What's Been in the Works






I have quilted two of the tops I brought back with me from my fun quilting retreat in Omaha:


Floral Wave




Butterfly Enchantment


And I did a little yardwork – not too much since it has been oppressively hot and humid here.



This is our typical forecast – the lightning chases me out of the sewing room each day:

And this is my latest kitchen gadget purchase.  So far, I love, love, love it.  I’ve made lots of chicken, beef roasts, and these pork chops:





Several things I really like about it are that it keeps the kitchen cooler since I am not using the hot oven and it makes putting an entire meal on the table much quicker.  The roast took 40 minutes rather than 3 hours.  That’s a win!

I too love my IP. Just haven't mastered the yogurt thing yet.
