History Quilter Podcast Episode 32 Today's History

Hello Wednesday - it's already Wednesday?

It has been over a month since I recorded a podcast but thankfully this past Saturday I had the afternoon (mostly) to myself and took the opportunity to pull out my microphone and talk.  If you are a listener you will  hear me speak of how I usually start the recording process approximately 5-10 times before the right one "sticks"...what I mean is I'll start talking and maybe 10 seconds, 30 seconds or even 6 minutes in, I'll come to a point where I think, "this stinks - time to start again".  Did not do that this past Saturday - this episode is a one time through recording.  Felt great too.

So, my latest episode of The History Quilter Podcast Episode 32 where I talk about "Today's History" is now available on Podbean, iTunes and Stitcher Radio.  No time for quilting history research for this episode - it is an episode of what was going on in my life, on that day.

iPhone Podcast Listeners:
If you are an iPhone user and either have the iPhone 5 or have upgraded your iOS on your iPhone 4 to 6.0 then you will either see (or may have to download from the App Store) a new Podcast App (FREE) where you can collect all of the podcasts you listen too without having to go into the Music App and search around.  You can also subscribe to podcasts directly from your iPhone.  A great new feature - now if they would only bring back Google Maps. Go here to learn more about the Podcasts App.

I talked about how well the Tofu-and-Vegetable Tacos with Eggplant Ancho Spread turned out. Go here to see my photos.
I also talked about making Mortadella, Egg and Brioche Sandwiches from the Saturday/Sunday September 21, 2012 edition of The Wall Street Journal.  I'll be making these soon.

I also talked about making Roasted Acorn Squash Salad with Warm Goat Cheese Rounds from Foster's Market.  I've got an Acorn Squash waiting for this recipe sitting on my kitchen counter.

Time to get back to schoolwork.  Thanks for sticking with me during the "dry periods".  I'm looking forward to getting re-acquainted with my sewing machine on Friday.

Have a great Wednesday,


  1. I enjoyed the podcast, although I start blinking out at vegetables and perk up when I hear about pie. After watching "Weight of the Nation" on HBO, I'm not sure that I'll be eating anything again any time soon.

    I wanted to be a teacher, but figured I could not support myself .. maybe a 2nd career? Thanks for sharing the journey.

    All the best,

  2. Great podcast. Personally, I am interested in all the teacher stuff. Very different than when I trained. You will be glad you know your Standards, tho here in Ohio they change often enough that it is daunting to keep up.

  3. Thanks for the head's up! I'll try & listen soon!

  4. Enjoyed the podcast, even the teaching stuff I didn't understand! I'm so impressed how you do so much! Love the sounds of the squash salad...mmm. And also, I was hoping to hear how your cousin(?) liked the tshirt quilt - ? Your son's quilt sounds really lovely!

  5. Congratulations on your student teaching assignment for next semester! I'm looking forward to seeing the progress on A's quilt, and glad he's having a hand in it. Miss you!

  6. Just listening to some back episodes....#30. My friend had just gotten Sew Serendipity, and I had fallen in love with it. Then you mentioned it, AND who the author was, which I hadn't put together in my head when I was at my friend's house. So I just had to hop over to Amazon and buy myself a copy right away!

    I have seen a cigar silk quilt, I am pretty sure it was in a museum, and I it seems I have known about them forever....Love you podcast! Thanks for the time you put into it. Fran

  7. I loved the podcast. Listened twice actually. :)I am glad you hear you got a school near you to S.T. at.

    I can't wait to see the quilt for your son. I love Julie's patterns. I just got her book last month.
