Well after going to quilting group this morning, where I sat and hand stitched a little bit of a Christmas project I'll maybe show you in a day or two once I've done a bit more on it, and popping into the bank whilst in town with some school paying-in (in my own time I might add!) I came home to stitch and cook.
Cooking will be for tea tonight - Chicken and White Bean Casserole.
This comprises of browned chopped chicken breast cooked in a 'gravy/sauce' of chicken stock, chicken gravy thickening combined with three tins of various soups lurking in the back of the cupboard - ie pea, lentil and mixed vegetable. Then to all this I added tinned cannellini and flageolet beans, chick peas and green lentils. The final top secret ingredient is white turnip and butternut squash boiled up in chicken stock and mashed to obscurity prior to adding it to the casserole complete with cooking water in the vain hope that my almost totally veggie-phobic son won't twig that it's in there. At least this way he'll get some of the vitamins from them because the ONLY veg I can get past his lips is garden peas - pain in the rear little chap he can be!
Then onto stitching and as you can see from the photo the border's on the baby quilt - I'm not sure - I think it looks a little bland and might just hand applique some light and dark blue largish stars in two opposite corners to lift that boring border up out of the doldrums. Then to sandwich, large meander quilt and bind with the duller light blue - just like that!
