Another Busy Weekend
I continue to embroider the Mexican blouse, but I only have two butterflies and three flowers to go. After that comes the crochet border and the assembly. The cottons were on sale at Joann's today so I bought more blouse lengths. By the time I am done with these tops I should be able to embroider a whole lot better, but who am I kidding, by the time I can really embroider well I will be so burned out on it that I will probably wait many years before I try it again. Such is the way my mind works.
In book news, I am re-reading Miriam's Kitchen, a book I love. I first bought this book up north at Powell's books in Portland, but I finished it and gave it to January. I found it recently at the library and am enjoying it again. It even has some recipes. I am listening (while I embroider) to a book on tape called Mistress of the Art of Death, sort of a female Quincy in the middle ages. Strange, but good so far.
Now I am off to make Sunday dinner which will be goodies from the garden and farmer's market served with tuna cakes (made like crab cakes but cheaper). And since I put so many parentheses in this entry, I will end with one (had to look up how to spell parentheses).
