I was cleaning up the sewing table to be ready to machine quilt a quilt tomorrow and found this little embroidery piece I need to hang up. He is a cutie!

Okay not real glass but a stained glass quilt that finally was finished. The binding had been sewn on long ago but blind stitching the sleeve down was another story. It has been done now and another quilt UFO has been cleared.
Only down side is when I washed it, some of the hand dyed fabrics bled a bit. And I did not notice this until I went to photograph it. I plan to rewash it again in cold water just like the first time and hope that some of the bleeding gets lighter. But it is fine as it is.
With the heat hitting the East Coast, I have been trying to stay cool even with eating. So here are two recipes/suggestions or salads that are easy to make and keep really well in the refrigerator as well. But both are great at room temperature too.
The first one is more of a suggestion on amounts since it is a flexible and adjustable type of recipe.
Cleaning up the studio aka the fabric/fiber/yarn room has meant finding some surprises like quilts only needing a few hours of work to finish them off. This one was partially quilted but it now is ovr in the finished pile. I call it the poison berry quilt since well I am allergic to them. This is a simple utility quilt that salvaged blocks from a tote bag. Not sure where this one will end up finding a home at yet but come the cold days of winter it will be loved
