I've been busy lately...just in time for summer, I finished my ragquilt.
I started this back in September, but had to abandon it in my frantic Raggedy Ann and Andy sewing frenzy, and finally pulled it back out. I actually made this quilt for myself! During the winter, our house is on the cool side and we like to snuggle under blankets in the evening watching movies. Keith and Sareny both have rag quilts I made for them and I was left out in the cold, so to speak. It felt a little weird spending so much time making something that was for myself, but I'm sure it will get lots of use in a few months.
I have also made a few matching skirts for Sareny and Finley. These skirts were for a friend and I thought they turned out pretty cute.
I stayed up late one night and made some red pepper jelly after everyone else was sleeping. Our favorite ways to eat this is either on wheat thins with cream cheese, or use it as a sauce on stir-fried chicken, onions, red peppers, garlic and mushrooms. Then we serve it over rice. Thanks to my wonderful mother in law for both recipes, and the ideas for the skirts!
