on a sunny Wednesday. I've been playing the 'fool's pup' today, getting very little done and having a good time doing it *VBS* Accomplishments? A shower, one load of laundry, some pieces cut to size, a few more than a few, sewn. Oh, and I made a kettle of a chunky turkey hot dish. Yup, we call it "hot dish" here in WI also. I browned a sweet, mild onion in EVOO, add part of a pound of fresh ground turkey from our famous Turkey Store. When the turkey lost it's pink, I chopped in several stalks of celery, and one medium zuchinni...large chunks on both. At that point you could add almost anything you wanted to, but I opted for a can(just one cause there IS only me after all) of diced tomatoes. Stirred it well, and let it simmer til the veggies were tender but chewy. I then added about a cup(give or take)of frozen cooked rice from the freezer. Once it was thawed and stirred in, it took up the small amount of juice from those tomatoes. I had a very late lunch....about 3:15 to be exact, and am ready to pronounce the "hot dish" as tasty and filling without being fattening.And there you have it. Even with that modest amount of raw materials, I'll be eating this for about 6 meals! Don't know if it would freeze or not.And I've been thinking about a baby quilt for the new little grandchild coming in mid July. I've had this 'one' started for a couple of years now. I loved making the 16 patch center...didn't love how putzy it is to add the squares to the top and bottom pieces and have them match up. Another 3 or 4 blocks and I'll have a 3 X 4 set...that should do the trick for Grandson #11???????
And I've been thinking alot about doll quilts again. Maybe we are all having way too much fun making these little quilts, but why not??? I love them, and was thinking about this particular picture in the Little Quilts book.
Way back when I had decided to I really wanted to make this one in particular. I think I have enough repro pinks now that I can manage it. And thanks to my friend Vera, at KC Quilter, I also have a nice selection of indigo blues *VBS*
A wee bit of progress today!
