Fabric and Sauce

Good day peeps! Well, really it's night time here now but I sure do wish it was still day! There never are quite enough hours in the day.

This weekend I managed to finish cutting up my Denyse Schmidt stash into the pieces I need to start sewing a new quilt top together. I'm excited about getting this one started...and then finished! lol
Feeling inspired by Mary, I just *had* to sew a Tallahassee block together.
This one is going to be a pillow cover. Seriously love this block! I cut pieces to make another one. However, after piecing this one, I kinda lost steam. All the piecing involved wore me out. Once I'm feeling it again, I'm for sure going to make another one though!
This week's fwqal blocks. Evening Star block 31 on the left and Farmer's Daughter block 32 on the right. Whew! I am surprised I have been able to keep up with the block making for this QAL!
On Saturday I was feeling in the mood for some cooking. I continued on in Giada De Laurentiis' cookbook Everyday Italian, and made her marinara. It made about 8 cups so I was able to freeze a bunch to have on hand. It's delicious!
I hope everyone has a great week!
