Back in the Sewing Room



Hi! Tuesday I had to go for my post op appointment--my doctor gave me my gallstones and talk about gross! I brought them home to gross out my family and then threw them away--YUCK.  No wonder I had felt like crap for so long. I was able to get my Pfaff fixed while I spent the day in Grand Junction. My machine needed a new bobbin casing as I had worn a groove into the other one. I immediately got to work on my Scrape Dance Tango Mystery Blocks. I have all 63 done. I intended to make the lap size quilt, but may decide to go bigger once I get these blocks together.  This will a fabulous scrappy top. I am also working on some other projects, but they are secrets.  I binge watched Orange Is the New Black's new season and started on House of Cards while I sewed. 
We are finally getting a break from the heat in the afternoons with some thunder showers. This afternoon's was a doozy! In less than an hour, we had1.5 inches of rain and some lightning strikes in  our neighborhood.

 My dogs don't mind the rain, but lightning and thunder are terrifying for them.
Fergie likes Jeff's lap.  Bella preferred our bed with Heather.
Lola always likes the corner floor space of our sectional. The good news is that after the storm, it has been cooler and lovely out.
I made some Cowboy Caviar this afternoon and will either make some amazing gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner or funeral sandwiches--recipes on Pinterest. Either choice will be delicious! I hope to have some things to post on Sunday.

  1. On eastern side of Colorado we eat Cowboy Caviar, but what are funeral sandwiches? -- I know what funeral potatoes are, but funeral sandwiches is a new one to me!!! Love the new scrap quilt.

  2. I meant to tell you to send some of that rain over the mountain -- it's hot and dry here.

  3. Funeral sandwiches? Funeral potatoes? This TN girl has no idea what those are. Nice blocks. You've really made some headway.

  4. Good luck with all the stitching and so good that your machine has been fixed.
    Nothing beats a good storm to cool everything down. But I do feel sorry for the dogs. Ours used to be the same.
    I am also waiting to see the response to funeral sandwiches and now potatoes.

  5. I'm working on Scrap Tango as well, but I'm farther behind than you are.
    We're exceedingly dry here in upstate NY. Even the sporadic thunderstorms have all gone around my town. Everything is drying up and I've given up hope of planting anything new or dividing and moving perennials.

  8. I didn't know that they would give it back to you. I would be interested in seeing what it looked but probably be grossed out too. Glad your feeling better.
    Your Tango scrap quilt is turning out lovely.
