Wow, what a week! Just as it seemed things were getting back to normal in the world, it looks like we are headed back to difficult times again with the coronavirus. Fortunately, a local grocery store had their semi-annual butcher's sale this week, and I went today and stocked up for my daughter's family and ours...
I ended up with four Boston butts, ten pounds of chicken breasts, twenty pounds of hamburger, twenty pounds of bacon, a whole NY strip cut into 13 steaks, a whole ribeye strip cut into 14 steaks, and two pork loins cut into 40 boneless pork chops. Whew! The freezer is getting close to full, as we had hit a sale previously at another store and bought three Boston butts, some ribs and a brisket. I don't think we'll be running out of meat for a while!
Back on the home front, I did manage to get the Moongate quilt finished last week...
Also, I had to regroup a bit on the blog hop project - when you don't use a particular technique very often, sometimes you totally goof and mess it up. So I regrouped, dragged out some more scraps, and got started on version 2.0....
It's moved a little further on than this but I'm too lazy to go upstairs and take another picture right now! But it does appear to be working better now that I worked out the kinks on the other piece. And maybe I can rework the pieces I made for the other one, turning them into something interesting - we shall see!
I also spray painted our patio furniture so it doesn't look all nasty any more, and I put up some bird feeders which are quite the talk of the town, at least among the birds! No pictures of the birds yet, but I'll try to get some when it stops raining....
And I FINALLY finished this 2000 piece Star Wars jigsaw puzzle. It must be the hardest puzzle I've ever done - but it was a lot of fun!
But I didn't get the pool noodle stapled to the door frame in the attic yet. That darn puzzle totally distracted me!
So this week, I need to keep working on the blog hop project and get it finished. Without bumps in the road this time!
I also want to start gathering together the fabrics for Lilli's annual quilt. This year she requested a Harry Potter quilt, and I knew immediately which one I would make...
I'm still working on blocking Emmy's quilt top, but I think it's going to work well. This week will tell!
And I WILL get that pool noodle stapled up. If only the staple gun was upstairs... so I will put it on my list of things to do in the morning and hopefully it will march upstairs with me!
I also need to work in the quilt room at church some more - unfortunately it won't clean itself, as much as I've wished it would. But it's coming along!
So now the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
