Last week FLEW by! I didn't complete each of the items on last week's Tuesday To-Do list, but I did make progress.
❧ Finish "Papa's T-shirts" baby quilt - I will be sandwiching and quilting tomorrow
❧ Apply fusible stabilizer to the t-shirts for the graduation gift and begin the layout of the quilt top. I have a story about the stabilizer...
❧ Oh, and I have a pattern test Still testing, but I should have the top pieced by the end of today
❧ If I have time... I would like to "harvest" the graphics of the third set of t-shirts and get the fusible stabilizer applied to these as well. Again... the story about the stabilizer.
We enjoyed our time away. We had a very productive afternoon of shopping and picking up the necessary supplies to continue operations in the studio and Dave's shop and made a quick stop at our oldest daughter's house for a selfie since "we were in the neighborhood". We snapped the picture, sent it to her in a text message, and then headed to our campsite to set up house for a few days.
Suffice it to say she thinks we are weird because we didn't let her know we were there. The conversation on facebook was hilarious!
We took a looooooooooooong bike ride on the path from Pueblo Lake State Park to downtown - 20 miles round-trip - the next day.
We enjoyed lunch at the Ale house on the patio and relaxed in the shade before returning. The last two miles at a slight up hill grade was totally against our personal rules of biking... always go uphill first... meaning that the downhill grade is the last of our trip.
However, I am proud to say that neither of us walked the hill. Woohoo!
The next day we were a bit saddle sore, but enjoyed a leisurely walk around the campground before heading home.
Home... where we found two packages sitting on our porch. One I had expected, the other was not anything I ordered. But neither of them were the fusible stabilizer I had been waiting on.
I could go on and on about how I order the stabilizer from amazon, yet it comes from walmart.com... but I won't go down that rabbit trail. lol!
There was indeed a box from walmart with a sticker on it from FedEx stating that the contents of the package had been damaged, but were contained in the box. It was a gallon jug of molasses for plants (used in hydroponic growing systems). The jug had leaked and was placed in a few plastic bags and sealed up.
Great... now I have to try to track down my stabilizer! But I didn't have time that afternoon... just as well, because a few hours later FedEx arrived again and delivered a box from wallyworld with my stabilizer, undamaged and unharmed. Whew!
I still don't know why we got the molasses... who cares? It went out with the trash on Monday.
All is well and I am headed to my studio to continue with last week's overly ambitious list. I might have had all of the tasks complete if we had stayed home... but what fun would THAT have been?
But quickly, before I run off here is what I happen to have in the crockpot... You will notice that I made a few adjustments to fall into my acceptable dietary restrictions. :)
It has been awhile since I share any No Guilt::Go Quilt recipes.
Do you have any favorite go to recipes that free up time for you to quilt?
Please share! I'd love to have a few more to add to my collection.
