A little clue!!!

I see I've peaked your curiosity with my little bunch of keys LOL. Well here are a couple of sneaky peeks so that you can see that I'm working hard on this little project .... I'm loving how it's turning out so far, the fabrics I'm using are simply delish - 'Sweet Love' by Maywood!!! Do you think you know what it might be??????
Hmmmm, a bit of stitchery, a bit of applique' .... but where are the keys???? Oh I'll be using them ... I just haven't got that far yet ;o). I have a full day of stitching ahead of me today so I'm hoping to get it finished - fingers crossed :o).
Here's a little gadget that I treated myself to last week. Isn't it sweet!!?!? I love anything wood ;o). This is perfect for me in my small sewing area ... it's got a little 'peeper hole' in the end - you know, the sort you have in the door to see who's on the other side. That way I can hold it up to my eye and see my quilt layout from a distance without having to stand far away from it!!!
Now, how clever is that!!!! One of my friends at quilting brought some along last week as her husband had made them and she was selling them ... so I pounced on this one :o).
DD2 is getting much better after her awful fall ... as you can see she's still got the brace on, she has another 3 weeks of wearing that (day and night - yuk), but it hasn't stopped her doing the things she likes. Here she is cooking dinner for us, the hand is up because the bacon (apparently) "bit" her LOL. Suspecting it spat a little - he he ... ya get that ;o).
Dinner was delicious by the way, we had Fettucini Carbonara with chicken ...... Mmmmmm, YUM!!!!!!!! ................ Thanks Bear :o)!!!
Hope you're all having a fabulous week - I'm off to do some stitching :o).

I think it looks absolutely darling - could it be a key keeper? Love your nifty little gadget.
Another 3 weeks of a brace...sigh. At least she's getting around ok!

So cute Joy. I have seen the little eye glass things at the quilt shops. They are so cool. Have fun with that.

Hello gorgeous!

Those sneak peeks look as delicious as your dinner sounded! I've just purchased some of the same fabric - it's so sweet! I can't wait to see what you've been up to!

Love to Bear! xx

yumm, dinner sounds good - am sooo hungry !!! love your little gadget, what a clever idea! wouldn't be a key keeper thingy would it?

'Sweet love' suggests keys to your heart perhaps???? Whatever it is, it looks like it's going to be very delish!!! My son loves cooking too, but usually things like chocolate brownies that he eats all by himself!!!! hehehe
havent seen the wooden thingy anywhere up here....would buy one if I saw one!!! they look great!
sugary hugs

You're sneaky peek is beautiful! And wow -- that peep hole idea is fantastic -- I'll have to suggest those to bigdaddy -- maybe he could make some for my mom and I!
