……..how many quilts I have and what I do with them. I have a large walk in wardrobe and some quilts are stored in there on the top shelf. They were getting messy and looking seriously like they were going to topple down on top of me. Thursday I got them all down to sort, refold and put back tidy. I counted them, thirty seven quilts.
As I sit in the lounge and write this I can see eleven quilts. We have twenty five quilt tops waiting to be quilted. There are quilts hanging in other rooms and on beds; today I found four more in the airing cupboard. I’m beginning to think if I a had serious count up I might reach a hundred.
A girl can never have too many quilts, right?
Sunday lunch today, Honey glazed chicken and bacon bites. I’m popping up a photo from the recipe writer’s blog Kayotic Kitchen
It looked so good I had eaten half of mine before I thought of a photo. This recipe is very nice. When I make it again I will buy shaved bacon, it would be easier to wrap around the chicken.
A little while ago I found Mum’s old watch in a drawer.I remember when Mum purchased it. Those were the days when people proudly spoke of how many jewels their watch had. This one has fifteen. Mum wore this watch every day , every where – even to the cow shed when she was milking cows. It was not working and a tad worse for wear.
I took Mum’s watch to Pilbrows Watchmaker here in Taupo. They cleaned it, got it ticking again and sourced a new strap just like the old one.A nice family treasure to have restored and timely that I have it back in time for Mother’s Day.
Thanks for the memories Mum.
