At least my Kitchen floor is clean!

As I’m mopping up the tomato splatters on the kitchen floor this morning, I’m thinking about all my unfinished projects and my lack of blogging. Mopping has a way of giving me plenty of time to think.. kind of like chain-piecing does. Unfortunately, sometimes my thinking is rather random and circular. Here’s an example of how the thought process might go…
“I really should blog. It’s been days. But I’m feeling like a bad blogger. And not very good at the writing part of it. And there aren’t any new or finished projects to talk about. What should I talk about? I really need to finish that binding. But I want to work on my block-of-the-month quilt. I wonder if it’s considered a modern quilt, or a traditional quilt? My mom thinks I’m a traditional quilter. But Carolyn at work thinks I’m a modern quilter. I don’t really feel like I fall into either category. I’m just a sewer who likes to make things… a maker of things. That’s what I am. Not an artist or a quilter. Just someone who likes to keep my hands busy. Hmmm, I wonder how that salsa that we made last night tastes. Rats. I really need to go buy some chips. Note to self: buy chips! Oh yeah. And eggs. What time is it? …”
Okay. See? Random thought rambling turned into a blog post. Lame. Sorry. I’ve added a lovely chair quilt* photo to keep you all occupied.
The tomato splatters are from the salsa that we canned last night after I got home from work. Rebecca, back on my Preserving post, suggested using Mrs. Wages salsa seasoning mix. Their web site says that it is only sold at Walmart in this area. But, Walmart isn’t within my normal circle of routine. So we tried the Spicy Tomato Salsa from the Complete Book of Home Preserving by Ball. After I went out and bought some chips we ate some. It was surprisingly good! Messy to make. But good to eat. And not really spicy. More like the equivalent of mild supermarket jar salsa.
*Oh, and the Chair Quilt above was made by lucyellen. She made a chair quilt for each of the DQS9 swap mamas. How exceedingly generous is that? I’ve been coveting one of her chair quilts since my very first round with the Doll Quilt Swap. I think it looks absolutely happy and content next to my other doll quilts, don’t you?
My binding still isn’t done. Maybe later today after I get off the computer? At least my kitchen floor is clean. That is, until the cat comes in with muddy paws.
