Reed and I went to the monthly meeting of the Clear Lake Quilt Guild last night – as guests but we’re thinking of joining. I could just kick myself for forgetting to take pictures of some of our favorite quilts in Show and Tell. We sat in the back row and couldn’t see the bigger quilts but next time I’ll do better.
I took this quilt for Show and Tell – you probably remember it as it’s made completely of mens’ shirts – even the backing and the binding, all in orange, blue and white.
Here is the back.
This quilt has memories for me as well – the white shirt with the blue stars
is the blouse I wore in our picture on the cover of the very first Quilt Sampler published in 1995. I remember being honored to even be chosen for the publication but tickled to death to be on the cover – haha! These were the days of denim jumpers as you can see — 25 years ago!
And now for the Hobo Dinner – Ruth was correct and so was someone who said they made it in Girl Scouts and Betty agreed with Ruth. Here it is coming out of the oven -double wrapped in heavy foil and VERY hot!
Hamburger patty on the bottom, salt and pepper
A big slice of onion
Sliced raw potatoes, salt and pepper
Another layer of onion
A layer of sliced raw carrots, salt and pepper
This was in the oven at 400 degrees for 90 minutes.
It was delicious and no pans to wash.
You’ve sent in some great sounding books already! For those of you who have not yet sent me a good book title, you have until Tuesday to do so.
When my Pinterest page popped up in my email yesterday, I could not resist saving the picture of this Jack Russell puppy sound asleep.
For me today it’s back to the barn for a couple hours of hard scooping and then to the sewing machine or longarm where I have the Kaffe Fassett quilt loaded and ready to go! I haven’t figured out supper yet but there’s always the grill. I have a wonderful life on the farm/quilt shop, don’t I? And I am well aware of my Good Fortune which reminds me that I finished binding my Bonnie Hunter mystery named Good Fortune! Picture coming soon!
Have a great day, Friends!
