Recently a couple of my readers have been a bit unhappy with me because I’m not posting a lot of quilting stuff. I understand that many of you came to my blog because of the quilt related content and I also understand that many, if not all, of you don’t give a hoot what I’m fixing for dinner or what Chad is doing or what Speck is doing or what Vince is doing. But, my blog is about my life and my life is quilting, cooking, my family and whatever else comes along.
Because I’m not posting a lot about quilting doesn’t necessarily mean I am not quilting. I’m a longarm quilter and I rarely post pictures or information about the quilts I’m working on for customers. Often I’m working on projects for a book or magazine and I cannot show you what I’m working on .. not because I’m such a secretive person but just because that’s the way it has to be.
If you’re only here for the quilt related posts, I can’t promise you that there will be a ton of those in the near future. I do have a lot of things going on that can’t be shown here yet. But, if you just want to keep up with my goofy life and get a glimpse of quilting as often as I can share it, stick with me and sometime in the next 11-1/2 months, I’ll get back to showing more quilt pictures!
In the meantime, here’s what I did today:
1. I made this Blackberry Wine Cake. I’m going on a retreat next week and I want to bring a Blackberry Wine Cake. Mom gave me a neat pan but it’s smaller than my regular cake pan so I made the cake today to make sure it all works. I’ll make another one on Sunday to take with me on Monday.
2. Started my day out with this ugly rascal.
Put it in the smoker most of the day and this is what we had for dinner:
Sorry . . I forget that taking a picture with my old camera without a flash makes things come out orange. But, this was one good turkey! We had it in the freezer and I’m trying to eat as much as I can from the freezer so . . the turkey is no longer in the freezer!
Even though I won’t show a picture, I’ve spent a lot of the day at the longarm so I am still quilting! 🙂
