They’re Done … Almost
I spent the better part of the week bringing the spoon rests thru to their final slump. All but three. This other one had air bubbles I didn’t like, so it’s in the baby kiln for a flip and fire, along with some murrini nibs. I hope to use the nibs (otherwise ‘useless’) in an up-cycled house warming gift … [Photos to come …]
In the meantime, I’m pretty pleased with my spoons. I have a hard time picking a favorite (or three) …
In the kitchen this week, I made another batch of Instant Pot jam – this one with blackberries and (fresh) mango, frozen pineapple and a touch of shredded coconut (- why? Because I had it!). Yum! Perfect for homemade yogurt! And, we made (a too-large-portion of) Spinach Chicken & Mushroom alfredo sauce (with bok choy and peas – again, because we had them!). Lil Sis came over, so she’ll be leaving with enough corned beef and cabbage and chicken alfredo to bring out the Irish and Italian in her – or to eat well for a week!
I’m slowly reorganizing/cleaning the studio (if you noticed in the spoon rest photo – I managed to clear off much of the coe90 table … Wow!) So, not a whole bunch happened with card making. I did manage to stamp several card fronts to color – maybe at work this weekend???
I’ll leave with a cute pic of Sassy Miss Cowbell (Chloe), who was posing all fierce and guardian-like in between scratching her back on my arborvitae … Meanwhile, RoMama (Rotunda) is growing daily, and getting a wee-bit picky with her food choices. She’s got about 10-12 days to go (give or take) before the babies are due … My beautiful pot-bellied piglets!
Happy weekend everyone! Be safe!!!
