Wednesday Ramblings

Tonight will be Ken's first night back at work. I know he is going to be sore, can I come visit you for the next week??


Yesterday we ran a few errands, Alycia's box is shipped (watch for it Alycia!!) and I stopped at the fabric store for a few things I needed. Yes, NEEDED! And yes, shopped my stash first. Drat!

Today I will make a dish Ken loves for supper, we call it "football dip". Make with browned burger, onion, salsa, canned chili/no beans, a little taco seasoning, and Velveeta. You eat it with tortilla chips. And a pan of brownies.


I've been working on my goals. Readying a top to load. The Chocolate Covered Cherries are waiting for their border. Remember the blocks I found and I couldn't remember why I made them? I found the book where I got the idea, soon I can work on them! The Christmas Courthouse steps are trimmed waiting for the next strips. The "Manly Happy Blocks" are now a top waiting for a border.




I also love to bake, and one of my favorite things to make is bread. Here I made two loaves of raisin cinnamon bread.

I hope you are getting in the sewing time you want. The weather has warmed and I feel much more like sewing.

Love the dinner menu!

How big is your 'manly' quilt? Does it need borders?!

Julia said...

Yummilicious!!! I love to bake bread too! I haven't done cinnamon raisin for awhile. I think that some of this yummilicious goodness is going to be in my very near future! Thanks for the inspiration! :~)

Kim said...

Yummmillicious indeed, Julia! Lori, you made me wish I had a loaf of your bread every single time I spot a fresh loaf over here. That dinner for your hub's is total comfort food right down to that pan of brownies, lol. Hope he doesn't suffer too much this week. That quilt you have hanging there is very festive. Perked up my dreary day.
