When I'm in the kitchen ...

I'm a very tidy cook.  Look
This is what my worktop looks like when I'm making soup.  See how tidy everything is NOT!! I just hope my Very Special Visitors appreciate what I've been going through to prepare for their visit this weekend.

Meanwhile, I've just popped over to visit Lovely Lynn, here and she's just made me green with envy.  You remember I told you that I was planning to make her Heartfire pattern, using Midwinter Red fabrics I bought when I was with her?  Well, being clever (haha) I thought it would be fun to applique a flower in the centre of the blocks but, since I am new to this, it is taking me for.e.ver to prepare my flowers.  Meanwhile Lynn has already got at least three-quarters of her blocks finished from the look of it, and they are just gorgeous. Here's a photo I've just stolen from Lynn's blog, without her permission.
I hope she doesn't mind, but if you want to see more of her blocks, you'll have to go over to her place.  Go ahead, I'll wait while you pop over there.  See why I am jealous?  I can't wait to start mine.


  1. You never need my permission Sue! These blocks are addictive and I couldn't stop making them. What time is dinner this weekend? I'd love to join you. I'll be there in spirit.

  2. you should see my kitchen when I make soup that needs to be blended LOL - you are super neat compared to me at that time.

  3. Is this a friendly little competition between you and Lynn?....LOL! Can't wait to see your version of the quilt.

  4. You think YOU have problems! I've just come in from burning every imaginable credit card app, old bill, old checkbook, old bank statements and receipts & did I mention credit card apps that comes not only for us but for nearly all my children who no longer live here! Smell smoke???? That's me...or is it the brownies in the oven??????
    Soup? What kinda soup??? I just may need some for my smoke inhalation?!?!?!

  5. Being messy, I think, means you are a great cook!!!
    Are you going to hand applique your flowers or by machine? Take care and have a great weekend and say hello to that "very special friend", from me.

  6. Looks like you are going to be busy with those blocks! Don't worry about a messy kitchen...isn't that the sign of a good cook? Enjoy your weekend!

  7. I'm the same in the kitchen - messy!
    Your friend block is nice. All the prep you're doing on the red flowers will be worth it soon!

  8. YOu are just as creative in the kitchen as the sewing room? HA!!!

  9. Hee....looks a lot tidier than when I cook, Sue! I'm sure it was wonderful soup, too! I am totally jelaous of both you and Lynn making Heartfire from Midwinter Reds! Let's see...I have a birthday coming up and I can always use some fabric ;>)
