Sunday dinner is sort of an institution/ritual at our house. We used to have other rituals and habits over the years, which faded into history while we adjusted to the changing times. There was Friday night TV-dinner featuring a home-made towel blanket and home-made pizza.
There was Sunday-morning breakfast (pancakes or waffles and fruit) and there were times when weekday dinners were pretty much set menus. And for Christmas, we have always had sauerkraut, ever since R and I moved in together.
Tonight, Sunday dinner was a little different, and even more fun than usual. T and his girlfriend L cooked dinner, and E and her boyfriend Z made dessert! V rolled in from an inspiring weekend among photography friends just in time to join us for dessert and shortly after K arrived. By then, I was enjoying this so much (and having everyone here!) that I instructed V & K to be next in this cooking extravaganza. A new tradition is born ?
Above you see one of the quilts I made for T. This one is called 'storm at sea'. T likes it, but it is a heavy quilt and thus not that practical, because when it gets cold, he uses a comforter. So I set out to design a thinner quilt. I gathered some solids and some patterns.
Then, I gave them to T and L for review. They made yah/nay piles. Now I can cut some trial blocks!
When, that remains to be determined. It usually takes me far longer to make a quilt than I wish in my optimism. And I do have a full-time job now. Will keep you updated on the progress!
