We are getting closer and closer all of the time. Closer to what? To putting all the finishing touches on the quilting space. Over the weekend, I helped Hubby assemble the quilt frame and get it placed in what is to be its new home.
The machine has been dropped off for servicing. After more than a year packed away in a box, it seemed like the best idea. So what's next?
Installing some shelving for store fabrics. We have some more of the reclaimed boards we used for the living room shelving. I am excited to see it all come together.There has been some sewing. I have been happily stitching blocks. But shame on me for not finishing up something (anything) that has been waiting undone. Quilter's ADD, I suppose.
Of course, I am still working on those hexagons. They were easy to pick up and move to another room while this
was going on yesterday. We had our duct work cleaned and the furnace serviced in anticipation of a few chilly mornings over the next couple of months.
Also preparations for Thanksgiving have begun in earnest.
I baked bread that is destined to become the stuffing for our turkey. We always use the canned cranberry sauce. Just can't resist that jellied mass of slippery, sliced sweetness. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it.
But making cranberry sauce is fun and easy, too. I picked up a bag of fresh berries and a GIANT jalapeno at the market yesterday. I'm going to try out making a spicy sauce to enjoy with chicken this week. I think it will be good and I won't have to worry that The Princess would be disappointed to find no jellied slices on our holiday table.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
