I got some hearts appliqued. I finished off one of my spools of silk thread. I had stopped last week and purchased a similar blender color but.... I decided to check my guitterman supply for purple. I found 3 spools - one was too light but the other 2 worked. After working with the silk for applique... I have to say I think I prefer the cotton. It just seemed to work better on the needle turn for me today. Not perfect (as nothing I ever do is!) but I am down to 4 hearts left to stitch. These got added to the finished pile today.
Now to prep dinner and get it in the oven. Not the best for a hot day.... but it's what I took out so I'm going with it. Chuck roast (cream of mushroom soup and an onion soup mix) over carrots, potato, onion and I might throw some mushrooms in.
