There's a few more little cross stitcheries completed and you'll be hugely relieved I'm sure to know that there's only about 5 or 6 left to do. Then it's on to discovering if my 'idea' for putting them together is going to work. The fabric for the backing arrived yesterday so I have all the 'pieces' and just have to play about with finishing the little stitcheries into mini (very mini!!) little ornaments. I know what I want to do but it will be a challenge to get the sizing right.
And just to prove that life here at Chez Magpie never lacks for some form of excitement, have a gander at Resident Chef's toes (I know....who knew you'd be treated to a birds eye view of such things!)....
Funny how they tend to lose a battle waged with a bowl of homemade oatmeal. Nothing is broken fortunately but they certainly are colourful!!
And....just because I thought you'd want to know, here's the recipe for the offending oatmeal...
RESIDENT CHEF's OATMEAL RECIPE
Mix together and cook. He uses a rice cooker and times it at about 15-20mins. You can also cook it on top of the stove for probably the same amount of time. Store in refrigerator until needed and then serve either hot OR cold.
Today's quote..."An injury is not just a process of recovery - it's a process of discovery" (and in Resident Chef's case? He 'discovered' it's better to hold onto a slippery bowl with TWO hands).
