Hubby says "It's a Keeper"!!!!!

This weekend I decided I would try a new receipe. Most of my friends know that cooking is not a natural talent for me. I found this recipe and the key word was "Easy" so I thought I'd give it a try. Rarely do I hear my husband say "that's delicious" or "that's not too bad". So when he said, this is "pretty good stuff" - I knew I had a keeper!

Easy Tortellini Soup

1 T olive oil

1 small red onion, chopped

1 zucchini, chopped

1 T minced garlic

1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomoatoes

2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

1 T White sugar

1 T Italian Seasoning

1/4 cup red wine

1 dash hot pepper sauce

1 (11 ounce) can white corn, undrained

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

8 ounces cheese tortellini

In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion, zucchini and garlic in oil three minutes, until onion is translucent. Stir in remaining ingrediants. Cook in crock pot on low for several hours.

We have a pair.......

I'm not exactly sure, but I guess these socks took me about two months to make......in between trips to the yarn store to help me repair my mistakes and then just working on other misc. unfinished work.
I would not consider myself an expert yet as I have only made two pairs of knitted socks. As I was getting toward the end I was thinking -really socks are not that expensive to buy but they are pretty fun. Well off to my next project. Linda

Hooked Rug Finished

Well I finally finished my class project from a weekend workshop I took this year with Rhonda Manley in Kansas City. The pattern is a Magdalena Briar -McCue Eagle. It was a very fun pattern to do and it was great getting to work with Rhonda! I think I just might have to hang it in the living room.

Cool, Cool Scissors!!!!
Check out this nifty scissors I found this weekend! Me and the fam were camping for the three day weekend and on a side trip went to an antique store and found these adorable scissors. How fun - now I have one tool that will measure and cut. I've also been busy working on my second knitted sock so hopefully will have that to show you in a couple of days. I love these three day weekend feels like you get so much done and we couldn't have asked for better weather!
