Springtime is rhubarb season and I got a bunch today at the Saurauren farmers market and made it into a cobbler. I’d link but I don’t know how, but trust me on this one, it came out perfectly. I was worried it would be sour but it was not! Go! Make one! NOW!

There are 5 complete blocks but only 4 fit in the picture. This is just to give you a better idea of where all that yellow is headed. So far so good. I’m one fifth done and worried I’ll run out of fabric. I suppose I’ll have a better idea after the next stack of [...]
Somehow, while cutting fabric, I managed to slice off a really big chunk of my finger. Off my left hand, does anyone see a running theme here? At first I thought I might need a stitch but as I ran it under cold water I realized there was nothing to stitch, just a gaping hole [...]
I went to a quilt show this morning in St.Catharines. I think it was my first ever so I really didn’t know what to expect. There were lots of…quilts. Maybe I’m spoiled by hanging around the workroom and admiring fantastic quilts on etsy and flickr, but it seemed to me that a lot of what [...]
I spotted this herb at W the other day and was completely stumped. Minthi? Never heard of it. One might assume it is mint, but it’s so different in every way from any mint I’m familiar with: the leaves are small and soft like oregano and it smells great, very fragrant. It smelled Indian to [...]
I found another dinner size plate yesterday, not by Johnson Bros, but close, it is Stafforshire. It’s a dark brown transfer and the plate is in pristine condition. I also got these on a whim. Well, more as a knee jerk. I mean, for $1.99, how could I resist? Amazing! No, they aren’t Lacoste alligators, [...]
Just what I need, right? More stuff? Well, hopefully this collection will turn into a pile of beautiful, usable, things, namely dishes. I just like china, it’s much nicer than eating of cheapo, crappo normal plates. I have 2 of the small saucer size plates and I also have one dinner plate that’s in pink [...]
I want to update using the wordpress app so I’m giving it a whirl. It is a still from a movie. Do you know which one?
And I gots my strut on. This handsome fellow was outside the Skydome Roger’s Centre when I went to the Jays game last Friday against Detroit. Hard for me, what with my serious love of all things Detroit, but I’m a Toronto girl at heart. Birdy was hoping for hotdog bun and birdy was not [...]
This is after an enormous amount of sushi and a giant slice of iced cream cake. Hopefully that excuses the look of discomfort. Taken to mark my 39th birthday. I had a great day, thanks, I did a bunch of lounging, then I went to VV and got a couple plates, some black and white [...]
