Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Food, Fabric, Fog, and Finishes

Food.  I made something new earlier this week. Beef Stir Fry. There was a package of beef in the freezer pre-cut into stir fry strips.  I’ve not been successful with making Chinese food, but thought I’d give it a go.  I used the Easy Beef Stir Fry recipe from Spend with Pennies and served it over rice noodles and garnished with sesame seed and the scallion tops.  My vegetables were mushrooms, red bell pepper, broccoli, snap peas, onion and carrots. I will be making this again. I didn’t think to take a picture of the meal, but Sherbert was ready to eat.

Fabric. First up the fabric for my version of Athena by GE Designs.  I’ve pulled all but 4 of the fabrics from my stash.  Of course, I haven’t cut the purple, so I don’t know if each piece is big enough for what I need.  I can work from strips since all my star points will be purple and I’m using the yellow as the accent.

Fabric Part 2 I will be recovering dining room chairs in the near future. I’ve purchased this stripe fabric for the two arm chairs from a local shop.

This purple will be for the side chairs. This was a special order at the local shop (15 yards!) and I only need 2 yards. After searching on line I found an on-line source where I could by it by the yard and sent for a swatch.  I don’t know if it’s the exact fabric, but I like it, so have ordered it.

On the way home fog was rolling in.

Finishes is used for the alliteration, but it’s really Window/Floor Trim that is needed to Finish my front rooms.  The windows are only about 10″ off the floor.  This is the combination I’m considering in the living room and dining room.  My brother will be here for 2 weeks starting Monday to help me with the trim work in the house, so I need to hurry up and make a decision.
