Cooking while sewing

I made a big pot of homemade Chicken and noodles. Yes I make my own noodles. I called my Mom and she came out to eat with us. She enjoys home cooked meals, but hates to cook. I cooked the meat and veggies while I was adding the borders on the bright quilt. I have a recipe to make noodles with the food processor and then you roll out and cut to size. Delish!

I went into night to stitch a little and I made some of the telephone pages for the piano key borders. I have all these little pieces. so what do you do with them. Well you stitch them together and square them up. They are 4.5 inches square when I trimmed them up. What am I going to do with them Who knows, but it is using up more craps. As we say the scraps make scraps. I thought I would clean up a few small piles every couple days and see how far they get me. Maybe centers of star blocks maybe sashed and maybe 4 patches. As I get a few more done and decide what to do with them I will let you know. Might be a surprise to me too. 

I have been up since 3:30 am and not taken a nap so I think my time today was spent pretty well. Hopefully I sleep some tonight. Chris
