First off I will share my big purchase this week – I have never had a Food Processor – really LOL – I know a lot of you have them most likely. In years gone by I have had choppers of various sorts but never a nice thing like this – and let me tell you it has given me fits since I opened the box! First off for a really good laugh the first thing in the booklet that you read – AFTER you have opened the box is instructions on HOW to open the box!!! really that just seemed so strange as I had to open 3 boxes to get to the booklet!! And – there are no instructions in the book on how to actually put the blades in the machine to use it – I had to search on line for a video to watch which means I have had to save it so I can keep going back to it to watch for the first 6 times I use it until I remember how it works! Ok is it just me or doesn’t it seem like step by step photos should be in the booklet – is everything only on line now? But I have now shredded my first veggies in it and I’m on my way to learn how to be an expert at this LOL
Mike is off 4 days this week in a row as his hours are little different this contract job and so we have been working on the sewing room and in between things I am working on sewing and in the evening. I can only do manual labor like this and yard work for so long before I take a break, lay on the floor and stretch out my back! Then take a longer break and do a little sewing. My job right now is ripping up the old carpet tack things that they place along the wall to hold carpet in place. Mike had ripped the carpet out while I was at my sisters but left this part intact and it is one job I can do so I am taking care of that while he is beginning to work on rewiring the sewing room – new outlets and new lights will be put in. My tools of the trade:
So when I wasn’t working in the sewing room or trying to figure out how my food processor worked I got some sewing done in the living room.
Midnight Garden is coming along nicely – although it is hard to see in the photo only the green is left to stitch down and part of that is finished.
I started to chain piece more sashing for the Scrappy Stars.
And I purchased this blue wide back from Hancock’s of Paducah for the back of the Scrappy Stars from the sales area on line. I was thinking ahead for when quilting starts – I always try to buy as much of the quilt on sale as I can and when I saw the wide backs on sale — now was the time to get the backing.
