Breakfast In Bed No More

Since my knee surgery, Tom has been bring me breakfast in bed.  If it is one thing he can cook is great eggs and toast.  The bacon might have been a little too crispy, the grits a little to stiff and he never washes the pots and pans he uses, but it was nice that he has been here to take care of me.  Even the kids would help out bring me this or that.  Even Darnell, left me some money to order carryout.  Oh what a loving family I have.

I woke up this morning, the house was quiet, I smelled nothing cooking.  My family has deserted me.  For the last couple of days, I have been coming downstairs working on my Dresden blocks, I guess since I was getting around so well they figured I did not need any help doing anything.  I had to fix my own breakfast, which was only coffee and toast.  I guess I will have to fix my only lunch and dinner, which I know they will be happy to have dinner for a change.

Since I am home alone, I washed the birds nest of hair, and how good it feels.  Since no one is home I have to avoid taken a shower since I have one of the old fashion claw tubs the sides are to high to step in, so a birdbath is what I had to take.  I put on clean lounging wear and head downstairs to sandwich my quilt.  Since I cannot show you the quilt yet, below is the piece backing.


These are the fabrics that I used for my Dresden.  I am soooo happy to finally use up this fabric in anyway possible.  I am also happy that I will have maybe my first completed project for a hop and not just show the flimsy/quilt top.

I have not procrastinated on this project.  I might even have time to do another before the hop beings.

daretodresdenbutton The Dare To Dresden Hop will start this Thursday, Jan. 24th, and I will show minds off on Friday, Jan 25th.  I am so looking forward to seeing what everyone has created.

Well, I guess it is time for me to hit the sewing room.  I was hoping that someone will come home to feed me, put I guess I am on my own.
