Ahh... nice to have my husband home again. :)
I did take advantage of his absence by making this healthy version of Sweet and Sour Pineapple Pork.
Next time I make it, I'll have to double up on the pineapple and sauce. It took me 2.5 hours to make on Thursday and it was all gone by Friday evening. It's yummy! :)
Most of my efforts in the past few days went into cutting half-yard pieces into strips. I figured that there was over 40 yards of fabric cut in all. Each half-yard took me about 5 minutes to cut... so somewhere around 7 hours to cut them all!! What you see to the right of the picture is just a PART of the 2.5" stack. I have 1.5", 2", 3.5", 4" and one 4.5" because I was aiming for a 3.5" and forgot to look on what inch I was on. :P
I have truly taken over the entire apartment with my quilting. Bedroom has a large part of my stash, living room has my ironing board, sewing machine and bins of fabric. Bathroom holds all my hand dyeing equipment. Dining room has more fabric, my storage drawers and generally where I would cut. But my back finally couldn't take heavy duty cutting by hunching over the dining table, so I slipped on my sandals with 2" heels and at last, took over the kitchen too! :D And wow... it really helped my back. You may also feel free to swoon over my less-than-superior housekeeping skills. *giggle* I have priorities! And apparently shutting the silverware drawer all the way isn't one of them. ;)
What I'm currently cutting is for Bonnie's Star Struck that I'm gonna use my hand dyes and black Kona with. Should be a stunner! Also cutting squares for the 9-patch due February 1st. Eek. That's like 2 days away! :)
