Life can through you a nasty curve ball now and then. We recently and suddenly lost a beloved member of the guild and a member of my bee. We are all very shocked and saddened. But knowing her, she would want us to take a deep breath, pick up a needle, sew a little and maybe bake a pie. And that is just what I’ve done this afternoon.
I finished up on Unit 10 of the Just Takes 2 project:
The paper pieced blocks took a few hours, the applique block took weeks! Ah, but the next few units have only a tiny bit of applique, so I should be able to breeze through them rather quickly.
And I baked a pie! This is the season for Parker County Peaches and we bought a big box of them last weekend. I made 32 jars of peach jam, two batches of peach crisp, ate numerous juicy peaches standing over the kitchen sink and still had some VERY ripe peaches to use. So I found Simple Peach Pie recipe on Food.com and it is cooling on the counter right now.
So, when life throws you a curve ball – look to those simple pleasures to bring you peace. As the saying goes “stop and smell the roses”.
Love and hugs to all y’all!
