Progress and moving on

The heat wave is over, yaaaay!   The weatherman says it's a front coming down from Canada, so to all our Canadian friends, thanks for the push  :o)

I meant to comment about the edible paper on my retirement cake - it's actually tinted rice paper; doesn't really have a taste though.

This is my latest progress on my wickedly easy quilt:
See all those lovely scrappy strips I trimmed off?  I tossed the first one in the trash, then I thought to myself ...hmmm...  can they be used???

Yes they can, I paired one with two regular strips and it looks great!  I can use these for my 15 minute playtime.  For comparison, the pink strip on the right is 2-1/2" wide.

This begins the second full week of my retirement, and I'm pleased to say that NOT ONCE did I have the urge to jump up and dash to the office.  It's all good, I tell ya.  I'm about to fix my breffus (or brekky) and I really love using this cheese on one of those thin-sliced bagels...
anybody tried it?  It's delicious - a bowl of strawberries and maybe a little yogurt and you're all set!

Cooler air, wicked trimmings, laughing cow on a bagel - it can't get much better than this!  Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. I hope they have laughing cow at my grocery store. It looks delicious!

  2. I LOVE laughing cow cheese. I make wraps with it. A tortilla, the cheese and a slice of turkey, lettuce and tomato. YUMMY stuff.

  3. Laughing cow is in my house, too. Oh I almost fainted when you said you threw those scraps away. There is lots of potential in that beautiful pile. So glad you saw it. Enjoy your day.

  4. I have that box in my fridge right now - yummy!

  5. I am hooked on laughing cow and those new thin sliced bagels are DIVINE!

    Have a Great Day
    Peace and Blessings

  6. Linda, you are cruel. I am reading this at 1:45 in the morning and that Laughing Cow and a bagel sound so good!!

    You are a woman after my own heart...I just can't throw away those scraps!! Great job on figuring out how to use them!!
