and it was eggs for dinner - but not just plain eggs, but omething that had intrigued me when I saw the recipe on the Internet.
The recipe called for chard, which I didn't have, and jalapeno, which I also didn't have. So I used laticino kale and dried hot peppers. I did have fresh spinach, eggs, garlic, oregano, and cumin (which I can't cook without). In fact, if I had to choose the five ingredients i could not cook without they would be garlic, onions, lemon, cumin, and (random, depending on the recipe).
Yum. I feel so much better now. Time for a cup of tea and a tiny piece (or two) of something sweet.Then, fortified, I will go back to my sewing room and either continue quilting the piece I need to finish, or leave it for tomorrow and play around with something else. At this late hour (well, late for me) I have to decide between rotary cutter and sewing machine.
In the meantime, I have been quilting the piece I've been dithering about for a few weeks. I suspect I am not awake enough to continue this tonight. But here is a bit of it. You know me -- this is about as free-motion as I get. LOL. But even using the edge of the foot, it is far from accurate or perfect. Eh - life is too short to worry about accurate or perfect. I am neither and I like it just fine.
I am off to Houston for Quilt Market on Oct 24. Today, for the first time ever, I actually made a list ahead of time of the booths/vendors I need to visit. I am only there for 2-½ days and time is of the essence. For decades, I have been using the same batting and have been very happy with it. However, this time around I would like to test a few different battings from some other manufacturers.
If this is my big excitement, you can imagine what the rest of my life is like). Change is good -- or at least, experimentation.
On second thought, I am not going to sew - I am going to go to bed. Tomorrow, another day of cleaning and throwing out - and reorganizing what I am keeping. I may actually be able to take a photo or two of the studio. We'll see. It always looks worse before it looks better. Just like life.
