  1. i received a bunch of unfinished tops from my mother in law after she passed away. Before I quilted them i hung in a separate part of the basement and fabreezed them. The air helps. The other thing is to put in a box/ bag with dryer sheets. then change the dryer sheets every other day. I don't take client tops that are stinky. I am allergic to cats and smoke. But I knew I needed to finish MIL's and pass on to everyone. once they were done and binded, I washed the hell out of them and they looked great.

  2. Yeahhh Success!! Dinner was great. Altough the cooking faries were really giving me greif. I did burn the potates. We managed to salvage with butter. Who would have though that i had all the ingredients in the freezer. I would totally do it again, but this time use real proschuto not Bacon.

    here is the recipe

    What a great evening. Our Dear Friends older kids stopped by for appetizers and cocktails. Mike's Oldest is in the Army and was home unexpectedly for Christmas. Please pray for him as he shipps back out next week.

    We are truly blessed to have friends and family like that.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  3. Like something out of National Lampoon - Christmas vacation, we are having our dear friends over for dinner later today. I pulled the roast out to season it and get it ready. I unwrapped it and it went bad.

    Things that are going through my head . . .

    Oh My.

    Uh Oh!

    "Fudge (only I didn't say fudge)"

    this will make a really funny story sometime

    so how much do you confess to your guests???

    can I salvage it???

    eeeewwwwwww, no not salvageable

    What is Plan B??????????

    So instead of a delicious Roast Beast (now a Day Family tradition for 16 years) - I'll have to do another for new Years instead. . . We are going to have a traditional italian dinner made with all the fixens out of the freezer, cubbord and fridge.

    Thank goodness for online recipes, I think we will have Chicken Saltimbocco with roasted yukon gold potatoes (those didn't go bad)

    Wish me luck and prayers!!!!!

  4. I come home from work and ask my DH, "so how was your day?" By the 4th time ( he is sooooo patient), he reminds me that i've already asked him that question a couple of times already. Then he says . . . " are you okay, how was your day - need to talk???"

    Talk??? Hey I am happy I found my way home? kids names? Yeah we'll call them Newton (yes he's been in doggie heaven for 3.5 years).

    ahhhhhhhhhhh

    Aging as gracefully as I can. i figure any time I am on this side of the daisy's it is a good day. off to Milwaukee tomorrow for work. Have a great week!
