Then Sara got pushed off a train platform and I jumped onto the rails and rescued her and… no, that was Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping. But it’s Chicago train line fabric, so I had the movie running through my head all the time. What actually happened was that Sara went to bed and I went to work on the fabric, and the following happened…. While Sara Was Sleeping.
It uses one of the Quick Curve Ruler patterns from the Curve It Up booklet. I loved the block – it’s a great big 16″ one – but wasn’t sure what to do with it. Someone suggested block keeper. Lucy from LucyMade (and fellow QCR bloghopper) suggested a baby quilt. I was a bit dubious about black (do that many people go for black for baby quilts?). It is rather funky – I just don’t know anyone funky having a baby.
One thing you probably don’t know about me is that I love feeding people. I’m not big on desserts, but I love throwing together a main meal. I prefer to use natural ingredients and create the basics from scratch rather than buy something store made. I’m not a fancy-pants cook, but I’ll make my own bread and pasta and sauces over buying anything with chemicals and preservatives any day. I’ve had the same apron since 1999, I believe, so it was definitely time for a new one!
And here we are!!! Me with no makeup, a stitch in my eyelid and my favourite ‘no-knead’ bread. You can’t really see the stitch, thank goodness, but I’d given up on having a good hair/skin/face day so gave in and got the photo taken… I couldn’t put any eye makeup on because of the stitch so it’s REALLY brave of me to post this picture…
Here are my taste testers. Their mum took the photo for me. Their dad is a chef – I’m pretty glad the bread disappeared before he got home because I’m not sure it would stand up to professional scrutiny!
TGIFF this week is with Ms Midge who is having a double whammy day, hosting TGIFF and the final QCR bloghop post, so go an cheer her on!
