I know that copper and turquoise don't go with this wall hanging. Let's face it ... I've got somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 yards of backing fabric, all purchased at rock bottom prices. The problem I've discovered is NONE of it matches the quilts I've been making. I'm at a loss for words. How could that be?
Unfortunately, I don't have enough of anything to back this monster. I have no idea WHY I thought I should buy this one. I guess my taste in quilts has evolved over the last eight years.
As a reward for getting all that sewing done and a celebration that the cursed Halloween quilt is almost complete, I decided to try for some pecan salted caramel sauce for the cheesecake I planned to bake. If the sauce bombed, there would be no reason to bake the cake.
For the first time ever, I didn't burn it. Oh MY! I tasted that first bit on the spoon and I was totally at a loss for words! WOW! By the time I finished tasting it, I had eaten an entire HUGE spoonful!! I just could't stop myself. Me, who is trying to be on a sugar free diet, completely blew it!
So I made the cheesecake ... in my instant pot of course ... because I can only make a small 6" one. That's my safety rope ... I only get six very small pieces. But of course I slathered it in salted caramel sauce!!! This is before I completely smothered it with ANOTHER spoonful!
That's when I noticed just how dirty and greasy my stovetop was. Time for a cleaning. I grabbed the all-purpose kitchen spray and paper towels. I sprayed liberally. In no time, little tendrils of lavendar scent came wafting up to my nose. Oooooh, that smells nice. .......Wait ........
That's when it hit me. My cleaner smells slightly of ammonia. I just cleaned my entire stovetop with FABREEZE. I just stood there and looked at the bottle with not a word escaping my lips. Sometimes I wonder about you Nancy!!
The weather has turned chilly ... we are down to the 30's this morning. I'm going to go sit on the couch and snuggle up with the puppies till we all get warm, before hauling stuff out to the rig. The days are flying by and I need to get packing for that RV Rally.
Cleaning your stove top with Fabreeze, that's a good one, remains me of not to long ago, I poured shampoo on my pouf instead of shower gel to have my shower. It's a good to thing we can laugh at our selves.ReplyDelete
No offense, but YAY! I thought it was just me!! I guess we all do those crazy things.Delete
Grrr, just lost my comment!!!ReplyDelete
I can't help with the quilt backing but you'll figure something out. In the fabric store/vendor at the AZ market it screams N A N C Y! as I thought of you.
That sauce sounds wonderful but perhaps something we should avoid!!
The cheesecake is good for you, reminds me that I need to make some. :)
I hate it when that happens! Yup ... the market has been calling my name for the last month! That's a definite stop for me.Delete
We all have those Oops moments but at least there was no harm done. At least you are keeping busy while getting ready to hit the road.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
At least I didn't pour something terrible on my head! LOLDelete
Oh my....that sauce looks so delicious. Yesterday I washed my face with hair conditioner. I was wondering why my face felt slick! Have a great day!ReplyDelete
Hahaha Elva! That's even funnier!Delete
sure sounds like a tasty snack you whipped up and of course cleaning the stove that way sure sounds like is would work an smell pretty too.ReplyDelete
It actually DID work! I just hope my FOOD doesn't smell pretty!!Delete
Love the quilts. You'll figure things out, after all you are a quilter. Not a cheesecake person but it looked wonderful. Great cleaning job, I'm sure the kitchen smells wonderful.ReplyDelete
Thank you ... I do love fabric and quilting, but sometimes I buy more than is necessary. It's an addiction!Delete
Well at least the bathroom an the kitchen smells The sameReplyDelete
I could imagine all the germs are dying laughing 🙊
Yes they certainly are! Imagine my laughter when it really worked! Took the grease right off the stove!Delete
Nancy, Nancy, Nancy...you are such a hoot girl.ReplyDelete
And I'm not even blond!!! Well maybe, just a little.Delete
