My Tatted Lace Candy Corn doily, and soup

I didn't have much to go and loved the way the Josephine knots made the chains uneven but needed to be contained with organized rings and chains I started this way back in august 2013 

At time my husband made some fish and we sold sold some on eBay, we haven't made any for a while. Here scroll down one page to see how close to done I was.

Here is a great Mexican soup recipe I made up it is easy but need the ingredients, that my not have at on hand.

  •  One large family size can of tomato soup
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cubed cheese (any kind I used colby-jack cubes) 
  • can black beans 15.5oz
  • 2 small avocados cubed
  • about 2 cups chopped cooked roast beef or chicken meat ( I normally use beef)
  • enchilada sauce one small can I prefer red color and medium hot (This picture is green sauce)
  • one to two cups corn
  • toasted corn chips for garnish on top
  • can add chopped black olives if desired.
  • Mix all ingredients (except cheese) in 4 quart or 3.7 liter pot, and the soup with the 1/2 can of water, bring to boil and stop and add cheese simmer 2 mins.  Garnish with toasted chips. 
  • The cheese doesn't melt together even when warmed up later on, the tomato keeps it separated.   

mixing in one pot

frozen corn but can add canned corn
I love this soup and even though it is summertime I still crave it. May favorite is with Beef cubes from  Sunday roast :)
I toast in oven at 350 fir 5 mins I think :)


  1. Your doily is gorgeous!!! :) I love the color combination!!! :)

  2. Your doily has beautiful colors, I love all shades of blue and turquoise. Amazing shuttles, where are you discover this wood fishes ?

    1. My husband works with wood. I ask him to make me some when I saw some like it on the internet. I made him make more place with a grove for more thread.

    2. :) Your husband is very creative and good man :) I see this idea at the first time.
      I wish that my man is programmer :P

  3. Nice soup! Great to have the doily finished, well done. It's a shame to leave it so nearly finished.

    1. I don't know why but I do that more than I should.

  4. The doily is lovely, love your colour combination.
    Love the fishes, your wood shuttles are so lovely to handle.
    Your soup looks delicious unfortunately I can't eat spicy food.
    Have a nice day, we are having a heatwave this week, it's just too hot to do anything

    1. We had heat last week and now it is much cooler maybe why I made the soup :)

  5. I like so much these colors! Thank you for the recipe!
