My sewing room looks like a cyclone hit it, but out of the mess I've managed to make a start on the new landscape....
And....Resident Chef made a most excellent soup last night for our supper. This recipe is an original and I think he outdid himself!
- There's an interesting discussion HERE about old photos and the collection thereof. The comments are quite interesting and well worth a read.
- HERE's another of my 'awwwww' things.
- THIS looks like a really nice bag pattern.
- And another 'awwwww' thing HERE.
Today's quote is from Neil Gaiman..."May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some good books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live only as you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself"
Your "start" is already amazing--love the snow flecked side of the barn and the skies...nice work...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you! I'm having fun with this one.Delete
Sounds as if resident chef really threw everything in there! I expect you have enough to go back to, as well. Good stuff.ReplyDelete
I suppose it could more commonly be called 'Kitchen Sink Soup' because he used up odds and sods. And yes, there's enough for several more meals.Delete
Wow! What a great start. The only way you can play in the snow and not be cold.ReplyDelete
This is the best kind of snow as far as I'm concerned!Delete
Nice start. The photo website is interesting.ReplyDelete
The landscape is at the point where it more or less changes every hour.Delete
I went through all our photos before we moved here and now I just keep ones that I know might be worth looking at over the years....people, not pictures of flowers and Christmas trees!
Great start on the landscape and the soup sounds amazing.ReplyDelete
The landscape is coming along nicely. And yes, the soup IS amazing!Delete
love that bag pattern, useful size.ReplyDelete
Glad you found something in the links that you like!Delete
That's a great start. Sometimes you have to make a mess to make beautiful things!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the recipe, I think the guys would like that one.
I'm a pro at making messes!Delete
Let me know what you think if you make the soup.
Loving your new 'start' Mary Anne. Really like that you have used fabric with the old wooden tiles that used to be used for building/insulating chalets in the mountains. They use them in Switzerland too and it reminds me of the chalets there. Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Thanks Christine. I think the original building in the photos is somewhere in the Prairie provinces in Canada so perhaps the builder took inspiration from the Swiss.Delete
I love the art piece so far!ReplyDelete
A messy sewing room is a sign of a busy mind that's been working. The soup sounds delicious. Seaweed is something we rarely find around here, if at all.ReplyDelete
Our #2 daughter-in-love is Taiwanese and she and our son gifted Resident Chef with a big box of Asian cooking essentials and seaweed was one of the ingredients. We love Asian food (most of it anyway) so it inspired this soup.Delete
