Saturday sewing

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Saturdays seem to be a bit of a ‘catch up on everything’ sort of day these days, a hectic rush around to make sure the logistics of family life are running smoothly….food in the fridge, laundry chugging along, schedules synched….and of course end up being the best day to see friends.

Thankfully I managed to squeeze in a most delightful hour to myself between doing all that and starting to cook dinner for the friends who are coming this evening.

My first priority this weekend were Floh’s blocks for Sew Euro-bee-an…

Heavenly! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE wonky stars and I really like the kona ash background. In fact my request for the Stitch Tease bee was the very same….and I should be able to show you the finished result in a month or so. Wonky stars are really easy and such fun to sew…cool and quirky. They always make me smile ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cooking this evening isn’t going to be much of an ordeal because dear husband has offered to take over doing the meat and sauce and came up with a menu that was simple and easy….

Here’s what we’re having…

  • Lambs lettuce with mushrooms, bacon bits and croutons and a balsamic vinaigrette (made by husband)
  • Veal steaks with a balsamic orange sauce, with pappardelle noodles, roasted carrots and steamed asparagus
  • My trusty make in advance chocolate mousse ย served with rasberries and raspberry coulis

I think that will do, don’t you? At least nobody will go home hungry!!!

So things are up date, my world is under control, I’ve had enough sleep and even better, tomorrow is Sunday and other than a snowy run in the morning, there is NOTHING at all on the agenda – and I guess you can imagine what that means!!

Hope you’re having as much fun as I am this weekend!
