SCRAPPY SPIDER IS QUILTED & A Quick Salad Idea Using Avocados. . .

Remember the Spider Web Ring that Cattinka put together a few months ago? Many of us joined the SpiderWeb fun. Thanks again, Katrin! Making the blocks was fun... and, I used up a lot of scraps that were just laying around not doing anything. lol.

Above is my little WH. It is machine quilted, but not bound yet. I'm thinking maybe a RED binding... what do you think? Also, the SpiderWeb quilting design does not cover all of the Yellow Border-- so I am thinking of embroidering a few small black spiders in the Yellow... is that a good idea, or should I leave well enough alone? Please tell me what you think. Thank you. [Sorry for the wonky picture. . . I'm not sure how it got so crooked. ;-( ]

Recently we acquired an InfraRed Gas Grill. My DD Laura is getting very good at grilling! The other night she made some Alaska Wild Samon -- while she was doing that, I created an Avocado and Tomato Salad to go with it... no dressing, just a sprinkle of some mixed herbs on the top. We had just returned from a trip to the Carlsbad Farmer's Market with fresh produce, so that dictated our ingredients. lol. It was delish. We ate all the fish before I remembered to take a pic! lol.

Until next time, I hope you have the time and inclination to create something that makes you or someone you care about happy.

I love that spider web quilt, and I think a red border would be perfect.

Hi Cyn,
I like your spider web and I think little spiders would look nice on it.

Nice job. I think the spiders would add. I like whimsical. Red binding? YES!

Little spiders romping around sounds wonderful - do you want some large ones from Orkney? (I've got some spectacular webs hanging about!!)

I agree with everyone else, and I love your Scrappy Spider, it has such movement.

The spider looks great. And I love the idea of embrodering little spider into the yellow fabric. I like also your little placemate, the fruits and vegetables are very nice. In one of your post you say, that you collect siggies, me too. What do you think about swapping one siggy with me?

Many hugs, Petruschka
