Limited Sewing Time

I do love my family but . . I am not used to having everyone around ALL the time! Vince is off work til Thursday. Chad is out of school til 1/4. I'm cooking and washing and cleaning and cooking and cleaning and cooking and washing! I had hoped to finish a top yesterday and I got one row done. So far, today, I've made one block. Deadlines are not going to be met at this rate! Last night I went in the quilting room (for time alone!) and quilted a log cabin quilt for the tornado victims. I miss my laptop terribly! We smoked 2 chickens yesterday. Oh, they were so good. I took the leftover meat off the bone, froze some of it and will make a gumbo with some of it. Doesn't that sound yummy? Might do that tomorrow. Today we did a pork butt and had the most delicious pulled pork I've probably ever had. Oh, it was soooo good! Here's a picture of the meat just as we were going to pull it out of the smoker. We really love this little smoker. Last night I found a fabric in the stash that I can use for the backing on one of the tops I've been working on so I'm going to load that on the longarm tonight. More stash being used!! :) Judy

  • Judy,
    The smoker sounds like it was a winner gift! BUT...did the quilts keep it under cover for Vince? Someone asked this earlier!

    As for people under foot...I have unil 1/16 and possibly longer! ARGH!!!!!!!!

    Hugs

  • Laurie, Vince never said anything about the box. Chad and I were laughing about him not noticing and he said "Oh, I noticed .. I just didn't say anything!"

  • Cool, I wondered how it worked... The picture helps... I have only seen an old fashioned (keep adding wood) smoker - & that was on TV !

  • Oh my gosh, that meat looks sooooo good! I love the way it looks! My mouth is just watering looking at it. Hmmm, I may just have to keep this in mind for next year for a gift!

    And your not the only one having a hard time to find time with the computer or sewing! I'm home with 5 others! And a broken dishwasher - so guess who is doing dishes non-stop after 4 teenagers!
