Happy Monday

OK so this is the point at which I go "underground"- the house is a disaster, meals consist of take out, and I feel just a little like a mole, not seeing much daylight.... I thought I had 7 weeks until Quilt Market in Houston, but I looked at my calendar a couple of days ago, and I have just about 5 weeks.... so...... yeah.... I'm in a little trouble. But everything will get done. I mean, it has to, right?????

So I DID get out of the house this weekend. I did a book signing at a local quilt shop for Fruitful Hands and met lots of nice people. I made a batch of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes for everyone to try (the recipe is in my book, and I haven't made them in awhile, and oh were they good.)
When I got to the shop, I got to work putting out all of the sample projects from my book. I hastily put on the Sweet Stuff Apron. OVER my sweater. When I saw this photo of me, I realized that I looked like my body measured 6 FEET ACROSS. And I wore it ALL DAY..... how embarrassing... Oy. (I cropped the photo so I only look 4 feet across, instead of 6).

It has been cool here- in the upper 60's and lower 70's and I love it- good tea-drinking weather. Good chili weather, too..... and chicken pot pie....... and roasted chicken with mashed potatoes....... Maybe I will find some time to make some comfort food for dinner tonight.

What's on your menu for this week???


  1. Everything will be alright. Don't forget who is control.
    Last night I made pasta sauce from the last of the tomatoes in the garden and homemade bread. Not sure what I will make the rest of the week. Maybe some soup because we will have chilly rainy weather the rest of the week.

  2. You? Four feet across? No way!
    Let's see, upcoming menus....hand-pulled pork BBQ from the crockpot, spaghetti and meatballs, and maybe a roast turkey breast toward the end of the week. Shall I set another plate?

  3. You're funny! You look fine:) I'm just reading this on Tuesday and I had to laugh, I made spaghetti sauce last night like Carrie did on Sunday! I'm kind of getting tired of canning but I still have three boxes of tomatoes from my MIL ripening in the garage. Good luck with the mad rush to quilt market.

  4. Oh Jackie, you crack me up! Love how you cropped your pic, that is so something I would do. I often wondered what it would be like in the spotlight-I'm not very photogenic-take a hundred pictures of me to get one good one. So if I was in the spotlight I'd have to figure out what to wear that always looked decent! Oh the troubles you have for being SO POPULAR! ~♥
