Well, it was a cloudy, breezy, rainy weekend here courtesy of Tropical Storm Ana. Which is kinda good ’cause I can stay inside all day cooking, sewing and knitting and not feel guilty about not enjoying the great outdoors, because really, who wants to enjoy a downpour!
First up, we have the delicious Mushroom and Leek Galette. I adapted it from this recipe. I left out the fennel and olives (because gross!) and increased the mushrooms and leeks (because yum!). I also substituted Gruyere cheese for Fontina cheese, because…reasons that’s why!
I actually saw the green eyelet fabric last summer and just HAD to have a summer dress lined in navy… which didn’t happen. Then I decided I HAD to make the dress for a wedding…..which was last weekend. Oh well, better late than never! [ask me how my husband’s Christmas present is coming along ]
In other news, the garden has started to come in! We picked our first handful of green beans. However, the husband is weird and doesn’t actually like fresh green beans. So, not everyone was as excited about this development. [In his defense despite not liking them he will eat pretty much anything I put in front of him-except mushrooms….and raisins] Maybe at some point I’ll share they way I prepare them so he actually likes them 🙂
And finally, dear reader, we have what I have re-named The Neverending Sweater! I’m about 2/3 of the way through the first sleeve. I really can’t blame the sweater though, I have a bad tendency to stop a project for weeks (or months) when I come to a logical stopping point…like say finishing the body. I always come back to it though….eventually
And so that concludes what I’ve been working on. The school year is over, which means I should have more time for sewing, knitting, etc- HOORAY! But it also means I’ll have less hours and less money- BOOO HISS! So, tune in next week to see what progress (or lack of progress) I make… or you know don’t 😉
