Instead, I made soup: Ina Garten's Ribollita recipe was the starting point but I used dried chick peas with the beans and left out the kale and whatever other green stuff she mentioned because I didn't have any and wasn't about to go out and get some. Instead, I used cabbage, which was just fine. And I skipped the bean-soaking routine and used my trusty pressure cooker. The soup was done in 40 minutes. Anyway, it was delicious and I just had some (again) because it is late and I am cold.
Yes, I actually did a little stitching today. I'm working on another graffiti piece and am not sewing straight lines. I got out my free motion foot, dropped the feed dogs, and am doing some very simple stuff that you really can't see. That is the point: to add texture and not see the stitching. Works for me.
I had a little fun playing around with Benjamin Moore's paint color picker on-line. I have to get the kitchen painted and have big samples of 3 yellows. Narrowed it down to two and wanted to look at one more that I don't have - so I used the computer. Did it help?
You tell me. Here is the current color -- sort of a greyed-down blue/green. followed by three yellows, all of which look the same to me.
Maybe they are the same and I just forgot to save all the different ones. Sigh...I'll have to go buy a couple of quarts and play around. meantime, off to bed.
