P.S. It’s a somber day here in the States, as we remember the tragic events of September 11. Read my thoughts and where I was that day, here.

Today on the QuiltCast, Amy and I talked all about Quilt Backs (to piece, or not to piece?), Wide (108″) backing fabric, quilting disasters (you really should hear about the time I unpicked a queen size quilt…) and finally, we talked about our go to items in the kitchen.

The kitchen, you say?

Why yes. Because in addition to being quilters and designers, we’re also moms and humans. :) Gotta eat sometime. And staying healthy and balanced is KEY for my creativity to flourish. So. Kitchen tools were our top 5 this week. One of the tools I mentioned that helps save my sanity is this sweet little PDF I use to keep our menu and food choices organized. It’s so nice to have it up where everyone can see it–then they know what they are having for dinner and what their snack choices are without asking me 26 billion times per day. Also, the items I purchase that I need for meals haven’t mysteriously disappeared by the time I need them. Win-Win I say.

Thought I’d share the PDF with you, in the hopes it will make your world just a little more happy. :) And while it’s not quilting related, I figure, if you’re organized in one place, it just frees up time for more sewing, amiright?
