Tapas on Sunday

Sunday brunch has replaced the Sunday dinners of yesterday. We are now experimenting with tapas, the delightful Spanish appetizer. We both love anchovies and these are imported from Spain and served atop a fire roasted tomato. We were gifted a loaf of homemade peasant bread which is a perfect base. We also used pesto and crumbled chèvre. This Sunday I shall add another with manchego sliced very thin and bresaola.

We brushed the bread with olive oil and grilled.

Pot Holders were a fun project and a reminder of some of my first crafts.

A class at the Modern Sewist in Sarasota.

Needlepoint and Quilting make the days go faster!

Moving the office downstairs has been an adventure to say the least. I reorganized paper work and refiled and Jack became the keeper of the shredder. I cannot believe the "stuff" I accumulated. I have one more pile and then must force myself to file or shred.

The cubbies in the desk have been cleaned and organized and the desk shelf holds some favorite little things.

There is actually a clear place to work!

This vintage Hermes typewriter makes a lovely vignette on the desk. To my right is a featherweight sewing center. I have pieced a couple of small quilts.

I am working on my studio and hopefully I shall post more regularly now that I have a "sign" for my office. This needlepoint canvas spoke my name when I saw it and reminded me how much I had enjoyed my blog. 

The canvas is designed by Madeleine Elizabeth of Oasis Needlepoint,

Hope to see you all soon.

Now if I can just remember how to edit the side bar!
