of kitties, critters and food porn

Kitties in readiness.  They just know that if they are patient enough, or the gods are with    them,  one of the birds will materialize in their house and they can dispatch it in devastatingly   feathery haste.  …or the squirrel, the chipmunk, rat, bug, leaf, etc..
Being bound by the walls of my houses they feast on the sights they can get from the windows.  Sometimes, when they are especially excited, this is to the detriment of anything laying on the surfaces they want to be on.  I often come downstairs to papers on the floor, spools of thread that have fallen and rolled, or the occasional box of pins that has now flung itself, with help of course, all over the floor.  There are times when the pin in my toe is how this one gets noticed. -sigh- I love them.

There was a lot accomplished this week.  I finished pieces for my friend Eide.  Her new pumpkin colored skirt and creamy partlet are on their way to her.

I couldn’t  believe how long her skirt took me, but it is worth all the effort and perforating .

The potluck was Mediterranean, and as always it was amazing.  I am pretty sure I dreamed of Bobby’s Moroccan meatballs .  This next week is South O’ the Border.  Not sure what I am doing yet, but it will be another yummy Friday.  Which of course leads to to more foodie goodness, and the food porn reference!  Riki Robinson invited Rhonni and I to go with him to a dinner that was being thrown for the Tortuga Twins by a fan on Monday.  She, Jacquelyn, is an aspiring chef, and wanted to do a Twins inspired meal.  All I really have to say is, WOW!!!  Everything was utterly amazing.  It was coursed, and she had themed each course for one of the boys.  The other delights prepared also had cute names, like “Audience of Screaming Fans”. This was a cocktail made with jalapeno-infused vodka.  OMG! It was soo good.  I am afraid I may have gushed praise everywhere, but I couldn’t help it.

Food Porn.  Rhonni makes gorgeous food, but taking pictures of gorgeous food is hard.  There are lots of factors that just keep it from photographing well.  She and I have been having conversations about software, where to take the pics, having the right equipment, good lighting… you know, photo-geek stuff with a food theme.
Riki has a nice little camera, and it was sitting next to me at dinner, so I took loads of pictures of the food.  I was drinking, so there were more pics than really necessary, but hey; all in good fun, right? *grin*
So there you have it.  There was sewing(as always), there was food(as always), and fun(as always).
I sense a pattern here. Hmmmmm….
Till next time, Cheers~
