Make-A-List-Monday: Recovery Week!

Morning everyone!

I spent last week cooking for about 80 people at our church's girls camp. 3 meals a day, plus evening treats. I'm dog tired. Feel like I've been hit by a truck or something. But I got in a couple of great naps since I've been home, and I'm feeling much better.

And I miss my sewing machine! I took it with me, thinking I would have time and space to do something. And I would have, only I decided to sear four fingers on my left hand (some gorgeous blisters, let me tell you) right before we were to serve Tuesday night's dinner. I had lovely little sausage fingers, all bandaged up. So no sewing or cutting for me (I'm left handed!). All healed up now, so I'm raring to go this week.

Here's what I've got planned:

  • Sew up the extra dumplings I cut (I made dumplings for the jr. staff girls and they loved them and I cut out extras before I left - my youngest daughter has claimed them all)
  • Quilting time on Friday!
  • Work on my latest Christmas quilt - sewing, trimming, pressing
  • Cut out some gifts - zippy pouches, egg aprons, grocery bags - I've got some thank you gifts to make!
How about you? What are your plans?

And just to avoid a picture-less blog post, here's something beautiful:

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie! Made by me, with strawberries and rhubarb from my garden. My first, but not my last!


  1. Well, that's no fair to post a photo of a delicious dessert! Glad your fingers healed up - doesn't sound like fun doing all that work with an injured hand. Have fun quilting!

  2. So glad your fingers are better - you must have been in a lot of pain! Enjoy your sewing time :)! Lovely pie - looks super delicious, and fruit from your garden - extra special for sure!!
