Cobbler Gathering..

i have been working/playing in the yard
so not much hooking time,
but its coming along!

it is a kit i had ordered from
the old tattered flag
sometimes its nice to not have to color plan..
altho the colors are just a bit
bright for me so i may
spray with walnut crystal spray..

last Wednesday we had our cobbler gathering
in the woods at Auntie Marys/Uncle Doodles (Doug) Cabin

the cobblers were waiting 
while mom and i were on our way

we are here cobblers!

lots of munchies..

simply beautiful table setting using Aunties 
tea towels..

always great food.
auntie Mary made a huge salad, 
Joyce brought garden fresh baked potatoes
sister Jana made a yummy chicken tater-tot casserole
(Molly Yehs recipe, she lives near by)
there may have been bread there too...

it was cool/windy so we did not go 
for a pontoon ride on the lake.
some show and tell.
Auntie Mary started a new project.
she had also crocheted a prayer shawl but..
i didn't get a good picture of it.

then she showed us a bit of a new process
she was doing with her tea towels
amazing for sure!

ready for the dye bath!

of course lots of chit chat!

Carol brought pictures of her/daughter 
from a few years ago. 
what a beauty Carol 
and Shell is just a cute as an adult!

she had found me some vintage 
mini Tupperware salt/peppers
at a sale! thank you Carol!

i showed the wool ornaments
by butternut basin 
i have been working on to have 
on hand for the holidays..

i had asked mom to pick out a 
2" stitchery from 
Itty Bitty Celebrations
 by Lisa Bongean.
mom showed Jana and she said..
have her make the sheep 
with all those French knots. Ha Ha!
mom picked the kitty
so.. i made sister the sheep! 
it was quite funny, ya had to be there..

Carol P finished this diamond dot
that she had given me for my birthday!
Love it and the colors are so pretty in person!!
thank you Carol P!

 time for dessert!
Carol had made a lemon/cream chz/coolwhip dessert
and mom brought a rhubarb/cream chz/custard dessert
Yum! Yum! Yum!

then time to go, there were so many deer!
im glad we left before dark!

uncle Doodles (moms brother)
 arrived home soon after we left!
sorry we missed you!

enjoy your august days my blog friends..             jody


  1. As hot and humid as it is here in Delaware it looks strange to see Uncle Doodles in a sweat shirt. And even stranger to see Christmas items being made, yet it is already August and December is right around the corner. The desserts looks great and think I gained a pound just staring at them.

  2. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I WANT TO BE A COBBLER!!! What fun ;-)
    Auntie Mary's tea towels are amazing. I've not seen anything like that before and I am totally blown away. She should give you a tutorial to post...not that I would ever do!
