Skyros Island Schooner Sampler - Week 2

Stitching away, as time permits.

I've had to take a break from stitching many hours away.  My "to do" list was just getting way too long.

Yesterday, I spent the day baking. 7 loaves of quick breads. 3 Pumpkin/Pineapple, 2 blueberry and 2 carrot bread.  Yup even grated the carrots myself, without accidentally grating a fingernail or, finger in the process.

Been trying some new recipes, to give my mom some diversity.  She likes something sweet to eat with her morning cup of coffee. 

This week she's finishing up the last loaf from my  last baking fore. Applesauce bread. I tried to get her to give me some feedback on ones she liked better. "Oh I like them all!"  She really is a woman without an opinion.

I should just ask my kids, since they have no problem telling me about dishes/baking that they don't care for.  
But they also are gracious enough to complement their favorites.

One of my resolutions this year was not to make political comments. I intend to honor that, throughout the year. The only thing I will say, is, if where you live, hasn't held their primary yet, when they do, go vote!  Off my soap box!

With that, I will end with, happy productive stitching!


  1. Very nice progress, Pam! Enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. I did two more things off my list today. I made home made peanut clusters for my mom. I also have Holly a bath, clipped her nails, and other doggie hygiene that I do when I groom my animals. Feel so much accomplished! You have a great week too!
