40 days ago I decided to give myself a 50 days challenge, with an average of 2 blocks a day on 2 projects – the one above + Cornelian quilt, which is in the stitchery phase.
Along the way I added a sewing machine project – the angel log cabin quilt.
My usual Tour de Fibre blogging went down the drain with some family matters here,
but I have kept up with my at-least-2-blocks-a-day on Instagram, with daily photos.
As much as I do enjoy writing my blog, the Instagram format is quicker, more like a postcard, and it fitted this challenge so well. If you are into Instagram, my user name is Hanne Schneider and/or hannequilt.
In between I have also done some knitting of dish cloths, the new fun-to-make and so nice to use in the kitchen.
No doubt – I will always be a quilter at heart, but knitting is very fun and very portable, and with these smaller projects they are done before my arms acts up – win win!
10 days to go on this challenge!
The love of my life and dear companion for 32 years has had some serious health issues going on for the last year and a half.
He won the lottery last week – the new growth / tumour is benign for now, and he will be back for a new ultrasound check-up in 6 months. The growth has held us on our toes for a while now and it is good to be able breath both in and out.
It surely sets everyday life in a new light – everyday life is not boring, it is good!
I do not know if it helps or anything, but I do believe that what you eat makes a difference, and I enjoy making food from scratch. All the chemical additives might make the food last for a long time, but I seriously doubt they are good for us!
Carrot lemon marmalade and home baked bread
Bread rolls with a lot of fiber
Just had to try cinnamon rolls with a half-wholegrain dough too – success!
Oatmeal cookies with real vanilla and raisins. The taste was so right, but they were a bit crumbly. I will try them again. Maybe they need more time in the oven?
Dinner includes a lot of veggies and less starch than before. If we are what we eat, we are getting there, meal by meal.
Give someone you love a hug today!
