The jacket I plan to wear this with, because I would never go bare armed with it, is at the cleaners, so the minute it comes back, I may take a photo of me in it. The way things have been going though, I really don't know when I will stop spinning around to have time to do this, so I can't promise it will be that soon.
Next up, cutting into this wonderful Italian wool to make ................................
this coat. I know it is pretty bright, but it won't be my main coat. I plan to only wear it when I'm in the mood for a shot of color. This coat has no lining, and has raglan sleeves, so it should come together pretty easily; said the person who thought the above blouse would be a quick sew up. Before I cut into this lovely wool , I will first do a non garment project, that I have been meaning to make. I'll surprise you, and just post it when I'm done.
Since it is now turning seasons, I decided some butternut squash,chicken, ricotta raviolis were in order. Ever since I bought my kitchen aid pasta attachment, I have been loving how easy it is to make fresh pasta right before dinner. The filling was made up by me. I roasted some butternut squash, then mixed it with cooked ground chicken and ricotta. Seasoned with a bit of thyme. I decided to make them on the lighter side, so I didn't make a sauce for them, instead I used chicken broth. I really liked how you could really taste the flavors in the filling, because of the broth being not so over powering.
Even though I made all of these........
I still had a lot of filling left over, perhaps I could use it as a spread? I just didn't have the heart to toss it.
I've gotten my cooking groove back, since summer is now leaving us. I'm not too great at grilling and making summer dishes. I'm one of those, who comes to life in the fall months.
What have you been cooking and sewing???
