More Snow on Way
What a gorgeous day today is. Bright, sunny, warmer. You would never know that we are meant to get another big snow storm starting tonight.
No No Penny and I went up to Belfast to the Coop to stock up on food supplies AND to walk the river/harbor walk. This walk winds through the ship yard, and I’m always intrigued by the HUGE boats up on their stilts, ready for whatever work they need. I love seeing what lies beneath the water that we don’t normally see. Here’s what I saw today:
What a sleek boat But what intrigues me in addition to the sleekness is the depth of the rudder (?) at the back of the boat. I suppose it balances the boat???
I came home with two heavy sacks of groceries and fixed this lunch of veggies and ricotta cheese, which I seem to tolerate ok:
Time to cook more beets…
…which I forgot to buy today.
Lunch yesterday was pretty nice too:
I love, LOVE drumsticks. I cook a big family size pack of them and freeze them. It’s easy to grab out two for lunch. They defrost in an hour on the cast iron griddle I bought years ago from William Sonoma, and they reheat in about 15 minutes in my oven.
Betsy Maislen is addicted to the Long Time Gone blocks. This one, due in April, arrived in my messages last night.
And Margaret Elaine Jinno is now caught up with the group here in Camden. Here are all her blocks. She says she’s redoing the two Bow Tie blocks now that she is rolling. Love her Star in Star block. Love all her blocks for that matter. M-E is the best seamstress I know.
Margaret Elaine has inspired me with her crosses block. I have not liked the addition of the star, but I like what she has done to make it pop. Maybe I’ll do that too.
I finished what work I have been doing for some days now on the Traveling Quilt I have. Pics will follow after our next meeting.
The binding is on Tula Pink’s 100 Modern Quilts. I will start sewing it down tonight while watching tv. It was fun to quilt it on the long arm.
Two more rows are on Valse Brilliante, the EPP project.
I’M CATCHING UP with the UFOs.
