Re: Use up the Fabric Stash Challenge

Used up another piece of knit fabric making my top yesterday. I tried the different collar and I am not sure if I like it. Oh well live and learn.

This afternoon I hope to use up some scrap fabrics in squares for the quilt I am going to be making (well quilt top for now).

Re: Are Your Meals More Simple or More Complex?

I usually do a main dish and a side or two. Tonight it is roast chicken, carrots and kohlrabi. No dessert though there are sliced strawberries and cream in the fridge if we want dessert. I am going to throw the leftover salad on the table as well.

Re: Daily Check-In, June 20, 2021

Update Hubby got the bird feeder set up properly, the light up on the gate post, the new lights up around the BBQ gazebo and the lawn mowed. He even managed to pick kohlrabi for our supper.
