Well, here I am, finally getting back to at least twice a week posting. You can blame Esther Aliu for this. She has started a WIP Wednesday on her blog. So I decided that if I want to be a part of things I need to get back to Wednesday blogging.
I have been somewhat busy. I got a backing sewn for my JR quilt and got it all on the frame yesterday.
That's as far as I got but Friday I will decide on the thread and pattern and maybe even start the quilting. It should go fast and then it can travel with us next weekend.
I also finally cut the white squares to fit in with the 16 patch leftovers for a comfort quilt. I have the top two rows sewn, not together, and plan to finish the rest this weekend. Right now it is only 36x48 so it will need a couple of borders before I can call it finished.
And I did something that is unusual for me. I cooked. This is not my creative bent but my DIL posted what she was making for dinner and it sounded good to me. I changed it a little to fit my Weight Watcher’s points (and what I had on hand) and look how my Ange’s Oven Fried Chicken turned out:
Isn’t that beautiful? I must say that those chicken breasts were huge so we split one, and look how I packaged the other:
I wanted to remember where I got the recipe when I find it again in the freezer.
Today was my last day to lead one of my WW meetings and I am feeling a little down. I hate closing a meeting when there are still some people who want to continue but we just don’t have enough to keep going. I also feel I am loosing friends who are helping me as much as I am helping them. But they have the tools and a list of other, further away, meetings where they can continue so we are all moving on.
