Today's theme it would seem, is orange and green. I was struck with the vibrancy of these colours in my food today!
Asian Coleslaw, made from that wonderful cabbage I received. Its essentially the same ingredients as a regular coleslaw (cabbage, carrot, spring onion and celery today), but with a delicious light dressing. (Sweet chilli sauce, lime juice, fish sauce and garlic in a ratio of 4tsp-2tsp-2tsp-1tsp)
Pumpkin soup, pre-puree. Everyone knows how to make this right! Mine just has lots of pumpkin, celery, carrot, onion, garlic and cumin.
And continuing on with my green theme, this is the first quilt I ever made.
At a time of brute anxiety and nervous tension, I had to be busy and just began sewing squares together. I had never quilted before because I had let my ideas of doing things 'properly' stop me from doing things at all. This quilt represents me learning to let go, and facing my fear of producing something embarassingly shitty. I learned that an imperfect reality is better than a perfect (and never realized) idea.
Spurred on by the wonderful support of friends, in blogland and beyond, I am gestating an idea. Inspired by "Regretsy" and all those people who audition for talent shows despite not having any, I am cooking up a plan.
Its not quite ready yet..
