As the month winds down to a close, I am moving along on all of my July goals. Here are a few progress photos to document that claim:
Indy 2006 Town Square Series' The Silversmith Shop. I made a start on this on 7/26 and it is moving much more quickly than Cafe du Monde. Happily, there is not a confetti stitch in sight. For the most part, this piece is stitched in blocks of color, with all the shading accomplished by using over dyed floss.
Sewing and Assembly Finishes. I plan on spending a few hours at the sewing machine after breakfast. I have a dozen or so ornaments, a throw pillow and two small pin pillows in my finishing pile. It remains to be seen how many of these projects I manage to get to today. I will post photos at the end of the day.
IN THE GARDEN:
I had a tidy little harvest this morning: three cucumbers, 5 baby eggplant and a good sized sprig of miniature basil. I'll be using the eggplant and basil at lunch, sauteed with onions, peppers and pignoli nuts, moistened with a bit of chicken stock and half & half and served over farfale [bow tie pasta]. The cucumbers will be thinly sliced with onion and dressed with a light vinaigrette as a salad to accompany lunch.
