no snow pictures

So boring.  We are so snow -weary and there is more due tonight and tomorrow.  Happily, I was able to get out today to take my grandsons to lunch -- but tomorrow, I cancelled my appointment and do not plan to move.  Car in garage.

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.

I'm liking that quilt and glad you have time to work on while you're recovering. Happy Birthday to Miss Emma tomorrow. I know the 18th was Marty's too. And it's still mine, of course. Be well, take care. xoxo

Ha ha I am working on a monochromish quilt, also inspired by the same source...although I LOVE the snow. I have an excuse to stay inside to color. Thanx for the saffron tip.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Here in northeast Ohio we got almost 6 more inches of snow last night. The sun is peeking out now! All the schools are closed again and I ended up walking to work because none of the streets in my neighborhood were plowed. I have an Eclipse and it is so low to the ground that 6" is a problem. Sewing is a cure all so keep it up!

I love the colors of this piece. I figured out the inspiration.
