Hows that for a title for a blog post?! Let’s start with the oops…
We took pictures at Country Threads on my daughter Kelli’s camera and Kelli has her camera at her house….so you’ll have to wait another day or so to see them…
My WOW… Check this out….all the 168 string blocks are sewn and all 840 half square triangles are sewn for my Jamestown Landing quilt.
This is two days of POWER sewing…obviously I have LOTS and LOTS of trim work and ironing to do but I am very happy with this much progress.
When we were at Country Threads for our shopping day, we were treated like royalty. We had drinks and snacks then at the check out they gave everyone a free Country Threads Cookbook. Kelli and I were looking at the cookbook and found the Kettle Corn recipe that Country Threads is famous for so we of course had to try it…YUM!
We popped ours on the stove, in a pan…no fancy popcorn machines. We decided next time we need to half the recipe for the pan I was using as there was no more room for popcorn to pop… it was very good and I am sure, very caloric. Here’s the original recipe.
1 cup popcorn
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
I put the ingredients in my huge pan and shook it over the burner like my mom did when I was a kid…
And here are my stacks….
Fat quarters and a couple half yard pieces from Country Threads….See I stayed with the original plan for the most part…mostly neutrals….I purchased a couple scrap bags, antiquing spray and a bag of sand for pincushions. I did really good spending about the same amount as last year.
I have had a couple WONDERFUL days of blissful sewing. I am so glad the girls came for a sewing visit. It was the best stay-cation ever!
