I knew it was bound to happen.... I have "slumped." My underlying goal of 2006 was to do something quilty everyday. I don't feel as though I have. But as I tried to type specifics I remembered that yesterday, I met a fellow quilter at Jinny Beyer's shop & purchased 2 fat 1/8th of "cat fur" fabric. I followed up that minimal purchase with a "I Spy" binge at G-Street Fabrics. (So if buying is quilty - I did something quilty yesterday.) On Sunday, I met my mini-group and pressed a top and back so that I can send them out to be quilted! Pressing is definately quilty! I also made a fabric purchase - I had a coupon burning a hole in my pocket - I bought a back, so it is not all bad.... However, I brought Pandora, the featherweight, and she did nto even leave her box.... Working backwards, that brings us to Saturday... Did I do anything quilty on Saturday? (I don't recall.) And Back to Friday - I don't recall. On Thursday, I did stitch some of my hanging sleeve...
I really need a dose of motivation - Hopefully my swimming tonight will not tucker me out too much.... (I don't need another excuse!)
I hope you guys had a more quilting filled holiday....
BTW Judy's Corn and Bean salad was a hit, but quite a few gals asked that I refrain from using the cilentro next time. I also made a "Poor Man's Pie" Not sure why it is called that, but it is SUPER easy!
Poor Man's Pie
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 large can of fruit or pie filling (I usually use the 29oz can of sliced peaches)
1 stick butter or margarine
Put stick of butter in pan and melt in a 350˚ oven. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add enough juice from canned fruit and/or milk to make batter (about the consistency of cake batter, but it might be a little frothy). Pour into pan over hot melted butter. Do Not Stir. Spoon fruit or pie filling over top of batter and butter. Do Not Stir. Bake at 350˚till deep golden brown, about 30 minutes. Good warm or cold.
