With the Quiltathon starting Thursday, I’m making preparations and getting as much done as I can get done so I can sew, sew, sew on those four days.
I’ve gotten in the terrible habit of ironing one shirt each night for Vince to wear to work the next day. The ironing board is in the sewing room, the washer/dryer out here isn’t hooked up so all the washing is done in the house. I forget to bring the shirts over here and right before bed, I’m running over here to iron a shirt. I brought a whole pile of them over here this morning and ironed shirts for all the way through next Tuesday. No ironing during Quiltathon.
My menus are planned and they’re all easy stuff!
Stuffed Peppers (from the freezer)
Corn on the Cob (cooked in the solar oven)
Ribs (on the smoker)
Mustard Greens (canned from my dad’s garden last year)
Baked Potatoes (cooked in the solar oven)
Green Beans (canned from my garden)
Spaghetti & Meatballs (sauce I canned and meatballs in the freezer)
Are you getting things done ahead of time so you can spend extra hours sewing?
