Happy Boxing Day!
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day. DH and I had a low key day, filled with yummy food. Breakfast started with these - Michigan blueberries that I froze myself back in July
Thawed and drowned in batter
and served with thick cut hickory smoked bacon.
Breakfast was a tad on the late side since we did presents first (I'll share those with you all in another post), and rather filling, so lunch was a bit of cheese and crackers with a spinach artichoke dip. Light on purpose so as not to spoil our appetites for dinner. The timing of dinner's parts precluded any picture taking, especially since it was rudely interrupted by me dropping/breaking a cereal bowl on the floor. The DH cleaned up that mess while I keep the cooking going. We enjoyed Bison ribeye steaks, grilled on the cast iron grill/griddle pan that was a Christmas gift from last year, rainbow trout, and a few side. YUM!
Today, it's about laundry and getting a bit of sewing underway. I took some time on Christmas afternoon to convert the Mystery Quilts Clue #4 and Clue #5 measurements and do some cutting.
These are my Clue #4 And Clue #5 units underway.
Check out Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Link Up to see how everyone else's Mystery Quilt is coming on.
My units probably won't get finished until Thursday, at the earliest, as there are some family things to attend to. My aunt passed away, with the wake being held today and the funeral tomorrow. It was a blessing that she went peacefully after having a severe stoke a few weeks ago.
By Thursday, I will relish some simple, repetitive sewing to calm the soul. We are having some truly frigid temps, with brutal wind chills and some snow forecasted for the end of the week - ICK!! The thought of spending quiet time, in a toasty warm studio, is divine. Oh, and I've been saving the new Season of 'The Crown' on Netflix to watch while sewing.
