I thought I better check in before you sent out a search party for me. I'm well.
This was last night's dinner. My first and last attempt at a Scotch egg. It was delicious, but quite rich. A half egg would have sufficed. You see, it's a soft boiled egg wrapped in sausage, then rolled in bread crumbs and fried. While yummy - it was quite a production. A whole lot of production for 2 lonely eggs for Bill and I.
This is a new pattern for us - it's called Polka Dot Garden. The pattern will be on our website next week. We're proof reading it right now. It's a scrap pattern. I posted this on Instagram and got quite a few questions about it. We will kit it - but it won't be for awhile. Since it takes so much light shirtings (or low volume) I need to order a whole bunch of them. It will be weeks before they get shipped to us.
Which brings me to the next topic..... Polly and I decided we will do a special event this summer. We are going to have an AMERICAN SUMMER sale!! Starting in June we will post in our Etsy store and especially on this blog - items in a Minick and Simpson style! We will have some kits - stitchery, hooking and quilting. We will have gifts! We will have special ONE OF A KIND gifts that will be auctioned and all will be variations on a theme - a RED, WHITE, and BLUE kind of theme. The Polka Dot Garden quilt will be a special pre-order kit.
So, start saving your pennies. I'll be posting lots of updates before the sale happens.
I might even have more pictures of sporting events. Bill and I will be going to a baseball game tomorrow. It's kind of fun now that he is retired.
