Comfort Food

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.

Weekend Stitching – February 8 & 9, 2020

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!

Finally Friday – 2/7/2020

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.

January 2020 Finishes for Fabric Cafe

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!

February 2020 – UFO and OMG

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.
