I have a collection of Swell fabric by Moda that has been aging in my quilt closet….I would say about 3 years of aging….the plan then was to redo my laundry room incorporating the fabric. The time has come!! I made two of these runners to go on top of the washer and dryer..some buttonholing left to do on the flowers and leaves. Next step curtains, a valance for a shelf, and some kind of runner for the top of the cupboard. I just love it when a plan comes together!!
We had a two day getaway to San Luis Obispo to attend a retirement party for a close friend and his wife. Such a fun event, connecting with old friends and welcoming another couple in to our growing group of retirees….YIPEEE……this means more people to play with. The car ride there and back was just enough time for me to get the binding on my girls quilt…my January finish!! I have a visit planned in a couple weeks, so I will be delivering it to her in person.
Tonight the Grammy’s are are on (I’m watching as I type in fact). I love, love the Grammy’s . In my head I am quite the singer…if only you could hear. But unfortunately in real life the sound is not so good…too bad :-)!!! While watching I finished putting this little topper together. The blocks were done, so it was just a matter of adding the sashings and corner squares…easy!
I tried a new recipe tonight for pulled pork……so EASY and quite tasty. You put a 3lb. pork loin roast (seasoned) in the crock pot with 14 ounces of beef broth and cook for about 8 hours on low. Take meat out and shred, put in a cast iron skillet and mix with 18 ounces of your favorite barbeque sauce (this is to taste you might want to add a bit more). Bake in oven at 350 for 30 minutes. I served it on onion buns, with cole slaw….YUMMO!
This is a week full of quilty get togethers….breakfast tomorrow morning with my friends, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings friendship group get togethers and Saturday a soup and sew day….I’m thinking housework will have to wait this week because I’m going to be PLAYING!!!!! Happy week everyone!
