Three things to be happy about:
(1) Fresh flowers on your table
(2) a hot cup of coffee
(3) a good movie
Sometimes I like to try new things, especially if I think it's good for me.
At the Giant I saw this "thick and rough" oatmeal by Silver Palate - whole grain milled oats, double toasted in granola ovens, richer flavor, rougher texture, yadda yadda yadda.
I figured if that couldn't do it, it can't be done! So... why not give it a try?
Well ... when I prepared it according to the directions, it certainly was thick - and DRY! It was like eating ground up cardboard.
Moving right along.
Lately I haven't been able to wrap my mind totally around quilting, even though I love it, isn't that strange?
Then I had an "ah-hah!" moment - why not lay out just the black part, get it flowing the way I want it, then lay out the white (or bottom) part.
I'm working without a pattern, so that's one reason I'm having these challenges. But the important thing is now I have it at a point where I can go forward without a lot of drama.
Gotta go - time for breffus! I think the second house from the right could move down just a wee bit though ... sew forth and sew on
