No matter where you live, the past days, weeks (months) have been like none other the majority of us have lived through. Although all three of us are in the “at-risk” categories due to age or health, we are doing ok.
Whenever there is a lot of worry or stress, it is nice to have some Comfort Food. What you call Comfort Food, I guess, depends on where you call home. For us yesterday, it was Split Pea Soup and Cornbread.
Beginning a new week and nothing much on the Calendar. Thursday is the only day with an appointment, Stitch Group & Grocery Shopping. Looks like this may be another week of stitching!
This past weekend has been productive. We had lots of leftovers for dinner, but needed some breakfast & nibbles. So Saturday morning I made Bisquick Sausage Muffins, Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (ok, these were from the freezer department in the grocery store, but I did bake them), and some Egg Muffins. Now we had breakfast for a couple of days. More free time for stitching!
It’s the end of the week, or turn it around, it’s the beginning of the weekend! I really like weeks when I get to stick around the house and don’t have a lot of running around to do. That usually means more time for cooking or sewing.
As many of my followers know, I make flimsy tops for quilts which will be displayed in the booth of Fabric Cafe at all the quilt shows they attend. Instead of “Tele-work,” I like to say I “Postal-work.” We don’t live close to each other – like nearly halfway across the country. So our work together is either via email or snail-mail. She emails me the patterns, then snail-mails me some fabric. After I make the tops/flimsies, I snail-mail them back to her. Staff at the shop makes the backing. She has a local longarm quilter that quilts them and she adds the binding as a final step. It is truly a cooperative endeavor!
I’m a bit slow this year getting organized. We’re still working on my remodel /reorganization of my sewing space. I’m making lists to help me keep it straight and bought some plastic containers to try & organize projects.
As I clean in my sewing room, I keep finding more and more that needs to be done, so I keep adding them to my lists.
