not much to say today (huh)!


I made a halfhearted attempt at cleaning up outside this morning
it was too cold so I stopped!!
and anyway I was disturbing the birds eating
and they let me know in no uncertain terms
cheeky buggers

my mojo has stayed with me so I whipped up a new mat
with
" the block I couldn't stop making"
last year
I used the lovely mustard yellow cotton I found
at the useless craft store

they finally got the new colours in
so I bought a few and now have the need to make more
cloths!!
talk about back to square one!!
but I am using newly learnt stitches!!
Isn't this purple one just gorgeous with the
honeycomb stitch?
LOVE texture!!



I had to cut the hyacinth flowers off the plants
because they got so heavy they kept falling over
so I put them in the pretty jug
on the new mat
in the new lovely colour
on the table

and over the last few days
a certain
flickr/blogfriend
has been teasing me with her cooking

Mary

:)

in the ancient town of
L'Aquila
(that was also hit by a mighty earthquake)

has been showing her delicious cooking
lasagna first, just like my Mama used to make
and then
gnocchi
home made
 with sauce
so I got up and made myself some

gnocchi that is

I had a few for lunch with just butter and cheese
'coz I didn't want have to wait for a sauce to cook
I'll make some later
and I'll get some lasagna noodles
and make some of that
soooon
very sooon




so on that delicious note
I bid you
adieu
farewell
and
toodlepip
my friends
I see by the clock it is
tea time
so I'm off to have a cup

OH
 and
 HAPPY SPRING
Equinox
be cool!!

I love gnocchi! I just might make that for tea tomorrow (mainly due to the fact I've just eaten today's tea of pesto pasta)! :)

If you didn't have a lot to say, you did have a lot to show! Love both the mat and the cloth to be. Spring colors!
