In addition to working on that piece, I decided to sit down with my rotary cutter and get as much done that I could handle. I don't have a table I can cut on so I sit on the floor. It gets old, as you can imagine. One day when I have a studio space I will have a table dedicated to only cutting.
One project that I haven't talked about before is for a sewing machine cover. I currently use the hard plastic top from the carrier I have. I hate using it because it's boring and bulky. My design for my first fabric cover is going to involve hexagons and embroidery. I haven't made any progress on it because I didn't have any fabric cut out. Now I do and can get working on it.
I also cut the prints for my Drunkard's Path quilt. I will have 20 mega blocks that are made up with 16 drunkard's path blocks. For the prints, if you remember, I am using pre-cut charms, so that reduced cutting time. My next step is cutting into my solid so I can get started. The fabric is pressed and hanging over my sewing chair so I will get to it sooner rather than later.
I have a short three day week at school and work and then Chad and I will be going out of town to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family. I got a call from his sister last night asking if I would make a few things for dinner: the bread, a pie, and possibly a salad of some sort. I'm a vegetarian so I will probably make a pasta salad for myself and to share. The pie I am undecided on. I was going to make a chocolate one, because that is Chad's favorite and he has been asking for one recently, but his mom is already making that. Last year I did make a chocolate and a lemon meringue, but I'm leaning towards pecan this year. And the bread? Chad wants my cheddar beer bread (only made with Blue Moon though) and I'm not sure if that's a turkey friendly bread. I'm thinking of making a loaf of it and rolls as well. Good thing I love being in the kitchen.
I'm mostly excited for this long weekend because I will be able to spend it working on projects. I did a deep clean of the house this past weekend before it snows a lot. We did get a mini storm last Friday, but it has melted already.
Happy Monday to you all!
