Inching Along

What's so special about the bottom two squares?  They're the LAST ONES!  32 little nine patches may not look like much, but they are HUGE to me.

Quilting time has been dramatically reduced since I had to go gluten free.  Friday Night Sew-Ins have turned into Friday Night Bake-Ins.  At least now I have a few bread recipes worth repeating.  This weekend I made beef stock from scratch since all the commercial stocks contain gluten, and the "beef flavored" broths taste fake.  Did you know Whole Foods charges $16.00/lb. for beef bones?  Insanity!  I need to make friends with a sympathetic butcher!  I used stew cubes from the regular grocery store, and then made Italian Beef with the leftover meat.  All of this has taken time away from quilting.

The good news is that I'm s-l-o-w-l-y getting the hang of GF cooking.  And gradually, I'm reclaiming some time to quilt to my heart's desire.  Life is good!  :)
