Thursday check-in

One of the lists I belong to has a Thursday check-in so that even if you haven't posted all week, at least on Thursday we catch up with each other.  This is my Thursday blog check-in.  I won't tell you where the week has gone, but to say it has been rather busy is an understatement of the first order.

Today I made linguini with white clam sauce from scratch with clams in the shell.  NOt difficult but somehow it took every pot in the house.  I thought it was excellent; the other person at the table said it didn't do anything for him.  Ok.  Then starting at 11:00, I baked. Therapy baking instead of therapy sewing.  Did some of that, too.  This morning I finished recovering a pillow for my chair.  Sewed the fourth side by hand; easier than struggling with the machine.
 While I was cleaning out the basement closet I found this bushel basket from the year One that I had forgotten about  Insteadof fleurs, rolled-up fabric.

It is stil Wednesday night to me, even though it is already Thursday.  G'night.

We had left over Linguini last night, no fresh clams, canned, also one can of small diced tomatoes and 1/2 lb. of shrimp cleaned but still shelled... messy to eat but less work for me and very delicious. Lots of garlic, hot pepper flakes and theme. Yummy. Too busy with teaching to do any sewing or baking. Love your basket of cloth.
