This cook book was a gift from a very good friend. Neither one of us cooks much anymore but she laughed and said she enjoyed reading it and I have too. It was as good as a novel and took about the same amount of time. I read recipe after recipe. That baked Alaska on the front looks Delicious. I haven't made baked Alaska in years but if I remember it was not that hard. Maybe I should try it again and get the girls excited about it.
Now to the plan... I plan to finish all my bindings and never cut a quilt without cutting the binding again. I also plan to really start on my list. Not just add to it as it is getting out of control. I am going to do a black and white quilt for my daughter to take to college--that is what she is asking for--I don't have a pattern yet for this so if you have seen a great black and white one let me know.
This quilt by Heather Mulder Peterson is on my list and soon to be on my cutting table.....Unless I begin with
this gorgeous Snibble. I even have this very fabric. Carrie told me what it was and even where I could find some, what a nice lady. It was a season old by the time the book came out. It is an April Cornell fabric--I can't remember the name. Speaking of Carrie, I am crazy about her new line of fabric, fresh palette.
Then on my list for the last 5 years is this Meet me in Paris quilt by Johnalee . I think I am intimidated to begin cutting all those fan blades.
Wish me luck because you know there will be a ton of distractions in blogland and then there will be the quilt retreat at Bryce Canyon and then of course the Quilt Walk.
Happy New Year! Enjoy!
