I've made some big shawls...but now I'm crocheting little matching shawls for their dolls, for Christmas gifts. Join in the "Yarn along" here!
I just finished reading "A Fine Balance" by Rohinton Mistry. What an interesting book! Many horrible things that happened in India in the 1970s make me appreciate our life. There were parts that were wonderful...the main characters, Dina, Ishvar, Narayan, and Maneck cooking together, laughing, like a family. ♥
It made me want to try Indian recipes. Yesterday I made parippu (a lentil curry with coconut milk), and ate it with homemade pita (I will try making chapati soon, basically the same, one is baked in the oven, the other cooked on the stove top)...and today I made chana masala (chickpeas, ginger, garlic, onions, etc.) and we ate it with rice and potatoes & carrots. My girls would like me to serve food on banana leaves, as they do in India. So many wonderful vegan Indian recipes!
Last year, I read "Life of Pi." Now, it's been made into a movie. Another story of people from India, who are out at sea, on their way to Canada, when their ship sinks...what happens as Pi struggles out at sea?
Art birds - My studio has them flocking all over the place! Contemplating silly drawn folk art style birds, and working them over with fiber and color, fabric bits...
