Post Prandial Rambling

I think I knew, in the back of mind, why larger families can sometimes be a good thing. Goes along with the concept of many hands make light work ideology. Rent a family on holidays?! Thanksgiving dinner was delicious - and thankfully I have LOTS of leftovers - but I had to question if TWO days of cooking was really worth an hour and a half of snarfing! I may even have to have DH warm his own leftovers this evening - as I am feeling a distinct aversion to seeing the stove today! I have a great stove (last year's acquisition) that has the added benefit of having a second (albeit small) oven. I seldom use it except at Christmas time for cookies ( ye gads baking will begin again soon!) Yesterday, I was happy to have the second oven- since I needed to find room to bake the home made dinner rolls ! I love baking - breads, cakes & cookies - but have never been as dexterous with my repertoire of entrees. If only we could eat only bread and cheese ! Today, I am going to relax. Perhaps go to the annual Artisan's Fair in town - but that will be the extent of my non creative activities. I hope to actually s-e-w today!

The quilt in the photo above is a queen sized one I made some time ago. I gave it to a friend as a reunion gift.

The colors in that quilt are so beautiful.

The colors almost seem as if light is peeking through stained glass. Beautiful, soft glowy feeling!

I love the jewel tones in that quilt. It's definitely a happy quilt.
