3331. That’s how many pieces there are in this new quilt I’m piecing together.
Because it was a “Mystery Quilt” I had no idea what I was getting into or how many pieces I would end up cutting and piecing and ironing and sewing to other pieces…
But it’s January and I am thinking of how pretty this will look on one of the beds at the lake this summer. So that keeps me going. The colors make me think of mountain sunsets and blue-sky mornings and the dark shade on the beach at dawn.
It’s quiet here. Banjo Man and I are feeling much better, but we’re still more than happy to stay close to home and rest up. Yesterday afternoon we drove south to Walmart to pick up all the important things, like chicken broth and walnuts and quilt batting and yogurt. I’ve been making lots of soups in the crock pot this month. Today’s creation? Creamy chicken and mushroom. I’ll start with this recipe and make it thicker, I think. With broccoli and no carrots. And maybe some cauliflower rice for thickening.
Tomorrow and Thursday I will be taking my mother to various medical appointments, so it’s good to have dinner already made and in the crock pot when I stagger home.
Have you tried cauliflower rice? Or should I say riced cauliflower?
I’m experimenting with it. The jury is still out.
We are expecting the arrival of a new appliance in about an hour, so I need to get dressed and make sure the house looks presentable. And then it’s back to this…
