PHOTOS, COOKING, QUILTING






Photos above are all about an e-course I took over at  beauty that moves and it was wonderful! When making a meal I freeze some of it-in serving sizes for lunch or an easy dinner. No more,( or very little )cafeteria food for me at work, which by the way is awful!
So many great ideas, from recipes to storage and labeling.Heather did a great job and I will be taking her whole food e course next.


This cute quart is my new drinking glass. I love water!







I love my days off of work! I turn on my music (any suggestions for music will be appreciated) and get things done. Today I cleaned bathrooms, and I mean I took the bathrooms apart and cleaned all nooks and crannies. Aired out the bedrooms, yes it has been warm here in NoCo. With the windows open I can hear the birds signing and water running, (the great melt off from our last snow storm). According to Farmers Almanac we have one more BIG snow at the end of the month. 

After the cleaning, I finished putting borders on this quilt, sewed the backing together, then sandwiched it all together and did the pinning. I use a rug hooking tool to clip close all the pins. This handy dandy tool makes this rather boring job fast and easy on the fingers.
One of my borders had to many puckers in it, that I decided to take it off and re-adjust the border with 1.5" less in length. Fits perfect now. No, I did not take all the pins out to redo the border, just ripped, folded and went slowly to get it all together again. Scrap quilts with lots of piecing often pucker, with patience I can usually get everything to lay flat and even. I have had a lot of practice and not being a perfectionist helps too.

Funny thing yesterday after going to church and getting my Ashes for Lent. At work I had several people ask me if I ran into a door or if I did a face plant. Huh, I guess I forgot this is not a very Catholic community. Even my daughter at work asked if I fell,she thought the Ashes were a big bruise ;-}
Made me giggle.
