pad thai for dinner …

And the best part? Apart from the taste, that is? The girl cooked it for me! I chopped and sliced and diced and whisked and mixed (and photographed the proceedings) but she did all the hard work. DH went off to work with the left-overs for lunch … if the girl had been up before […]

breaking the rules …

There’s an unspoken rule, isn’t there, that when you purchase a quilt kit, you have to use the fabrics provided! Hmm … I know why that rule exists. You’ve paid for the kit, you need to use the kit. Oh yes, and something about the kit designer knowing best in regards to which fabrics work […]
