I have been trying to find balance in Korean BBQ sauce. Somewhere along the line, more like 6 months ago on the line, I made a Korean BBQ Taco Recipe for this weekends' Food and Wine Affair. I made it not thinking of the actual work that it would entail in the final hours. And yet, here I sit blogging the night before. I must have planned well.
The honest truth is that I stopped doing anything else. No quilting, no sewing, no nothing. I just cooked and cooked and went to bed early. This gets the job done but is no fun at all. Especially when I get these in the mail:
And just for fun here are a few of my Wee Wonderful creations I made from patterns before her book. They are made mostly from vintage napkins.
Wee Wonderfuls was the very first Blog that I read. I was pregnant with Ida and home alone when I found her. What a joy!. She inspired me to really begin sewing and through her work I continue to discover more of the craft world.
like Inside a Black Apple where I found this super doll pattern to make these ladies:
and so THANK YOU HILARY!
But currently I am on a quilting kick and trying to finish my Tomatillo Quilt when I discover Lucy and Norman.
And how? She was the first person to comment on my blog. I think she started sewing just 2 years ago and has completed an impressive number of gorgeous quilts, is raising a beautiful girl and from what I can tell making wine! She is my current inspiration as I am determined to make a quilt worth keeping.In the meantime, between making quilts and babies try this Korean BBQ sauce - good on tacos made from anything from tofu to butt.
