I'm preparing a meal to take to someone else this morning. It always makes me so nervous. It's because while I used to be a pretty good cook. . . as I have aged I don't multi-task as well. Sometimes ingredients get forgotten or I don't stir something or the cake falls. I think it's because I'm out of practice. So, I picked a never-fail recipe and I'm plowing ahead. I also added ham chunks to this recipe.
We woke up to about 2" of new snow. It's always so pretty to see the world covered in white. But, having snow on the ground meant that I wouldn't be going for my walk. My walking partner has had knee replacements and she won't risk slipping and falling. I don't blame her at all. I just looked out the window and the sweet snowflakes are fluttering down again. Sigh, so peaceful.
I've started yet another Christmas quilt. Here is my progress.
I need to finish the pillow, decorate the tree, and make presents. I think the wall in the center needs a picture or shelf or something. I'll figure that out when I get the rest done.
I was going to make individual blocks to look like my son's ornaments. This is a really horrible picture of his missionary tree. As each of the kids went on their missions I would collect their ornaments given to them by Grandma and Grandpa and put them on an artificial 1/2 tree that hung on the wall. This son's tree is the only one that I have a picture of and so I have a record of all the ornaments.
Now that I'm actually working on the quilt I shudder to think how much time it would take to make those 12 ornament blocks. It would look fabulous but I need to come up with better idea.
Christmas is only 320 days away,
