I quilted this flannel tumbler quilt last night. I am so bad about pushing a project to the side to start a new one. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?
Anyway, it's finished now, and I'm glad. The tumblers are all flannel, including a variety of fabrics left over from various projects of mine, plus some from a sampler package I bought from a seller on ebay. (Thanks, Deb!) The border is a corduroy that I've had for a while. I quilted it in a medium mostly meandering freehand. I'm not showing the back, because it is not at all interesting. It's a heavier weight fabric I've had for ages. There was almost enough of it, so there is also another very old piece of heavy weight to finish it. I intended this to be a utilitarian piece, and I think it suits its purpose quite nicely. It has already taken up residence on my recliner in the den. Apparently it is a good idea to cover any piece of upholstered furniture I want to keep. Not to say anything about Dinah, of course........
Our son and daughter in law gave me a meat grinder attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas and today I put it to good use. I had cooked a pork roast earlier in the week and after grinding it with the new attachment, I made tamales. I ended up with almost seven dozen, which is nothing for those super women (like Mr. Muddling's mom, now residing in heaven), but quite a chore for me! They are good, though.
We got this sweet Valentine in the mail from our friend Phyllis and her husband so I thought I would share it with you and wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you get LOTS of chocolate and whatever else your heart desires.
I won't show you the nice, big box of chocolates Mr. Muddling brought home for me today.
Hugs and kisses,
