I have made a few more Flowering Snowball blocks for the quilt I am making for Eva's Big Girl Bed. Aren't those blocks cool? I love the effect those wild Kaffe Fassett fabrics make. The blocks take very little time to make, maybe 15 minutes or so for each one. I sat down for an hour or so on Saturday while the family was off on a hike and I think I made five or six blocks.
Don't you wish you lived at my house? I have half finished quilts draped over every available surface. You see my Antique Stars quilt, and I have been feeling very bad that I stopped half way along with assembling the rows. Not very exciting sewing, sewing rows. However, it is my favorite quilt of 2014, so I seriously need to finish it before the end of the year. So yesterday I got back to it, and was going along great, until I discovered I forgot my own cardinal rule about making sure the lattice strips lined up.
Uh huh. It definitely took longer to un-sew that row than it did to sew it. Dumb.
Saw Grandpa Larry yesterday for his birthday. He is entering his 94th year, so he says he's 94. A lady named Peggy who also lives in the Memory Care Facility has taken a shine to him and accompanies him everywhere. And you know something? She has an uncanny resemblance to his deceased wife. It is very strange, I am telling you. No wonder he told my husband "Mother is here". Oh, well, I say take your friends where you can.
Oh, and by popular demand, here's that Pot Roast recipe--I am putting it down by memory, not copying it from the Joy of Cooking edition that I have. It is so simple and makes your house smell so good while it's cooking complete strangers will be knocking at your door to see what's cooking
