Even while on the road in my rig, since I got so tired of ripping out my knitting (I'm a terrible knitter), I weave ... although this had taken a back seat to Jonathan. His current cage takes up WAY too much space, so my Baby Wolf has to stay home.
While in Alaska, thanks to Miss Patty Chance, I picked up a tiny sewing machine so I could quilt on the road. My table is plenty large enough to cut and sew on, but again, that all has changed since Jonathan has become a permanent passenger. I'm still looking for a smaller cage and am hoping Elite RV Renovations in Harrisburg Oregon can make a spot for him so I get my space back.
In the meantime, I tried knitting again ... haven't gotten very far on THIS project!!
And THEN, I came across THIS!! It's definitely not your Grandma's quilt! It's a lot more fun and requires no stitching, at least up to this point. I spent all day yesterday in Fresno at the quilt store, learning this fun technique.
Kind of like appliqué, you iron stuff on the back of the fabric, cut out what you want and press it together on that special tan paper. Eventually, it will be pressed onto a background and then the entire project quilted. I still have bunny ears to complete and a few adjustments to make, but this is the perfect motorhome project!!
It was a long day and an even longer drive home. On the way however, I remembered I had ugly steaks in the fridge for dinner. Yup ... I figured to try and cook dinner for Gretchen and I, a shaky proposition at best. These steaks are pretty foolproof however, and came out delicious!! With Gretchen's salad, we had an actual edible dinner in about 20 minutes. On my next trip to Tucson, I'm buying a dozen steaks for the freezer. It's my GO TO company meal from now on!!
I was sorry to see the Giants lose to Chicago last night, but with Jake Peavy pitching, we never had a chance. I mean really, he was so bad they took him out in the second inning!! He's ALWAYS that bad, so why don't they just can his butt? At any rate, the next two games should be a little better, not that I expect the Giants to win ..... Chicago is really good!! At blog reader Robert's advice, I'm having Chicago dogs for dinner!! Plug your ears Robert ..... I'm putting ketchup on my dogs!!!
