Then I enrolled in a cooking class which met once a week and just finished up last Wednesday. We are lucky enough to have a trained professional chef here in our small community, and the classes were fabulous. I love to cook and was amazed at how many tricks I learned in class. Each week we made an appetizer, entree and dessert. I am not a dessert lover or baker so the desserts were a challenge for me. I had never used phyllo pastry before!
This is a quick charity quilt, paper pieced ice cream cones. I still need to baste it and quilt it. My local guild gives quilts to the local sheriff's department and they distribute them to children who are in distress. We do about 100 quilts per year, which is quite an accomplishment for a guild with only 15 members.
No progress has been made on Esther's Forget Me Not blocks. I have 5 of them done and plan to get back into that project after the holidays. I do my hand applique in the evenings and I have been so busy lately that I am tired by then.
That's it for this week! I hope you have all been well and keeping busy.
