Now the title has nothing to do with one another. I am looking for a sauce recipe for a blackberry cobbler. My grandmother (bless her soul) made a sauce for her blackberry cobbler to die for. It was a creamy sauce with sugar, milk (canned or whole), maybe flower and butter, but most definitely Brandy. I don’t know if it call a hard sauce, sweet sauce or white sauce. I am a city girl, I know that you country girls, that love to canned, cook and quilt must have some idea what I am looking for. So if anyone of my followers has a recipe for a cobbler sauce please send it to me firstname.lastname@example.org. Just look at these cobblers, makes you mouth just water, I am just drooling by looking at them.
Now for the Quilt Abbreviations: Last night as I was going through reading blogs I notice some bloggers use abbreviations that I guess most of you might know. In my case I have to think about it. Hey I am just starting to text and still did not know what ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing) was. We all know BOM, UFO, FQ, and DH (Dear Husband) I did not now that one. So I decided to surf the web for quilt abbreviations and here are a few that I don’t think you have ever seen.
WIWMI - Wish It Would Make Itself
WOMBAT - Waste of Material, Batting and Time
WWIT - What Was I Thinking
FART - Fabric Acquisition Road Trip
MGBTQ - Must Get Back To Quilting
Flimsy – Finish top, not quilted or pieced top. (I found out about this when I first started blogging and most of my quilt friends never heard of it before).
SABLE – Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy (I think we might all have this)
SUI – Shopping Under Influence (usually with a friend)
TOAD – Trashed Objects Abandoned In Disgust
Siggies - Squares of fabric with signatures and other info on them
Squishy – Envelopes filled with swap fabric or gifts sent/received in the mail
BITW - Bears in the Woods, a group making the titled quilt from a book
BOB - black on black but that could also be beige on beige
SEX or S.E.X. - Stash Enhancing eXcursion, Stash Enhancing eXpedition, Stash Enhancing eXperience. (Hay just want it.)
TANQP - There Are/Ain't No Quilt Police
NGFITSSITSWW - Never Gonna Finish It So Send It To Someone Who Will!
There are a lot more, but I JCSTC (just cannot seem to care). So until tomorrow MQS (my quilt sisters). Do you have any abbreviations to add to the list.
