if only...

....I could be near a cool ocean breeze right now....that would be Heaven! Instead, I'm just pretending to be... as I stitch along with my fellow Sail Away pals...



I am actually further along right now than these pics show, but just haven't busted out the camera yet to get pics...



If you haven't guessed by now, this is Sail Away, a kit from Shepherd's Bush. To say I'm lovin' it would be an understatement!



Something else we've loved recently is a tomato pie recipe I found here, it is truly yummy, and just like she says, it's better served cold, so after I made this one and it cooled off, it went straight to the fridge and we ate it the next day...



Once again (this is our second pie), it was consumed before a picture could be taken of the baked pie, so you'll just have to look at the vanilla sugar blog to check out what the final product looks like! It's so awesome! Fresh Texas grown tomatoes, bacon, cheddar cheese, how could you go wrong?! Make it! (My pie crust looks so pitiful in this picture, it's a homemade one and doesn't look perfect, but it's the best!You can find the recipe to it in my sidebar.)

Thanks for visiting! Stay cool y'all!

Okay I don't make my own pie crusts, LOL, but I am definitely going to make this pie with pillsbury pie crusts :-).

Love your Sail Away, I desperately need to get started on this one.

Sail Away is such a beautiful design, and your stitching does it justice Andrea! I always enjoy reading about and looking at what project you are working on. Thanks for the heads up on the recipe. It sounds very yum!

Your Sail Away looks soooo nice, Andrea! You're making great progress. The recipe--omg. Looks fabulous. Just look at those tomatoes! I miss those nice, ripe tomatoes you get in the US. Yumm.

Hello Andrea
Sure is a pretty pattern you are stitching. ; ) We are finally having a bit of cooler weather ourselves but having said that I am also sorry as I think Autumn is already on our doorstep. Thanks for the recipe link to that pie. I am definately going to try that one. Looks real yummy. I thought you would enjoy those knickers in my last post. : )))I could not stop laughing when I saw them and even considered getting a pair till I saw the price tag. If push comes to shove I can always write that on a pair of white knickers and parade around with. Ok, I don't think so but I could right?
: )))
Hugs

Your Sail Aways i coming along nicely - the beach sounds like a wonderful idea!

Yum, the pie sounds and looks really good. I am going to have to try this. I'll stop by our Farmer's Market on Saturday and pick up some fresh tomatoes to use.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Your SB looks wonderful :)

Thank you so much for the recipe! I was looking out the kitchen window this morning and wondering what in the world I was going to do with all of the bright red tomatoes that I could see out in the garden that desperately need to be picked. I'm going to give this pie a try!!

Sail away looks great. I've seen so many of the WIPs from your SAL and it's tempting me!
