Can I get a "cute"?
How could I resist showing off that photo of Molly the pinky-nosed (wild) Cat's recent cuteness.
So, what kind of little of this, little of that have you been doing while staying at home?
This afternoon I made a delectable dish of creamy brown rice and mushed red lentils that I savored slowly, the way I do with desserts. Sure I'll combine brown rice, lentils, fresh garlic, kim chee, and eggs again, but the exquisite taste (there I go floating) won't ever get repeated, even if I knew the amounts I used. Oh well, c'est la vie. :-)
Clackity clack clack clackity clack clack. . . . I've been sewing covers for the outside pillows. See the top two pillows. The covers were made from Mama's nightgowns that she liked but hardly wore. Must wear out the old stuff first you know. The fabric of the flowered pillow on the bottom is from the Husband's mom's stash. I wonder what she was going to do with the upholstery quality material. There was about 3 or 4 yards, from which I sewed covers for two pillows and two chairs. The green and white striped fabric is leftover from my sewing mania days in the 1990s.
Sewing zippers is like driving on a steep cliff without any guardrails. Gulp. Gulp. Sweaty palms. Someone tell me sewing a zipper is easy-peasy.
I'm still doing the online Sketchbook Revival Workshop. The collage shows what I've done so far. On the right is my quirky bird who thinks it's truly an elephant. At the top left are doodles that started with a smeared blob of paint. Smear paint, turn the paper around until you see something then outline it.
Mister Green Face evolved from a cross drawn in a circle. Next to him is a sketch I drew with my non-dominant hand. I don't recall which one was created during a portrait session. In that session I discovered I'm not interested in drawing real-life faces. Good to know.
I saw the first apple blossom on the green apple tree yesterday. Yippieeeeee!
