I was struggling with Q...then it came to me when I woke up this morning. 

We have been eating lots more good grains lately. Quinoa is one of my favorites.

Made this the other night. It's a real keeper. A little labor intensive, but worth it. 

This gals food site has nice inspiration.

Roasted veggies (your choice, just clean out the fridge). Marinated Chick Peas,

Pomegranate molasses is my new favorite addition. 

Feta on top.

The cooked then roasted Quinoa is what makes it so good!


have a nice week end. Maybe make something yummy & healthy to eat.

One of the many things I've dabbled in over my lifetime of fiber art endeavors.

 I inherited these unfinished needlepoint canvases from my grandmother & great aunt. 

They graced our dining room chairs decades ago. 

I'm glad I saved them when I recovered the chairs. 

These large moths intrigue me.

The last one is from Mr. Finch.
His world is worth taking a look at. 

I can see some large flying creatures in my future/

Since nature is my biggest inspiration I'll share my love of pods. 


Many of my stencils are inspired by pods. I have a Pinterest page 

dedicated to images I've saved.

My much loved lotus pod I use often.


An example of one of my pod like stencils.


Realized I totally missed N. Will get that out in a few. 

Spoiler alert...Needlepoint.
