Sewing and Soup

Baking/cooking, quilts

A lot of times when I really get into a whole sewing day — when I know I will be hopping from one project to the next I like to put  soup/stew/chili in the crock pot and not have to stop late in the afternoon to figure out what to cook.

Karen over at Sew Many Ways has a link up of soup recipes.  I haven’t looked through all of them but I plan to over the next few days.  I am picky about my soup and stews and there are just some root veggies I won’t eat – like turnips and stuff like that.  A lot of great ideas I am sure!

I got done with the second corner of Common Bride.   Half done with this big square – then on to all those star blocks – that will take awhile and I will most likely take a break from this quilt top when I get done with this center block and work on something else for awhile.


The other corner that is finished:


I find applique so calming!


(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Fantastic~it’s one thing to see a picture of a quilt, but to see it actually being made, brought to “life” ~ wonderful!

    You are moving right along. I love watching your progress on your hand pieced and quilted projects.

    I got a lesson in hand applique last week….oh yeah, you can imagine me doing this? I think I am never going to be able to get my fingers into making small stitches…I think Helen agrees with me…but at least I learned to baste .
    Soups are what I make when I have lots of left over veggies. I must agree with you about turnips etc, but I use my food processor to make soups kind of creamy.

    I had to laugh at that last sentence. Applique …. calming??? I wish that were so for me. I think some serious practice would be needed for that to happen for me. lol Thanks for the link to the soup recipes. I love soup and it has finally gotten much cooler here so I am just about ready for some soup. (PS: My Mike loves turnips even straight up; I have to have mine mixed with mashed potatoes or in soups or stews to be able to eat them. Does your Mike like them?)

    With the warmer weather starting, I’ve put away my crockpot, it does make it easier just to have everything cooking away and not have to think about meals at the end of the day, I shall miss it.

    You are making great progress on your Common Bride, it is looking quite lovely.

    Your quilt is really looking great. I know what you mean about crock pot and soup cooking at this time of year. Just made a pot of soup yesterday (veg. with chicken broth base). Will check out those recipes myself – thanks for the link!
