Redwork, Toile and Scones

My niece D and I are doing a project together, sort of..;-)
It is a stitchery and pieced quilt.
I am doing mine as red work (DMC 498).
Here is my first finished basket.

She is doing hers in black work (DMC 310) like the pattern below.
Will be so pretty!

She bought the pattern and her black toile fabric at the Feb quilt show.
I have enough red toile in my stash( I hope) to do mine.
I have started work on my second basket.
They do go rather quickly using one color.
We ( me) did change the flowers a bit, maybe a goodly bit,
but not the baskets or over all look ...;-)

Yesterday I got an urge for scones.
Just out of the blue!
So made a few to go with my tea!
I added Italian Blend Cheese and Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning Blend.
Just used a basic recipe then added a 1/2 tsp herb blend and maybe a 1/2 cp of the cheese.
I did not measure!
A savory scone that was yummy with butter and my cuppa Twinings Earl Grey!


  1. How nice to be doing a project with your DN. Be nice to see them both finished on your blog.

    YUMMMMMMMMMM can smell those scones all the way down under. LOL

  2. Very will be interesting to see the same project in two different colors...always amazing how they look when finished. LOVE the scones, too!!!

  3. Both quilts are going to be wonderful!

    I love the Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning! I bet it was wonderful in the scones!

  4. oooo I agree. Nothing compares with a good scone and a cup of tea. Please stop by my blog and vote for my friend :-)

  5. Won't it be fun to see both projects completed and compare them?

    The tea and scones sound wonderful!

  6. Never having a scone, I'll have to try a recipe sometime. Looks so yummy! Love your quilt work too!

  7. Love,love the redwork, Yes scones and tea the perfect match. I make lemon scones with a thin lemon glaze.. Really good,

  8. Scones....sound wonderful about now! (nearly dinner) hee!
    Fun to catch up here and see you have been a wee bit busy with the redwork. Enjoy your weekend.

  9. How frightfully English! Your stitchery quilts are going to be super! Ann :-)

  10. Now you've done it--I am hungry just thinking about those scones!!!!
    It is fun to the same project with someone else--yet using different colorways--will be waiting for more pictures--so it's time to stop eating and drinking on the job and get back to work!!!!
    Hugs, Di
