Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


Bits & pieces …

I’ve been working on patterns, and finally got this beaded bag ready to put up at Patternfish.

Crystal Beaded Bag

I hope to add more designs soon, including the shawl Amber’s modeling here (once I get the pattern written).

We had an abrupt change of weather overnight. This morning there was no doubt that it’s November—perfect soup weather. I got a couple of nice big stewing hens when we went to Soulard Farmers’ Market in St. Louis on Saturday, so I made a pot of soup (chicken, rice, carrots, onions and mushrooms) with the broth and most of the meat from 1 and put the other in the freezer for later.

I also came home with some squash that I’ll probably roast, though I might just cook the acorn squash in the microwave and put the usual butter and brown sugar on it.

The rest of the tomatoes are slowing turning color, so we still have a few left 🙂

The last ones ...
