Sticking to my self-imposed goal of finishing one Puffy Fours Pin Cushion each week since the start of shut-down orders here in New York State, I completed another pin cushion, in pink, orange, and gray, shown in front of the pack.
To follow from the beginning or to make your own, go to the Winging It blog, and scroll down a little bit to the March 5 post, and the Puffy Fours 1, 2, 3, and 4 details.
On Friday, May 8th, something very ordinary and, at the same time, extraordinary happened in my neighborhood.
We had donuts delivered to our door. Someone in the neighborhood put a post up on the neighborhood facebook page to see if there was enough interest to have the Glazed and Confused Donut Truck make a delivery to the neighborhood.
To get the truck to come to our area, we needed to have a minimum order to secure the delivery, which happened within minutes of the post going up.
Pardon my French Toast (shown) was perhaps one of my favorites from the box of twelve we ordered, but they were ALL good!
And I have to say I'm not much of a donut person on any given day.
It goes back to appreciating those simple things - like finding paper products in the grocery store - that have come to be so much more than a simple thing.
As it turns out, we've got a parade of food trucks, about one per week for the next few weeks headed our way. Specialty pizza is tomorrow night. I am so excited that I don't have to cook, I'm beside myself!

I wish that I could say that this hot chocolate-themed project using the Stitchery Crossover technique is out of season for May.
But lately, hot chocolate could be the beverage of choice to scare away the chill.
With the hand work part of this project all done, I'm taking a little extra time to add some fairly fussy machine quilting. I'm enjoying letting this one come together in its own time.
For those waiting patiently for the Stitchery Crossover instructions to get started, I'm with you! I'm very excited about what's coming, but I'm running into a couple of snags on the technical side of things. Thanks for your patience!
I can't wait to get started, and I'm busy tackling a few technology monsters before things can get underway. Thanks for your patience! For more info and to add your name to the interest list for this new technique to combine counted stitchery with quilting CLICK HERE.
