Saturday snippets

in which our plucky heroine has a nice visit with Vandy and June, who stopped by to pick up the square galvanized pots....

Today was supposed to be rainy. There had been some rain overnight, but I zoomed out to the grocery store when I first got up, so as to not get caught on my bike in the rain. And then, it didn't. At least it stayed sort of cool, and mostly overcast. I put together a new batch of pot stickers, (now on a cookie sheet in the freezer, prior to being packaged up for future meals) this time mixing in a half a dozen shrimps chopped up into the mostly pork, green onion, and cabbage filling. As hoped, the addition adds a nice flavor; five of them turned into my dinner tonight, just to check.

One misty moisty morning, Boneclaw Mother and Nanny Og, hanging out underneath the chicken house.


Had a wild hair today to add some rustic wool embroidery to one of my pairs of Log Cabin Mitts, as a sort of homage to Dottie Angel's "wooly tattoos" with which she embellishes assorted woolies, and encourages others to do as well. For some reason, ever since I finished the mostly brown/grey pair of mitts, they seem to have been calling out for some decoration...
Of course, I will need to finish my SCA flag applique, and the new (larger) hat for baby Kestrel first, but it would never do to run out of handwork
