At lunch time, I chopped and roasted a tray of veggies—tomatoes, red peppers, zucchini, onion, and garlic sprinkled with sea salt, basil, oregano and no salt herb mix.
After roasting it went into the pot with some broth and frozen corn. I semi puréed it using a hand held blender.
I’m craving a grilled cheese on whole grain bread to go with.
Last Saturday at our guild UFO a generous quilter was giving a workshop on making a Simply Charming Twister Tote.
I was so inspired by all the themes and varieties, I decided to try it myself. She’s doing it again this Saturday. In the sewing room I’ve been cutting 30 5 inch batik squares to be sewn in rows, 5 by 6 to prepare for cutting the twister blocks.
I chose 3 fabrics for bottom, handles and pockets.
When I need to rest my back, I can put my feet up and do some knitting. I’m working on a merino wool Gingerbread Hat, pattern found on Ravelry.
The yarn is a pure merino superwash worsted weight, Mecha, by Malabrigo in Peru. I picked it up in Amherst, NS last week atDeanne Fitzpatrick’s Studio.
I thought you might like a look at the books I’m reading right now.
And finally this magazine.
