The End of the Weekend

Sunday nights are always bittersweet -- I always make time to get some stitching in, but it also means that the end of the weekend is here and the beginning of another work week is just around the corner.

Tonight we had a delicious supper - it felt like we were at Olive Garden, but we never left home.  A few weeks ago I found the recipe for Pasta e Fagioli on Pinterest and today I decided to give it a try.  Warning about this recipe -- you need a super large crockpot or else you will need two crockpots to cook it in.  I didn't mind having the large quantity; I just froze about a third of it for another meal down the road.

Here's what our supper looked like - caesar salad, crusty vienna bread and Pasta e Fagioli! Yum!


You can find the recipe for the soup here:  Pasta e Fagioli

I've been working on a little hardanger lately.  Purchased a Permin kit that included the patterns for six different angels.  I finished up one of the angels tonight (sorry for the dark photo.)


I hope to stitch up a number of these angels for Christmas gifts.  Keep your fingers crossed that I will have time to finish several of them!

That's all I've got for you tonight.  Hope you had a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

The angel is beautiful. Where did you find the kit? Can't wait to see some of the other designs. What a great gift idea.

Beautiful angel! That dinner looks wonderful! I am always a little sad to see the weekend come to a close even though I know another one will be around soon.

I am such a lover of soups so thanks for the link to the recipe...not sure my crockpot is large enough but I can work round that.

Wow, your angel is beyond gorgeous. Did you use floss or pearl cotton when stitching it? I STILL need to try my hand at hardanger. I bought a few books about a year ago but never got around to it...what's wrong with me! :D
