As promised, an update for Wednesday… well, it’s Wednesday for 20 more minutes.
So, first, let me wish you a safe and healthy Thanksgiving tomorrow! (If you’re in the U.S.) Our county is surging with new Covid cases and we are having dinner at home with just my brother and two daughters. My brother recently discovered the Great British Bake Off so we’re planning a marathon while cooking… truly a “cooking marathon!”
This happened today…I quilted my first quilt on the longarm! Of course, there were a few technical problems I couldn’t find addressed in any manual…
But we finally got past all that and I quilted a small quilt! This was a cheery little top that I bought for $2 at a thrift store in a way before Covid world. You get a glimpse of it in this quick video.
I’m hoping to bind this quilt on Friday so I can get it off to the donor program.
In the meantime, I’m tackling a new dessert tomorrow…. peach cobbler. When I asked my brother if he wanted a crumb top or a more cake-y top he said, “No, it has to have a lattice like Dad made them.” I had to remind him that since I was only 6 when Dad passed, I have no memories of peach cobbler. I grew up with frozen peach pies… which I quite loved, thank you.
So, new adventure in baking tomorrow. Luckily I’m planning to cook the turkey in the grill so I have the oven to myself all day.
In the midst of all this, I’m so grateful for all my friends and family who show up in amazing ways even at a distance. And, if Thanksgiving isn’t your thing… then remember that the truly important thing on Black Friday is that Bonnie Hunter will release the first clue in this year’s mystery quilt!
And, I thought you might get a laugh out of Gizmo and the new “hammock”! I think this will be an ongoing “technical issue. “
