My Reality

First, I am in danger of adding too much to this piece. But, I am having so much fun. It is almost finished.

Secondly, the bridge piece is history. It is never to be seen. I painted the bridges black and took a photo and ugh! The composition is really off. I can use some of the background for small pieces like postcards so it won’t be a total waste. But, I had to admit that it was futile to spend more time on it. Whew! I love facing reality sometimes.

I had a great week-end. I made a delicious meal for the family — chicken tagine with apricots and almonds, couscous, Caesar salad and a delicious Bumble Berry Pie. I used berries from the freezer — raspberries and Marion berries. The chicken was coated with a mixture of cinnamon, ginger and turmeric and it was so beautiful and tasty.

M and M came early so that Steph and Jack could reorganize and clean his office. We watched “Tangled” – so much fun. When they arrived, Mia warned me that she might smell like rabbit.

This is Stewie, the classroom rabbit, which she took care of for the week-end. I stole the photo from Steph’s flickr, hope she doesn’t mind!

    I love this. Wow!
    I am sorry about the bridges — I liked that one. Did you throw it away?

    So, is Bumble Berry just the combination of several of those together?
    Stewie and Mia look very content together.
    Love your Klee piece!

    Love your new quilt. Too bad for the bridge piece. Hope you can recycle some of it.
    I had to google marrionberries! I had never heard about these… 🙂 Do you grow them in your garden?
