Slow but steady progress is happening with my DWR top.
Spare moments are spent playing with my pieces, assembling arcs until I have time to stitch them together.
There is no rush, just enjoying the journey with these pretty fabrics!
Yesterday was spent with dear friends at a Mexican Cooking Class...the aprons say it all!
I seemed to be on play-doh duty...I am quite good at making tortillas now...some were quite optimistically called "rustic", but I was getting pretty good at it in the end. Then I was beer-battering fish for fish tacos...more yum! A bit of background now....in Australia tacos seem to be those mince and lettuce numbers inspired by the contents of a yellow box...not very tasty...I have never been much of a fan! When I was in Houston last year we went to the most amazing Mexican restaurant recommended by some local ladies Loz and I met at the Quilt Show. I then tried fish tacos...so delicious, I am definitely a fan! Now I can cook my own!
We then had chocolate Mexican icecream (flavoured with cinnamon...mmmm) topped with spun sugar...it was a fabulous class because then we ate it all! Needless to say we were very full! Salad for dinner.
It really was a fun thing to do with friends.
And lastly, something to make you smile...
On Friday night I was sewing with friends. Cristie pulled out this pretty finished hexie and linen beauty...we laughed at the contrast in the two projects. And to think mine is an attempt at "pretty"!
