It’s done! And I love it.

I got Adam to take the pictures because clearly his camera is better than mine, and I wanted these photos to look different from my usual standing-over-project pose that makes it look like a narrowing hallway towards the top. So the whole thing is based roughly on the Any Way You Slice It quilt from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. I didn’t use a pattern, though, and I only made one kind of square. The finished size is roughly 6″ x 7″ and Adam has commented that it will make an exciting hot plate after this competition is done.

So I bought one.


Fabulous t-shirt from Communitea Graphics on Etsy.

tulipsMore gardening yesterday!

Adam finished the new flowerbed, incredibly hard work. I planted a row of tulip bubls in red, pink, purple, red/white, and orange/yellow in the new bed. They were in great shape, so hopefully they’ll come up soon.

finished pork tenderloinThis is my variation on a recipe I first found in Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats. I’ve moved on to different cookbooks now, but still I’ve been making this for years, one of my fastest and tastiest go-to dinners, and over time I’ve tweaked it into my own thing. Her recipe cooks 25 degrees hotter than mine, she uses coriander, garlic, more lime juice. Her recipe doesn’t add onions and peppers. So I’ve posted my variation. I serve it with yellow rice and sour cream, and it’s awesome.

The quilt top is done for Bee Square’s Dr. Seuss quilt contest. I haven’t been able to concentrate on sewing much the past week or so, so it’s taken me a while to get this sewn together. I also couldn’t decide if this would be the final layout, and I played with a lot of different options. In the end I decided that this is the one I liked the best.
