It put me in the mood to sketch tulips, and at least I could do that with my feet up! It's definitely time to move from winter scenes to spring scenes. I picked the tulips up last week; they are pretty wilted, so I did a quite gestural sketch.
Yesterday, I was determined to finish my Tetagouche Hill piece, and I did. It surely helped that I didn't have to stop to make dinner being on my own this week.
I got it done (I'm calling it done, making myself stop), backing and binding on. All that remains is to hand stitch back the binding and add a label.
Here is a look at the back before I sandwiched it, finished the quilting and added a backing. A lot of thread.
In my kitchen today, I have my sprouts ready to eat, chick peas cooked (they are so much more tasty than the canned ones) and some pea shoots just sprouting.
I will use a few of the chick peas, freeze the rest and take a them out as needed. It's the first time I've tried growing the pea shoots; now that I see how easy it is, I'll do more. They're delicious on a salad and oh so much more appreciated when you've grown them yourself!
A good start to the week. I hope your Monday is just as nice as mine.
I know it's not for a friend of mine who has come down with the flu/cold. Take care, feel better soon.
