Snow day projects

The snow day this week I finished Jamie’s tshirt quilt.

This is the back.

Last weeks snow day I made this quilt.

This is the back.  I didn’t plan on making any extra quilts this spring, but sometimes you have to be a team player at a new job.

The road less traveled

image

The only thing I don’t like about my new job is the drive.  It normally takes me 25-30  min.  to get back and forth to work.  The fastest way to work is using the interstate system.  I’ve found an alternate route that takes me past hay, sod and beef farms. It only takes about 5 min. longer, but I’m sure it cuts down on my stress level.  Yesterday when I drove home in the snow it seemed extra powerful.

This is what 3 to 4.5″ of snow looks like in our front yard.

This is what the backyard looks like.

 

Time for cooking

image

 

I’m enjoying my new job.  Some of the things we’ve made are rolled out sugar cookies, spaghetti, we made the sauce from scratch, brownies, pizza, pretzels, taco salad and fruit smoothies.

Here’s some of the pretzels.

We made pumpkin pies, starting from a raw pumpkin.  We roasted the seeds, then roasted the pumpkin, made the filling from the roasted pumpkin, and made pie crusts from scratch.

I had a new friend from church I met at Thanksgiving Day in the City, come and talk about being a baker.  She brought cupcakes and had edible sugar my students could sprinkle on the cupcakes.  She’s coming back in March to teach them how to decorate.

I meant to take pictures of everything we cooked, but sometimes I got busy and forgot.

Special Guest Help

My mom was here to help with the last day of our sewing class for the girl scouts.

All the girls made a skirt, and got them finished.  I’m glad my mom was here to help out.  It would have taken another Saturday to finish.

This is Jemma’s skirt.  I was hopeing to get a picture of all the girls in their skirt, but they all got done at different times.
