I’ve been working on these blanks, to eventually make a custom-request spoon rest … By the time I’m done, I’ll have a whole coffin-kiln load to flatten – and then I’ll have a whole lotta spoon rests (to cut), in what I hope are fun and unique color combinations. I’ve got a blank cooking in the production kiln as I type, and I have one more color combination I want to make. It’s been a while since I’ve fired up the big kiln … I’m excited!
DH is still sick, but showing signs of improving. The Asparagus with Roasted Garlic soup was good. Lil Sis recommended leaving a few bites of asparagus (as it’s a blended soup), if/when we make it again. This week we made egg drop soup and added carrots, spinach and lots of chives. And, we made our own crunchy Wonton noodles. Yum! [I’m sorry for the crummy Fire tablet photos … ]
I have a couple of coe96 vitrigraph stacks together. I’m hoping we can pull at least one pot this week (uhh, later today) … The colors remind me of spring and summer. [Who has cabin fever?!?]
My stamping mojo is in a rut. I colored the flowers from last week’s card fronts. Still no sentiment ideas calling out to me … So, I played with my Super Script ‘hello’ stamp. It’s giving me grief, as it won’t fully make the impression of the ‘H’ unless I quadruple stamp with loads of CPR-style stamping technique. By then things are looking fairly smudgy … Frustrating!
I am excited about my next ‘date’ with our Instant Pot. I plan to make cold start yogurt, as I’ve watched several Youtube videos about it, and feel I’m at ‘expert’ level (enough to try it, anyway …) Followed quickly with a batch of strawberry jam (for DH) and chocolate frozen yogurt – for me! Happy Friday Ya’ll!
