Not a pretty sight!

Too much sewing - not enough jus-plain-keepin' house!

When the drip tray the stove burner element actually spews flames, and you're thinking of the options "Shall I USE the fire extinguisher, is this flame big enough, shall I let it burn itself out," it's time to do some cleaning!

Some of you might be feeling a teensy bit smug right now, knowing that this has not YET happened to you or you are thinking "my gosh, someone is a worse housekeeper than I." I have definitely been avoiding some unpleasant cleaning must-do's!

Sooooo, 2 hours BEFORE leaving for Quilt Retreat, I attacked the job and even made a rush drive to buy oven cleaner.

And hour and a half later, it's DONE, CLEAN, and still had time to gather up my stuff before Quilt Retreat!!! Yeah - life is good!

Good for you! Hope it didn't take the whole 2 hours! (I'm afraid mine would so that's why I don't start.)

Another idea for dousing flames in the kitchen, especially grease, is baking soda. I always keep a big box handy. It's good for scrubbing the oven also.

Guilt free quilting time! LOL
