E's: I made this bag back in the fall of 2008. It's from Purl Bee's Apple Picking Tote . It's great for going shopping for groceries or just carrying loads of stuff. I had the chicken fabric forever and could not think of what to do with it. It made perfect handles for this bag.

Food, GLORIOUS Food!
Okinawa soba with some sauteed yuchoy, negi and garlic with bibazu and togarashi.
Pork cutlet with warm salad (roasted asparagus, garlic, carrots over greens)
Artichokes - prepping for stuffing.
Stuffing mixture: mushrooms (minced), garlic, parsley, grated pecorino romano. salt pepper.
Steaming for 30 - 40 min over water and white wine.
I finally started to work on finishing my quilt. The first one I ever started (and never completed). What got me moving to finally finish it? I bought myself an even feed foot for my sewing machine. Yay! So, you can see in the image below that I'm working in my kitchen and had just ironed the binding strips.
After quilting the layers together, you can see here I just finished squaring up my piece , again. The back of the quilt is a one fabric/pattern.
This shows the green binding after I completed my first mitered corner.
Voila, the finished piece. I decided to hand sew (blind stitch) the binding onto the back instead of machine stitch. I'm so glad it's over. Now, I can start new projects without the guilt.

New fairy tale fabric
E's: I took my mom to my favorite fabric store, Purl Patchwork, to buy some fabric for a quilt I'm going to make for her. Of course, I could not help myself and had to buy some new goodies. I love this fun fabric. It's so cute! Now I just have to think of what I want to make out of it...
