Odds and Ends

I did a little more nesting yesterday by taking the vacuum to the house, cleaned the bathroom, and made two new loaves of bread. One is a cornmeal bread with fresh herbs and ooooooooooh it is sooooooo yummy!!! Tonight I'll put on a multigrain bread in the machine. I also made a big pan of chicken enchiladas for supper last night.

They freeze well so I have a few more meals of enchiladas to add to the freezer food!!! I think I'll tackle my chicken and broccoli casserole on Thursday.

I mentioned the other day that I was working on some redwork for the center of a sewing machine cover I am making my aunt for Christmas. Well, here is the finished center. Tonight I will cut out the rest of the fabric pieces to assemble the cover together.

I also started on another pair of knitted socks.

I plan to make up a few different pairs of knitted socks for Christmas gifts this year. I figure they will be easy little projects to work on while taking care of a baby. It is also something I can work on during the summer months while relaxing out on the patio deck.

The Flip Flop Bag fabrics are finally all prewashed and half of them are pressed and cut out. So far I have 6 bags cut and ready to go on the serger. I still need to cut out the the flip flops and liners for each bag. I hope to get back to them tomorrow afternoon.

Well this is a short post tonight as I want to get an early start on cutting out the machine cover. I hope everyone had a nice Easter break this past weekend and you didn't OD too much on chocolate!

Love the idea of a Redwork sewing machine cover! Lucky duck your aunt!
Knitting is good thing to do, it helps you relax. Something about the repetitve motion...

Take it easy and rest as much as you can Andrea.

Oh! I bet your in overtime now trying to get everything done. Is that Broccoli chicken anything like the one I told you about? I'd love to see the recipe. I'm actually going back to Sin Jawns for the summer semester.

LOL, so if I need help with the stitchery I'll call you up lol!

I hope you're feeling well! I loved the pics you had up.

Ok, you must be nearing term...so much energy! It's what happens when the baby is near.
I love the red work. Keep going and get things done, as your days of peace and quiet are numbered!

You are soooooo talented! The enchiladas look wonderful -- maybe I'll fix some one of these days. Haven't had them in a long time.
Tomorrow we are taking a "retired" day trip -- going an hour north to a mall that has a water/boat feature.
Should be fun!
