this week (2 - 8ounce packages of small cremini) to make a recipe I found last Saturday night. We had gone to Sweet Tomato's for dinner after work and I loved the corn chowder - two cups later I had to try and find the recipe. Now... I had changed my schedule last year to work on Mondays..... because that was the only day they had Cream of Mushroom soup! Oh my, it is good. I could not find the corn chowder recipe (although there is a good one from The Pioneer Woman I have made) but... I found the Mushroom soup recipe. I made a half batch Friday night..... pure heaven!  It really was ready to eat in under 30 minutes too! I know what I am having for lunch at work today - yummy cream of mushroom soup. Ok, the secret is out... I love soup. I know, I know,.....you live in Florida and love soup. Very strange but that is just me =)

Ok - back to fabric. Since Angela was so nice to post the first sampler block on the 1st I was able to make it up last night after pulling some bright batiks out of a scrap basket. These were leftover from my niece Jillian's quilt last year. Good memories.


Now to find more to make my normal monthly blocks (hexagon flowers, churn dashes, 16 patch). Since it is a version of green this month... I hope to get the green and cream crossroads quilt quilted and bound this month. I made that on the emerald green month and would love to get it finished off.

What are your plans for the month?


Head on over to SoScrappy and see what other green projects are being started this month. If you are interested, I finished off the red and blue star quilt earlier this week and you can see the finished quilt here.

  2. I love soups, too. They aren't just a cold weather food here at Chez Nana. ;-) I need to try out that cream of mushroom soup recipe.

  3. So fun to plan your work schedule around the soup rotation! We have a place next to the fabric shop with fabulous tomato basil soup and I always try to go around lunch time when I run out of something. Love your lime greens so far. Memories are the best part of using up scraps.

  4. Soup is comfort food and there is no wrong season for that! Some of my favourites are Italian Wedding Soup and Dill Pickle Soup. I find myself reflecting back on quilts made with left over bits. Can't help but smile as I remember. Lovely mini bowties. Looking forward to seeing Crossroads all done.

  5. You can't go wrong with soup anytime, especially if it is made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Great start on August with your bow ties.

  6. Beautiful fabrics for your bow ties. I just packed away the green from a couple of months ago, but at least it's sorted now!

  16. Love, love homemade soup!! When I was a child my Mother ALWAYS had a big pot of soup going on the stove ready to eat. She had nine kids that she had to keep fed and there was no going out for a bite to eat!
