Saturday Morning Ritual

I woke up at 5:30am on Saturday, naturally with no alarm might I add, and trekked to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee for the day. I'm thankful for a coffee pot with an auto-brew feature because how can anyone focus enough to make a pot of coffee before they've had their first cup? After that I was busy in my crafting space for 3 hours cutting fabric for a new quilt project and catching up on tv shows.

It always amazes me how long it takes to cut out pieces for a quilt, I think this is part of the reasoning for my new love affair with pre-cuts. This past Friday I was at Quilter's Corner Store and bought a layer cake of Tula Pink's "Nest" collection released in Spring of 2008. As usual, I love Tula Pink's color choice, subtle patterns, and fun details.

Speaking of love affairs, I am in love with patterns from Sweet Jane Quilts. I'm doing another one of her patterns, this time from her book. I haven't started sewing it together yet but once I do I fully expect it will fly together quickly. I haven't totally decided if this one will stay with me or be donated to a charity auction.

Tonight I'm looking forward to another meal from the slow cooker. Today's experiment: Throw a whole chicken in the slow cooker on low for 9 hours with some seasonings and hope it's as amazing as people on All Recipes say it is.
