Fired Up and Ready to Go

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

I spent the last two days getting stuff put away and cleaning up my office and studio after my 6 week online workshop frenzy with Liz Berg. I still have to do my final project, but I couldn’t even think in the mess I had created. Mr C came down and swept, vacuumed and washed the floors in my studio.


Yesterday, I went bopping out the back door to take Maggie for a walk and tripped over a package on the step. It was from my quilt daughter in Germany, Kristin. It contained a beautiful Polish pottery cross. It is not like any other I have in my collection so I was thrilled to see it. I also loved the card which was designed by Victoria Cole of Two Hand Design.


The family came over for dinner tonight.


I made another tagine dish. This was lamb with lots of Moroccan spices, butternut squash, carrots, peppers, onions and apricots. It was sooo good, served over couscous.


We had strawberries and grapes for dessert, accompanied by Waldmeister gummy gnomes, which were in the package from Kristin, for Mia and Miles. They have the flavor of woodruff, which is used in Germany to flavor May wine.


We have had lots of sun over the past week or so. It rained quite hard yesterday, but who cares when you get sun breaks, too.
