Baby Quilt from Modern Designs
For the quilts turned in this month, the baby quilt group is working on a design from Modern Designs for Classic Quilts, with authors from Cincinnati. How fun is that?
What I've learned from making this quilt: when the striped fabric is printed a little crooked, line up with the stripes, not with the straight of grain. The end.
Last night when I was, or trying to, bake cornbread, the oven wouldn't heat past 220 degrees. I tried just keeping the cornbread in for several hours in hopes of saving it - I really wanted cornbread - but there was no saving. Examination revealed a broken oven heating element. I ordered another one this morning and we'll see how fixing it works. You Tube can be pretty darn amazing. And while I'm in there - about six weeks ago I was replacing the oven light and broke it off at the socket. I've been lazy about turning off the electricity and trying to get it out, but now I can do two repairs at once.
One of my goals for this year, of course, is less procrastination - just do it. Many times I've wished my oven light worked but did nothing about it. Wishing isn't getting any light.
