Earlier today, I was looking at the Hawthorne Threads newsletter and there were a few prints I liked so I ended up on their website. Unfortunately, because of that, I had to add yet another quilt on my to-do list. You see, they have a new "feature" were they will match solids with every collection so it's easier for us to buy coordinating solids (and I LOVE that !) but I saw a color combination that I feel in love with.
This is the collection I was looking at (just the text & music note print).
See the pink/orange/green/grey at the bottom ?
Isn't it lovely ?
I know, the colors are very fresh, which is not what one would expect to see at this time of the year but what can I say ? I love colors. I love fresh, bright, feminine colors.
This is what I found in my stash that matched the colors.
Hopefully, my (first!) pregnant friend will have a baby girl and I will be able to use these lovely fabric for her.. if not, I'm afraid I'll have to make something for me.
Oh and on a completely random subject, I made chicken and rice soup last night and it was GOOD.
Like real good.
In case anybody is interested, here's how I made it :
I cooked 1 chopped onion, 1 cup chopped carrots, 1 cup chopped celery in a bit of olive oil. Then you add some spices (I used thyme, basil and maybe another one but I can't remember). Then add 8-9 cups of chicken broth, 2 cups of cooked chicken (in small pieces) and the rice (2 cups uncooked - mine is a gluten free mix). You let it simmer for 20-25 minutes and then enjoy.
It smells soooo good !
And I made some progress on the Somesert Star pillow I'm working on (in exchange of some Good Folks, you remember ?)
It is still missing 2-3 rows but I'm getting there !
Well, I'm off to making 3 pouches !
Have a good day everyone :)
