I recently got three quilts back from my quilter, and now my world is Bindings. I live on the planet of Bindings. I need to get two baby quilts bound by Saturday. Sara has been waiting for her Log Cabin quilt for so long, I feel as if I have to get her quilt to her as soon as possible. So every minute I have during daylight hours, I am sewing bindings. Three quilts = miles of binding.
My husband went back to work yesterday, and reports that the company seems well run, and that he thinks he will be happy there. As a former admin, I was glad to hear that his office space was perfectly set up, equipment all working and supplies all in order. Only a good admin would be behind that, so hopefully he will have lots of competent back up to assist him as he finds his way in this new job. People don't always realize how important it is to have intelligent and efficient back up staff. Well, those who experience it sure miss it when it is gone! It always made me proud to make my boss look good and to make sure all his/her ducks were in a row before an important meeting or event.
Eva and I had fun in the kitchen yesterday. She wanted to "cook", so I let her mix up just about the entire contents of the pantry for her cooking project. She had vinegar and baking soda (whew, it sure did foam and bubble), sprinkles, cocoa, paprika, coconut, raisins, bow tie pasta, breakfast cereal, jasmine rice...Seriously, everything in the pantry. The lesson was, as much fun as it was to throw things together, the result tasted like crap. Today we are going to follow a recipe for sugar cookies and see what a difference following directions can make.
