Last weekend the stars all aligned in the right order and I actually had 2 days with nothing on my calendar! Raising my boys those days came few and far between – I’m talking years! But now it seems they come along every few months and when they do I bask in the glory of a day with nothing to do!
I started my day baking a loaf of Greek Yogurt Banana bread because I had a couple of bananas that were past the point of when I like to eat them and some Greek yogurt (of course) Then I made a loaf of The Best EVER Chocolate Zucchini bread to use up one of the zucchinis my sister gave me out of her garden. I found the recipe on Pinterest and let me just say – OMG!! It is SO freaking good! It has the consistency of cake – I’m sure it’s not good for you at all even with the zucchini, but I don’t care! I can easily eat the full loaf, which is why I took both loafs to work with me on Monday and shared them with my co-workers.
I also had a gallon bag full of huckleberries my sister had given me a few weeks ago. I love making jam, so that gallon bag is now 6 jars of jam – some of those jars will become Christmas gifts! (PSA: yes, it’s time to start thinking of Christmas especially if you like to make your gifts like I do!)
But the best thing I did this weekend was sew while binging on Longmire! I love that show and not to give anything away -but one of the main characters (Vic) is now living in a Airstream Argosy motor home! JUST LIKE ME!!!! (except I have a Argosy travel trailer – but STILL!!!) I think it’s becoming a thing!
Back to sewing – I finished my shower curtain!
Really all I had to do was hem all the edges and add grommets. I don’t know why I procrastinated so long. My bathroom is starting to look legit. I think it’s time to renovate!
Anyway, once I was done with the shower curtain I decided make a baby quilt using the left over fabric. I cut a bajillion 2.5″ squares for this quilt to assemble 49 9-patches. Once again a quilt I saw on Pinterest was my inspiration. (I love Pinterest)
I was able to sew this quilt together fairly fast (which seems to be key with me), so next weekend I think I may start another quilt just like it using all my leftover orange and white scraps.
Before you even ask – No, I’m not pregnant and as far as I know, neither are my boys. I’m learning that not all my quilts have to be queen size. In fact, it might stand a better chance of getting finished if I make fewer blocks (i.e., crib size). This quilt will probably end up in my Etsy store once I get it quilted – which is on my list of ‘to-do’s’ this weekend.
Till next week!
