More Arcs for Pickled Ladies

I realized that it’s the middle of the month and no new Pickled Ladies have been stitched, so last night I put together some arcs for another dozen or so of them. They go together quickly and it’s even faster to add them to the clamshells, so I’m hoping to get these all stitched today.

Monday I met up with another Inklingo’er, who is here with her husband.  We had a prime spot in front of the fireplace in the lobby of the hotel at which they’re staying and stitched and talked our way through a good part of the day.  Today will be more of the same.  Monday I worked on the triangle bands for another Farmer’s Delight block, but today it will be the Pickled Ladies.  I’m behind again on replying to comments and visiting blogs, but will catch up on Wednesday.

When I’m upset about something, I have a tendency to throw out things that I don’t mean to toss.   Last week, when Lester had the stroke, I apparently threw out my finger pincushion.  It’s hard to believe just how lost I was without it.  Thanks to my friend, I now have a new one.  This one is going to be very carefully taken care of and tucked away each evening after I finish stitching so that there’s no chance of it getting tossed out!

Lester is definitely on the mend.  Monday night he was spilling out of the kitty bed as he stretched and then slept in this position.

An hour or so later and Smudge had taken over the kitty bed.

  1. Oh what a pretty pretty finger pincushion and by golly you’re so nice and swift with those arc’s. 🙂 Sounds like you had some nice time with your friend… and in front of a fireplace, too. That’s the way to do it in Canada, ha?

    I am so, so happy to see this photo of Lester. He sure did take us for a scare and its’ so nice to see him back to his regular Lion self!!! …and Smudge taking the spot, too. Silly Pasha Puss.


  2. How fun to sit and sew with a friend all day. I bet you had ladies stopping by in the lobby checking out what you two were working on :0)

    So glad the kitties are feeling so much better!!



  3. I also missed the post re. Lester’s stroke. I’ve not been regular in my visits. I am so sorry to hear this! How scary. I hope all is okay. They are so sweet.
    Well, how special of a day you had! Just dreamy to sit snd visit with a friend while stitching in front of a fire. I have never seen a ring pin cushion! Never. What a great idea. I shall look for one.


  4. OMG – I’m so sorry – I haven’t been online for awhile and so I missed the news about Lester.

    Please take care of yourself and Mr QO, and give Lester and Smudge our purrs and best wishes.
