Over the weekend I nursed my cold and am feeling better, thank you. Made lots of soup and cooked a gorgeous risotto (as promised) for Friday night's dinner. Actually, thee were enough leftovers for Saturday dinner, as well. So easy - you should never be intimidated by cooking risotto: you can't go wrong. I think the secret ingredient is saffron -- and I am now out of that wonderful spice, so shall have to restock. Fortunately, it doesn't take much to make a difference to anything you cook. More precious (and expensive) than gold.
For the last few days i have been working on my bulletin board cum design wall in the sewing room at home Pulled out some sewn together strips from four years ago and started from there. Still in the adding/throwing at the wall/contemplating stage with a long way to go. The picture is not very good and the color not entirely accurate, but can you guess where the inspiration is coming from?
It has felt so good to sit down and sew, and tomorrow I plan more of same. It is supposed to hit the 50's over the weekend so maybe I will get to the studio next week. Meantime, happy to be in and warm.
