Another “At Home” day…

This morning, right beside my breakfast table, was this beautiful flower on my Christmas cactus.  What a lovely way to start the day.


The puzzle fabric is the backing for my Riley Blake fabric quilt (Pieces of Hope).  It is all ready to send off to the long-arm quilter.

Then I got the binding and backing ready for the quilt that my niece and I are making together.

With these things crossed off my list, it was time to choose another item from my long, long, long, UFO list.  Nothing appealed to me – except – starting a new project.  So I cut out the pieces I need for a pattern titled Hanky Panky.

Tired of standing at the cutting table for several hours, I decided to have a simple supper.  In my cupboard was a package of Asia noodles.  The picture on the package looks pretty good.  It depicts a bowl overflowing with yummy looking noodles.  In reality, as you can see, the sad looking noodles only fill about a fourth of the bowl.   Taste?  Passable.  Will I buy this again?   No.

And here is my progress tonight on the stitched Quaker.
